Meet Kalan And Learn About His Weight Loss Experience With CONTRAVE
Published by CONTRAVE Care Team on
Patient Name: Kalan S.
Patient Age: 33
My Story: When I was feeling stressed out, or just low, I found food to be extremely comforting. If I felt that someone was upset with me or treated me poorly, food became my comfort. I always used to say, “food is nice to me" and my snack of choice was sugary snacks and treats like Snickers bars or cookies. When times got tough, I would gain a lot of weight pretty quickly and would find it difficult to stop myself from eating. I would eat large portions because I always felt like I was starving. I kept seeing the number on the scale increase and was giving up hope.
I consider myself lucky to have such an incredible relationship with my amazing doctor who finally helped me get control of my weight. Though it was hard to initially ask for help, it turned out to be the best thing I could’ve done for myself. My doctor has always been so encouraging and optimistic about my weight loss journey. After trying a couple of other medications, she recommended CONTRAVE. At first, I was skeptical that this drug was going to be different, but I noticed I no longer snacked all day pretty quickly after starting CONTRAVE.
Thanks to CONTRAVE and a good diet and exercise regimen, I am proud to say I'm more than halfway to my goal weight! My weight loss has inspired me to continue to keep a healthier daily routine by making sure I include a decent amount of exercise and continue to make healthier food choices like adding more veggies to my diet. I don't restrict myself, but I do realize I'm not eating nearly as much as I was before.
I am so thankful to have the relationship I do with my doctor and that she recommended CONTRAVE. CONTRAVE has truly made a difference in my weight-loss journey.
