Steve and Missy Deer
June 7th marked the first anniversary of the day we placed our Business Pack order with the most wonderful health system on the planet, Qivana! Our experience has been FANTASTIC! As indicated by our photos, Qivana has made an incredible lifestyle improvement for both me and my wife, Missy.
I was introduced to the products by my family physician, Dr. Richard Mays, and it has been the best “prescription” he could have ever given me. I feel like my youth has been renewed! It is also great to hear all the complements in regard to our weight loss and to be able to share the Qivana story.
A year ago I truly was concerned, as my father passed away at a young age due to heart disease. I was 45 years old and had tried numerous programs, plans, and diets. But nothing even started to compare with the results I have experienced through Qivana.
I have lost 101 lbs to date and Missy has lost 85 lbs! We have had a dynamic positive change in our health; both of us are off of several medications and our blood work is returning to the normal range. I think of us as “Diamonds in the rough”. We’re just working our way through and helping people as we travel this exciting journey!
Losing so much has never felt so good! Just ask Pam Human, who in 11 months has lost 116 pounds and gone from a size 22 to a size 10 with the METABOLIQ® System. "I am smaller, stronger, and more active and energetic than I have ever been in my adult life. Losing this type of weight in less than a year is simply amazing to me," says Pam, who just finished cleaning out her closet, again!
Prior to her success with the METABOLIQ System, Pam described herself as always being overweight. “I had tried all the weight loss programs and products out there but never found anything that worked for me.” When her best friend, Diamond Marty Keefe, asked Pam to try and commit to the METABOLIQ System for 90 days, Pam reluctantly said yes. “I thought that this program would mean another failure for me,” she explains. “Marty and her husband, Joe, have done so much for me that I wanted to make this commitment to them.” Pam met with Marty, Joe, and long-time friend (Diamond IBO) Dr. Rick Mays and signed up as an IBO. “I know these people and have complete faith in them. I knew if they were involved with Qivana then it must be a good thing,” Pam says.
Unlike other diet programs and products, Pam quickly discovered that the METABOLIQ System is simple and straightforward. “METABOLIQ fits into my lifestyle. You don’t have to think about what to eat or do next and you can take the products with you anywhere you go,” she says. Pam started drinking the shakes twice a day for the first six weeks. Right from the start, Pam noticed that she no longer had the cravings or hunger she had always experienced. Even better, Pam felt energetic—she felt like exercising! So she started walking three miles three times a week and swimming. “I even entered into a 5K walk which is something I never thought I would do!”
To keep Pam’s weight loss a fun and exciting challenge, Marty established incentives for Pam to reach each weight loss goal. “When I reached 230 pounds, Marty gave me $500! At 200 pounds, she gave me a laptop, and when I reached 185 pounds, she took me to Aruba for a girls’ trip!” says Pam. “Once I reached my goal weight, Marty sent me to a plastic surgeon for a tummy tuck.”
Pam’s entire focus was on losing weight and being active, so she hadn’t really considered the business aspect of Qivana. “I soon discovered it was crazy to not be involved in the business because so many people were asking me about the METABOLIQ System,” she says. “Being an active business builder definitely inspires me to eat healthy and be active because I’m constantly telling my story to people, whether it’s at a Qivana business meeting or to a friend at work. I want to be a good example and I want to make my business partners proud,” she says.
When Pam was recently called on stage during Qivana’s Convention in Orlando by Qivana Founder Justin Banner, she was shocked. “I wanted to make sure that I gave credit where it was due—to Marty, Joe, Dr. Mays, and the METABOLIQ products. Everyone has been so supportive, I felt like I was winning an Oscar!” And for Pam, that winning feeling is just one of the many positive things she has gained—from losing weight.
I feel truly blessed being introduced to Qivana’s products. I was introduced in late October 2009 by Ms. Andrea Clemens and soon became an IBO. I weighed a whopping 251 pounds and was busting out of my size 38 waist line. My blood pressure and cholesterol were at a level of concern for the first time in my life. I tried different products without any success. The QORE product line had some great success stories which convinced me to embrace the product line with an open mind. I knew at this point that I needed to drop weight before I attempted any type of exercise program.
