When I first came to MetPro, I wasn’t sure what to expect because I had never done a structured diet program before. I had always worked out and had a fitness trainer for the past 7 years, and although I built strength with my trainer, my body composition never changed. During this time, I didn’t consider that nutrition would be the missing link between me and achieving optimal results.
It never really occurred to me that it’s all about food and not so much exercise. And particularly as a middle-aged guy, I realized I can’t exercise my way out, like I could when I was in my twenties.
From the beginning, I felt that my coach and the rest of the MetPro team really took care of me. They were very clear about what I needed to do. And I liked that the feedback was instant. It taught me a whole different way to eat--I finally learned how to eat properly!
With my demanding schedule, I would often find myself succumbing to eating foods that were either not healthy for me, or foods that would spike my blood sugar. As a result, in the middle of the morning or early afternoon, I would be starving. MetPro used my personal data and results to identify the exact diet strategies that would work best for me and my lifestyle. With my new customized diet strategy, I never experienced any cravings or felt that I was hungry.
One of the biggest concerns for me was my demanding work and travel schedule, particularly how my meals would work when I had to conduct business during lunches or dinners. MetPro took the guesswork out of social situations. I would notify my coach about which restaurant I was dining at, and they would provide the exact meal for me to order. This took the pressure and stress out of failing to eat properly. I feel that I was always able to stay on track with the plan and never felt that I was out of sync with my nutritional needs.
I am amazed at the transformation, not just in my body because I do feel much better and my athletic performance has improved, but immediately I started to notice a boost in my energy levels and my self-esteem. It’s been really great and I feel really confident with the guidance MetPro has given me. My biggest problem now is that my clothes don’t fit, so now I have to buy new pants!
