(NaturalNews) Six-foot one-inch tall Kerry Hoffman used to weigh 343 pounds, have diabetes and frequently indulge in processed, unhealthy foods (1). "I ate anything that tasted good -- wings, pizza, stuffed burgers, tons of sweets and dessert," said Hoffman, whose father passed away from liver disease. Not long after his father's death came the birth of his daughter. These two life events served as his breaking point, urging him to become healthy.

Today, the 32-year-old man has shed 154 pounds, and he currently weighs 189 pounds. He's no stranger to triathlons and cycling, and is used to people coming up to him asking for his weight loss and health advice.

More important than his participation in fitness events is the fact that his health has improved significantly. He recalls visiting his doctor and hearing him announce, "You have officially cured yourself of diabetes." (1) Furthermore, Hoffman was also taken off other medications for cholesterol and blood pressure.

Eating better to achieve weight loss goals

Hoffman explains that, in addition to incorporating fitness into his daily routine, he began eliminating junk food from his diet, which he still avoids today. "I eat mainly whole foods. I stay away from processed stuff as much as possible," he said. "I never ate vegetables or salad before, and now two helpings of salad with homemade dressing is a staple every evening, as well as a fresh veggie." (1)

Losing weight, as most are aware, is beneficial for overall health. Not only can losing excess pounds provide relief for the body's joints and increased energy, but studies show that weight loss achieved at any age also has long-term cardiovascular benefits (2), suggesting that it's possible for people to improve health no matter their age.

Others also prove that fresh fruits and vegetables are key to weight loss

Others like Hoffman have also been successful in the weight loss department, attributing their changes to better fitness and dietary habits.

For example, Justin Willoughby lost over 550 pounds in part due to giving up high-sugar foods and processed meats and, instead, enjoying natural foods and plenty of fruits and vegetables (3).

There's also Luis Melendez, who lost 120 pounds and no longer needs to be on certain medications, because he turned to a raw food diet (4).

Jennifer Lilley is yet another weight loss success story who says her ability to lose, and keep off the 70 pounds she lost, is in large part because of the fact that she includes plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables and superfoods in her diet (5).
