Weight Loss

With the help of Aladdin's Eatery!

It is not everyday that you meet a customer like June Marcum. June has been a loyal Aladdin's Eatery customer for many years. Originally she was a patron at the Squirrel Hill location. From her first visit she claims "She fell in-love with the menu immediately". In 2002 June moved to the North Hills and saw the sign for our Mc Knight road location. Strangely enough, she stumbled upon us on opening day, at that location. June has been a big supporter ever since. 

June is one of our customers that is in the store so often that all of the servers and managers know her by name. June and I had talked nutrition and exercise from time to time as she came in. However it wasn't until I was able to sit down with her one on one, that I learned the sheer magnitude of how she was able to change her life. 

June began her weight loss journey 3 1/2 years ago. Through the help of a personal trainer, Lou Martin of "The Workout Place" and strict nutrition June was able to drop 158 POUNDS! June's trainer believed in the same style of nutrition that we offer here at Aladdin's Eatery. In fact June turned her trainer on to our restaurant and in turn Lou now refers her clients to us as well. June is so dedicated to her journey of not only losing the weight but maintaining a healthy lifestyle, that she runs 2.5 miles to the restaurant sits down has a meal, and then runs 2.5 miles home.

Listening to June's story brought tears to my eyes. We at Aladdin's Eatery care deeply about our customers and believe it is an honor to play a role in helping them improve their eating habits, and in-turn their lives. Some of June's favorite foods at Aladdin's Eatery are the Hummus, Shwarma Salad and the grilled Lamb. She stated that our food is "A good balance of protein and Vegetables, and I do not eat out anywhere else".

Please share with us your personal triumphs over weight.
