"More Than Just Weight Loss" Results

by Glen Depke

I cannot believe that our 6 week "More Than Just Weight Loss" has already come to a close. We had 13 individuals in the program including myself. The ages ranged from 34 to I believe 60 years of age and there were a variety of reasons for all that entered into this commitment. These ranged from:
  • Weight loss
  • Improving energy
  • Improving sleep
  • Decrease pain
  • Decrease inflammation
  • Improve mental clarity
  • Decrease in challenging health symptoms
  • ...and more
Before we get right into the results, I want to commend those that entered into the program. We had 13 committed individuals that stuck with a nutritional plan and supplement program for 45 days. Not only this but collectively, we amassed over 350 posts on the blog with Q/A and support for each other throughout the 6 weeks. This was quite and undertaking but everyone walked away with positive results. While the results varied from person to person, I can share with you the overall averages with you. 

Average weight lost in 45 days - 11.5 pounds
Average loss in inches around the waist - 2.64 inches
Decrease in challenging health symptoms - 45 to 13

Think about it. Lose 11.5 pounds in body weight without starving yourself and zero calorie restrictions while losing enough inches to go down almost 3 pant sizes and this is not even the most amazing result in my mind. In my mind, the most amazing result is in the symptoms decrease.

Everyone in the program took and entrance and exit assessment as listed below.

Very little or not at all
Every once in a while
Some regularity
Most of the time
All the time





Acid reflux

Brain fog

Balance issues

Poor memory


Wake fatigued

Daily fatigue

Poor motivation



Often get colds

Colds go away slowly

Stiff upon waking

Stiff after sitting

Overall muscle fatigue

Weight gain

Unhealthy weight loss

As you can see we all graded these on a scale of 1 thru 5, 1 being very little or not at all, up to 5 being a challenge all the time. The entrance assessments had 45 scores of either 4 or 5 and the exit assessment had only 13 of either 4 or 5. To me, that is by far the most amazing result. To shift how you feel that significantly is a testament to the program and the commitment of those within the program. Congrats to all!

This too can be you!

I can share the with myself and my wife, both in the program, we are committed to continue much of what we incorporated during this time. It seems that a 45 day period was enough time to create some new healthy patterns that we welcome to continue. Feeling amazing just trumps over everything else at this point.

For those the were playing the wait and see approach with the 6 week program, I want to let you know that the "More Than Just Weight Loss" program will still be available to you. If you would like to find out more about entering into this program, please follow this link.
