“I liked the way the diet gave me a structured, manageable routine to follow that worked well with my personal and hectic business schedule.”
Steve received a wake-up call as he watched his wife’s brother being rushed into surgery for a triple coronary bypass operation. Only 39 years old, his brother-in-law was mildly overweight with no signs of heart disease. Steve thought “I must do something about my weight; I love life and my family too much to jeopardize my health.” He realized he was not at his optimal health or weight, and joined the Smart for Life® Weight Management Center in Boca Raton.
“I had no problem dining out and loved the way I could take my Smart for Life® Smart Cookies with me everywhere without worrying about finding a refrigerator or microwave.”
Sharing the success of the program, Steve has motivated others to join the Smart for Life® Program, including his wife.
For years, Steve and his wife tried and were unable to conceive a baby. It is well known in medicine that obesity alone or in combination with thyroid abnormalities can affect fertility. “By identifying and correcting Laurie’s thyroid condition, her weight loss efforts became much more effective, and most likely the combination of the two contributed significantly to their successful pregnancy”, said Dr. Shafi.
“Once my wife’s thyroid condition was treated at the Smart for Life® Center, she was able to lose weight, qualify for In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) treatments, and we are now expecting our first child,” Steve beams. “Thank you Smart for Life® for changing our lives.”
