100 lbs lighter

"BistroMD has been an amazing blessing in my life. I finally lost the weight, I look and feel years younger, and I look forward to where it will bring me in the future."

Phil's Story


I've been struggling with my weight for about 7 years. When I started bistroMD, I weighed 285 pounds. To say I felt like garbage is an understatement. After just 2 or 3 weeks with bistroMD, I started feeling noticeably better.
I started making three things my top priority: water, sleep and intermittent fasting (which included bistroMD). Now about a year and a bunch of bumps later, I've lost 100 pounds! Every morning I think about how awesome it is that I am not out of breath putting on socks anymore. I don't hate tying my shoes or walking to my car. I couldn't do anything before, life was just a lot harder.
My goal in my new fit life is to get more into working out and to get into martial arts.
