size-two

Not only was it very easy to follow, but also the food was delicious and satisfying!

My story is not much different from many others.  I am 46 years old, a wife and mother of two wonderful kids. Like many others, I got married, I was focusing on our marriage and building our life together. Before I knew it, the weight gain was happening. I gained even more weight after my first child was born, and never lost it.

I was grateful to be a stay-at-home mom to focus on my family and raising my children, but I began to realize I lost myself and it physically showed. In 2007 I decided to reel myself back in and focus on losing weight and getting in shape. I joined a fad diet program and lost 80 pounds pretty quickly. After a few months I began to gain the weight back. No diet programs seemed to be working for me.

In February of 2016 I felt out of control. My weight had increased to 201.5 pounds and I was wearing a size 18/20. I wasn’t getting any younger, I felt terrible, my body ached, my back hurt… and that was my turning point! I felt like I was missing out on so much and there were so many things I wanted to do. It’s not about how a person looks on the outside, but how they feel on the inside.

That same month I began my journey with MD Complete Fitness, an ITG Clinic to lose weight and live healthier. In my first visit with my amazing coach Kelly, she asked to take a “before” picture of me. I was stubborn and said “no way!” I was afraid of failing like I did on other weight loss programs. I soon learned that ITG was different in a positive way. Not only was it very easy to follow, but also the food was delicious and satisfying! Plus, having a personal coach to guide and encourage me was reassuring and helped me be successful in reaching my weight loss goal!

“Before” Weight – February 2016: 201.5 lbs. size 18/20
“After” Weight – February 2017: 121 lbs. size 2 – my success continues!

I haven't felt this good about myself in a long time!

easy to follow dietAll of my life I have I have been self-conscious of my weight. I have been on many diets... I have even worked for a weight loss company. I lost weight on those programs but I was miserable doing it. After the birth of my second daughter I was so unhappy with the way I looked. So much so that I didn't like to go out anywhere. I was invited to a lunch date with some old friends and their children and we took a group picture. Later that evening, the picture was posted on Facebook... I was mortified! I couldn't believe that was me standing in that picture! That was the turning point for me. I had to make a change; I was ready to get healthy and I wasn't looking back. I turned that picture into my motivation. The program was easy to follow and the weekly check-ins with my coach kept me motivated! I have never in my life lost this much weight on any diet. I couldn't be prouder to say that in 7 months I lost 48 pounds! I haven't felt this good about myself in a long time!

I still can’t tell you my absolute favorite ITG food product because they are all just so delicious!

My weight-loss journey began during summer of 2015. I was extremely busy helping my mom take care of my father who was in and out of the hospital and I just couldn’t find the motivation or time to help myself get healthy because I had let myself get so big without even realizing it. My father was very worried about my health and wanted me to do something so that I could get healthier and feel good about myself. When I found out about ITG at M.D. Complete Fitness my father financially helped me so that I could make the change and live a healthy lifestyle. The program was great! It was laid out for me so that I didn’t have to count calories or enter them into an app. The food was even better; it always kept me full. Till this day, I still can’t tell you my absolute favorite ITG food product because they are all just so delicious! With just 3 easy steps I have reached my goal of losing a total of 47 pounds! I feel better than ever and have improved my 5K & 10K running times. I have so much more energy, motivation, and discipline. I eat to live, instead of living to eat. I continue to weigh in here and there and purchase my delicious ITG snacks and vitamins on the regular. All of this would not be possible without the help and guidance that I received from my excellent coach, Alissa! Thank you ITG for helping me change my life for the better!

I would plateau on other diets and then usually quit. With ITG, that didn’t happen!

reduce dress sizesAt the age of 61 my goal was to be a healthy weight so I could be active and not rely on medications. Before ITG I couldn’t even get up if I was on the floor without help. Everything was difficult, whether it was tying my shoes, bending over, or dancing; I was always out of breath. I am now able to be more active. I can go for a walk or go roller-skating and I feel good about the way I look in clothes. For the first time in a very long time I enjoy shopping for clothes where before I would just pick up something and go home hoping it would fit.

