A weight loss journey!

Weight loss following a stag!

It was on a good friend’s stag last year in Westport when the reality hit home that the scales were going the wrong way and some weight loss was needed. We had cycled from Westport to Achill on the new Greenway path.  The craic was had and we had stopped off for a swim in one of the nearby beaches for a dip.

The month before the stag party and when Liverpool nearly won the league – May 2014

I was helping one of the other lads locate his wedding ring that he had lost in the sea. Long story! Standing in the sea, I could see that I had a put on a few lbs and  it was time to do  something about it.

I returned home and jumped on the scales to see that I was touching 15 stone. Alarm bells began to go off. I decided then to make a conscious effort to get down to a more manageable weight. In our business, a benefit is that we have access to doctors, nutritionists, personal trainers etc. So, I started to really take this product seriously and become a product of the product and listening to the advice of these people.

I had been taking Juice Plus+ premium and Juice Plus+ Complete since April 2013 but not taking it correctly in that my nutrition was not right. My diet wasn’t very bad but I realised that in order to make it work, I had to change a few things.

One simple change or a few!

A few of the simple changes that I have incorporated is to reduce my sugar intake, chocolate (a former favourite), crisps, bread and to drink more water.

Another simple change, I have incorporated is to never go a day without exercise. I am in college two days per week so I take the bus on these days into town but incorporate a walk during the day. The days when I am not in college, you will see me cycling – dodging cars on the return journey to Lucan and the city centre,

I don’t believe that any of the above are drastic changes . These are things that we can incorporate into our daily lives. Not only have I taken on board what the doctors have said but you also find you learn alot along the way by listening to these people. They do have the qualifications after all!

Happily now on 19th June, I am 13 stone 12 lbs  stone and the scales are going the right way. I am thankful to Juice Plus+ for that and will not be going the opposite way again.

Weight Loss
June 19th 2015 and 1 stone lighter.

It is not a product that many people have heard of but in fact it is around 20 years. You are getting the micro nutrition with Juice Plus+ Capsules   – www.growhealth.ie/juice-plus-premium and the macro nutrition with the Juice Plus Complete www.growhealth.ie/gluten-free

Juice Plus Complete can be added to  make a healthy smoothie or taken with different types of mil according to taste.

I am not where I want to be yet but I will improve and continue to work on building more muscle and definition. Like alot of things, small improvements make a big difference.

At 6ft 1, I don’t need to be losing a massive amount of weight, I just was not happy with the the way things were headed in 2014.

Not just me but my girlfriend said she has lost weight over the last two weeks from 9 stone 7lbs to 9 stone 1lb.  Again, taking Juice Plus Premium and Juice Plus Complete. Needless to say, Leanne is delighted.
