June 1, 2011 - PRLog -- Readers of Healthy Living Magazine may notice something’s missing from the June issue: about 265 pounds.

The magazine features an article about Eustis’s B.E. Thompson who has made a lifestyle transformation, with the help of Total Nutrition and Therapeutics’ (TNT) nutrition program (

In the article, Thompson shares the diet and nutrition, exercise and confidence-building regimen that have led him to lose half of his body weight in just over one year.

Lori Esarey, TNT’s founder and president, was enlisted by the magazine to help with Thompson’s transformation and was tasked with developing an individualized nutritional plan and to meet with Thompson weekly.

“Each week we explored his successes, disappointments, challenges and worked together to develop strategies to overcome,” said Esarey. “Our method ranged from packing lunches to discovering how to eat out; preparing for a party and holidays; and setting priorities that were consistent with his goals.”

“I started the process with a trainer but wasn’t fully engaged until Lori entered the picture,” said Thompson. “She taught me that the right mix of protein foods, carbohydrates and fats, eaten at the right time, can actually help build muscle strength instead of turning into fat. I was never told to stay away from certain foods but to make the right choices. That’s the lifestyle change that has had the greatest impact on me.”

TNT provides clients with individualized programs in weight management, disease state management and sports and fitness nutrition.
•   Each 13-week program starts with the client gaining an understanding of his/her current state of health including body fat, laboratory findings and eating patterns.
•   Clients set goals and Esarey schedules at least weekly consultations to help ensure success.
•   Weekly meetings drive home the value of the choices with regard to nutrition balance.
•   Clients learn “excuse-free living” which means that by being informed about the nutritional decisions they make, they have no apologies, no regrets and no guilt.

“Thirteen months after beginning his weight-loss journey, B.E. has defied all odds by losing an amazing 265 pounds,” said Kendra Akers, publisher of Healthy Living Magazine. “He has inspired so many people along the way and is a shining example that you can accomplish anything you put your mind to.”

“It’s humbling to know that I’ve had this affect on others,” said Thompson. “I knew the only way I’d be successful is to be accountable. To do it in such a public way has helped me stay on track and stay focused. I was determined to succeed.”