I needed to lose weight to help with my blood pressure and cholesterol. My mother is diabetic and needs insulin shots. Without this diet and being a healthier me, I am not sure I would be able to deal with the needles and shots that come with the struggles of diabetes. I will also need knee surgery and weight loss will help with my recovery time.

I love the ITG Foods! This is one of the easiest plans to follow. Lots of water and vegetables helped me get through the first couple weeks, and then it was just a matter of continuing to eat the right foods to lose the weight. I followed everything my coach told me and every week I lost weight. This was amazing to me since I would plateau on other diets and get frustrated, and then usually quit. With ITG, that didn’t happen and the support of the coaches and my family was amazing!

The people at ITG are awesome, helpful, and always there to answer questions. Their advice and encouragement and the way they treat everyone like family makes the dieting process so much better. Every week I’ve been there I have had a positive attitude because I knew that, if anything, when I left the clinic I would have more knowledge to reach a healthy goal. Whether I was traveling or busy with family visits, they always assisted me with ideas and suggestions to make it through. The food kept me on track and the recipes are excellent!

Because of ITG, I no longer need my cholesterol medication and my blood pressure meds have been cut in half. My doctor was amazed at my dedication and hopes that next time I visit my blood pressure meds can go away completely. I just need to maintain and stay healthy. ITG makes that possible for me! Thank you!

I haven’t felt this alive for some 20 years!

Some 8 months back, I saw my doctor for my regular 6-month exam. He expressed his concern over my weight gain and highly recommended that I lose some weight since at 5' 11”, 71 years old, and 256 pounds, I could quickly be assessed in that terrible “obese” category. The doctor was also concerned with my heart health, since I had rising blood pressure, and finally atrial fibrillation that showed up irregularly with arrhythmic heartbeat. He plainly advised me that the very best thing I could do for myself was to shed a lot of weight and unload some of the weight associated strain on my circulatory system.

Up until my hip replacement in 2010 and knee replacement in 2014, my weight had been slowly climbing from a middle age average of about 190 pounds up to 206 pounds when I had my knee replacement surgery. Since the knee replacement surgery and the slow recovery from that, I had become quite unmotivated toward physical activity and quite uncontrolled in my impulse-dominated eating habits. My weight gradually climbed almost unnoticed from that 206 pounds, to 225, then, 240, and finally 256 pounds.

I took a good long look at myself one night after I stepped out of the shower and said to myself “That is just not me! I have to do something about this. I look terrible, I have no energy, I have almost no clothes in my closet that I can wear, and no longer feel any desire to go out and socialize, even with friends.”

So, I called around, and discovered that there was an ITG Clinic nearby. I started the program in late May of 2016.

By December 2016 I transitioned off the diet plan, having lost almost 80 pounds! I am now at my goal of 176 pounds. I just couldn’t believe that I lost that weight so quickly. I saw my ITG Coach weekly, and I could not have made it on my own without his help.

So now I can stand in front of my closet and again say “I have no clothes to wear” but this time for a different reason...they are practically all too big for me! I am enjoying shopping now for clothes that fit my 80 pound lighter frame, I have enacted my silver sneaker management from my health insurance company, and joined a gym and have gotten back into exercising 3 times a week. I regularly ride my new bike, really enjoy the outdoors, and have met several neighbors that I have been passing by for some 6 years.

I haven’t felt this alive for some 20 years! Now, with my weight under control, an enhanced self-image, some very strong motivation for keeping the weight off, a renewed enjoyment of meeting and interacting with new acquaintances, loads of energy to finally work on that long list of things-to-do-after-retirement, and most important, knowing that I am treating my heart and health with new care and respect.

Life is good! And primarily thanks to how well the ITG Diet Plan has worked for me.

