John Cooke

John Cooke dropped from a 46" waist to a 42" waist

I started using Cho-Yung in July 2010, when after I underwent a medical review at my GPs surgery was told I was borderline type 2 Diabetic. My doctor said I needed to lose weight urgently.

A friend of mine lost his sight to diabetes. This was just the kick I needed to get my health under control.

When I first started using Cho-Yung I weighed 20 ½ stone and wore a size 46 waist trouser. I had undergone a total knee replacement which meant that I was unable to be as active as I normally was.

I also worked away from home during the working week for some years and it was really difficult to maintain a good diet living out of a suitcase. During that time, I was always feeling lethargic and breathing was difficult when walking any distance or uphill. I was also unable to enjoy activities with my grandchildren.

With the doctor's warning in my mind, I first heard about Cho-Yung in a Daily Telegraph article and decided to try it out. I noticed a difference within the first 4-5 days of using it. I also have a healthy diet now and my wife ensures I eat correctly. I now play golf 2-3 times a week.

I currently weigh 18 stone and wear a size 42 waist trouser. My blood results and sugars are much improved as is my blood pressure. I'm no longer at risk of Type 2 Diabetes. I feel as if I can do anything, and I am less breathless when walking and have more energy. My friends and family have also noticed a difference in me, saying I look much healthier and my clothes fit better – I had to put extra holes in my belts! I still use Cho-Yung, drinking one bag a day to help maintain my weight loss and as a pick me up. I will continue to use it to maintain my weight and try to reduce my weight further.
