“I thought I was stuck. I was 52 years old, 300lbs, I was a heart attack waiting to happen. And you’re never too far gone to come back.”

Dieter Kris is a radio spokesperson for Plan Z in Bellefontaine, OH and an umpire for high school softball. Before he started Plan Z, Kris weighed 290lbs and was diagnosed with GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux disease) which he describes as acid reflux on steroids.  When asked what events lead to his weight gain, he credits a sedentary lifestyle, a metabolism that slowed with age and a hectic schedule with three kids in after school sports programs.

Fast forward to the time of this interview and Kris is down to 241lbs! “I feel like a shiny new nickel!” His symptoms of acid reflux have cleared up and he no longer needs to use frozen vegetables to soothe his knees after softball games. He found the most powerful motivator was watching the number on the scale getting smaller and smaller.  The Crave Control spray helped a lot too; it made reducing sugar in his diet a lot easier for him.

“Honestly, it’s probably more difficult for me to think of an area of my life that hasn’t improved!”

Listen to his experience firsthand below.

Kris continues to share accolades for Plan Z on air with WPKO in Bellefontaine. He gives this advice to new dieters, “Follow the plan. Follow it to the letter and you will lose weight…Trust the plan. Let it work.”
