Philip Gieger lost 30 lbs* with Medifast!


Philip Before & After
Medifast Happy After winner, Philip Gieger, shares his experience with losing 30 lbs* with Medifast for Men’s Health Month. Click through to read his story!

*Results vary. Typical weight loss is 2-5 lbs per week for the first 2 weeks and 1-2 lbs per week thereafter.

When I went to my doctor, he told me that I needed to go on medication to lower my cholesterol. I had taken these meds before and didn’t like them because of their side effects–they caused pain in my arms and legs. I asked my doctor if there was another way for me to get healthy, and he recommended that I lose weight with Medifast.

For most people, 30 lbs of excess weight may not seem like a lot. But if you filled a backpack with 30 lbs of rocks and carried it around with you all day, you’d notice a difference.

After losing 30 lbs, I feel 100 percent better! I used to need energy drinks just to stay awake for my work, and now my energy level has improved to the point that I don’t even drink them anymore.

I go to the gym and lift weights with my 26-year-old son.  During the summers I play softball with him, and where before I could only last a few innings, now I’m lasting the whole game. At 50+ years old, I’m running the bases faster than I did when I was in my 20s.

Words can’t even convey how much better I feel in every way. My friends have seen the results for themselves, and five of them have joined the program inspired by my success. Even if you just need to lose 30 lbs or so, Medifast can make a huge difference in your life.
