Manny Lost 50 Pounds on NutriMost! He also got his health back!

By Dr. Jon Thomas, DC, PSc.D, Board Certified Chiropractic Physician. 

Manny weighed 280 pounds when he started on NutriMost. His cholesterol and blood pressure were high. He lost 44 lbs in 40 days and continued to lose weight after that. While losing fifty pounds overall, Manny also saw big improvements on cholesterol and blood pressure. He also stopped snoring. Here’s what he had to say about NutriMost.

“I wanted to get back on track. However, I was nervous about starting the program. I kept it to myself and didn’t even tell my family about it. Once I knew that it was actually working, I really took off with it. I’ve learned what works for me and what does not. For example, I thought walnuts were a healthy snack, but I found out that they don’t work well for me. I also found out that I can eat pizza, and that does work well for me. So, I can’t complain. Learning about what works and what doesn’t has been awesome.
“Communications with Dr. Thomas were very important. In the first two weeks, I was having lots of doubts about the program and lots of cravings. Dr. Thomas was with me every step of the way. I’ve been through lots of other programs. I’ve been in programs that involved group meetings, online check-ins, pills, and none of those programs worked for me. Dr. Thomas was able to show me exactly what would work for me. He was also very encouraging. I now have energy, day and night. On my fifth day in the program, I stopped snoring. My lady loved that.”

There’s more to NutriMost than just losing weight.
For many people, losing weight is a health priority. It’s a well-known fact that getting to a healthy weight and maintaining it does much more than simply improve a person’s appearance. Manny was having serious problems with his cholesterol and blood pressure. As he lost the weight, those two items changed. Many people experience other health benefits when they lose weight the right way with NutriMost.
Hector lost 29 pounds in 40 days and continued to lose 4 more lbs by the end of the program. He also has had significant improvements in his liver
health, an area where he has been having issues since he was diagnosed with hepatitis and treated unsuccessfully for it at twenty years old. Over the next several decades of his life, he received many treatments for hepatitis. Some of them were experimental. Tests showed that the hepatitis was gone after the treatments he received. However, the hepatitis always returned.  
At the age of 45, he had a biopsy and he was diagnosed with stage two hepatic fibrosis, fibrosis of the liver. The National Institutes for Health define hepatic fibrosis as follows: “Liver fibrosis is the excessive accumulation of extracellular matrix proteins including collagen that occurs in most types of chronic liver diseases. Advanced liver fibrosis results in cirrhosis, liver failure, and portal hypertension and often requires liver transplantation.”
It’s a very serious condition and one that doctors say is irreversible. After losing weight on NutriMost, Hector wanted to look into new treatments for his liver. He got a state-of-the-art MRI, which showed “zero fibrosis” and negligible fat in his liver. Weight loss allows the liver to repair itself. He still has hepatitis, but very few symptoms and no liver damage per say. When the liver is working properly, it reduces the presence of toxins in the body. Hector found out that losing weight the right way can produce very positive health results.
Additional Benefits of Losing Weight
Heart Attacks: Plaque buildup can result in narrowed arteries. During a heart attack, the coronary artery becomes completely blocked. This cuts off the oxygen that your heart needs to continue to function. Losing weight can significantly reduce the risk of heart attack. The more you lose, the more you reduce your risk.
Cancer: Obesity increases the risk of getting cancer. The risk of getting certain types of cancers is significantly reduced when a person loses weight. This is particularly true for breast and uterine cancer.
Dementia: Many Americans have too much visceral fat. That’s the abdominal fat that surrounds internal organs. Visceral fat releases chemicals that cause inflammation. Inflammation can lead to memory loss, and it can ultimately increase the risk of dementia. Reducing visceral fat reduces the risk.
Sleep Apnea: When people become overweight, extra tissue thickens the windpipe wall and narrows the airway. This creates a dangerous condition in which a person stops taking in enough oxygen while sleeping. Losing weight can widen the windpipe and help people sleep through the night.
Arthritis and Joint Pain: Extra weight puts a tremendous strain on the joints. Losing weight reduces the pressure on joints. As people lose weight, the cushioning between bones builds back up and they become more comfortable moving around.
Diabetes: People who are overweight are at risk for developing diabetes. Excess weight reduces the cells’ sensitivity to insulin. Insulin is the hormone that regulates the movement of sugar into your cells. Losing weight reduces the risk of diabetes.
The health issues I’ve been writing about should be enough to motivate most people to lose their excess weight. However, there are several other factors that could be considered bonuses for losing weight.
For example, as a person’s overall health improves, the need for expensive prescription medications is reduced and sometimes eliminated completely. That’s a bonus, you can feel where it counts – right in the wallet.
Another important bonus is that people feel more energetic when they’re not lugging an extra 20 to 40 pounds around. When people lose weight and get health conditions under control, they feel better.
A closely related benefit of losing weight and becoming healthier is an improved sex drive. A person’s sex drive can be dramatically affected by prescription drugs, high blood pressure, diabetes, and other conditions related to excess weight. For most people, better health and more energy equate to an improved sex life.

  1. There are all kinds of diet programs out there. The problem is that most of them are 1-size-fits-all programs that just don't work. What's amazing about NutriMost is that the program is customized to the individual. A friend of mine used it to drop 30 pounds in 30 days. That was 3 months ago. He didn't starve himself and he didn't put the weight back on. When it comes to dieting, it doesn't get any better than that.

  2. It's amazing how fast people take the weight off and keep it off with NutriMost! If you lose weight the right way, it works.

  3. Every word of this article is true. I know because I am mentioned in it! :D

  4. One of the greatest things is the customization and working directly with Dr. Jon, today not many Doctor's take the time daily to communicate with their patients to help them when they need it. It is awesome to watch all the patients and their stories and watch them enjoy life again! This is what it's about....
