It all happened on Trevor’s birthday. He took his family for a cave excursion at a state park near Texas. When he saw the cave’s narrow entrance, he immediately grew nervous.
He struggled hard but eventually made it through. From the corner of his eyes, he saw the judgement and side-eyes that came during his entry. He was already having a bad feeling about this trip and just when they were done exploring, it dawned on him.
The only exit was the same entrance he used.
Attempting to exit the cave, Trevor started feeling uneasy again. At first people laughed at how silly he looked but when he took too long, they began worrying.
That was when Trevor got stuck at the exit!
Somehow in a chaotic time like this, the entrance felt like it was shrinking and shrinking. Embarrassed, he tried with all his might to wiggle his way out but the protruding sides of his bulging belly and butt wouldn’t budge.
Angry tourists trapped inside had to help push him out. It took 2 hours altogether with the help of a rescue team to ‘free’ him.
The long wait quickly enraged the crowd and they started yelling derogatory remarks at him. Some even called him ‘a waste of space’ for disrupting their lives.
“I had never felt so much guilt, shame, and embarrassment.”
“I was never such a ‘giant’ in my life. Not until my girlfriend left our two kids with me many years ago.”
“Being a teen dad was tough. Food has been my emotional anchor. Stress eating is the only thing that helped me cope with my job and family.” – Trevor
The public humiliation was the last straw for Trevor. On top of that, he wants to be the best example to his two children. He knew then he must start losing some pounds.
It started with trying all sorts of diets. From Paleo, Keto, Jenny Craig, Nutrisystem, Atkins, Weight Watchers to supplements endorsed by nutritionists. Ineffective, he signed up for gym classes, HIIT sessions, CrossFit, and Pilates.
But nothing worked!
He even considered gastric bypass surgery, but he simply could not afford.
“No matter how hard I try I’m still just gaining more and more pounds.” – Trevor
Empty and lost, depression took over Trevor’s life. Anything he eats, he would force himself to throw up out of guilt.
One evening while he was on his way back from work, he suddenly felt dizzy and collapsed in the subway.
Trevor was rushed to the hospital and was diagnosed with bulimia. The harmful cycle of binging and purging was damaging his body, resulting in extremely low blood pressure and a weakened heart.
As he was discharged, he was approached by Dr. Paige, a bariatrician. Knowing his condition, Dr. Paige handed him a box.
It read ‘Nuyero™’.
“Nuyero™ is the result of 5 years of research by my team and I.”
“We realized our patients have trouble shedding the pounds effectively, so we designed Nuyero™ to be reliable and convenient.”
“The idea behind Nuyero™ is simple.”
“Stick it on whichever body part that needs downsizing and the natural herbs infused in it will work its magic. Burning stubborn fats by speeding up body metabolism and supressing appetite.”
“All with zero effort required.” – Dr. Paige
Trevor thought it was too good to be true, but he knew he must grab any opportunity and tried it.
Incredibly, the pounds started to shed!
In 1 week, he lost close to 25 lbs. Within a month, almost 87 lbs were gone. 2 months later, Trevor managed to lose a total of 179 lbs!
Recalling how far he had come, and the humiliations endured, he could not help but burst in tears of joy.
With his newfound confidence, he decided to build a community for teen dads like him.
“When I was younger, I didn’t know any better.”
“I gave in to emotional eating from all the pressure trying to support my family by myself.”
“Nobody was there for me.”
“There’s a misconception that teen dads ‘asked for it’ and don’t need any help. Now with this community, teen dads will not go overlooked.”
“They can now be equipped with the right knowledge and never need to fear being alone as I was.” – Trevor
Now a non-profit organization, Trevor’s actions has helped over 325 teen dads to date.
Trevor’s inspiring journey is one of the many success stories of Nuyero™. If you’re struggling with the excess pounds or know anyone who is…
