Jackie Reid says she didn't pay attention to food labels until she started Bob's plan—and it's really paid off. In 1997, Jackie weighed 287 pounds, but now she is nearing her goal weight with a total loss of 100 pounds!

Jackie attributes her success to hard work and perseverance. "That was the main thing I learned from [Bob's] diet. You have to get active, you have to stay active, and you have to do it for life. Now I'm ready to lose 20 more!" she says.

Bob says working out is crucial for long-term weight loss success—and even people with busy schedules can find the time. "You've got to find a way to fit it in," he says. "Contrary to what a lot of people say to slow down your exercise, we see better results in shorter bouts of exercise, but a little intense, where you're breathing, you're able to talk, but you don't feel like talking too long."

In addition to the benefits of working out, Jackie says the Best Life Diet seal of approval has helped her figure out what to buy at the grocery store. "It takes all the guesswork out when you're shopping. You know exactly what to get," she says.