I not only look better, but I feel better!

jeans-fitThe ITG diet has taught me a system of eating that optimizes weight loss and balanced nutrition. For years I didn’t understand the relationship between eating enough protein at regular intervals for maximizing fat burning. I not only look better, but I feel better. There is less inflammation in my joints and less fat to carry around, which means less toxins and less pressure on my joints. I fit in my jeans from 15 years ago with room to spare. I am 23 pounds lighter!

Thanks to God, my wife and my awesome coach, Joe, I have changed my life!

I was in a rut with my overall weight, and on two blood pressure medications. I was introduced to ITG by a friend and was very skeptical. I read the literature on the website and decided to give it a try. To my amazement, the foods were delicious and the plan was very easy to follow. My coach, Joe, is very knowledgeable and easy to communicate with. I consider Joe a friend, not just a coach. He has been with me from the start on this journey. My wife, Michele, has also been very supportive and has provided constant encouragement along the way. To date, I have lost 63.6 pounds, 36 inches and stopped taking both of my blood pressure medications! I also suffered from sleep apnea, but have now been cured. I have not felt this good in over a decade! I have also had the privilege of purchasing a new wardrobe. I could not be happier and excited with my life change!

It is that good!

after photoI have heard people say “I never felt so good,” “it changed my life,” “I have more energy now than I have in years,” but I never really believed them. But it is true, the ITG Diet Plan actually does work. It worked for me, and YES it can work for you!

I am 77 years old and had just about given up on ever feeling good about myself. I never really wanted to get dressed up any more, nothing fit right and I was not happy about how I looked. I know the older you get the harder it is to lose weight, but it can be done and I did it. It all started when I attended an informative meeting about ITG, listened to others tell their story and tasted some food samples. It was now or never, I decided. I made an appointment and got my Starter Kit. The food was tasty and I really stuck with it! I was never hungry and I think it was partly because of all the water I was drinking. I seldom drank water before going on this plan… maybe a glass every couple of days, so this was a real transition for me. The weight started to come off and every week I lost those pounds. Joe, my coach, was absolutely great and encouraged me all the way. I lost 25 pounds and 20 inches, brought my cholesterol down from 211 to 116, in four months. People have asked me what I have done to lose weight and comment that no matter what they did they could not look as good as me. Others have said “It isn’t right, you are looking younger and we are looking older!” Comments like this and encouragement from my family and friends kept me on track. I set my goal weight and even gave myself a schedule as to when I needed to meet those goals along the way, and it worked! Who can say it’s hard to be on a plan that lets you have a chocolate shake every morning and a candy bar every night? ITG is a great plan and easy to follow.

Thanks to ITG I have been able to get my life back!

These pictures were taken less than one year apart from when I embarked on my ITG journey at the end of 2016. After a broken foot, going through menopause, and the stresses of life, I did not like the woman I saw when I looked in the mirror. Coach Christy at Stern Cardiovascular’s Wellness Center gave great coaching advice throughout the process. Thanks to ITG I have been able to get my life back! Starting the ITG Diet Plan has been the best decision I have ever made. No more cholesterol medication, and I can run circles on the tennis court!

The ITG Diet Plan is not just a diet, but a way of life for us - it has been life changing!

After yo-yo dieting all my life, I finally found the program that works for me! I watched a co-worker and her husband successfully losing weight, but what impressed me more than the weight loss was that they looked healthy. That was the deciding factor for me, as I was so tired of being tired and feeling miserable. My husband and I met with our coach, Michelle, and started our journey together. The program is easy, the food is good - my favorite is the Marshmallow Hot Chocolate! I feel great, but most importantly, my health has improved tremendously. Having recently gone through chemotherapy and radiation, my body was a mess! I’m type 2 diabetic, and my A1C levels dropped drastically, 7.2 to 5.4 in 3 months, my cholesterol is down from 280 to 185. My liver functions had been extremely high for about 18 months following chemo; my doctor tried everything to get it down, and now my numbers are all normal. My doctors have been amazed at the results. I have lost about 45 pounds, 5 dress sizes, and lots of inches. I even got rid of my “fat” clothes, so I wouldn’t have any reason to gain the weight back! I had kept them in the past “just in case” and “just in case” always managed to come back. The ITG Diet Plan is not just a diet, but a way of life for us - it has been life changing!

