Leslie Holstein

Leslie lost 56 lbs*!

Medifast worked for me because I did not feel like I was missing out on anything.

Family vacations were planned around what I was able to do at my weight. I had reached the point where I couldn't walk longer than a few minutes without a walker. I was taking an excess of medications, including some of the strongest pain medications on the market.

I also took high blood pressure medication, hormone pills, water pills and I was insulin resistant. My doctor said I would need cholesterol pills, as well. I tried to lose weight but either couldn't or quickly gained back what little I lost.

I learned about Medifast through my chiropractor. He thought that if I lost weight it would relieve the pressure from my back and I wouldn't need rods inserted. I committed and saw 30 lbs* drop off of me in three months! Losing weight allowed me my doctor to start easing off of reducing some of my weight-related medications and I actually saved money because Medifast cost less than all of my co-pays!

I had no hunger or cravings with Medifast. My doctor ran a metabolic panel and found that Medifast was providing all of the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that my body needed.

After eight months, I lost 56 pounds* and reached my goal weight of 132 pounds. I have been married for over 30 years and it's like dating again! My husband constantly tells me how happy he is to have his wife back.
