A key component in achieving your personal best is proper nutrition. Too many times, demands in our personal and professional lives make eating nutritionally, well-balanced meals difficult. We often find ourselves rushing between responsibilities looking to grab a bite to eat, which often leads to unhealthy choices at a donut shop or fast-food drive-thru. These high calorie, high carb meals ultimately leave individuals feeling rundown and tired.
Business leaders understand the correlation between healthy employees and work productivity. According to a 2015 survey Exploring the Value Proposition for Workplace Health, more than 500 business leaders cited productivity and performance as the top two business priorities influenced by health.
It is safe to say I have a white-collar job. Even though I'm not performing hard manual labor or dealing with the elements, my work is still demanding in its own right. As a corporate trainer and motivational speaker, my job requires me to be constantly upbeat and energetic. I gave my all to my participants, and felt drained afterwards. I was approaching my mid-40s and I was overweight and exhausted. When I came home, all my toddler daughter wanted to do was run around and climb over daddy, and have me pick her up and spin her around. All daddy wanted to do was crash on the couch.
I was introduced to a nutrition program in the summer of 2015 but I was skeptical. As my wife can attest, I was always a picky eater. I was concerned I wouldn't like the food on the program, feel full, or experience the same results as my friend who initially introduced me to the program. In October 2015, I finally took my friend's advice. The results were amazing. When I started the program, I was 232 pounds. My goal was to get down to 210. I didn't reach my goal.
I CRUSHED IT.
If getting below 200 pounds for the first time in over 15 years wasn't enough, I ended up being able to make my high school wrestling weight of 189. Seriously.
Diets can help you lose weight, but nutritional programs help you keep it off. Not only did I release over 45 pounds, I was able to maintain my new weight. I feel healthier, more energized, and able to tackle the world.
When I started my training career in April 2000, I was excited about helping people achieve their goals through education and motivation. Now, I have been fortunate to share my nutritional journey with others to help them achieve their fitness goals as well.