About 10 years ago, my wife was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. So that our lives would be easier, I followed the diet plan she was on and lost 30 pounds. Unfortunately, I gained it all back… plus some! The ITG Diet Plan was much simpler, and the food was outstanding. I started at 210 pounds, and lost 2-3 pounds consistently each week. I initially set my goal weight at 185 pounds, but reached it and kept losing more! I amazed myself by the success I was having and stuck with ITG until I reached 173 pounds. People kept telling me I was getting skinny! My success came from finding ITG foods that I liked and stuck with them, which made the whole process very easy. I continue to monitor my daily water intake and am now better at drinking enough, since in the past I would drink very little. My coach, Michelle, always had positive things to say to keep me on track each week. My doctors are extremely pleased with my bloodwork results. Cholesterol, down; blood pressure, down; liver enzymes, normal. Overall, I feel so much better and life is good, once again! My wife and I began this weight loss journey together and with the two of us working toward being healthy, we made sure not to let each other down!

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!!!

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!

We never had any bad effects from the diet and rarely were we hungry.

We first heard about the ITG / ITG Diet from our son and daughter-in-law, probably sometime in December or early January of 2012. They had started it sometime before then, had gotten off and then re-started. They had both lost some pounds and inches and told us how much better they felt. As our clothes were getting to the point that they would hardly fasten, both Joan (Mary) and I decided we had to do something, so we contacted Julie Ray of ITG Diet.  Julie did her intro part and then we had the interview for the start of the diet. We had decided that if we were going to “do” this thing, we were going to stick to it as religiously as possible and so in February of 2012, we placed our first order for ITG materials.

We’ve pretty much kept to the letter of the rules, finding out that 2 cups of veggies at two meals per day became a challenge! Over the next 6 months [2-15 > 8-10] Joan (Mary) lost 36 lbs., and Bob lost 61 lbs. We are now on a maintenance regimen and so far, so good. Bob has lost 5-6 inches in waistline and his knees are certainly in much better shape than they were. Also going up stairs is so much easier not having those 12 five pound bags of sugar on his shoulders. Another plus is that we both have had to acquire new wardrobes. It was encouraging to have access to Julie, our ITG coach when we had questions and she also provided encouragement when we had those weeks where we didn’t lose as much as we thought we should have.

We never had any bad effects from the diet and rarely were we hungry.  It works (and in a timely manner) and so far, for us, not like some other diets we’ve been on before, we are in the “groove’ of what we should and shouldn’t eat and hopefully we’ll stay there.

ITG made it easy for me to lose weight.

easy weight loss

I had lost hope and had given up on losing weight. I was introduced to the ITG Diet Plan and began my weight loss journey in May of 2014. This introduction changed my life! I My husband, Dr. Chuck, is a chiropractor and we had been busy growing the chiropractic office for several years as well as raising three children together. As far as my health was concerned, I gained weight, had lost hope and was about to give up. I knew I needed a change of lifestyle that I could live with forever. ITG made it easy for me to lose weight, and in 6 months I lost over 85 pounds!

My husband and I were already doing wonderful things at the office and I decided I wanted to help others lose the weight they so desperately were trying to lose on their own. I became an official ITG Coach at our clinic and I can’t imagine doing anything else! I love that I continue to see life changes in others every day, and I love seeing the confidence of my dieters grow as they get healthier and see their own successes. Being a product of change myself, I know that losing the weight taught me many things, including how to manage it for life, and I work every day to pass that on to others. I look forward to meeting more wonderful people and being a part of their healthy lifestyle change too, and maintaining my healthier new me!

This is a life changing program.

