Complete Transformation

“I was 37 years old, and I was at a low point in my life. Life was completely out of balance. I was working 10 plus hours a day and using food as a reward. I gained 50 pounds, and I was obese.”

Greg was burned out physically, emotionally, spiritually, and financially. He had no time for friends, and he only saw his family on holidays.

“I was so heavy and out of shape that I couldn't do my favorite things like surfing, yoga and snowboarding. I was embarrassed and frustrated because nothing seemed to work. I had failed at so many diets, even working with a triathlon coach five days a week didn't work.”

Greg started to believe there was nothing he could do, and that his overweight body might just be attributable to his genetics. He was beginning to give up.

“When I heard about the Program, and saw the science behind it, and met Dr. Wayne Andersen, I decided, “Why not give this a try?” I was blown away and with the dedication and support of my Coach, I lost 50* pounds in 10 weeks.”

Greg was thrilled to have found the Program. He had a Coach that kept him on track and the program was convenient and portable. He had tons of energy.

“By adopting the Habits of Health, I've been able to keep the weight off. Today, I feel like I can do anything. I can do yoga. I can surf. I can wakeboard. I can snowboard.”

Greg also became an OPTAVIA Coach (and one of my mentors). Being a Coach has not only been very rewarding for Greg personally, but he’s also been able to help others improve their lives as well. This has helped keep him accountable to his own healthy lifestyle.

Now Greg’s mission is to help others who feel like they're stuck and their life is out of balance.  “I love helping people get healthy and creating Optimal Wellbeing.”

Game Changer.

“My transformation began in January of 2016 when I started the Optimal Weight 5 & 1 Plan® and began to see immediate, substantial results in my physical health, and the mental focus and clarity that were byproducts of fueling my body the way it was designed to be fueled!”

Rebecca Ramsey became such a firm believer in the OPTAVIA program that three months into her journey she become an OPTAVIA Coach to keep herself accountable to her personal goal of achieving lifelong transformation, as well as to be an encouragement to others that sought Optimal Wellbeing.

The structure and support that is a vital part of OPTAVIA enabled Rebecca to lose in excess of 65 pounds.*

“The presence of a healthy Community, through having access to a supportive Coach and through participating in eight consecutive meltdown challenges, has kept me moving forward and closer to achieving lifelong transformation.”

Rebecca also ran a half-marathon. Before she began practicing the collective Habits of Health, she would never have dreamed of taking on such a challenge.

“I feel better, think better, sleep better, deal with stress better, and am so very blessed to have the opportunity to encourage others on their individual journeys towards Optimal Health! It is so true that we are better together when we surround ourselves with a healthy Community!”

Becoming a Client and Coach with OPTAVIA are two of the greatest accomplishments in Rebecca’s life, and she is incredibly excited to continue supporting others as they join the OPTAVIA program, Community, and way of life!

“Here's to being Agents of Transformation™ and getting America, and the world, healthy!”

Journey to Success - Carrie

"I love the OPTAVIA program and the support from my coach and community. I love how it has changed my life-and I love how my life is on a different path now. My kids are going to follow me on this path. They are going to see a mom who's happy, and confident, and looking forward to the future."

Carrie Frazier's transformation story began two years ago when she gave birth to her fourth child. "Being 44 years old, I was considered an older mom. And honestly, my body didn't bounce back as it did with my other kids. Although I was thrilled to be a mom again, my body was not in the best shape."

Carrie was tired and exhausted, and eating healthy was not on her mind. As the weight crept on, her self-esteem took a nosedive. "I found myself hiding clothes in the closet, avoiding mirrors, and deleting photos as soon as I saw myself. I was not living the life I wanted for my new daughter."

After starting the OPTAVIA program, Carrie noticed a difference quickly. "My hope returned and I felt more determined than ever to make the changes needed. Within six months, I had lost 80 pounds* and felt ten years younger. My energy has remained high and I look forward to weekly trips to the park with my daughter and being in photos with her!"

As a practicing nurse, Carrie already had a passion for helping others.  "Now I'm paying it forward and helping other people do it. It's so rewarding in my life. Best of all, the relationship I have with myself is healthy and positive once again. I feel blessed beyond measure to have found this life-giving, transformational program!"
