Nourished and Satisfied
“I went on my first diet at the age of 15. I remember the snap of my "NO" when my boyfriend at the time asked for a bite of my only allowed snack, a half piece of peanut butter toast. This diet made me mean because it didn’t satisfy me.”
As a young adult, Susan became interested in health and grew preoccupied with finding the "perfect" diet and exercise plan to get and keep her slim.
“I read books, took courses and studied in search of that "perfect plan". I tried juicing, fasting, raw, vegan, paleo — and yet I would always be hungry and have cravings for sweets.”
Susan exercised every day, ate organic, and taught yoga but was still overweight, tired, hungry, and unsatisfied. She knew she couldn’t sustain being hungry forever.
“A nutritionist friend of mine introduced me to the idea of becoming an OPTAVIA Coach. So I tried the OPTAVIA Optimal Weight 5 & 1 Plan® to understand what my Clients would experience. Of course, I was still in search for a way to lose that extra weight!”
Susan was skeptical at first because she didn’t think a medically formulated program was her “thing". But after her first Fueling, her brain and body felt satisfied, something that she hadn’t experienced from green juice and raw almonds.
“I was transformed! I loved the Program's ease and structure. I loved having more energy and not feeling hungry or being ruled by my cravings. I was beyond excited that this Program was something I could do for the long run.”
Susan reached her target weight* without stress or struggle and continues to maintain her healthy weight in her 50s by following the Habits of Health®.
“I am nourished daily by our incredible Community of support and I am filled with a sense of meaning when I can help people with what I had struggled with for so long. My pain became my purpose and I can offer hope.”
Susan loves that her husband and children get to see me build a career and lifestyle that is so rewarding and fulfilling.
“They saw me grow and become successful. Before coaching, we had no money in the budget to go out to eat or take vacations. We missed family celebrations that required flying out of town. Now we can pay for college and create more fun memories together.**”
I cannot imagine life without this Program. It has meant so much to me and my family. I feel nourished and truly satisfied now!”
