Dr. Phil Guest Marilyn Chivetta Loses 129 Pounds with BistroMD

NAPLES, FL—For a woman whose personal mantra is “Claim your cleavage!” Marilyn A. Chivetta sure has a reason to celebrate her newly-found confidence. The Dr. Phil guest has managed to lose over 129 pounds and credits her success to BistroMD, the weight loss program that delivers delicious entrees for a lighter, healthier you.

“Eating BistroMD, I feel so fabulous!” says Chivetta. “This program has literally saved my life! I don’t know where I would be now if it wasn’t for BistroMD.”

Marilyn endured many hardships that led to her struggles with weight, but nothing was as traumatic as being left by her fiancé, just six days before her walk down the aisle.

Her story was featured over a span of three episodes on Dr. Phil, where Marilyn opened up about the betrayal and how it negatively impacted her health and well-being.

“I wasn’t myself, and I was only able to fit in baggy jeans and t-shirts,” says Chivetta. “My son is an Eagle Scout, and I am a troop leader. I would often burst into tears, because I couldn’t keep up with the boys. I would run out of breath doing the most basic physical tasks. I often sat on the sidelines taking pictures, which made me feel worse.”

Wanting to help Marilyn get her life back on track, Dr. Phil recommended that Marilyn try BistroMD. Within ten months, Marilyn managed to lose over 129 pounds.

“For someone who has had so many hardships, we are so proud of Marilyn’s success,” says Caroline J. Cederquist, M.D., the founding weight loss physician of BistroMD. “It is so rewarding to see someone as vibrant as Marilyn find true happiness on our program. We are so glad that she has managed to get her life and her health back.”

“I finally feel like my bombshell-self again,” says Chivetta. “The baggy jeans and t-shirts were hiding my true personality—which is a glamorous, confident and fabulous woman! Now, I can strut confidently in my heels, I feel sexy, and I’m claiming my cleavage—I’m owning who I am, believing in my dreams and making it happen!”

Marilyn is working toward reaching her goal of losing 50 more pounds by the end of the year. She doesn’t think it will be an issue, simply because she is eating such fantastic food.

“It’s easy and simple, especially in the beginning,” says Chivetta. “I love the Mediterranean Chicken with feta and eggplant, and the crepes for breakfast are fabulous!”
