The process has actually been very easy. I’ve learned how to eat in a way that is completely sustainable and amazingly enjoyable. I still get to enjoy my favorite indulgences, something I was unwilling to give up.

The Problem

Doug and his father shared similar a personality as well as health traits. Doug was fully aware of the downside of those traits: dangerously high cholesterol being front and center stage.

Seeing the numbers on the scale – almost two hundred pounds – shook Doug to his core.

Doug was experiencing a complete disconnect between how he looked and felt versus how he wanted to look and feel.

Time to take action and roll out My Body Tutor!

The Action Plan

Doug and MyBodyTutor were perfect for each other. Doug was ready for some much needed support as well as accountability and that is what we’re known for.

Doug was soon to discover that the MBT way of life was sustainable as well as – in his words – “amazingly enjoyable”. When did the words “amazingly enjoyable” pop into your head when thinking about a weight loss program?

We knew that Doug was ready for his next role, a part that was no longer a stretch:

Why it Worked (in his words)

I knew, as I entered my forties, that I was inheriting my father’s legacy of off-color humor as well as high cholesterol and a prominent belly. (In his words, “With a tool like mine, you have to build a shed over it!”) I love that man, and when he died seven years ago of cancer of the spine, he also had a torn rotator cuff, diabetes, and a recent triple bypass surgery for his heart.

So, I go to my yearly physical this past November (which I had been avoiding because I was not taking my doctor’s previous dietary advice.) I was already on Simvastatin for dangerously high cholesterol. I stepped on the scale and…


5’11” and almost 200 pounds.

I immediately sprung into action:

anger at myself,

standing behind people in pictures,

pulling the sheet up over my belly in bed so my husband wouldn’t have to see it,

more anger at myself,

feeling apologetic at auditions,

feeling terrible that I was going to die at 65 like Dad and leave my husband a widower.

Strangely enough, this use of my energy didn’t work.

A little while later, I’m getting together with my pal Anna. Conversation turns to her work with Her passion about her work is infectious and the way works is right in line with things that motivate me.

Logging what I eat. I can do that.

Taking direction. I can do that.

The process has actually been very easy. I’ve learned how to eat in a way that is completely sustainable and amazingly enjoyable. I still get to enjoy my favorite indulgences, something I was unwilling to give up.

I weighed myself yesterday and realized that I’ve surpassed my target weight of 175. I’m down 24 pounds to 174.

It’s nice to have slightly baggy clothes.

It’s nice to breathe easily after walking up subway stairs.

It’s nice to have a dry waistline.

Fellow busy person, you too can make a profound change in your life and My Body Tutor is the most effective way I’ve come across to do that.

What did you say to yourself as you were reading Doug’s story?

It’s fascinating when we start to notice our own behavior. Typically, we distance ourselves from that person. We find something they have that we don’t. We make them into something other than an ordinary, regular person. Then, we create an excuse for why we can’t achieve the same level of success.

The most important thing to realize: Whatever anyone else has done or become, you can do or become as well, with the right support, guidance and accountability.

Here’s the best part: I guarantee it or your money back. I sincerely believe in what we offer that much. I know MBT will be the last program you ever do or need.