First, let me start off by saying that Melita is the absolute best! She is such an encourager and is always there when you need someone to talk to – especially, if you want that piece of cake!. I was with her with another with another diet plan and when her clinic changed over I followed. There is something for everyone and in my quest to lose weight for myself and my wedding, I lost a total of 31 pounds and 25 ½ inches eating the products from the line that I enjoyed.

This is a life changing program - once you are in the maintenance and start incorporating more foods into your diet, you still have to be conscious and realize that you can't have a cheeseburger morning, noon, and night and still keep the weight off. I'm not going to say that it was always easy every day of the week, but I wanted it bad enough to where not continuing the diet would leave me very dissatisfied.

I feel like a 10 year old again with all kinds of energy.

diet-changeIt is a great honor for me to provide this testimonial to the people and organization that helped me in literally changing my life, the ITG diet team. My coaches Joe and Tina are amazing, supportive and caring people who make time in their busy day to talk with you, provide encouragement, advice, support, and assist in any way possible to help you along your journey. With the ITG diet and all the support, I managed to lose 52 pounds, equating to a summary of 35 inches lost, all in a matter of 5 months!

As I look back at my journey to the weight loss, let me start at the beginning. It was May 26, 2015. I just got back from my yearly physical at the doctor’s office. The news I got was less than stellar. My weight at that moment was 205 pounds, and at my heaviest since January, which was 211 pounds. Well, I was told not only was I obese, but I had hypertension and my blood sugar was abnormally high, classifying as pre diabetes. My blood pressure was 144 over 96, and this was resting. The discussion was medication alternatives, scripts and dosages. I asked the doctor that if I lost some weight, would this help, and forego the medications. He agreed, giving me 30 days, and wanted to see progress, or we start medication. I resorted to the only successful diet plan I was familiar with, and that was the ITG diet.

I made the call to ITG, and placed my first order. June 2, 2015 marks Day 1 of my new diet. I prepared for this moment as instructed, giving up coffee and hydrating much more than I was used to. I set a goal of wanting to get to a weight of 170, which meant losing 35 pounds. I knew it was going to be a process, and had to follow the plan exactly as designed. I had 2 salads a day, lots of vegetables, and ITG products, which were very tasty. I was actually eating MORE than I was used to, and drinking lots more water than I was used to, but I had faith in the process, and trusted that it would take some time. After a week, not resorting to my old ways of binge eating bad food, I knew I was going to make it.

On June 25th, I returned to the doctor weighing 189, shedding 16 pounds since day 1. The doctor was impressed, like the progress, and gave me another 30 days to try getting lighter. The follow up that day showed a reduction in blood pressure and blood sugar. I was already feeling better, but knew I had a lot of work ahead. I started to enjoy cooking more, using the recipes that are on the ITG website. Joe and Tina talked to me every week, cheering me on all the way. I felt more determined than ever that I was going to reach my goal soon.

It was July 23rd, day 51 of my weight loss journey. I returned to the doctor again, only this time, I weighed 178 pounds, 27 pounds lighter than the first visit. We did the blood work, resulting in an A1C count of 5.7, and blood pressure reading 120 over 80. I did it! I got my numbers down, and without medication! This was an emotional moment for me and my family. The doctor was blown away and kept asking me how I did this, and kept telling him it was following the ITG diet, and doing it exactly the way it is spelled out. The doctor wanted to monitor my situation more, and wanted a 60 day follow up to make sure the numbers hold steady and I don’t have a setback. I was fine with this, and kept following my plan. During this time, I stared down many of things, such as ice cream, pizza, and food that I would have binged on. I was on a mission, and owed it to myself to see it through and not give in, or give up.

September 22 rolled around and went into the doctor’s office weighing 160 pounds, 45 pounds lighter than day 1. My blood pressure was 117 over 68, and did a glucose check, coming up 94. The doctor was stunned, not expecting that I would make such progress in short time. He said no patient of his ever lost weight like this, and still wanted to know if I was doing anything besides the ITG diet. I mentioned prayer, believing in myself, trusting the process, and knowing that anything was possible. Actually, my progress is about average for the results you can expect from the ITG diet. My weekly check ins with Joe and Tina proved invaluable during this time. My body was starting to change, losing inches and almost becoming unrecognizable. By this time, I was on Step 2 of the ITG plan. I also was more physically active, feeling more energy, feeling lighter.

