Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body? * After 2 rounds of P90X, 1 round of INSANITY, and 1 round of P90X2, I was feeling pretty good about myself.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey? * After caring for my wife, Debbie, who has Early-Onset Alzheimer's, 24/7 for five years, I was dangerously close to crashing in all parts of my life. I had just turned 50 and knew things had to change. If you're not quite sure what Alzheimer's is, it's more than just forgetting things. Alzheimer's is "a decent, filled with fear and rage, into the hell of confusion and the total loss of identity as one witnesses the disease take apart their mind piece by piece." The decent is equally as traumatic for the primary caregiver as well. Along with caregiving duties, Debbie also relied on me as her security blanket during the initial stages, then as her lightening rod during the middle and later stages.
In addition to Alzheimer's, my "perfect storm" included the collapse of the housing market, and subsequent recession which decimated my real estate business. Needless to say, I wasn't in a good place mentally, physically, or financially!
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge? * I've come a long with my nutrition education, but still had a few changes to make. The Ultimate Reset helped me learn more about how my body responds to food, and offered me the opportunity to try new recipes I otherwise would not have tried. I found a bunch of "keeper" recipes, and there were only a couple that I really did not care for.
Why did you choose this particular program? * I did the Ultimate Reset to learn more about my body and nutrition so I can provide better value to my customers. I posted each day in my Facebook Album https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.3562891705956.2139222.1082757006&type=1&l=669301a8dd
Even though my numbers were good to start with, I still saw improvement in all my lab results.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose? * I the design of the Ultimate Reset, and the comprehensive web site and Facebook page.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of? * 11 pounds lost.
Cholesterol 167 to 117
Triglycerides 96 to 59
HDL 37 to 45
LDL 111 to 63
Blood sugar 95 to 90
pH 5.5 to 7
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program? * TUR made me move closer to a mostly plant based diet. I continue to drink a gallon of distilled water with Himalayan salt, and continue the Alkanalize and Optimize.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable? I actually did this on my own! The Reset will be my feature Challenge Group for October 2012.
How did a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program (such as Shakeology® or Beachbody Ultimate Reset®) support your transformation? What are the greatest benefits you gained? Did you see benefits to your energy, sleep, mood/mental clarity, digestion/regularity? I was surprised TUR didn't recommend including Shakeology, though I did drink the vegan as snacks. Helped a lot with hunger.
