I was never overweight in my younger years. Naturally, I gained weight after having two kids, but I never lost the weight after having them. By the time I was 46, I was my heaviest at 194 pounds.
I lost weight in 2007 and was at 164 pounds. However, I gradually regained the weight.
The turning point for me was my family history of high blood pressure and knee osteoarthritis. Combined with noticing the stress that I was putting on my knees due to being overweight, I knew I needed to do something different.
I was tired of the temporary weight loss using various traditional dieting programs simply because I couldn’t maintain the weight loss. I diligently searched for a program that would teach me how to maintain a healthy lifestyle and not how to quickly lose weight.
After noticing a significant weight loss in my friend, April Rowland, I had to know what she did. She told me about her weight loss struggles and the assistance that she received from Kurt (Body Refined) to help her reach and maintain her desired weight. I was tired of the “traditional dieting” and wanted to learn how to live and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
So, I decided to seek assistance from Kurt (Body Refined). Kurt taught me the importance and the relationship between eating healthy foods, maintaining a healthy sleep schedule and moderate exercising.
Although not for everyone, one major change that helped me to improve my health was the elimination of meat products. I was never a consumer of pork and rarely ate red meat. With the assistance of Kurt, I became a total plant-based consumer and very soon began noticing major improvements in my health.
Kurt never forced me to be vegan. After reviewing my metabolic panel and sharing with him my struggles and ailments, he recommended we reduce the amount of meat based foods.
My changes were not limited to just nutrition and exercise. I had to make major changes in my schedule to allow me to get enough sleep every evening. I had to learn how “wind down” early enough so that I could easily fall asleep at a descent time. Kurt helped me to build a “life schedule” which helped me to manage my day effortlessly and that helped me to relax in the evening so that I could go to sleep on time.
At my current weight, I feel mentally alert, physically strong and emotionally balanced versus when I was unhealthy with excess weight.
And I strongly recommend Kurt (Body Refined) to anyone who is tired of “dieting” and desire to have a healthy lifestyle. Kurt will help you identify the hidden stressors that have prevented you from maintaining good health. Once you can identify those stressors and understand them, only then you can begin the transformation to the healthy lifestyle.