I made a conscious effort to begin eating healthier while I took the QORE Probiotics and Essentials. I cut out all carbonated beverages, increased my fruit and vegtable intake, and refused to eat after 7:30 pm. I immediately experienced success and reduced my waist line from a size 38 to a size 36. I remained apprehensive about attempting any type of exercise program until I reached my goal of 180 pounds. Each and every month my QORE products arrived and I continued to feel better and more importantly, lose weight.
By April 30, 2010 I fit perfectly into a size 34. I was fired up at this point and began adding holes to both belts as a reminder of how much weight I was dropping. By May 10, 2010 I had gone from 251 pounds to 180 pounds, a total loss of 71 pounds all because of the QORE product line! My sponsor shared that Qivana was introducing the METABOLIQ System that was specifically designed for weight loss and I decided to try this system in June. My experience with the shakes, boost and resist really enhanced the QORE products. I felt extremely satisfied and didn’t have any hunger issues throughout my day.
I began a 60-day exercise program with two younger colleagues. They were amazed that I was able to keep up with the intensity of the exercise program (I outlasted both of them). The exercise program depleted excessive calories which is where the METABOLIQ products came in. I would take a Boost 30 minutes prior to the workout and then drink a Shake after each and every workout ensuring that I replenished my body with the proper nutrients. I completed the 60 workout program and am pleased that I lost another 2 inches in my waistline.The weight loss never really sank in until my colleague took a picture of me on July 12, 2010. I had a prior snap shot taken on December 12, 2009 by the same colleague. He forwarded the old picture so I could compare the before and after. I was completely blown away by the transformation that took place in those seven months. I succeeded with determination, will power, and most importanly, the Qivana products, both the QORE and METABOLIQ.
My friends want to know how I can outlast guys 10 and 20 years younger than me with that type of exercise program. My response is always the same—Qivana. I am pleased to be at the same weight today that I weighed at 17 years old. The METABOLIQ product line was designed for weight loss, but I also love it for replenishing my body with the proper nutrients lost during an intense exercise program.
I used to think that I was fat in middle school and high school, but I really put the cherry on top in college—when I gained close to 100 pounds. Like every addiction there is a root to the cause…obviously food was the drug in this situation. I got so sick from being stressed (because of an underlying case of sleep apnea) and had to quit my college swim team. I didn’t even know what was wrong with me until long after I quit. You could say I went through a depressed period and really didn’t care what I did. I just went to the dining halls and took out my frustration on the food. It sounds kind of pathetic written down, but it’s the sad truth. Since I have started with Qivana though, I have taken a turn for the better.
I have done every sort of diet possible, but have never reached my ideal weight. My mom signed me up for weight watchers 5 times in high school.I would lose 5 or 10 pounds and give up every time. I wasn’t in it for me, I just wanted to make everyone happy. I wanted to be thin so bad just like my teammates and friends. I didn’t have any hope for losing the weight and I was just on a downward spiral and getting sicker every day. I swam over 20 hours a week in high school and the stress from school just made my condition worse. I was panicked because I could have a range of diseases, so it was trial and error for 4 years taking pills that didn’t work. I was gaining about 20 pounds a year due to all of these things and my poor eating choices didn’t help. Unfortunately eating made me forget about how exhausting it all was.
This made college a nightmare for me. I was only swimming for a month until I had to go to the emergency room because I couldn’t breathe. I had tonsillitis and my airway was smaller than a blueberry. The doctor said if I hadn’t of come in early, I probably would have had a stroke…at the age of 18 that’s the last thing I wanted to hear. My blood pressure was 170 over 140. My dream in high school was to be a college swimmer. That day I knew my dream was crushed, but I didn’t want to admit it, so every day I went to the sports clinic and got my blood pressure taken to see if I could swim that day. I did this for 4 months before I gave up and made myself tell my coach it was over for me. I was heartbroken. The endorphins, which flowed through my body from swimming went away and led me to be very unmotivated. In a nutshell, it took me a long time to understand that this was the beginning of a new phase of my life—one that could be dedicated to other goals. I ate my feelings away that year and saw myself blow up like a balloon. I needed to love myself because I knew I could do better. When I hit my sophomore year I started to understand this concept. Qivana came at a very good time for me. This time I was ready to give myself a chance at a better life. I was sick of disappointing myself.
