After losing 37 pounds I feel 100% better

After David saw a long time friend of his have great success on Plan Z, he decided to try it for himself.

"I had handicapped plates on my car, and I was walking with a cane because I was in a lot of pain. And I spend an enormous amount of money on just my medication every month and my insulin (because I'm a diabetic). And I thought, you know, either I'm going to have to just lay down and die, or I'm going to have to do something about it."

Although he was skeptical because of a negative experience with the Atkins diet, he ordered Plan Z and committed to the program. He stayed true to the program and followed it consistently. After 50 days, Dave lost 37 pounds. He was amazed, and his doctor was very impressed. Not only did Dave lose a lot of weight, but he no longer needed the high levels of diabetes medication that he was taking before.

"I don't park in the handicap parking anymore, I leave that for somebody else who really needs it. I park further away but that's ok because I don't need a cane anymore. I feel 100% better...I just can't believe how much 37 pounds made a difference in my life. It's incredible."

Listen to his inspirational interview.

"I've been really educated. Very educated. The videos and the stuff that you send us - I never miss one, I watch everything....I've learned how to eat. You wouldn't think that's something I would have to learn, but I learned what to eat and not to eat....

"If you're going to commit to this, commit to it 100%. It's not nearly as bad as you think as far as diets go. Nobody likes the word diet, but -- wow. Once you start losing weight, and you will, you'll be encouraged. Every time you look down at the scale it's going to give you that much encouragement...This is a commitment, it's a lifetime change, it's a change for the better, you'll feel better, you'll look better, and your doctor will like you better. I guarantee it."

The best arthritis pain killer that I've ever had

"I finally get it. I finally had someone tell me the truth about what I should put in my body and what I shouldn't put in my body....The education that you and Zola have given me is just second to none...I know without a doubt that I'm going to eat healthy for the rest of my life." -- Dieter Jim

Dieter Jim is a sixty-two-year-old truck driver who has it figured out. Obviously he’s figured out how to lose weight. He lost 46 pounds in his very first 50-day round of ZReduction.

He’s also learned how to fuel his body.
Even when he eats lunch in his truck.

He works the loading dock in the morning. He’s in and out of that truck twelve hours a day, five days a week. At 248 pounds, he used to come home exhausted. And very sore.

No more.

Listen to his story. He’ll tell you about the good news he got from his doctor at his last checkup. Plus, he had some great news for his doctor.

Find out why going to the supermarket has become a new adventure.
And hear why he sometimes yells at the radio as he’s driving.

It’s all good:
His weight.
His health.

And his dedication maintaining both of them.


As a diabetic, Plan Z changed my life

"You're not on a diet for the rest of your life, you've just been educated on what you should and should not eat." - Dieter Jay

Dieter Jay is a numbers guy. He is incredibly analytical, and after a lot of deliberation, decided to do Plan Z. He took the Plan Z education very seriously and got excited as he applied what he learned - and got immediate results. After an impressive 33 pound loss on Plan Z, he dropped 6 pant sizes, and even though he is a diabetic, his blood glucose levels (unexpectedly) normalized. He has more energy, more stamina, and his doctor happily took him off his diabetes medication because Jay's blood sugar levels are now under control.

"I averaged a blood glucose level of 156 for a couple of months prior to starting the plan using my little portable meter. During the 6 weeks on ZReduction I averaged 110. I was taking two, 500 mg Metformin pills a day as I have been since I was diagnosed a couple of years ago. After my annual physical in mid-July this year, my doctor reduced my medication to one pill a day for the next two weeks, and then he had me stop taking the pill completely. During the two weeks of half-medication I've averaged 118 and after stopping completely, I've averaged 121. So obviously, the meter doesn't lie....

Unless you educate yourself and really understand what's going on, you can count those calories all day long, but it's the types of foods you're in-taking with those calories...[and] you have to understand how it's impacting your body.... 

I'm not saying all diabetics can come off their medications or no longer be a diabetic, but there can be no doubt that the educational benefits are significant. And simply losing the weight and knowing what to eat can have an impact on a diabetic's health. Or, for that matter, on the average person's health especially if you've been diagnosed as pre-diabetic."

After 7 Weeks of Learning I've Lost 26 Pounds

“I reached out to Plan Z Diet two months ago for help. You know me. I love my craft beer, my burritos, my red wine, and my iced coffees. I like to live life and have fun. But recently it became too much.

The picture on the left is from March at GnashVegas. Truth is, I photoshopped the picture when I initially posted it. I made my arms and face smaller so I was comfortable enough to make it public. Why am I living like this?!?! Photoshop can save my pictures, but it can't save me in real life.

Plan Z didn't ask me to post this. I'm just ecstatic enough to personally share with you my results. After completing almost seven weeks of proper education and guidance from Plan Z, I've lost 26 pounds, and besides red-eye removal, the current photo of me on the right remains untouched!!"

