"The Inherent Health Weight Management program has given me a
path to sustained health, where I'm getting good nutrition,
increased energy and gaining muscle tone while I lose the weight,"
says Ed, who has lost 119 lbs. and is continuing his weight loss
journey to lose another 98 lbs. to reach a goal weight of 175
In September 2011, at a starting weight of 392 lbs., Ed
contemplated how he could lose weight and keep it off without
starting "another diet" that promised fast and lasting results. He
had tried many of the popular weight loss programs; he drank the
powdered shakes, sipped bowls of cabbage soup, reduced fat, cut
carbs among other programs. While Ed had succeeded at losing some
weight, he always gained the weight back plus much more.
With his body sore, bloated and tired Ed was angry at himself
for allowing the vicious cycle of bad eating habits and a sedentary
lifestyle to continue so long that his health was in real jeopardy.
He had developed loud snoring with early stages of sleep apnea,
high blood pressure, fluid retention in his legs, and he was unable
to comfortably stand without joint pain or walk without becoming
Determined to be successful in reaching his weight loss goal of
175 lbs (which meant losing a total of 217 lbs.), Ed researched his
weight loss options. While he dreamed of a magic pill or operation
that would solve his weight problems forever, he knew that it was
his own self-destructive behaviors that needed to change. From his
experience and long history with diets, Ed had learned that one
diet doesn't work for every person and he didn't want to fall into
the same rut of feeling hungry, deprived and then overeating.
The Inherent Health Weight Management test made a lot of sense
to Ed because it tailored a nutrition and exercise program that
matched a person's own genetic profile. The test results showed he
was a Carb Reducer with a High Met exercise profile. Seeing
immediate weight loss results when he started only casually
following the Weight Management nutrition program recommended for
him, Ed's confidence increased. He finally felt assured that he was
on the right track to lose the weight and reach his health
Two months later, Ed was surprised he had lost 27 lbs. He also
noticed a significant increase in his energy level. Wanting to
continue his progress and follow the program more closely, Ed began
to incorporate High Met exercise by joining a gym and working out
on the elliptical and stair machine. For the first time, he was
able to maintain muscle tone while losing weight. Ed took up kick
boxing and other activities he enjoyed. Eight months into the
Weight Management program, Ed signed up and took part in a 5K
charity walk/run event and ran the entire last kilometer. A few
months prior, running would have been impossible for Ed as he would
be out of breath just walking up a flight of stairs.
After consistently losing weight without feeling hungry for over
several months, Ed feels much healthier and is enjoying increased
energy. He sleeps much better, his snoring and sleep apnea has
nearly disappeared and his knees and ankles don't hurt as much. The
water retention in his legs is also improved.
