When 35-year-old Peter saw Bob introduce the Best Life Diet on The Oprah Show in January 2007, he was moved to write in his journal.
"January 15, 2007. I watched Oprah today and heard Bob Greene talking about losing weight and how it's not a diet but a lifestyle change. After years of struggling to lose weight and trying every diet out there, this really hit home for me. At 332 pounds and unable to keep up with my 4-year-old son, I need to make a change.
"I know I need to cut out all the fast food, pizza and soda once and for all. I know I need to get moving. I just hope I have the strength this time."