Now I have a METABOLIQ Shake in the morning with blueberries or strawberries, which really get me going for the day. I eat less and want more healthy food. I quit drinking soda, snacking and high sugar foods. I go to the gym 4 times a week and get to bed by 11pm—which is very good since I used to go to sleep around 3am. Every time I have a craving I can fight it with my Resist tablets, which have been useful by giving me the strength to stop thinking about food. I have noticed that I don’t think about food as much and that it’s become less of a priority. I feel like it doesn’t control me anymore and I can handle my cravings. Every time I have a Boost in the morning I feel a little closer to my goal. This program has changed the way I look at my lifestyle and the way I portray food. Food is a need now and not a want. I still enjoy everything I eat, but now I know how to not overindulge.
Obviously it has not been easy changing all of my habits, but every day I try and make a new improvement. I really didn’t believe I could do this, but now I have lost over 50 pounds (I still have a ways to go), but now I know I’m ready. I have lost so much weight and am ready for the next goal. I am building confidence and the METABOLIQ System gives me that chance. My goal is to be healthy. I know I deserve to be happy and I am already on that path. I can’t wait to reach my goal weight and I believe I can accomplish anything. I see myself influencing other people to do the same and that’s a great feeling. I like being a role model, and by losing weight I can be, for all the people who never knew they had the strength to do it.
Qivana has transformed my life and given me my body back. I have lost 44 pounds and 2 pants sizes in 4 months. I am now back to the weight I was on my wedding day when I married my high school sweetheart 26 years ago.
My family struggles with weight loss and I was always told being heavy just runs in the family. Qivana had rebuffed that myth and given me not only weight loss, but I feel great. I have a goal to lose 6 more pounds by my 50th birthday.
My wife has lost the 12 lbs she has wanted to lose since turning 40 and our two teenage sons have benefited as well. Both start their day with a shake before classes at college and say they feel so much better. It helps having energy and feeling good throughout the day!
In addition, we have the opportunity to share a healthy lifestyle with us and the opportunity to change their lives financially. I am so thankful that Ernie & Michelle Lechner cared enough about me and my family to share the Qivana system with us.
I’m a 33 year old single father of a wonderful 8 year old son, professional networker and have spent most my life as an entrepreneur. About 3 months prior to finding the Qivana METABOLIQ program, I was working grueling 14 hour days in the time share industry.
Being on the road, I often didn't take the time to eat healthy. On top of this, I was having nerve pain in my right shoulder. It became so painful that I found myself taking Ibuprofen ever day to ease the pain.
I decided it was time to search for something to assist me in turning my health around. In February 2010 I was introduced to Qivana and the METABOLIQ System from my brother, Cameron. I listened and researched the company website, and said "this is exactly what i am looking for!" A program that handles eating in a simple, managed, non-hungry approach.
I made the commitment that day that I was going to give myself a 90-day challenge—use the products and start an exercise routine to speed it up. I was sick and tired of being sick and tired...plain and simple.
My 90-day challenge began Feb 16, 2010. After 90 days of staying committed and doing what I set to do, I found it had become a habit to manage my meals and exercise regularly.
I lost 23 lbs on the METABOLIQ program and my nerve pain was gone by day 90. I left time shares and started to follow my passions. I feel good about myself and have more confidence. Thank you Cameron for the introduction to Qivana!
I started the Qivana program in March of 2010. I was 260 lbs, had high blood pressure and severe acid reflux. By the end of June 2010 I was down to 198 lbs and my two health conditions had gone away. I am not working out, but I do dance about 3 hours a week. I have managed to maintain my weight ever since, and all my friends always ask how I lost so much weight so quickly. I tell them my story and they start the program too.
How can I begin to tell you how I've been transformed from a caterpillar in her chrysalis into the spectacular butterfly I am today? I once thought I'd never emerge to spread my wings and glide on a summer breeze, but I have now, and I'm enjoying every beautiful ray of sunshine!
You see, I was stuck inside a body that was getting sicker every day. As a RN Case Manager in Disease Management, I was helping my patients with their diseases but wasn't managing my own very well!
