The only negative is that the program is pretty expensive but if you’re able to make the investment in yourself, do it!
I'm an animal advocate, brain stem surgery survivor, life lover, constant learner, and so much more. I enjoy traveling, pop culture, coffee, tweeting, music, movies, photography, volunteer work, trying new things, going new places, and meeting new faces. They’re so inspiring, particularly since I used to be a personal trainer who helped people lose weight.
Now, after 8 years, Jon is about 183 pounds and hasn’t gained more than one or two back in that time. One of our favorite personal training clients (and person!) lost about 80 pounds and has kept it off for at least 5-6 years now.
When Jon finally started to lose weight, he felt it was because he finally accepted who he was — an unhappy and very fat man. He surrendered to this truth and from that acceptance, he was able to reverse his path and actually make real weight loss progress.
It wasn’t until he started to be honest about his life situation that he began to lose weight — over 200 pounds! As you probably realized from listening to this interview, Jon’s program is not so much a diet program, it’s a way to program your body to lose fat using the same techniques he used for his own weight loss.
NOTE: There is a portion of diet advice in the program that is not vegan – if you are a vegan obviously you wouldn’t follow this part. I have a friend who lost over 150 pounds and he has extra skin, he has done this amazing feat by exercise and watching what he ate.
I have been going to the gym to do cardio and light weights for toning since April this year and I feel even better than before I had the children.
On the Gabriel Method there are no planned meals, no pre-prepared meals, no counting calories like numerous diets out there. Hi, I lost 120 pounds on the HCG diet … did it in 4 rounds over 3 years but it was as much a mindset shift in my life as it was the diet in making it a successful approach to weight loss and regaining a healthy lifestyle.
I will probably never be perfect, but I can include as many positive actions each day as possible, and let it go that I didn’t have a perfect food day. I have kept off the extra 25-30 pounds I carried around for 5-6 years after my youngest, child by constantly educating myself. He has great value to share and offers people that are in need of health help through weight loss. Yes, his is another way, as there are many ways out there, but he tackles a lot of what hangs so many of us up. He also shares a lot in many health communities, from Paleo, low carb and even high raw folks. How I Lost It: Nutrisystem had the counseling and online community support I was looking for, and it was within my budget.
I started by walking to and from the mail box four times a day -- each round trip was about a block.
A yo-yo dieter, Diederich had tried Weight Watchers and Take Off Pounds Sensibly groups in the past. Now a much-thinner 250 pounds, Diederich is an inspiration to TOPS Chapter 1738, which she leads. TOPS -- a nonprofit, weight-loss support organization based in Milwaukee, with chapters worldwide -- celebrates its 60th anniversary this year. For example, she'll drink vegetable juice and eat a small bowl of cereal with low-calorie bread and a teaspoon of peanut butter for breakfast. Lunch includes a cup of soup, a sandwich with turkey and lettuce, a small salad with cucumbers and tomatoes and a glass of milk.
For dinner, she'll consume a 3-ounce piece of lean meat, a small sweet potato with spray butter, salad with low-fat dressing and fruit. Diederich, who is 5-foot-6, said the reason she succeeded this time is because she was "very determined.
Discounts valid at participating centers and at Jenny Craig Anywhere for new members enrolling in the Jenny Craig All Access program, other restrictions may apply, details available at participating centers. I personally think the program is much deeper that a what to eat program, so you’d get a ton of value regardless of this philosophical difference. He started seriously researching personal and preventative natural health therapies in 2002 when he was struck with the reality that cancer ran deep in his family and if he didn’t change the way he was living — he might go down that same path.
I actually lost weight before I found out about his program, but I fully endorse his program too. It took a year of really sensible eating afterwards to get back to my old weight -and I’ve never put it back on.

I have kept it off through a great diet now (I’m vegan, approaching raw, with lots of superfoods daily).
I would love to know more about how he managed all of that skin, as I still have excess skin that just isn’t going away.
He is not selling a diet, but great ideas on some of the mental issues we have with being obese. After about a month, I was determined to kick it into "high gear," so I went to a local lake with a wonderful walking and jogging area.
Check out her story in the 2014 Half Their Size edition of People Magazine on page 90 and find out how she lost 323 pounds. But I am definitely proud of what I have been able to accomplish while on Jenny Craig these past 6 months! I really like that Jenny rolls out new foods a few times a year to keep the menu fresh… plus, we all need our pumpkin spice and peppermint fix when it’s that special time of year!
Additional costs include monthly membership fee, cost of food, and cost of shipping if applicable. I'm always looking for inspiration in the world around me and ways to pay it forward to others. Since then, he’s written and edited 6 books on the subject of natural health, diet and fitness. I have kept it off, and am planning to do it again to lose the other 25 pounds my cardiologist told me to dump.
Even changing from an omnivore to vegetarian- and now vegan for the last 15 years- Even after having two children. I never really had much of a weight issue but I am now about 50lbs overweight and I know I need to get my head right.
All of us who are inundated with this kind of story on TV, the internet, etc., tend to be skeptical, as well we should be, especially when it comes to a non-professioinal telling miracle stories of gigantic weight losses.
