NewsRadio WRVA Jeff Katz Weight Loss RVA Interview


Weight Loss Program as heard on WRVA Newsradio

Jeff Katz:

Right here, on News Radio WRVA.

Jeff Katz:

So couple of months back, I made a decision that I wanted to try and get back into some semblance of shape. You remember, I mean, it's two years ago now I fell at the Radio Factory, screwed up my back, like six ways to Sunday. And so I haven't been able to exercise and the weight comes on and comes on and comes on. So I said, "I got to drop some pounds." Well, a lot of programs out there, a lot of people who can tell you, "Oh yeah, do this, do that. I'll do this. I'll do that." Here's what I can tell you. I can tell you that I have been working with Dr. Bryant Snyder. Remember, what did I say? I said, I would only do a program under the supervision of a doctor. So I've been working with Dr. Bryant Snyder, and his team, at Weight Loss RV.

Jeff Katz:

I went into it and said, "You know what, let me drop 10 pounds." And then I dropped the 10 pounds and 11 and 12. Well, I've dropped 18 pounds and I've moved into the maintenance phase. It has been, I don't want to use the word easy, because it's not the right word. I can just say it hasn't been difficult. I think that's a better way of describing it. No calories, no magic potions, just this sort of lifestyle change. And so many people have reached out to me. I thought, "You know what? I want to get Dr. Snyder in on this." And his wife, Jenneane is an amazing woman as well. She's a big part of this. There are other staff members over there, but I'm happy to say that they're both joining us this afternoon. Good afternoon, my friends.

Dr. Byrant Snyder:

Hey Jeff. How you doing?

Jenneane Snyder:

Hi Jeff. Thanks for having us.

Jeff Katz:

Oh, the pleasure is mine. Let me start with Jenneane. No offense, Doc.

Dr. Byrant Snyder:

No worries.

Jeff Katz:

But let me start with Jenneane. This program was an amazing program and it's something that you and Dr. Snyder decided to offer because you had both done it, right?

Jenneane Snyder:

Correct. Yes. So it was very important to us, before we offered out a program to our existing patients as well as the community that we tried it ourselves, that we knew that it was something that was doable, something that made sense, and that we would get results also, so that we were certain that our patients would get results. And we did, we got amazing results. I lost 25 pounds in the first seven weeks. Bryant lost 20. We felt great. Sleeping better. It really changed a lot of things. Sometimes the weight loss is the byproduct of eating healthy and just feeling better in general.

Jeff Katz:

Well, now that's the thing. You talk about feeling better in general. Let me ask Dr. Snyder to weigh in on that.

Dr. Byrant Snyder:

Yes.

Jeff Katz:

It's not just the weight loss, right? There's just this sort of like resetting your body and clicking your mind back into gear.

Dr. Byrant Snyder:

Yeah. That's basically what it is. Here at Weight Loss RVA it's a doctor developed, doctor supervised, metabolic weight loss program that focuses on the science of metabolism, really. It's not a lot of exercise that is needed. There's no prepackaged meal plans. You don't really count points or calories. It's basically resetting your metabolism and you can lose weight and keep it off. And our patients typically lose anywhere from 20 to 40 pounds in 60 days or so.

Jeff Katz:

Wow. You're talking about keeping it off because I'm in that maintenance phase. That's the thing that's always scared me.

Dr. Byrant Snyder:

Yes.

Jeff Katz:

And let's face it, that's the horror story for most people. They do some sort of a, I hate this word, but I'll use it, they do some sort of a diet. They lose a bunch of weight. And then the next time you see them, it's like, "Wow, you gained all of that plus an extra 20."

Jenneane Snyder:

The difference between our program, Jeff, and some of the programs our patients have tried prior to coming to us and what they've told us is the biggest difference that has made them successful in our program as opposed to others, is the fact that we have certified health coaches that help walk them through the program while they're with us. You're with us for 90 days, but it's not over in 90 days. We have patients that want to lose a significant amount of weight. We wouldn't expect that to come off in that period of time. So what we do during the time that you're with us is our certified health coaches work with you every step of the way and help prepare you for that time when you've reached your weight loss goal and give you strategy so that you do not gain the weight back.

