I was severely depressed because of my weight. I was not even accepting offers to go out to have fun because I have nothing to wear that would fit me. I think the biggest wake-up call is when I went to a concert with a friend and got up to dance and I was sure my pants were just gonna rip in half. So the next day, I went to Dr. Katsura’s program.
I lost 50 pounds and it feels incredible! I went from a size 14 to a 4. I can fit in to nice clothes. I never turn down invitations now. I have a lot more self-confidence. My body is healthier and I don’t have the problem with my joints which I had before. They are just non-existent. I can walk up and almost bound up the stairs. I have no problems with exercise.”
“Well, my story began with just getting to this point when I was so overweight. It was causing me health issues and I was having problems with my joints. I just felt lethargic and heavy. I just felt really miserable. I also had the opportunity to see my friend in the nursing home and so many of those people are in the nursing home simply because they didn’t take care of themselves. The whole thing is a wake-up call.

Christine was Certain She’s Going to Be Successful with the Program
“I was certain I was going to lose the weight. I’d been a yoyo dieter and used to it. I was capable of losing 40 LBS or more at a stretch. I went from a size 14 to a 4. I was certain I was going to be successful on the program with his help. I’ve got to a point when I can’t motivate myself anymore. So, I needed the accountability and the support to do it. I can’t do it on my own again.”
It Feels Like a Family When You Go In There
“First of all, you have the support of his entire office staff which are excellent. It feels like a family when you go in there. I always look forward going in for my Saturday weigh-ins. His program is different because being a medical doctor, he can watch over the important things that can go wrong if you try to do it on your own. He can make sure that you’re taking the proper nutritional things to accomplish your goal. Where if you’re doing it on your own, or just winging it, you can have a lot of imbalance on what you’re really need to stay healthy.”
I Am Looking Forward To Having a Lot of Pleasant Experiences Travelling
“I love to travel. That was a passion of mine but when you’re heavy, when you’re really heavy, like I was, it’s difficult to get in and out on an airplane seats and to strap on the seatbelt. It’s not pleasant. I am looking forward to having a lot of pleasant experiences travelling and to actually get off the sidelines of life and start fully participating. Because I have a bucket list and I wanted to start doing those things. But it easier to do it when you’re slim and healthy.”
It Feels Incredible
“It feels incredible! I can fit into nice clothes. I never turn down invitations now. I have lot more self-confidence, my body is healthier and I don’t have the problem with my joints I had before. They are just non-existent. I can walk up and almost bound up the stairs. I have no problems with exercise and things like this now.
When you’re heavy, it’s difficult to bend down, to tie your shoes, to even just get in and out your car. It’s easier to strain your muscles. I just don’t want any part of that. I want to be a strong, healthy and fit as I can be.”
People Start Noticing a Lot
“It’s been incredible! You know when you’re really overweight, the first twenty pounds people don’t even notice but as you get into the 30, 40 and then 50-pound mark, people start noticing a lot. So you encourage a lot of people. I know a lot of people in our office that are more inspired to lose weight and in fact one of the guys in the office has decided to join Dr. Katsura’s program. I think you create a lot of positive energy when you’re exuding that, when you feel good, it also inspires others to do it.”
Dr. Katsura’s Program – A Source of Inspiration and Support
“I tell them to go to Dr. Katsura’s program because he’s a tremendous source of inspiration and support for me and I don’t think I could have done it this time. In fact, I’m sure I couldn’t have done it this time without him and without his counsel and all the things he did to help me.”
I Would Thank Dr. Katsura for Making it a Good Experience
“Dr. Katsura, I would thank him just for making it a good experience. Most people think of losing weight as a very negative, difficult thing, and he makes it fun. He encourages people and he’s got humor. He’s got a great smile and he just makes you feel very successful. He makes sure that he gives you the encouragement.”
