Real words about true change


I was in denial about being overweight, and there’s a family history of diabetes so I knew I had to make some changes. I lost 60 lbs. with Real Appeal!

- Sandra L.


When I joined Real Appeal, I could see the results right away. I’ve lost 80 lbs.! I look better, I feel better and I’m no longer pre-diabetic. I changed my life forever!

- Rochelle W.


I’ve lost 147 lbs. with Real Appeal! When I went into the doctor’s office, he could not believe that I had not had surgery, that I had lost 45% of my body mass the healthy way. Thank you!
