LOS ANGELES, Jan. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- For the series "Wake Up with Jillian," featured on The Doctors, health and wellness expert Jillian Michaels is working with BistroMD, the weight loss program that provides delicious meals designed to support weight loss, to help a couple addicted to unhealthy food lose weight.
On the show aired December 16th, Jillian Michaels recommended BistroMD as a way for Corey, a 29-year-old father of two, and his wife, Gena, to kick their addiction to unhealthy food. Now, after a month, Gena and Corey's progress on their journey to a healthier lifestyle is revealed.
At 320 pounds, Corey was addicted to fast food, eating it at least four times a day, with up to seven sodas daily. Gena, his wife, struggled with her own weight issues, and couldn't help but partake in some of her husband's bad eating habits from time to time. Jillian Michaels of The Doctors Show has recommended BistroMD to help transition them from their unhealthy eating habits to that of weight loss. Today, they have lost an additional 50 pounds for Corey and 44 pounds for Gena.
"Corey is just one of millions of Americans today who struggle with food addiction," says Caroline J. Cederquist, M.D., a board-certified physician in the field of weight management and the founding physician of BistroMD. "The key to beating obesity and overcoming food addiction is to start eating meals that contain the right balance of nutrition in the right portions. By delivering healthy and delicious meals to their home, we will help Corey and Gena beat their addiction to unhealthy food and help them lose weight."
In addition to being addicted to food, Corey has had numerous health scares and problems. At just 29 years old, Corey has been diagnosed with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and has been hospitalized due to stroke and heart attack symptoms. After having lost 50 pounds, and continuing, Corey says he feels more energized and better about himself. Gena also feels healthier, and says she will never go back to the previous lifestyle of unhealthy eating habits.
"With our meals, Corey will lose weight in a healthy and safe way, which will help drop his blood pressure and lower his cholesterol," says Dr. Cederquist. "Through their weight loss, Gena and Corey will notice a significant change in their weight, as well as an improvement in their overall health and energy levels. We will continue to offer Gena and Corey our support, and provide them with the resources they need to continue their healthy lifestyle."
