John lost 17kg to walk his Daughter down the aisle
John, 55, Springfield NSW
A brief backstory on your health and why you needed to lose weightI've played soccer my whole life, but lately, I've struggled with fitness and injuries. Looking back on photos of a recent holiday when I returned also made me realise I wasn't really happy with what I saw.
The turning point for me came when my Daughter got engaged. She set the wedding for October 2019, so I really wanted to get back in shape for that, and it gave me a goal to work toward.
Getting startedI had tried dieting in the past but didn't really succeed. It was too hard to prepare the right foods and I wasn't sure what I was doing. I had seen The Man Shake on Facebook and television, so I decided to give it a go.
I found the Man Shake fitted into my life really easily. I work in Sydney and commute so it was really easy to have a shake in the morning, man bar for morning tea and a shake for lunch. I found it took the ‘what will I have for lunch today’ question out of the equation. Also, it worked well on weekends as I got into a routine. Dinners were normal but I just adjusted the portion sizes down a bit, but still ate what we normally did before I started.
I lost 17.7kg with The Man ShakeThe biggest difference now I've lost the weight is that I'm so much fitter! I played soccer this season and felt so much better and fitter, no injuries either! I also just feel happier with myself in the mirror.
I've recommended The Man Shake to other people because I found that it was easy and it worked. My brother has since started as well as a mate of mine once they saw the results I was getting.
