Tell us about your journey to better health…
I’ve always been on the heavier side since I was a child. Throughout my teen years and into my adult life, I unfortunately struggled with depression, turning to food as my comfort. I didn’t take care of myself or invest the time needed to be healthy – not because I didn't want to – but because I felt like I didn’t deserve it. I tried many diets and was somewhat successful, but always put back on all the weight that I lost and then some. I bounced anywhere from 270 to 320 lbs. throughout my 20’s and 30’s.
What motivated you to make a change?
My "ah-ha" moment happened while I was on a trip to Budapest in August of 2019. I took the trip as a gift to myself for making some new life choices, as I was beginning to create a healthier relationship with myself. But as I was there, I looked around at all the local residents, and no one was overweight. That left me feeling paranoid that I was being looked at differently, since I was 295 lbs at the time.
I just wanted to be able to look at myself in the mirror for once and not feel ashamed or embarrassed of the way I looked. At that point, I knew I deserved better for myself, and for once I decided I was worth it. I made the decision that I didn’t want anyone to see me in that unhealthy, overweight state again.
Just a few months later, in October of 2019, I came across 310 Nutrition on Facebook, and after doing some research decided to give it a try. I started off as many people do by ordering the Try It All Kit, and immediately fell in love with the taste of the shakes!
Tell us about your success!
Finding and starting 310 turned out to be a game-changer for me. I never expected to lose all of the weight I wanted, let alone keep it off. It was challenging at first to get going with a good food plan using the shakes, but I pushed myself to find a routine that involved many 310 products – and started developing a healthier relationship with food.
My starting weight when I began using 310 was 295 lbs, and my goal was to go down to 170 lbs, setting tiny incremental steps along the way. I’m 5'10 and have a thicker build, so I imagined that 170 lbs would be the perfect goal.
The day I hit 170, I was ecstatic! I literally got on and off the scale a few times just to make sure it was correct. By drinking 310 Shakes, eating a healthy diet, and living a healthy lifestyle, I lost 125 lbs! And, I’ve been able to maintain that weight since June of this year by keeping up with my routine! I now plan to push towards losing another 10 lbs and reaching 160 lbs, then keeping the weight off. I continue to incorporate 310 into my everyday life, and truly enjoy drinking the shakes and teas!
Along with the weight loss, I’ve also seen some great improvements in my overall wellness as a result of my healthier diet and lifestyle. These include better lung health, lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure, better mental health, and being able to look in the mirror and love myself! I feel amazing and I’ve never been happier or healthier.
What do you love BEST about 310 shakes?
Some things that I love best about 310 Shakes are that they supply my body with exactly what it needs nutritionally, and they’re so simple and easy to make ahead of time. I make shakes on-the-go or later in the afternoon and they always taste amazing, especially the organic line of shakes. I’m always on-the-go, and I used to find myself skipping meals or not having time to put lunch together, but the simplicity of 310 changed all that.
Tell us about your healthy lifestyle routine…
As the weight started coming off, I became stronger and healthier, and exercising became a norm as well as starting my day with a 310 Shake. I found that mixing fruits, vegetables, and other healthy ingredients into my shakes made them even more filling and delicious, and helped stop the cravings for carbs and sweets. I made a routine of drinking 2 shakes per day, and eating 2 healthy snacks, and a clean dinner.
My current healthy lifestyle routine includes starting my day with a 310 Shake – which is normally a mix of 6 oz. of fat free milk, berries, carrots, and spinach OR just a quick chocolate and coffee mix. For lunch in the beginning was a second 310 Shake, again with a mix of fruits and veggies in it.
Now that I’ve reached my goal weight and I’m maintaining my weight, my lunch varies. I may have a shake or a salad sometimes. In between shakes, I often have a yogurt, banana, or Kind Bar. With being a runner now, I keep my proteins high. For dinner, I make a meal consisting of chicken most often, along with vegetables. If I have a snack during the day, I often turn to popcorn. My fluid intake mainly consists of water and coffee. I also add 310 MTC Oil into my shakes as well as 310 Collagen. I love drinking the 310 Teas and have also used the 310 Metaboost.
Two months into drinking 310 Shakes and eating healthier, I started going to the gym. I have poor lung heath so I had to build myself up to consistent exercise. I would go to the gym 5 days a week and do various cardio and weight lifting exercises. As Covid-19 hit and gyms closed, I began running 3 to 5 miles, 5 days a week, biking on trails, and doing abdominal and various strength training exercises at home, mainly using elastic bands. Once gyms reopened I decided not to go back since I’ve been having such success with the at-home workouts.
