Brian Startare: Soza Weight Loss March 19

I just returned home from Florida from a three day trip, and yes, I was a good boy while I was away. I ate my 5 meals a day. I continued to eat chicken, steak and fish. I didn’t have bread or wedding cake, or potatoes. And you want to know why? Ain’t nobody got time for that!

I’m feeling and looking better every day and I WANT MORE. While I was away, I learned how to order food out in a restaurant. It’s easy if you just ask the servers to help you out.
(Hint: Follow Soza’s guidelines while eating out, and get creative!)

Order double greens with your order. Drink water with a lime or lemon. Get sauces on the side and dip. And resist the urge to cheat.

Before I show you how I look today, let me show you what your plates and meals should look like!

Pretty interesting huh? It’s possible. You can do it.

Are you ready? This is March 19th. I’m down to 230lbs! That’s 38!

Brian Startare: Soza Weight Loss January 6th-February 9th

January 6th- February 9th
For this 30 day+ period, I concentrated on eating the right foods. I walked a few miles a day, usually around the block at home. I took the steps instead of the elevator every chance I got.

I was really determined to show and prove to myself that I could do it on my own before going out and asking for help. I decided I was going to be positive in every aspect of my life. My family, friends, my work, everywhere. Remember, your attitude determines your altitude!
Basically, I ate like a health nut. And you know what? It took me only two weeks to get used to it. That’s it. Here’s a sample of what I would typically have during any given day.


A juice made by using The Nutri Bullet. This machine is easy to use and fantastic. Go get one. Now!
Every morning I would make a juice consisting of any combination of spinach, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, bananas, apples, oranges, flax seed, almonds and sometime non-fat Greek yogurt.
Low calories, energy boosting, natural. Good stuff.

A salad. With as many vegetables as I could pack in there, with a can of tuna or 6 ounces of chicken.

Apples, bananas, celery sticks, beef jerky, fat free popcorn, fat free cottage cheese. No more than 2 or 3 of these per day.


Steak, Chicken, or fish. Sweet or baked potatoes, greens, and a salad.


Coffee, water, juice, Green tea.

That’s it folks. I cut out pizza, most dairy, pasta, bread, and butter. The only thing I really, really missed was the pizza and beer. I tracked my calories at www.myfitnesspal.com it was of great help. It kept me line and provided me with support and motivation. Use this site; it will be your best friend.
I arrived at the Soza clinic on Saturday morning February 9th, 2013 and ready for my next step on my journey. I weighed in at 248lbs. Motivated and ready for Phase II! Take a look.
