“I feel so thankful and blessed to have met Dr. Bonilla and his very supportive staff. They have given me my life back.
I walked into their office in July 2007 feeling the lowest physically/mentally I have ever been in my life. Carol, Dr. Bonilla’s wife greeted me. I shared with her how I had been unsuccessful with several weight-loss centers in Tampa. Even though I was diligent in following their programs, the weight remained. I shared with Carol how tired and exhausted I was all the time. And how I gained my weight so quickly over the past several years. She suggested I see an Endocrinologist first to rule out any thyroid issues before I even begin a program with them.
Why was this overlooked by the other centers? Well, my thyroid was underactive and with the proper medication, I was feeling like a new person in no time.
Dr. Bonilla’s weight loss program was very simple. The foods provided with the program that I chose were very tasty and satisfying. From the protein shakes, bars and my favorite “Nacho Cheese Pasta” , the weight melted off. I bonded each night with my pasta and Carol swore the whites of my eyes were going to turn yellow with all that pasta I was eating! I was a very “happy camper” with my results and that spark in my eyes began to return.
The encouragement of Dr. Bonilla was supportive and rewarding. Other centers here in Tampa, you rarely saw the doctor. Dr. Bonilla saw me each week. His personal weekly interaction helped me to achieve my goal in no time.
In 22 weeks I lost 58.8 pounds. I went from a BMI (body mass index) of 31.3 (obese) to a 23 BMI (now in a healthy range). My % fat went from 45.7% to 32.2% (normal range 23-34%). My cholesterol levels are now all normal. How good is that?
I am one of the many success stories here at this weight loss center. My gratitude to Dr. Bonilla, and his wife Carol, is immense. The rest of the staff has gained my respect and humble admiration forever.”
