Consistency is Not the KEY!

Let me tell you about BODi, a company you may have heard of before, or maybe this is your first time learning about it. My role is to help you understand how to utilize it to achieve fast results and, more importantly, long-lasting results rather than just short-term ones.

As a busy professional in America, finding time to go to the gym can be quite a challenge. I can relate to that! I’m a technology consultant in the surveying, engineering, and security surveillance industry; my working hours are very chaotic and change each week. I used to believe that I would never be able to get in shape due to my busy schedule, and I used my successful business as an excuse for being out of shape. I even lied that I was happy as long as I had money and success. However, deep down, I didn’t like what I saw in the mirror every morning as I got ready for work. Especially how I felt – quickly tired, sleepy after meals, lethargic every morning, and always resorting to harmful energy drinks or coffee from drive-thrus.

I used to struggle with my weight, weighing between 215 and 230 pounds. When my doctor informed me that I had diabetes, fatty liver, and insulin resistance and suggested taking diabetic medication, I realized that I needed to make a change. It was challenging because I couldn’t imagine going to a busy gym after work when I was already tired or in the mornings when I had limited time. Giving up my favorite foods was also a challenge.

I came across the BODi Superfoods and super-short workout program when searching for a convenient and effective way to stay fit without leaving my house. It was available through a TV app, which made it easy for me to do it at home. This program also came with a detailed Nutritional Video Course that helped me improve my health and get into shape.

The program taught me that I shouldn’t give up my favorite meals. However, I needed to change my perspective on breakfast and replace it with nutritious superfoods. The program also changed my mindset about physical activity. I realized I only needed to wake up a little earlier, go to my living room, use three sets of dumbbells, and follow one of their many programs on the Fun TV app for 20-30 minutes, 3-5 days a week. No one sees me, and no one judges me.

I liked that I didn’t have to drive to a faraway gym for 5-10 minutes and deal with traffic or packed gyms. During my 26-week BODi lifestyle transformation, I saved almost 26 hours of driving time and gas money. This program helped me stay motivated and avoid burnout, which often happens with New Year’s resolutions.

When I needed a source of clean energy, I chose BODi Energize as it does not contain any synthetics, artificial flavorings, or chemicals that could stress out my liver, pancreas, or kidneys.

After finishing my morning workout at 6:30 a.m., I usually have my first meal around 7 a.m. or 1-2 hours later, between 9–11 a.m. If you don’t have the time to work out in the morning, you can still have Shakeology as your first meal and exercise later when you’re back from work. However, it’s recommended that you exercise in the morning to help keep cortisol, the stress hormone, low in the evenings.

BODi’s nutrition program is excellent for achieving fitness goals. The app, music, and Shakeology Superfoods make it easy. You are even told to cheat once or twice a week. I feel that Shakeology helped control my cravings with mind control to wait for my cheat days. The program suggests consuming 20-30% fats, 30-40% protein, and 30-40% carbs (1500-2000 calories). BODi doesn’t recommend diets that cut out food groups. Staying within the 1500-2000 calorie range is the focus of real food ingredients, but if you choose to cheat, you are still allowed 1 or 2 days a week to eat at restaurants/fast food.

The key to my success was incorporating powerful superfoods into my daily routine instead of consuming artificial breakfasts or coffee shop drinks with synthetic whipped cream. I used Shakeology Superfood Milkshake daily to expose my liver and pancreas to Whole Food Ingredients and to keep those organs healthy. Despite indulging in burgers, tacos, and pizza every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, I have maintained my weight between 165 and 170 lbs throughout the year, even during the holidays and weekends. My friends were amazed by my ability to stay in shape while enjoying my favorite foods.

My experience was like this. In May 2017, I weighed 225 lbs with 25% body fat. By August 2017, 3 months later, I had lost 20lbs and reached 205 lbs with a body fat percentage of 18%. By November 2017, six months after I started my weight loss journey, I had lost another 30 lbs and reached 175 lbs with a body fat percentage of 15%. A year later, by May 2018, I had successfully maintained my weight loss while indulging in cheat meals on weekends and holidays. I weighed between 165 and 170 lbs and had maintained a lean and toned physique. As of 2023, I have held a body fat percentage of 12-15% for the past six years without losing the original results I obtained in 2017.

I credit BODi for my success. Their Shakeology Superfood milkshake and pre-workout supplements taught me to avoid harmful chemicals like Sucralose, Aspartame, and Maltodextrin. I can consume 100-200 carbs daily without hindering my weight loss journey. BODi’s recipes help me avoid synthetics, ensuring I eat healthily without giving up my favorite foods.

When I go out to eat, I usually prefer a fatty steak, potatoes, and beans that contain 50-100g of carbohydrates. Although a small burger from a fast-food chain has fewer carbs, consuming beans and potatoes with 75g of carbs is better for your health because your liver can naturally break them down. In contrast, fast foods that contain artificial ingredients can inflame your liver, even if they only have 15-30 carbs. Moreover, many supermarket products that claim to be healthy use synthetic chemicals to make them taste sweet, which can be misleading since these chemicals are more harmful than carbs or sugar. Studies have shown that artificial sweeteners harm the gut health of many Americans who regularly consume them, for example, soda and sugar-free products. BODi suggests drinking carbonated sparkling or mineral water and adding frozen fruit like blueberries or oranges as a healthy alternative to soda. Always keep that in mind!

Shakeology is a healthy and nutritious superfood milkshake that can be an excellent choice for your first meal of the day. It contains 40 superfood extracts that provide fiber, protein, and carbs, keeping you full for 2-4 hours. Additionally, it’s low glycemic, doesn’t cause an insulin spike, and can help you lose fat. You don’t need to take a multivitamin pill while consuming Shakeology, and it’s free from synthetic ingredients. I highly recommend BODi’s Total Solution Pack, which includes a fantastic nutritional video course for healthy living.
