Nutrisystem reveals the latest real-life weight loss success story.
Nick Gaudio admits that at 319 pounds and 30 years of age he was not a very happy person. His weight, and the problems both small and large that came with it, was unnecessary baggage for a young man who had big plans for his future.
According to a July 2011 article on Everyday Health, Research has shown that there’s no clear, one-way connection between obesity and depression. Instead, studies have shown that the two tend to feed off each other in a vicious, self-destructive circle.
Certainly thats how it felt for Gaudio, who when flying home from a business trip couldnt buckle his seat belt. Gaudio was dismayed that he had let his eating get this far out of hand. “I’d never really seen myself as that big, messy guy in the corner, but at over 300 lbs., that’s exactly who I was,” says Gaudio.
After the humiliation of not being able to buckle his seat belt, Gaudio vowed to do something about his weight. I had had enough, says Gaudio, I knew I had to do something to make some sort of change.
Gaudio called Nutrisystem in 2009 and got on the program although he admits to not being sure the plan would work for him. As ready as I was to start losing the weight, says Gaudio, I wasn’t so sure Nutrisystem was going to work for me. Boy, was I wrong! I began the diet, and saw my first 20 lbs. melt off with relative ease. Nutrisystem puts it all into place for you by teaching you exactly what and how to eat. I saw the results, and realized that they’d be there as long as I stuck with it.
Gaudios philosophy of sticking to the program mirrors Nutrisystem brand ambassador Terry Bradshaws, who has lost 32 pounds on the program.
Nick did exactly what he needed to for his health exactly when he needed to, says NFL Hall of Famer Bradshaw. It doesnt get easier to lose weight the older you get and you want to be in the game of life and enjoying your 30s, 40s even your 60s! I know I am.
Gaudio liked that he had taken control and was following a plan, I think the best part about Nutrisystem is that they put the map in place for you. Once you get a look at that map, you know the direction to losing weight.
Since beginning the program, Gaudio has lost 80 pounds* and his outlook can be seen in the nearly perpetual grin he wears. “I wouldn’t be here in this great state of mind that I’m in without Nutrisystem,” he says.
Gaudio is proud to report that I still live and eat as I learned on Nutrisystem with proper portion size and healthy eating.
Losing weight on Nutrisystem has made Gaudio, a better person, and probably extended my life as I entered my 30s. It saved me from depression and, best of all, it’s made me the best version of myself that I could beand that means more than anything.
