The selection of ITG foods made it easy to try new items

I believe everyone who wants to lose weight has to have or find that one trigger or life-changing event to get started on a healthy path to lose those extra pounds that found their way onto our bodies. My trigger was when I needed to reduce my pain and have hip replacement surgery. The insurance company didn’t want to pay for my surgery because my BMI was 52! My orthopedic doctor suggested I check into a weight loss program that they sponsor called ITG Diet. I proceeded to sign up and with the help of Jennifer and Leslie (my ITG coaches), I took my first step toward a healthier life. Using the guidelines given by ITG and by logging everything that went into my body, I reached a state of ketosis, and that’s when the pounds started to come off.

With the ITG products and nutritional supplements, I started to feel better and lost enough weight to have my surgery. With a new hip, my mobility and ability to exercise helped a great deal to shed the pounds. The ITG program kept me grounded and having weekly accountability kept me motivated to lose more weight. It was a slow process, but after 1 year, I have lost 100 pounds! My BMI is 35.6, and so I still have a way to go to get to my goal weight. I have every confidence that with Jennifer and Leslie’s encouragement, I will reach my goal in the not-too-distant future.

As with any supplement-based weight loss program, you find the foods you like the most that work for you. The selection of ITG foods made it easy to try new items and keep eating my favorite protein bars and snacks. I highly recommend to anyone that is looking for a safe way to lose weight and feel better physically and mentally to sign up and join the rest of us in the ITG family. The three-step program is what really solidified my joining since you not only lose weight, but they teach you how to transition back into eating regular foods and how to keep the pounds off.

Thank you very much, ITG (It’s The Greatest) Diet!
