I remember when I received the phone call so vividly… My dad had just gone in to see the doctor for a regular check up only to find that he had immediately been admitted and was going in for a Major Operation!!! I thought to myself, “How could this be???” My dad had been a very active member at Bally’s Health Club for YEARS!! How could he be in danger of losing his life in one day??
The doctor had found SEVERE artery blockage and had to perform not a single…. not a double, or triple… not even a quadruple Bypass. I don’t even know what to call it after quadruple… BUT A FIVE (5) Bypass Surgery?!?!? I couldn’t believe what I heard!!! Thankfully, it all went miraculously well (Praise God) and my dad was released and came to stay with me until he made a full recovery.
Since then, he made better eating choices… but IT WASN’T ENOUGH…. another trip to the doctor several years later and shares a disappointing report that his Cholesterol Level, Sugar Levels and Blood Pressure was TOO HIGH!! The doctor was suggesting for my dad to go on medications to get it under control. He was diagnosed Pre-Diabetic. Oh noooo…. this is unacceptable!
By this time, I had been a Certified Fitness Trainer for about 9 years… why could I not do anything to help my dad before? Did I just not realize that he was unhealthy? He had always been a “normal” size for his height and age so it was never alarming that he could be unhealthy.
Nevertheless, I asked my dad to PLEASE try incorporating Shakeology into his diet, continue eating sensibly and continue exercising. At that time, he had been taking some powder supplement that he had to ADD to his food, it didn’t taste good and it was extremely expensive (actually double the cost of Shakeology). I asked him to stop the other stuff and strictly drink Shakeology so that when he would go back for another blood test, the results would be completely due to this premium health shake that he used to replace ONE meal per day.
Within the first two months, my dad had lost 14lbs…. but even more importantly, ALL OF HIS NUMBERS DROPPED….. DRASTICALLY!! He came back from the doctor with a very impressive report and his doctor told him to continue doing what he was doing and he did NOT have to take the Diabetes medications! My dad decided to join my team as a “coach” because he wanted to take advantage of the 25% Discounts… PLUS reap the rewards that coaches get for taking care of their health and sharing with others.
It has since been at least 1 year since my dad started drinking Shakeology. He continues to rave about how he feels and his energy level seems to be at it’s best! Just recently, my dad posted ANOTHER REPORT from the doctor! He wrote:
Stress test last Monday is a testimony of how faith in Christ, workout, shakeology make me fit to pass under the supervision of two cardiologist and one technician. With regards to blood level it is normal too. Urologist specialist found me perfect and no trace of kidney stones. If we say we love God, then we have to take care of ourselves, so that we can be use in bringing the Good News to the lost Spiritual and Physical!!!
