"I have confidence for the first time in my life."

I have struggled with weight all of my life. I never had confidence. I tried every fad diet out there. A few years ago I started eliminating every single carb from my diet. It worked... I dropped weight – fast, too fast. Thing is, as fast as it went, it came back faster. I ended up on a roller coaster ride. I felt tired all the time, and I never felt truly healthy or good about myself.

After the birth of my first child, I couldn't lose the weight. I wasn't obese, but I was overweight. It was then that I gave up. After the birth of my second child I looked in the mirror and said "I will never look like this again.” The pain was too much and I knew I needed to do something about it.

I had known about the Venice Nutrition program for over 10 years and knew that it was a program that worked, but until that moment I’d never felt ready to make the lifestyle change. This time I was ready and more committed than ever.

I loved the Venice Nutrition program right from the start. I loved journaling, I loved learning, and I loved working out. Most of all, I loved that after just one week, I was already seeing results, and not only that, people were noticing! I finally have energy, feel great, and for the first time in my life I have confidence!!!

With the help of the VN support team and the online program, I reached my goal and I’ve stayed with the program. This is the most fit I have ever been in my life and it feels amazing. VN isn't a diet, it's a lifestyle change that teaches you a new understanding of food and fitness. It has changed my life forever, and best of all I can pass all of my new found education to my kids so they never have to struggle like I did.

Thank you Venice Nutrition.

"I’ve never been hungry once during my whole ‘lifestyle change’."

My name is Scott Jedlinski. I am very excited to be writing this testimonial for Venice Nutrition!

After being completely focused on my career for the past 15 or so years, my weight grew from 210 lbs in 1994 to about 305 lbs in December of 2008. During that time my knees went bad so my exercise decreased to playing basketball once a week (which wreaked more havoc on my knees). Thankfully, my wife Beverly persuaded (read: forced) me to start going to the gym again in January of 2009. She also signed me up for the Venice Nutrition program in April.

The first step was visiting my Venice Nutrition Coach, Lori Davis. What I love about Venice Nutrition is that they start by asking what you WILL NOT eat. For example, I hate beets, green beans, etc. I hate measuring food as I am still very busy with my job. So Lori introduced me to protein shakes and supplements to accommodate my busy schedule (read: laziness). That’s when my fat loss took off! Oh one more thing, I have never been hungry once during my whole “lifestyle change”. As a matter of a fact, sometimes it is hard to eat all this good food.

So how much have I lost? When Lori got a hold of me in April 2009, I weighed 295 (I was 305 in December of 2008). As of July 2010, I am down to 216! That’s 79 lbs in a little over a year!

And I am not stopping there. I want to get down to around 210 lbs. This will help me keep up with the young guys at the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu dojo…that I have been training at since mid-July 2009 because I have lost so much weight!

"When I found Venice Nutrition, I finally found the missing piece to my fitness puzzle."

- Matt Dean

I have always been an active individual. I have competed in many high school sports, but even with a high level of physical activity, my weight would fluctuate. I would eat whatever I wanted; I thought the only way to get into shape was through intense exercise.

I thought staying active was enough. I never understood why I was overweight even though I led an active lifestyle. When I found Venice Nutrition, I finally found the missing piece to my fitness puzzle. Venice taught me that exercise alone is not enough. I now realize that my fitness goals and my nutrition will forever be linked. I learned that if you fuel your body with the right nutrients, success is inevitable. When I finally made that connection my whole life changed!

Venice Nutrition has shown me that they are a company that will always be showing other companies what it means to be “cutting edge”. They do not just stay ahead of the curve, they set the curve and they are committed to bringing everybody with them. For this reason, becoming part of the Venice Nutrition family was and is the best decision that I have ever made.

I was pregnant with my second baby when I heard about Venice Nutrition. My mom started the program and over a period of a few months I saw drastic improvements to her body, and also her energy. I knew after seeing my mom do it, that after the baby came I wanted to start right away….and I did.

Two weeks after my son was born I started. The first change I noticed, was how drastically my energy increased, and with 2 kids, a full time job and a husband that travels…that’s something I desperately needed. I even found myself getting up to go exercise before work in the mornings!!

Over all I found the program relatively easy and well worth the effort. It’s not just a diet…it’s truly a lifestyle change.

"I thank Venice Nutrition for being my foundation of nutrition for life."

I believe I was born to teach and train people to be fit and healthy. When I was 19 years old I had my first job in a gym; that was over 25 years ago. I am now in my late 40's, a mother of teenagers, and have been in the fitness industry most of my life. Helping people become fit and healthy is my passion and I am proud and ecstatic to share it.

Over the years I have seen diets come and go. I have seen too many people lose weight only to gain it back, plus put on additional weight in the process. Diets and quick fixes fail people. Proper nutrition works. I was always searching for the right nutrition program that I could teach and endorse to my clients. While hosting a healthy lifestyle fitness radio show I heard about Venice Nutrition. I was hesitant to believe this was finally going to be a program to really help people live a healthy and fit lifestyle. I decided it was worth a shot and I met with the creator of the system, Mark Macdonald. It took me only 10 minutes to know I finally found the real thing, the real foundation of nutrition for myself, all my clients, and anyone else who was looking for a healthy nutrition program for real life lasting results.

Venice Nutrition has taken my good nutrition and made it GREAT!! Every client I have referred has embraced and adjusted to the program easily. They look great and feel great. Mark and the Venice Nutrition team have come up with the way to make proper nutrition available to everyone. Personally I thank them for being my foundation of nutrition for life.

I have always lived a busy lifestyle. My business has always seemed to be my top priority. That changed when I was confronted with high blood pressure, known as the 'silent killer'. I had a choice to make, make my health a priority or deal with the consequences, and frankly I like living. I sought the help of the Venice Nutrition System. My results were fantastic and my weight, body fat percentage and blood pressure are now under control. I want to personally thank the Venice Nutrition System for teaching me the power of blood sugar stabilization and to how balance my health with my business.

Before I began the Venice Nutrition system, my weight was at it’s highest of around 267 pounds. Since then, I have lost over 40 pounds and my cholesterol has dropped 60 points. I have also been able to get off of my blood pressure medication and it is now in a very healthy range. My endurance during exercise has improved drastically.

Because of Venice Nutrition, I have learned how to eat and exercise correctly and this is the best shape I have been in a long time.

I have experimented with virtually every diet program in the last 15 years. I have done low calories, low carbohydrates and stimulants. I once even dropped over 100 pounds and then it all came back and then some. I was looking for a solution for my inconsistent weight and yo-yo dieting. Food had controlled me for years and Venice Nutrition taught me how to allow my body to work for me and achieve Permanent Results! I am now down 135 pounds and still counting! Thank You Venice Nutrition!
