I decided to participate in the Newtopia program because I have always been an active guy, going to the gym and doing things around the house. As I got older, my metabolism slowed down–even with my high activity–so I knew I needed to do something about it. I liked the fact that I would be accountable to someone and that there was a genetic component, which would help me find out what was holding me back and help reverse the weight gain. My energy level is much higher now and my blood sugar levels have improved. My clothing is also too big, which is great, and I am at a weight that I haven’t been at in 10 years.
