Marco, from Sydney
A brief backstory on your health
I have struggled up and down with my weight since I was a child. I never got the nutrition right and I would exercise for hours on end but always go back to eating crap.
The turning point for me came when I was on the couch in February watching a V8 Supercars race. I just felt like crap. It was a hot day, I was drinking beer and eating junk. I felt terrible so I knew I needed to change for myself and my kids.
Before I had started with The Man Shake, I was over-exercising and not seeing results. I found my lifestyle changed for the better when I started with The Man Shake. I started spending more time with my kids doing stuff and they have loved the lifestyle change too! They are 8 and 4, so I need to be a good influence for them.
I found The Man Shake super easy to fit into my daily life. I replaced breakfast and lunch and then had dinner at home with the family. I got my wife and kids involved too, we all love our Friday night 1-minute man cakes on movie night!
My biggest roadblock was my bad food habits and drinking too much alcohol. I overcame this for my kids, I just decided I’m never going to go back.
Marco lost 21kg with The Man Shake
The biggest difference now I’ve lost some weight is everything, I’m a new person! My life is different, I’m happy and I am a better person, dad and husband. My whole family has benefited and I’m forever grateful.
If someone is out there thinking about starting, what would you say to them to motivate them?
Be good to yourself. Us men, we put the best petrol in our cars, the best oil in our motorbikes, and buy the best cleaning products for our toys. We don’t even think about it, so why do we put crap into ourselves?
Treat your body well and your life changes. Look at your family and commit to change. Don’t go back!!!
