Nutrisystem Announces Real Life Success Story: For Nick Gaudio Turning 30 Years Old Turns Out To Be Weight Loss Turning Point

gI_77890_NicholasG_after-8823Nutrisystem 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.…

Green Mountain At Fox Run Announces Healthy Weight Loss Blog For Women Who Are Tired Of Dieting

How much should a person weigh to be healthy? Which diet should they follow? Should they diet at all? How long should they exercise? Everybody’s got an opinion, and advice is administered like flu shots in December, but for the most part, it’s not much different from what’s been printed, pitched, televised or sold for the last 40 years. Most women have heard it all before, and it hasn’t made any difference in their ability to achieve their weight loss and fitness goals. Maybe it’s time for a different perspective, a new forum instead of the same old, tired story. Imagine a place where women feel comfortable and safe sharing their ideas, frustration and successes about dieting and weight with other women in search of that one single voice of reason.

After 33 years of offering women an alternative approach to diets (which only make you fat or fatter), Green Mountain is once again breaking new ground by launching “A Weight Lifted,” the Green Mountain at Fox Run Blog. A Weight Lifted (,is specifically designed for women seeking practical insight into their eating and health. It’s a place to find straightforward information and commentary and to get livable, time-tested solutions to help make healthy weights a permanent reality in their lives.

“Every week we hear from women frustrated with hearing the same old advice for managing their weight,” says Marsha Hudnall, MS, RD, program director at Green Mountain. “We want to help women see there’s a different way of approaching the issue, a way that can free them of old attitudes and behaviors that consistently lead to failure. Part of what creates success is encouraging camaraderie with other like-minded women who find themselves in the same boat, and we hope the blog will do that.”

Featuring posts from Hudnall and other visionary alumnae of the Green Mountain program, the blog will address topical issues surrounding weight loss, healthy eating, lifestyle, body image and diabetes. For example, the post ‘Normal Eating vs. ‘Perfect Eating,’’ discusses how women often mistakenly resort to ‘eating perfection’ in their effort to get healthy and lose weight, allowing for little flexibility, which is a must given today’s busy lifestyles. In ‘Out with the Old, In with the New,’ they poke fun at those who criticize the old Food Guide Pyramid as the reason for weight struggles in this country – how could it be the reason when no one ate like it advised in the first place? ‘See Jane Run’ talks about our modern times and a culture that leaves no time for taking care of ourselves, pointing out that the lifestyle, not the person, is at the root of failure. ‘Grilled Vegetables’ provides a wealth of ways to prepare great-tasting vegetables for healthy eating and enjoyment. Delicious, healthy recipes developed by the chefs at Green Mountain at Fox Run are promised each week.

Any and all women who are tired of struggling with their weight and being let down by the latest diet or healthy lifestyle propaganda are welcome. You can visit A Weight Lifted, at