Knowing this baby would probably be even larger, I decided to go ahead with my second, and last, pregnancy. During this time, he’s constantly been humbled by what experts claim they know and what actually is true. It didn’t matter how healthy I ate, until I changed the way I thought about food and started to follow my passion, I was never able to permanently keep the weight off. Jon referred me to a hypnotherapist in my area (clear across the world from his home in Australia) to work on cellular memory and subconscious programming.
I still continue to do cardio at home on my elliptical or with the kids in the jogging stroller. Also speaking will be Irene Houghton, nurse manager of the heart unit at McLaren Regional Medical Center. This has led him to experiment with many diets and protocols — including vegan, raw food, fasting, medical treatments and more — to find out what is myth and what really works in the real world. Now that I’m doing what I love to do (help people lose weight naturally and without diets!) nourishing my body and keeping the weight off is effortless. Diets and years of talk therapy had no effect on excess weight, but trance work, parts work, and energy clearing have been successful. Clent Manich from southern Oregon also lost about the same amount on green smoothies and his skin is great too. But I jumped right back on the plan and in 10 months I'd lost the weight, 123 pounds of it this time, from 230 pounds to 107. I was obese for the first time in my life and had a very hard time getting around and taking care of my infant daughter. Such as white flour, processed sugar, artificial additives etc… I let go of the idea I had to punish my body with harsh exercise. The weight was a complete personal depressor and confidence killer; I didn't look or feel good. When I load the dishwasher, I do squats every time I put something in, or calf raises as I put the dishes up in cupboards. When I was 5 years old, I weighed 76 pounds and I suffering from a narrowing blood vessel in my heart and had surgery to correct it.
As I started jogging, I went from light pole to light pole, telling myself I could make it. From then on my mother did not want me to be to active she was afraid I would have a heart attack. I began my weight loss journey 2 years ago after receiving a seat belt ticket for not being buckled up. This antisocial behavior was a total personality change from my normal charismatic, social self.

I stepped on the scale and saw 412 pounds and about a week later after changing my eating habits I stepped on the scale once again and saw 408 and have considered that my highest weight, but 412 is where I initially started. I have completely changed my life and I am not on a diet.  This has been a complete lifestyle change for me. Today I eat between 1400-1500 calories a day consisting of lean meats, veggies, and limited daily serving of fruit and nuts.
I now use my journey to motivate and inspire others to take back their health!!”What do I eat?For most of journey my diet consisted of lots of veggies, 2 servings of fruit daily, lean meats like turkey, fish, and chicken. I do not count carbs, but I am mindful of them, especially when I eat them, which is generally before 2 p.m.
The whole time I’ve been watching myself transform little by little.  Recently, I have started doing P90X and I am picking up some muscle tone. I now aim to eat at least 1400-1500 calories a day.My workout routineI previously worked out 5-6 days a week 2-3 hours a day. I usually did a 3-5 mile walk daily, I belonged to a gym and would do zumba classes, weights, strength training, I dance and I would work out on the elliptical. This is coming from someone who initially despised working out, believe me it gets easier as you go, just don’t give up.
My current workouts are generally shorter High Intensity workouts, cardio, and picking up my weights! Be blessed and allow GOD’s Great Grace and Glory, to be your main focus, we can do all things, through Christ, who strengthens us. I always look at where I’m at now and get so discouraged at how much weight I have to lose (a person to be exact. Your story has inspired me and is proof that with GOD, a made up mind and determination that NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE!
I wish you well and am thankful for the motivation to continue my journey of transformation. I too have heart problems and worry about over working myself but this has encouraged me to lose the 190 pounds I want to lose.
However, there is more that needs to be done to help her lose the weight she needs to lose. Let her know your reason for cooking healthy meals is to take care of yourself and your family, and to be healthy.
He had his physical, a few days later his doctor stating that his cholesterol was slightly elevated. He eats the foods I cook despite not liking seafood, but he is starting to understand the reason we eat clean cos I always tell him why we have to eat healthy. KEEP BEING YOUR DAUGHTERS SUPPORT SYSTEM I THINK THAT IS AMAZING WHAT YOUR ARE DOING TO HELP HER. This journey is hard, but seeing your story again reaffirms that if I stay diligent and dedicated I can accomplish my goals. I was never over weight intil I got in my late 20’s due from letting my self go and in bad relationships !
I have just recently started to make a change in my life and I thank you for the courage it takes to share your story and to be an encouragement to me as well as others.
I feel so guilty every time I go out some where and I wanna holla at my sisters but in my experience, more often than not they are very overweight. Please consult your physician or a qualified health professional on any matters regarding your health and well being or on any opinions expressed within this website.
BUT UPON FINDING THIS WEBSITE AND READING YOUR STORY IT HAS GIVEN ME SO MUCH COURAGE AND MOTIVATION TO ACCOMPLISH MY GOAL! I dropped to 333 pounds and now I am fighting to regain my commitment and my determination to become a healthy person. It was a divine appointment for me to read it today because I once again made a vow to God to get back on track. You have motivated me at the right time for I was battling in my mind to choose to eat healthy for lunch or choose something that tastes good and bad for me. I also want to say good luck on your journey to get back on tract also you can find a page I have on FB its called Obesity Kure I post a lot of great tips on their as well. Congratulations on your success!Reply Kaylee says: November 24, 2013 at 12:55 pmI know this blog is not intended for me, but I I found this post last month and it motivated me so much I just had to leave a comment and say THANK YOU!
