"We felt so confident on our wedding day."


We wanted to feel the best on our wedding day, so to us that meant loosing a few pounds. It was important for us to do this in a healthy way and also to have guidance. That's where Melita with Best Weight On You came in. Melita met with us on a weekly basis to keep us on track, measure our weight loss and even provided recipes. Together we lost a total of 55 lbs and felt so confident on our wedding day! Thanks Melita for helping us feel good on such an important day as well as teach us healthy eating habits for our future.

"Within a year I lost 140 pounds and came off 8 medications."

after photoFirst let me say how thankful I am to God for sending my mother-in-law and Lori Hudson to intervene and help me get my life back. I was literally sitting on my couch dying and taking a large bag of medication just to exist. I was introduced to ITG diet plan that has given me my life back. Within a year I lost 140 pounds and came off about 8 medications. I highly recommend this to anyone needing to lose weight, feel better, get off medications and start to enjoy life again.

"I have continued to lose weight and every day I am thankful to have found ITG."

Last spring found me frustrated with my inability to lose weight despite my active lifestyle (I teach Zumba, run, and do aerobic kick boxing) and eating a relatively healthy diet but love chocolate, cheese, and wine (who doesn’t?). A friend of mine told me that her daughter had lost 40 pounds with ITG but I was reluctant to start a diet program. I was very frustrated because my weight kept going up despite my exercising. My level of frustration reached an all-high level when after three months of running I had gained 5 pounds. I was at my heaviest adult goal. Even heavier than when I was pregnant! I had a hysterectomy in 2010 due to a hormonal unbalance and I was at my wits end.

I did not want any pictures of myself even on vacation since I did not recognize my face or my body. My clothes did not fit and I was starting to feel self-conscious teaching Zumba because I did not feel great about myself. After thinking about it for a little while I tried to contact ITG but I got linked to a different website and got very bad service, no answers, or help of any kind. They charged me $300 and shipping and sent me a bunch of samples of foods (9 days of various foods), but did not give me any advice. I was very upset with them and contacted ITG. That is how I met one of the most supportive, wonderful, and intelligent people I know: Julie, my ITG coach!

From day one, Julie has been encouraging, patient, and supportive. I started training for a half marathon and could not stop either training for it or teaching Zumba despite the warnings for ITG regarding exercise. Julie was able to help me regulate my food intake to guarantee that my body would not go into starvation mode. My starting weight in June was 181.5 and by the time the half marathon rolled around, I was at 143.5! I improved my running time from 13+ minute miles to 11. I completed the mini marathon in 2 hours and 28 minutes! Did I mention I am 41 years old?

My favorite things about ITG are having access to ITG coaches, the ease of the meals, and the clear instructions on how to follow the program. It just takes commitment and a willingness to try it. I specially love the ready-made shakes and the bars. I have continued to lose weight and every day I am thankful to have found ITG. I strongly recommend the ITG program to anyone!

"I recommend the ITG program and coaches to anyone!!"

after photoHi, I am Marilyn. I am seventy years old and I lost 21 lbs. on the ITG weight loss diet. My average was 2 lbs. per week and it took me 10 weeks to drop the weight. Along the way I had help from the wonderful coaches at ITG. I feel amazing I have been more social and active these days like I have more pep in my step. All my friends and family are going crazy about how much slimmer I look and I had to buy a new wardrobe! I recommend the ITG program and coaches to anyone!!

"ITG has been such a great surprise; the food is great, the program educational and the coaching is always available."

after photoWe were determined to finally get our weight off after maybe 20 years of just being fat. Dieting was always too hard and never worked for long. I am 60+ years old stand 4ft 7in. tall and had gotten to 188 lbs. Joel was 259 lbs at about 5ft 11in. We were happy but not comfortable in our skin any more, pictures proved it. My knee replacement doctor was not happy, nor was I; knees hurt, hips hurt, walking hurt. Sometimes when I went upstairs at night to change clothes I just wouldn't come down.

Not only did we 'feel' terrible but our blood work also reflected our situation; both us had high cholesterol and high blood pressure. We both had terrible acid reflux which kept us each up at night. I am thrilled to say the reflux was gone within the first month on the program. Our cholesterol and blood pressure numbers continued to fall. Best of all neither of us snore at all anymore!!!!

Neither of us had any stamina to speak of and we had reached that point of knowing that our weight would be the reason we left our girls prematurely. We are blessed with two daughters who work in the health & wellness industry and one with ITG. We were the first ones she thought of helping. We started the ITG program the end of January 2011. Deciding to start a program has been the hardest and easiest decision we have made in a long time.

ITG has been such a great surprise; the food is great, the program educational and the coaching is always available. The program teaches you how to lose and then to maintain your loss in such ways that you don't feel that you have to deny yourself your favorite foods. Today I weigh 116 lbs and my husband is at 190, it's all about making better choices, and we choose to be healthier from now on!! This is truly our last diet!

"I would recommend ITG to anyone, especially someone trying to overcome diabetes!"

I was determined to make it through the 2010 holidays without gaining anymore than just time with my family and maybe a few presents. I got the best gift of all when my mom and family offered to pay for me to start ITG, a program that one of her friends was doing and had been very successful at. So the week before Thanksgiving I started the ITG program and during the week of Thanksgiving I actually lost 8 lbs. Currently, I have successfully stayed off Metformin for my diabetes, I have had normal blood sugars since starting the program and can’t wait for my check up in April with my endocrinologist. I can’t wait to see how my A1C has come down as my weight continues to come down!!! I have gone from a size 22 to a size 10 and still have some pounds to go!!! I am totally thrilled with my success so far and really look forward to hitting my goal. I would recommend ITG to anyone, especially someone trying to overcome diabetes!!!

"I have not felt this good in more years than I want to remember."

after photo40 lbs. lighter and feel great!!

I started the program in July 2012 with the goal of losing 30 lbs. Not only did I reach my goal in roughly 3 months, I lost 40 lbs.! I dropped from waist size 38 to 36. Prior to starting the plan I could not walk up a flight of stairs without getting winded. Now I run up the stairs! I have not felt this good in more years than I want to remember. Yes, I did try losing weight twice by doing less than 2000 calories a day. The first time I lost 10 lbs. in 6 months and quickly put the weight back on. The second time I lost 5 lbs. in 3 months and gave up. Since I entered Step 3 of the Slim Down St Pete / ITG program I have maintained my weight at around 204 lbs. I have simply followed their recommendations listed in the plan to help maintain my weight at my desired level. I would highly recommend this program to anyone. All you have to lose is some weight!