Here Comes the Bride: Taunya Iverson

In Owensboro, KY, Cromwell Radio General Manager Taunya was buying shirts that were long because she was trying to hide. After viewing herself in some pictures she said, "Oh my god what have I done!"

She had recently seen a coworker who had lost a lot of weight and kept it off, and asked them how they did it. The answer was Plan Z.

"I just need to do this and get back to being myself"

Fast forward to today and she's lost 45 lbs.

She no longer feels bloated, and no longer needs to drink mountain dew to keep herself awake.

Taunya started Plan Z shortly after deciding to marry the love of her life.

By the time she went for her 2nd wedding dress fitting she was 4 sizes smaller than when she had picked the dress out, making quite a bit of work for the seamstress.

Now Taunya has also fallen in love with the Plan Z recipes. Some of them she knows by heart!

And her 17-year-old son tells her how proud he is of her for sticking with it and kicking those cravings.

Taunya says the most important thing to know is what to eat and what not to eat. With the education she got from Plan Z she's able to keep the weight off, not just lose it.

"Stick with it, it's definitely worth it." -- Taunya

The Real Deal

"I gotta say Plan Z is the real deal!

I have tried several programs that all ended the same way - gaining the weight back. Zola really made this program to work and help train yourself how to eat and what to eat. The recipes are delicious and super easy to make. All the tools you need to be successful are in the Plan Z manual. I lost 25 lbs and I feel like I didn't have to sacrifice to do so. I would definitely recommend this program to everyone!!

Also, because I lost so much weight I had an online closet sale to get rid of all my XL clothes and in doing so I made $507 - so I won twice!!

Thank you, Zola and team, for making this possible."

No Longer the Big Guy in the Room

Dave's interview took place after he lost 40 pounds. He kept losing and has now lost over 70 pounds.


“So, when that first digit on your weight changes to a 3##, your motivation changes.

At least it did with me.

I didn't get depressed, I got ANGRY. Why was I so fat?!

I heard about the Plan Z Diet and wanted to try it. Little did I know that it wasn't that I was eating too much, I was eating the wrong stuff.

So with some determination and a little bit of sacrifice (that was made a lot easier with the ZR50 crave control spray), I lost 70+ pounds!

I have also stopped most of my medications, still working on that last pill. My knees don't ache when I get out of bed anymore.

I was so successful, that both my sisters also started the plan.

I feel so much better and don't feel like the biggest guy in the room anymore.”

It Is A Life Changer

Listen to Doug's interview, which took place after Doug completed his first round. Since that time he's lost a total of 84 pounds and married the woman he loves.



I started out as a skeptic at age 58. I was resigned to being "big" the rest of my life. I assumed when you get older you just pack on pounds. I signed up at the urging of a family member - that hurt! I have tried many of the different diets out there and had some minimal success but the weight always came back.

I was hopeful that I could maybe lose 20 pounds. Boy, was I wrong. The weight just started coming off and kept on coming. I eventually did four rounds. I was so happy to get to 200 and then the last round got me down to 177. I lost four inches in pants waist size and went from 2XL shirts to a size Large. I am happy that I have found something that works. I avoid all those bad foods: potatoes, noodles, pasta, bread and sweets and anything with sugar or HFCS....all the things I have learned from you!

I got married in November 2017 to the most beautiful lady and I am blessed in so many ways. One way is that I can be at this healthy weight and MAINTAIN it!

I want to be this thin the rest of my life. It is a life changer.

Thank you Zola!

Biggie's Favorite Recipes

These are some of Biggie’s favorite Plan Z meals.

With access to hundreds of recipes on the Plan Z website, Biggie said there wasn’t one recipe he tried that he didn’t make again. His favorites included Zola’s Creole Meatloaf (which became a favorite for his mom as well), and Zola’s Ranch Chicken. This particular chicken dish proved so tasty that Biggie would make the recipe for dinner and use the leftovers for lunch the next day. Meticulously mapping out all of his meals, Biggie used this key strategy that many successful Plan Z dieters use.

“When you start taking control, cooking your own food and developing your own favorite recipes you’re describing a strategy that our most successful dieters use, which is having the next meal planned,” said Chris (our VP of Anger Management), and Biggie agrees. “It’s a very important strategy for people because it is so easy to forget and then grab something not allowed and then get frustrated because your weight loss stalls.”

Delicious, satisfying, whole foods are a large part of Plan Z. We have over 900 recipes that are exclusive to the diet. You get to choose from those recipes every day and make your own meals.

Diet food doesn’t have to taste like diet food. You’ll gain more control over your diet and more importantly, you’ll stop relying on packaged and processed foods (the foods that make us fat) for meals. Most recipes take less than 20 minutes to prepare and cook. You’ll have plenty of choices and you don’t have to be a great cook, or even a cook at all, to make these meals. You can choose from “fancy” food or comfort foods. You can even have dessert!

Dieters lose an average of 31 pounds during the 50-day ZReduction phase. Learn more about the four phases here. Want to see their success stories? Click here.
