Clean Eatz is committed to helping people make the transition into eating clean, including one man who knew it was time to make his health a top priority.
Losing 55 pounds in four months, John Dickson of Lancaster credits that to Clean Eatz helping transform his diet, plus commitment, and daily walks.
"This was definitely a life saver for me," Dickson said.
Back in August Dickson a customer of Clean Eatz, realized it was time to make a change.
From unhealthy meals, to late night snacking -- he knew he needed to adapt to a healthier lifestyle.
Healthier food, portion control knowing how many calories he was taking in and not over eating -- helped him drop pounds quicker than he imagined.
"Alright I can do this, the food is enjoyable it's tasty... I could feel my body cleaning out all of the junk food I was used to eating every day," explained Dickson.
That's what makes Clean Eatz unique.
