OMAHA, Neb. — It’s finally starting to feel like spring outside, and with the warmer weather comes the incentive to drop those extra winter pounds. Hundreds of Omahans are taking a new challenge, eating cookies and drinking shakes to lose weight and feel better.
Cheri and Bob Patterson are full of laughter and life. She’s lost 27 pounds, and he’s gotten his health back.
“Overall, it’s given me a lot of energy and strength,” Bob Patterson said.
He said it’s a big change from a year ago when he was coming off a quadruple bypass and renal failure.
The couple gives credit to a new nutritional system called Body By Vi.
Rhonda and Tony Lucero brought the program to Omaha about a year ago.
“What we’re giving people is a very simple solution: nutrition,” Tony Lucero said.
The basis of the program is to replace one or two meals a day with a shake. Each shake is said to contain the nutrition of several fruits and vegetables. The cookies come into play between meals as a nutritious, fiber-rich snack.
“Exercise is wonderful, but if you’re not putting the right fuel into your body, you’re not going to get the results you’re looking for,” Rhonda Lucero said.
Exercise is encouraged, though. Along with the products, the company offers continuous 90-day challenges, were participants can win prizes to mark their success.
Around 300 people in Omaha have signed up for Body By Vi.
“We have over 5,000 pounds already lost,” Rhonda Lucero said.
“All of the sudden, I feel like I did in my 20s. I’m popping out of bed in the morning, which I’ve never done in my life,” Cheri Patterson said.
For Cheri and Bob Patterson, the program offers a new way of living.
“We’ve developed a new lifestyle, and that’s making the difference,” Bob Patterson said.
Check with your doctor before trying any weight loss program.
