And because everyone loves a good success story, let’s meet Bill.


In 2012, Bill found himself at his heaviest weight of 250 pounds. He knew something needed to change. So he joined a gym but didn’t see much change until a year later when he found out he was diabetic. This was when he knew something big had to change. So he continued to exercise and changed his eating habits. This led him right to our front door, where we welcomed him with open arms. Bill was able to make small changes and see a big difference. Today, Bill maintains a healthy weight and is known as “chicken taco guy” to the staff at his local Qdoba.

Woohoo! You look great, Bill!

Happy healthy [and delicious] eating!
