A medical HCG DIet Success Story Portland, Oregon
|October 1, 2013|
My name is Jason McMayden and I can honestly say that the HCG Diet truly changed my life. My journey with the HCG Diet began in February of 2010. I had eaten a huge dinner of pizza and bread one evening and went to bed feeling really disgusted with myself. In the morning, I woke up and saw myself in the mirror. I looked straight into my own eyes and said to myself, "this has got to STOP! I am ready for a transformation."
Of course, my wife had expressed concern about my weight over the past few months as it had easily increased about 20 lbs. beyond the extra 7 lbs. I had put on per year for the past 7 years. She was also concerned about my cholesterol being 399 and my blood pressure being 150/94. Her nagging just drove me crazy altough I knew she was right.
The Journey to and through HCG Diet
My first thought was to add exercise into my life. I drove to the closest 24 hour fitness and got a membership. My membership came with 3 free perosnal training sessions that I was so happy to use as I needed to have somedirection. I began working out 3 days per week and after a month, I took it up to four. I would sweat with each workout and after a few weeks it became easier and a total routine. The weight was really slow to come off. I was losing about 1 lb. per week.
I had coffee with a friend one morning who had lost 60 lbs. I was amazed when I saw him as it had been a few months. I was curious as to what he had done to take the weight off. He told me of these doctors in NW Portland that lead a really incredible weight loss program called the HCG Diet. The diet sounded strange to me but he talked so highly of this place, these doctors and their program I had to find out more.
After, investigating the Natural Path online as well as the HCG Diet became quite intrigued. The next day, I called and spoke with Dr. Madda and he told me all about the HCG Diet, his HCG Diet philosophy and how the HCG Diet program worked. I decided to take a week to think about it and really do a few days of cleansing as Dr. Madda had recommended. The week of cleansing was tough as I had not had the best diet over the past few years. I was sluggish for 3 days and then a I began to feel better than ever with more energy and motivation to lose this weight and get my health back.
Two weeks later, I began the HCG Diet at the Natural Path with the guidance of Dr. Robert Madda and Dr. Cara Phillipo. I needed to lose 90 lbs. and they really guided me to that goal in such a professional, supportive and caring way. It took 2 rounds of the HCG Diet to get where I am today. I waited 2 months in between to be sure that I could maintain my new weight and during that time I lost an additional 8 lbs.
It has been a year and 8 months post HCG Diet and I would say I am a radically different (and skinnier) person. Honestly, I never thought I would ever know the ME I am today.
My Final HCG Diet wordsI can truly say that this HCG Diet turned my life around! My cholesterol is now 207, my blood pressure is now 125/82 and I am off of all prescription medications. I eat well, I eat organic food and shop as locally as I can. I take time to cook. I take time to eat my meals sitting down. I take time to keep health as a primary part of my life!
