I still remember that first doctor visit, that first colonoscopy 2 days after graduating from college in 2007 and hearing the news, that at the ripe young age of 21 I was going to have to take a pill 3x a day for the rest of my life.
Well times have changed….I just got home from a long awaited dr. appointment at the Digestive Disorders Center @ Presby and I am beyond elated to say I am cleared to BE OFF MY MEDS!!!
I have lived in pain and I have had to limit what foods I eat and when in fear of having a flare up. I started exercising more regularly and introduced myself to clean eating about a year ago and I saw a huge decline in my symptoms but they were still there. And when it hit I was miserable!! At the time I was taking my meds 2x a day. In February of this year I decided to take the plunge! I purchased the 21-day fix challenge pack, committed to a much healthier diet including regular exercise and drinking Shakeology daily and I joined my first health and fitness challenge group . I wanted to see what the whole “nutrition+fitness+support” combination could do for me!!! I had heard some success stories and remember someone telling me how much it helped their digestive issues and I thought maybe, just maybe I could be so blessed!
I am happy to report that I have not had One. Single. Episode since I made those changes back in February!!! I get all my nutrition of the dense meal replacement shake, Shakeology while my other meals are primarily CLEAN foods!!! My exercise has been consistent and I feel better than ever! I reduced my meds on my own to once a day but was convinced I didn’t need them anymore and today that was confirmed!!! Even better, my doctor told me I’m not the first patient he has seen to have such success when making similar changes in their diet!
I know sometimes its hard to see the value and to look past that initial investment but if you take a step back and look at what you’re really getting you’ll see the challenge packs Beachbody offers are much more than a “workout program and month’s worth of meal replacement shakes”. Its a nutrient dense meal replacement which includes your daily vitamin and its the healthiest meal of the day!!! You get the fitness your body needs to function as its been designed to do and you get the support from an incredible group of coaches who are dedicated to helping YOU!
I am living proof that Challenge groups work! Yes, it has helped me lose weight, it has increased my energy levels, and now I can happily say it has helped me toss out my daily chron’s disease meds!!! So…what can a Challenge pack do for you??? Give it a try – there’s even a money back guarantee – what do you have to lose?!?!?!
And yes, in case you’re wondering…Shakeology is clinically proven to yield statistically significant reductions in weight, cholesterol, and HbA1c (index for average blood sugar) among participants. See the results of the clinical study HERE.
Although I have seen significant improvements in my digestive issues, these results have not been clinically proven. Always consult your doctor first for any medical related illnesses.
