What does it take to turn your life around? Glen Ellyn resident, Derek Almada was a college athlete who, after graduation started gradually putting on weight. 15 years later, the father of two young boys found himself at 365 pounds, in poor health, suffering from sleep apnea and teetering on high blood pressure. He knew something had to change.

After many years of unsuccessful yo-yo dieting, at age 40 he signed up for Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating’s (SSHE) 1,200 calorie/day meal plan and the rest is history! Eating nothing but SSHE’s freshly prepared meals, one year later Derek is 141 pounds lighter. Weighing in at 224 pounds, Derek is happier and healthier than ever and is a new dad to his two sons who have never seen him this thin. “I did it for them” says Derek, “I want to be able to play ball with them and be there to watch them grow up.”

Many businesses try to inspire people to lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle, but SSHE is actually doing it.  This multi-generational, family owned and operated business out of Ottawa, IL not only inspires their clients to eat healthy, they personally help their clients along the way and guarantee that if their clients stick to their program, they will lose weight.  SSHE has Derek, among many other satisfied clients, to prove it!

I think it's great but he better learn how to buy and cook his own food or he's just an addict waiting to fall off the wagon.

Thanks for your feedback Dr. Silicon! Derek has been on our program for over a year now which has taught him the necessary tools to maintain his new healthy weight. He has truly undergone a lifestyle change with the SSHE program because he has learned portion and calorie control. If you have any additional questions about the SSHE plan please feel free to reach out to me at corp@sshe.com. Thank you!
