Welcome to my site and THANKS for stopping by!
My name is Julio Diaz and I created PureShakeIngredientsReviews.com to provide you the best information possible on Shakeology and other Beachbody workout programs and supplements. However, before getting into that, let me give you some background information on how all of this came to be…
The Big Problem
Back in 2009, I was at the largest I have ever been in my life. I weighed around 205 pounds and was close to being put on high blood pressure and cholesterol medications. Several Doctors had told me that I needed to lose weight… Which doesn’t sound too bad until I tell that I was only 26 at the time.
That’s right! If I didn’t get my life straighten out I would be on medications early in life and then who knows how long I would lived after that. Sooner or later I would have probably also would have developed diabetes and other health issues that come from being over weight…
Being obese is not only a physical limitation, unfortunately, being obese leads to other medical problems like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, cancer, and other sickness that ruin your lifestyle and ultimately shorten your life span.
After taking a close look into my life, I knew I had to lose weight… I knew something had to change… Yet, I still wasn’t ready to fully lose weight… One more thing had to happen first.
Close to the summer of 2009, my girlfriend of almost 4 years broke up with me. This was finally the final push that put the desire in me to change… Of course, I was in a bit of depression for a few months and not knowing what to really do with myself at first.
However, after picking myself up from the aftermath of losing someone, I realized I need to get myself into better shape to not only get another girl but to fully start living life again…
At first, I simply did a few push ups every morning to get my strength up. It wasn’t a huge amount of exercise but it was something. Then I started trying to run. I used to love running in high school so I thought it was a good start.
I was so out of shape that I could only run for 5 minutes and then I started walking for another 20 minutes. It was very embarrassing to not be able to do what I once enjoyed and found easy to do at one point in my life.
Over time I kept pushing myself to last longer every time I ran and things worked out great. By watching what I ate and working out at least 3 times a week, I was able to lose about 20 pounds on my own… And then I hit the Dreaded Weight Loss Plateau…
I could no longer lose weight easily… and worst of all I had No Muscle Definition!… Running was a great start but I was still looking like the Pillsbury Doughboy. Which isn’t very attractive.
I searched online for something that could help me break my plateau and to get me more muscle definition. I was tired of having a squishy body!
Unfortunately, I hated gyms because I don’t know what any of the equipment is for and then I didn’t want to exercise in public… Even when I ran I picked a secluded trail so that I almost never saw anyone!
Finally, I stumbled onto a program called Insanity… The name sounded cool… It was completely cardio based… And I didn’t need any equipment… Sounded like a winner to me…
Insanity was the toughest workout I ever completed in my life. After 60 days I had gotten down to about 170 pounds and I still wanted to lose more weight. Since Insanity was such a huge hit, I decided to try another Beachbody in home fitness program called P90X.
P90X required more equipment and a lot more time but I got a huge amount of definition because of P90X. After P90X I was down another 10 pounds.
Soon after working out with P90X and Insanity, I started drinking Shakeology because I have never been a vegetable fan. Shakeology has been an amazing life changer for me. My body is just filled with energy and I love it!
Thanks to the Beachbody workout programs (Insanity and P90X) and Shakeology; I was able to get down to 155 pounds, lowered my cholesterol greatly, and also my blood pressure.
I am now capable of much more than I ever thought possible in my life!