Jenneane Snyder:

As you know, if you do what you've always done you're going to get what you've always gotten, and that's why the 90 days with us produces a lifestyle change, as opposed to what you said, which was a diet, which there always seems to be an end to a diet. For us, we want to teach people, give them an education, so they can carry us on for the rest of their life. I mean, you have to eat for the rest of your life. So let's do it in a way that works to your benefit rather than to your detriment. And that's our biggest goal with our patients.

Jeff Katz:

One of the things that I took away from this, and I want to remind everybody, Dr. Bryant Snyder is joining us, Jenneane Snyder joining us from Weight Loss RVA. This is a program that I've done and I continue to do, because I'm in the maintenance phase now. We're with you, as you said, for 90 days. People are actively losing weight. Some people are going to stick around longer. They're going to say, "Hey, I want another 90 days. I want to lose X number of pounds more."

Jenneane Snyder:

Yes.

Jeff Katz:

But it is moving into that maintenance phase where it's always the challenge. And I can remember talking actually with both of you and one of the health coaches over there and saying, "Well, Thanksgiving's coming up and Christmas and New Years." And the response was, "Yeah, you should enjoy those days." I mean, I had never heard anything like that from anybody involved in weight management, ever.

Jenneane Snyder:

Well, that is exactly right. And I think that for anything that there are absolute deal breakers, that's not something that's for us. For us, like I said, the biggest thing is that people want to lose weight and feel better because they want to be happy. And if you're constantly regulating yourself and you're constantly taking things away, then we're not going to be happy. So when we were talking to people before Thanksgiving, they would say, "Well, what about Thanksgiving?" And we would say, "Well, you mean the one meal out of the 50 some meals you're going to be eating in the month? What you do at Thanksgiving is you enjoy that food and you enjoy your friends and your family. And the next day you hop right back on."

Jeff Katz:

Yeah.

Jenneane Snyder:

This program is forgiving. It's about eating well and putting your body in a position so that you can have those meals and enjoy yourself, go out for birthdays, enjoy those celebrations, knowing that what you're doing prior, and what you do after that, is really what's most important.

Jeff Katz:

Yeah. Well, you're absolutely spot on, Jenneane. I appreciate that insight. Dr. Snyder, let me ask you.

Dr. Byrant Snyder:

Yes.

Jeff Katz:

We only have a couple of seconds left.

Dr. Byrant Snyder:

Sure.

Jeff Katz:

I've been encouraging people to try the program. I provide the phone number, 804-455-9070, all the time. What would you to say to somebody who's listening who maybe has heard about my little adventure so far, 18 pounds, and not just the losing the weight, but keeping it off. Should they or should they not be, be reaching out to you or they just dive back into that stack of diet plans they have?

Dr. Byrant Snyder:

No, they can absolutely come see us. It's really simple to do so. We do free consultations. All you got to do is go to weightlossrva.com, weightlossrva.com.

Jeff Katz:

Oh.

Dr. Byrant Snyder:

Yeah, absolutely. And if they can't do that, again, go to weightlossRVA, and register. You can do a free consultation, no obligation.

Jeff Katz:

I love it. Well, listen, guys, I appreciate everything that you're doing for everybody else. I certainly appreciate what you're doing for me. I'm very, very happy to be part of the team in some way. And I'll send some more people hopefully to come out to this live event tomorrow. I thank you so much for being here.

Dr. Byrant Snyder:

Thank you, Jeff.

Jenneane Snyder:

Thank you, Jeff. You're doing a great job. Keep it up.

Dr. Byrant Snyder:

Happy New Year to you.

Jeff Katz:

Thank you so much. That's Dr. Bryant Snyder, Jenneane Snyder, Weight Loss RVA. Look, I don't normally do stuff like that, but I'm just telling you. When I went to the Christmas party here in the neighborhood, a month ago, six weeks ago, whatever it was. Had not seen people in a year. I mean, honestly, these are people I had not seen in a year. Every single person came up to me and said, "Wow, you've lost a lot of weight." Other people continued, because they happened to listen to the program, and said, "Man, we heard you talking about it. We didn't know. We didn't see you. Now that we've seen you, you've lost a lot of weight." So I know the struggle. The struggle is real. I'm here to tell you, Dr. Snyder and his team at Weight Loss RVA can really honestly help you. Why don't you call them? 804-455-9070 or check them out online, weightlossrva.com. It is 5:45 Jeff Katz, News Radio WRVA.
