A Diet Well Worth Investigating
Discovering the right way to lose weight can mean the difference between life and death for some.
Success Story: Scott Miller
WEIGHT LOSS: 101 Pounds
He investigated just about every diet. He tried Weight Watchers, but it didn’t work. Sampled Nutrisystem, only to discover he didn’t have a taste for it—stuffed it right back in the box. Went on Atkins with a lot “at steak,” but decided it simply didn’t cut it (or his weight). Meet serial dieter Scott Miller, the guy who inspected many diets throughout his life, only to be left craving something more. It wasn’t until he met the folks at BodyTech Weight Loss and Health in Rockville, Maryland that this straight-talking DC government investigator was finally on the trail of something good— something really good— that could stick.
Forty, Caucasian and male, this married father of two was your typical overweight suspect. He easily confessed to being a yo-yo dieter who watched his weight go up and down throughout his adult life. Co-workers have often pegged him as an unstable type—in the weight department. Yet, to others, his life appeared to be ideal. Ideal, except, of course for, his diet. That all changed once he crossed paths with Larry Kay, owner of BodyTech and a guy who could get just about anyone to lose it (by that we mean weight) and possibly the candy bar in one’s pocket, too.
Now middle-aged (Sorry Scott, but we must tell the truth), weight was more of a serious concern for this loving husband and father who was looking to live a long time. Knowing his health was far from optimal, and wanting to be around to watch his kids grow up he needed to do something about the extra 100 pounds he was carrying… once and for all.
It was a sunny afternoon, as Scott recalls, when his wife (an incredibly good looking, kind hearted, lady to be married to Scott – as he’ll tell you) shared some remarkable photos of family friends who had miraculously lost 100+ pounds. Not one to believe in diet miracles, he asked his wife to find out how this slim pair got so good looking. She found out it was, in fact, BodyTech and Ideal Protein behind their great losses. Scott’s deep craving to finally lose his excessive weight drove him to the doors of BodyTech where an ace team of health coaches finally set his diet straight…or so they thought. You see, it took two rounds on the diet for Scott to finally come to grips with what he’d done to his body. During his first attempt, he successfully lost an amazing 71 pounds before breaking from the program. Like a dog off a chain, his diet wandered, and his weight began to increase once again until one day he received a tough-talking call from Larry Kay, telling him to stop hiding and to get back on the program. Scott caved. After all, he knew this was for the best. This time, fully committed, Scott lost 100+ pounds–meeting his goal weight of 179 pounds.
Fully compliant, Scott has learned some powerful, life transforming lessons in eating correctly during his journey at BodyTech. He is now committed to maintaining healthy eating principals for life, and has promised himself he’ll check in at BodyTech regularly—a mere once a month visit to help him ensure weight stability and an ideal way of life.
At BodyTech, each case is different, and no weight loss journey is the same. For Scott, the dieting program and support he has found at the clinic have reformed his relationship with food. Admittedly, Scott will tell you he doesn’t yet see himself as a “thin guy” (even though the scale says otherwise), but he’s working on that. “It’s a bit of a mind game thing,” he speculates, and something he’s sure he’ll come to terms with soon.
What he is clear about is that throughout all his years of weight loss trials, there has never been one as successful, so sensible, and downright effective as BodyTech’s program combined with their realistic coaching. And because of this, he knows his search is over. BodyTech is the place he’ll seek guidance from to manage his weight forever.
Q&A with Scott
What have you learned from the weight loss program at BodyTech?
I need to take responsibility for my weight. I am the only one who can lose it and keep it off, so now I own that for myself and my family.
What are you most proud of as a result of your weight loss?
That I achieved my weight loss goal— for myself and my family. I’m healthier, happier and I have more energy now.
What’s your favorite food?
I love the Ideal Protein Trail Mix, it tastes great and isn’t a restricted food.
What used to be your diet weakness?
Candy, Halloween candy was a dangerous temptation for me. Now, not so much.
How has your mindset changed on the Ideal Protein protocol?
I used to fool myself, thinking I could lose weight and then eat whatever I wanted. Now I know I have to eat healthier always. I can have the occasional cheat day, but I can’t go whole hog wild all the time and expect to not gain. Doing so would be really stupid after all I’ve accomplished.
Do you have any tips for new dieters?
You must let BodyTech help you. Don’t just look for Ideal Protein, look for the expert guidance of the BodyTech in Rockville, MD. The diet combined with BodyTech coaches — their approach and support — that’s what really makes for serious diet success. Honestly, the whole program is what every dieter needs. Truly they are the secret to what made my weight loss such a success!