It was November 2, 2015, 5 months after starting the ITG diet, and on that day I weighed 153 pounds. I haven’t weighed this much in 20 years. My waist line dropped from a 38 to a 34. I felt better than ever. I felt like a 10 year old again with all kinds of energy. Feeling younger, looking better, feeling better, I have been doing different activities I gave up on many years ago. What amazed me was, when riding my bike, I started riding faster, harder, and liking it. I wanted to push my new body to see where it was, and made me reflect back on my college days, when I was last able to do what I did, and with such ease. In that moment, I realized not only did I exceed my original goal, but I have my life back in a very big way, and now the sky is the limit. Seize the day, seize the night, seize the moment. Anything is possible, even losing weight and making life choices that will better your life. Thank you once again to Joe, Tina, and ITG who helped me along the way, and celebrate your awesomeness!!

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 have never felt so confident in my life!

after weight lossMy weight had finally reached its highest, 154 pounds, and my self-esteem was at its lowest. I was so unhappy with what I saw in the mirror. I was done feeling that way about myself so I was ready for a change. That’s when I began my weight loss journey on the ITG Diet at Slim Down St Pete. At first I was skeptical that I would be successful on this diet since nothing had worked for me in the past. I sure was wrong! The food was satisfying, the cravings were gone, the diet was easy to follow and the coaches were always available for support. I lost 33 pounds and went down 4 dress sizes! I no longer needed to hide behind baggy clothes and jackets. I don’t hold my purse in front of my stomach anymore. I walk with my shoulders back and head held high. I have never felt so confident in my life!

inches lost on diet

I'm feeling better inside and out! This has been an excellent diet for me!

I am a 63 year old, RN, working 36 hours a week in the hospital, 12 hour shifts.

I've always had issues with my weight. Been over weight most of my life, lost a few pounds and gained again. Felt as long as they made scrubs to fit me, it was alright.

I love to travel and one of my biggest fears was not being able to fit into the airplane seat, the seatbelt being too small and having to ask for the extension. was so uncomfortable, spilling over the armrests, wedged in and that little tray would not lay flat because my belly was in the way.

I saw the ITG diet sign in my doctor’s office and wondered if it was something for me? I was back to buying plus size clothes and sad.

That's when I met lTG diet coach Jo-ann. She is more than a diet coach, she's been there, so supportive, great tips, encouraging and I feel so much more in control of my life! She is accessible, and makes it easy to order the meals via email for the week.

I have never tried a diet like ITG, one with packaged meals. But I am motivated. I like most of the meals, love that I can eat meat, salads, their snacks, chips, most vegetables and eat them at work and lose weight.

I'm feeling better inside and out. I am going on a big vacation, bike and barge through Holland for 2 weeks. I'm feeling fit, not afraid of that airplane seat, better portion control, making better choices and enjoying the clothes shopping this time. I'll have fun, eat, come back, weigh in and get back on track.

This has been an excellent diet for me!

My ITG coach helped me change my way of thinking about food.

after photoI started the ITG Diet on July 28th 2015, at 186.4 pounds. Walking into the building was probably the hardest part. ITG Coach Jodi helped me change my way of thinking about food. My first week I lost 3.5 pounds and 4.5 inches overall. I knew I needed to do this for myself, and I felt that the diet plan was easy to follow.

The positive attitude I had taken on helped me a lot. Jodi always made me feel good about every pound and every inch. Having some crunchy and tasty ITG Foods with my salads and sugar-free dressing made it easier for me to lose the weight and stick to the diet! Starting each day with an ITG Food instead of coffee or a bar, and lots of water really gets me going. I don’t drink soda anymore, I drink a lot of water! I’m proud to say that I have lost 37.8 and over 20 inches. I did this in just 6 months! Please, try ITG for yourself. It works.

