John DeGreve's Story


Valpak Owner and President

“If it seems to be too good to be true it probably is!” How often have we heard that statement? When I first heard about the HCG Diet, that was my reaction. However my skepticism has been disproven!

I was overweight at 235 pounds with high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and high cholesterol. I was on six prescription drugs trying to control my symptoms. I had tried other diets plans in the past only to lose weight and eventually gain the pounds back. In January 2012, I met with Dr. Kurani at his Moline Weight Loss Clinic to discuss the HCG diet. I felt that this was a program that I could embrace.

With discipline and determination I began my diet. The combined involvement of body, mind and diet worked. I taped a copy of his suggested mantras on my mirror so that I would see it every morning and night to help encourage my journey. I followed the suggested diet plan faithfully and also recorded my blood pressure morning and evening each day. The pounds began to fall away. The weekly body measurements told me that I was losing belly fat not muscle. I lost 30 pounds in 40 days using this HCG diet program.

The best part is that I have reprogrammed my thinking about eating. I eat healthy now. As of today August 21, 2012, I have lost a total of 45 pounds. My waist has gone from 42” to 36”. But more importantly, I am down to just one prescription drug for heart blood flow. My blood pressure is normal, my blood sugar is controlled, and my cholesterol is in a healthy range.

Sure, I have had to replace my wardrobe, but that is a small price to pay to better health. People are constantly telling me how much healthier I look. I tell everyone who asks about the HCG Diet. I may been a skeptic, but today I can attest to the success of this program in my health and in my life. I would recommend the HCG Diet to anyone who is serious about losing weight and improving their lifestyle!
