Enjoying a No-Guilt Holiday Dinner!

Start the new year out with N.E. Fat Loss

Adhering to a diet on special occasions has always proved challenging for Roy DeGrandpre. He was enthused when he joined New England Fat Loss (NEFL) on October 1, 2015; however, Thanksgiving Day loomed in the near future. When the big day arrived, the 54 year-old had already lost 43 pounds and gratefully approached the event with a totally new outlook.

“In the past, every time I’ve dieted, I’ve dreaded the holidays,” DeGrandpre said. “The holidays are about great family, great food and letting go, but this year was completely different. When I woke up on Thanksgiving, I told myself I was not going to go overboard, but if I saw something I wanted, I was going to try it and enjoy every bite.”

Armed with a successful diet plan and a personal nutritional menu from NEFL, DeGrandpre allowed himself to enjoy a truly satisfying Thanksgiving, knowing he had a clear direction for the day after.

“The difference this time was that I had full and complete confidence that, starting the next day, I could just follow the program again and very shortly I would be right back to my Thanksgiving morning weight,” DeGrandpre said. “There was absolutely no doubt in my mind that I would accomplish that. It took me only two days.”

At press time, DeGrandpre had lost an impressive 54 pounds just six weeks into the program. In addition to the weight loss he was also experiencing other physical benefits. For example, because he’s now carrying a lot less weight, he requires only 20 percent of his original insulin dosage to manage his diabetes. He also is experiencing quite an increase in stamina.
“I have more energy than I feel I have had in years—as far back as I can remember,”
DeGrandpre said. “A lot of that is because even when I was thinner and younger, I still wasn’t eating healthy. Anyone who is diabetic should be calling right away because your energy and health will benefit greatly.”

DeGrandpre did all the work, but he also credits the support and guidance he received from the N. E. Fat Loss staff. The hour’s commute to the Newton office from his Amherst, NH, home required additional commitment, but the effort was well worth the result. His personal interaction with the staff, whom he described as available, encouraging, friendly and knowledgeable, and with Dr. Johns, whom he would text with daily, made him feel like his weight loss was a successful team effort.
