"I was virtually a walking heart attack waiting to happen."

How I Got Here

Before starting The Man Shake, I was virtually a walking heart attack waiting to happen. I had high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and very sore joints. My wife Samantha and four kids are what's important to me and I want to be around for them, so I knew I had to turn my life around pretty quickly.

Using them as determination, I set myself a goal of enjoying Christmas 2018 and then starting The Man Shake in the new year.


Getting Started

I found the man shake through watching the NRL on tv and seeing it on social media. After seeing what Adam does for the community and how he donates his time, money, etc., it is nothing short of inspirational and I knew I wanted to be a part of that environment.

I started using The Man Shake and found that it fits in perfectly in with my busy/hectic schedule. I start my day with a Man Shake, and then my diet consists of tuna and crackers, fruit and vegetables, and lean meats. I also cut the sugar down and cut back on the bread as well. I made a decision to not eat after 630 pm at night which I have been doing.

I started walking most days when I could after work, then introduced going to the gym with my partner Samantha. Samantha has been my drive and keeps me going.

I wouldn't be where I am today by not having introduced The Man Shake into my diet, and I thank you for that. 

I have officially lost 30 kg in  6 months using the man shake.


A New Man.

Since losing the weight I feel a lot more energetic, have confidence in myself and I even had to buy new clothes. I can even fit into my 15-year-old son's clothes now! 

The biggest difference is my body doesn’t ache and my knees don’t hurt. I feel like a new man and it feels great.

I will continue taking the man shake for breakfast because I don’t want to go back to where I was 6 months ago and want to stay the same as I am now and maintain my weight and tone up now by going to the gym, walking our dog, etc.


If Someone Is Out There Thinking Of Starting, What Would You Say To Them?

Being overweight, I was embarrassed to make the initial first step like walking and going to the gym. Now, I don’t even think about it. If anyone else out there is thinking the same way I was, then all I can say is just think positive and surround yourself with positive people and the people you love the most.
