It has been an amazing journey and I feel 100% better than I have in a long time. Since I have started going to Dr. Liu, I have inspired 2 family members and 2 co-workers to also join the program and they are doing amazing! Thank you Dr. Liu & staff for helping me get my life back on track!
Over the past 3 years, I started to gradually put on weight. I have always had to watch what I ate, but my weight had never gotten as out of control as it had over the past few years. I was so embarrassed when I went to the doctor for a physical and was told that I had put on 40lbs! After that visit, I tried several diets and started walking a lot, but would get discouraged when I would only lose 2 or 3 lbs.
Physically, I was not feeling well. The extra weight made me tired and I did not have a lot of energy. I went back to the doctor and after having some tests done, not only was my cholesterol and blood pressure high, but the real serious concern was my parathyroid. I was really scared and that is when I decided to do something about it.
My doctor recommended Dr. Liu, so I called her office to make an appointment and explained about my parathyroid condition. They told me to come in and the doctor would work with me. That was the best phone call I ever made. The first day I came to Dr. Liu’s office, I knew that she would be able to help me. Her staff made me feel very comfortable and it was the first time I was not embarrassed about my weight.
After the diet was explained and Dr. Liu ran some medical tests on me, I couldn’t wait to get started. It was the first time, in a long time that I felt hopeful that I could lose the weight. Dr. Liu explained to me that I also needed to lose fat and gain muscle, so I was starting to understand a lot more of what I needed to do to lose the weight. The shakes, protein bars and dinner meals were delicious and very filling. I found it very easy to stick to this diet.
As of today, I have lost 48lbs. and feel great! My parathyroid, cholesterol and blood pressure are under control! I joined a gym and now go at least 3-4 times a week. My friends and family have been amazed at the change in me. I love buying all new clothes! I owe Dr. Liu and her staff so much for all their help and encouragement as I went through this program. They really helped me stay focused and made me feel really good every time I went for my visit and they would see that I lost weight. Words can’t describe how much happier I am now! Thank you Dr. Liu & staff!
