Dr. Tina Marcantel is a naturopathic physician in Gilbert, Arizona, who also serves the East Valley cities of Chandler, Mesa, Scottsdale, Tempe, Queen Creek, Apache Junction, and the greater Phoenix area.

I’m a 35-year-old male who has been transformed by Dr. Marcantel’s weight loss program in just under a year. I have always been an active person and my health has always been important to me, but as I entered my 30’s my cholesterol and triglycerides had skyrocketed out of control due to a combination of genetics and diet. I work in a high stress environment and it began to take a toll on my health. I was still exercising regularly, but my metabolism wasn’t burning the fat and I knew I needed to do something other than the traditional “diet and exercise” conventional wisdom.

After first working with me to stabilize my hormones and adrenal glands, Dr. Marcantel suggested I try her version of the HCG diet, and the change in my health has been staggering. Since completing two rounds of the oral HCG drops and following Dr. Marcantel’s program I have dropped a total of 43 pounds. Most importantly, I was able to slash my triglycerides from around 600 to 102. My overall cholesterol, which had been near 300, is now 183 and my HDL/LDL ratio is now in the near perfect range. It’s amazing what you can accomplish inside of a year!

What I’ve learned most about the power of Dr. Marcantel’s weight loss program is that while it’s great to see the pounds go down on the scale every morning, it’s the inches of fat that disappear that I notice the most. Before I began I wore a 48 suit coat. Now my chest is 44 3/4. I used to wear a 38 waist in jeans (which were tight). Now I wear a 36 and they’re loose. I’ve even been able to squeeze into 34’s! Like a lot of men, I had gained weight in my face and neck. Prior to the program I had an 18 1/2 inch neck; now my neck is 16 inches. Needless to say, I’ve had to restock my wardrobe.

One of the biggest benefits of completing the program is the amount of confidence that I have gained in every aspect of my life. If you like the way you look, you will be a much happier and successful person. I am recommending Dr. Marcantel to anyone, male or female, who is looking to transform their health and body in a short period of time. I now weigh less than I did in high school!