I ate the wrong foods and way too much and often ate late at night. As a result, I began putting on weight, a lot of it! I was aware I was putting on weight but felt helpless to do anything about it. I had been on many diets in my younger years and was never able to lose much weight or keep it off, so I never wanted to diet again. I began accepting my weight. After all, I was 63. My metabolism had slowed down, and I hated to exercise, so I knew I wasn't doing anything to improve it. click to read more
Erwin lost 39 pounds and four inches off his waist. His body fat went from 18% to 11.5%. He now has a 3 ½ - 4 inch gap in the waist of his jeans and had to put 5 new notches in his belt.
"I will be 40 years old a week before the regional event and I want to thank Qivana and Dr. Layman for giving me a great 40th birthday gift...the energy and the body of a 25 year old!"
WOW! The system does everything it says it will. My muscle mass went up along with my bone density. My weight, metabolic age & visceral fat all went down. Can you imagine if I did a little more exercise with this?
My husband and I joined Qivana on the very first day. I had wonderful results with just the QORE system. I had more energy, less headaches and surprisingly started to lose weight. Now my husband, Dr. John Podlaski, had written a book about natural health and his focus was in nutrition. All along we knew that protein was very important, especially in the morning. I never could lose weight from the protein shakes that he had me on. These weren't junky shakes either, they were by some very well known nutrition companies.
After we learned about the METABOLIQ system at the Jacksonville seminar in January we went home and took a look at the shakes that we had. All of them had no more than 17 grams of protein. I started on the METABOLIQ system in late February and have now lost a total of 20 pounds. My starting weight was 153 and I am now 133.
I love all the products and hope that there are more are to come. I can't wait! Since I now wear a size 4 and previously wore a size 8, I could really use the prize money to buy a new wardrobe!
I am an Independent Business Owner with Qivana. I gave one of my mother's friends a five day sample of the QORE Essentials to try. I asked that she call me back after the five days to tell me how she was feeling. On the sixth day she called and asked if she could come over right away and pick up a month's supply of the QORE System. Since I had ordered extra, I told her yes. She was at my door 10 minutes later.
When I asked her what she had experienced she said she just felt so much better. She explained that she had material sitting in a corner for months and this week she had made drapes with it! This is a woman that is in her 70's and she was so excited about the product that she wanted to keep taking it because she felt so much better. It made me feel proud to be a Qivana IBO!
I just wanted to give a quick experience regarding the QORE Essentials. I have been a napper as long as I can remember because I am up very early in the morning. I have now found that I require much less sleep...I have only had 2 naps since I have been on Qivana's QORE products and I am staying up much later at night. I feel like I am sleeping much better and more peacefully. I can't wait to get on the Detox next month. Thank you!
Hello, my name is Chuck Jones and I live in the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee. Our diets are not the best here, so we are always looking for good supplements. QORE Essentials is awesome! I play a lot of competitive golf and just recently returned from a 5-day trip of 162 holes of golf. I never got physically tired, but more importantly I was never mentally fatigued and that is huge in this sport.
I never felt a huge energy boost, but I realized after 72 holes of golf that I was not fatigued in the least! While the other guys were dragging, I felt fresh and I can only attribute this to the Essentials. I am excited about Qivana’s future products! Keep up the great work!
Interestingly enough, I have noticed an improvement in my vitality and energy levels, but more importantly to me, my ‘spirit.' When I use Qivana's QORE products regularly, I am more cheery, flowery and giggly.
On occassion, I have stopped taking them for a few days, just to see what would happen, and I am back to my ‘Eyore’ self again.
I have had very bad gastrointestinal problems / IBS for almost 6 years. I visited several doctors who ran tests, but I never received an answer or solution and was starting to worry.
I had heard about probiotics before, but never had the chance to try them. After taking Qivana's Probiotics for just 3 weeks I noticed my problems were starting to get a lot better. I was able to eat food without being in pain for hours (sometimes even days)!
The Essentials help me from wanting to nap throughout the day and at night I am able to get much better sleep.
Thank you for all you are doing!
I have really been enjoying my QORE Essentials. Not only does this product have a pleasant flavor, but have felt a great difference in my daily life during the last 25 days of using QORE Essentials. I no longer feel the afternoon slump and can work straight through the day and into the evening whether it is Qivana business, real estate, house or yard work. No more afternoon naps! And it is a calm, consistent energy, not like sugar or caffeine induced energy. It would have been nice to have this product a long time ago. Thanks Qivana!