I wanted to feel sexy again for my wedding.

For most of my life I have struggled with my weight. I started working at ITG Diet in 2010 around the holidays. Of course not the best time to start a diet but I was determined and knew that I had to practice what I preach as a Wellness Coach here. I finally stirred up enough motivation and will power to do the plan and stick to it. The one thing that truly motivated me was my upcoming nuptials. I honestly did not even want to start planning the wedding until I felt better about myself much less get into a wedding dress. So I set off on my journey with ITG Diet and was able to average a 2lb weight loss per week. At times it wasn’t the easiest thing because of social events and temptations but one thing I kept saying to myself was “it’s only food”. It will still be there when you are in your maintenance step and able to have a reward day. I kept my eye on the ball which was feeling “sexy again” and comfortable in my own skin without having to always wear big, baggy clothes or set my purse in front of my stomach when I would sit down.

It took me 26 weeks but I lost a total of 53 pounds and 7% body fat my BMI even went down 7.5 points. I actually went down 6 SIZES, I saved a whole box of pants that were my smallest size and I just went through it and put on every single pair one after another. Some of them were even too big! I feel like a different person and I have maintained my weight by eating smart with proper food combining on step 3 and exercising. The important thing is I retrained myself on how to look at food. I read every label on every food I eat and I know how important protein is now. Also how getting vegetables and fresh foods in every day is essential. I am living proof that the plan does work!!!

This is the easiest diet plan I have ever attempted.

weight-loss testimonial

Just 102 days ago I had fallen and injured my right knee and the doctors told me I needed to lose 15 pounds. My daughter Tracy had recently started ITG Diet and told me how easy it was and she thought I would like it and be able to follow the diet. She was right! I had my original consultation with Joey, one of the wonderful Wellness Coaches at Slim Down St Pete & ITG Diet, he explained the program to me in terms I could understand. The food & supplements are great and affordable. I love all the food and am still choosing to eat ITG foods today. I look forward to my ITG pancake every morning for breakfast. I noticed I was actually saving money being on this diet, less trips to the grocery store. This is the easiest diet plan I have ever attempted, and I’m 76 years young, which means I have been at this for over 40 years. But now, finally success! I have reached my desired weight and am maintaining that weight. I recommend all dieters to try it!
Looking and feeling amazing!

weight loss challenge

To date, I've lost 38lbs. and my wife lost 23.

Our company sent out a diet challenge using the ITG Diet Plan. I contacted my wife and told her I was going to participate. She asked if she could do it as well. Shortly after we started my wife was deployed to Louisiana to help with the flood victims. We both stayed focused using the ITG Diet and support they offered. My wife had to reorder to her hotel room and it went seamlessly. After being away from each other when we reunited we were both amazed. To date I've lost 38 and my wife is down 23. The staff was helpful from day one and continue to check on us. I highly recommend the plan! Thank you for all your help. Especially Joe!

With the help of my coach, I was able to change my life.

My decision to go on the ITG Diet Plan was a wise one! With ITG Coach Jodi’s help, I was able to change my life.

I was on the ITG Diet for 5 months and lost 39.2 pounds and 16.5 inches overall. I am a diabetic and as I watched my weight drop, I also watched my blood sugar and blood pressure numbers drop.

Although my husband did not follow the diet plan, he did actually lose 35 pounds, mainly due to the healthy meals we learned from ITG, which we cooked and ate together! My husband is also diabetic, and saw his blood sugar levels drop much lower. I feel so much better now that I actually initiate the walks my husband and I take together. If you are fully committed to losing weight and faithfully follow the ITG Diet Plan, you too can be successful in losing those unwanted pounds! The commitment to follow the plan definitely helps build your character too!

Both Coach Jodi and Sherri are the best; they provided me with such a good example to follow as well as a lot of motivation to help me successfully reach my goal weight.
