In the fall of 2013, PictureWellness CEO and President, Maurice Saliba, began a journey with a group of 139 State of Tennessee employees to learn about diabetes prevention.  Following the CDC’s Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) after 16 weeks, 28% of those individuals had lost 5% of their total body weight.  To put it in perspective, these individuals lost a total of 1199 pounds in 16 weeks.  The DPP is designed to help pre-diabetics make changes in their daily routines.  Mr. Saliba simplifies the ways in which participants monitor their food intake and how they look at physical activity.  Join that with his passion for wellness and you have a healthy recipe for serious lifestyle change.   

 

“I am writing to express my gratitude to TDEC (Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation) for allowing the Diabetes Prevention Program to take place and allowing us to participate…I must say that the Coach Maurice Saliba is such an inspiration and encourager in this life transforming experience…I am most happy to report that I have lost over 26 pounds and Maurice gave us some guidelines for success that are sustainable.  This is a common sense program that embodies the 4 “pillars” of successful healthy living.  The four components are adequate sleep, water, food intake and exercise…I really believe that I am in a very beneficial life-style change that is easy to maintain and my recent wellness assessment results bear this out with blood pressure numbers somewhat 30 points less than have ever been…Of course there are other components of a healthy life such as the mental, and spiritual, but for the physical part this has been great.   This is one big thank you I will throw to TDEC and encourage everyone wanting to make a positive change in their bodies to consider.” – Robert (State of Tennessee Employee)


With over 30 years’ experience, Mr. Saliba continues to demonstrate great success, as evidenced by the numerous letters of recognition he has received from individuals such as Phil Brown with Mohawk Industries, former Congressman Zach Wamp, Tennessee State Representative Kevin Brooks, as well as many others.  HealthCare 21 chose Maurice Saliba and PictureWellness, to deliver the DPP program to the State of Tennessee, because he delivers results.


Diabetes Prevention Program Success Story: By Robert Powell


I am writing to express my gratitude to  TDEC for allowing the Diabetes Prevention Program to take place and allowing us to participate.  The other participants and I are into our 11th week of the program and I must say that the Coach Maurice Saliba is such an inspiration and encourager in this life transforming experience. I entered the program marginally qualified as my blood sugar level was barely such that I was allow to enter the program, however they allowed me to participate anyway. I was somewhat over weight, but not excessively so, but had some eating habits that for some time I had been desiring to change, but just wasn’t sure how to make lasting changes. That is when I entered the program.  I am most happy to report that I have lost over 26 pounds and Maurice gave us some guidelines for success that are sustainable. This is a common sense program that embodies the four “pillars” of successful healthy living. The four components are adequate sleep, water, food intake and exercise.

There are other break downs that make this a very doable program and with regular water intake and snacks at the right intervals I am never hungry. I feel great and am able to get around much better and enjoy all the physical activity I am involved with  such as gardening, working out with weights, building, swimming, walking/hiking and others, etc. I really believe that I am in a very beneficial life-style change that is easy to maintain and my recent wellness assessment results bear this out with blood pressure numbers somewhat 30 points less than have ever been. Of course there are other components of a healthy life such as the mental, and spiritual, but for the physical part this has been great. This is one big thank you I will throw to TDEC and encourage everyone wanting to make a positive change in their bodies to consider.
