Rockstar of the Month: March 2019

“For almost 20 years, I had lost and gained the same 30 pounds, and even having lost that 30 pounds, I was still very overweight. I had high blood pressure and cholesterol, and my glucose levels were not good. I felt stuck, frustrated, and scared about my health. I knew I had to do something different, and Enara has made that difference.

After 2 rounds of VLCD and a few months on Stepwise, I have lost nearly 60 pounds. I went off my blood pressure meds 6 weeks ago, and my blood pressure has stayed down. My glucose and cholesterol are both down also. I look and feel better, but more importantly, I am measurably healthier!

I love Enara’s real food approach and have enjoyed finding creative ways to cook and eat healthy and delicious food. Also, I get to eat peanutbutter, one of my favorite foods!

I am no longer shopping in plus sizes, and I have donated bags and bags of BIG clothes!

The support and expertise of the Enara staff have been instrumental in my being able to finally break through that 30-pound barrier. Dr. Bailony’s grasp of the data and his ability to communicate it clearly are amazing. Viveca’s patience, encouragement, and sense of humor have kept me going! Vince’s workouts of high intensity interval training and resistance training have helped me lose fat and gain muscle. I have gotten so much stronger that Zumba isn’t quite enough of a workout anymore, so I have “graduated” to kickboxing! 

I hope to retire next year and look forward to being strong, active, and healthy, thanks to Enara.”

Chris lost 58 lbs (26% of her starting weight) in less than 10 months:

Chris reduced her A1c from 7.0 to 6.0:

  • Hemoglobin A1c measures the percentage of your blood hemoglobin that is coated with glucose (sugar). This test reflects your average blood sugar level for the past 2-3 months.
  • A level less than 5.7 is normal, and a level between 5.7 and 6.4 indicates pre-diabetes. A Hg A1c level of 6.5 percent or higher indicates Type 2 Diabetes.

Chris reduced her triglycerides by 78%:

  • Fatty foods and carbohydrates that we eat are broken down into globs of fat called triglycerides.
  • High levels of triglycerides can increase your risk for heart disease, stroke, and nerve damage.
  • Excess glucose in the blood can be used to make triglycerides, which is why people with insulin sensitivity, pre-diabetes, or diabetes often also have elevated triglycerides.

Chris reduced her total cholesterol by 37%:

  • Cholesterol is a waxy substance that comes from two sources: your body and food.
  • Excess cholesterol can form plaque between layers of artery walls, making it harder for your heart to circulate blood. 
  • There are two types of cholesterol: “good” and “bad.” Too much of one type — or not enough of another — can put you at risk for coronary heart disease, heart attack or stroke.
