Ok, if you are looking for someone who is down, tired of life, and constantly complains about everything, you should read a different blog. I have a very positive outlook on future and feel great about where I am right now.
Hereís the low-down on me! I am 46 years old, been happily married for 18 years and have two beautiful daughters. For 15 years I had been taking statins (canít mention the brand name) to control my cholesterol. That worked fine, except I hated the side effects, which included joint pains, chronic fatigue, bad mood, etc. I was a miserable person to be around, and it was taking a toll on my family. I hated the way I felt all the time! I knew I needed to work out to be healthier, but by the end of a busy work day I had no energy left to do anything.
My wife who is very health conscious has done her best to keep junk food out of the house and make sure we all ate healthy. We hardly ate any processed food, red meat, or white bread. Our diet was low in sugar and salt, no soft drinks; high in fruits and vegetables Ö you get the picture? Hereís the bummer! IT DIDNíT HELP.
I finally got sick and tired of being sick and tired. Talked to a friend of mine who is a wellness coach, did some research, and came to find out that unless I feed my body the nutrition that it needs at the cellular level, I am just spinning my wheels in the race to get healthy. I started on the products he suggested (again, canít mention the brand) started drinking plenty of water and herbal tea, I snack in between meals, and take natural supplements. The outcome? No more joint or other pains, no more statins (with my doctorís blessing), no more FATIGUE Ö AND lost 25 lbs. of fat, BEFORE I did any workout. That was July of 2012 and I have not gained a single pound since.
So now, I have the energy I need to work out, spend time with my wife and kids without being exhausted or grumpy! In a sense my kids got their father back :)
Imagine what you could do with your skills and talents if you had more energy! I want to dedicate my life to helping others turn their lives around.
