Frank Quates, 47, finally reached his breaking point this last January, almost a year ago: He was sick and tired of being big.
“I was either going to die a young man with a large coffin, or I was going to change my lifestyle,” Frank said. “I started to seriously pursue that change, and that started with the advice of the folks at Nutrishop.
Frank came to us at 335 pounds last January 17, and today weighs in at 210 pounds! Equipped with a healthy meal plan and regular exercise program, he knew he had to be in it for the long run to see success.
“I wanted to be the tortoise, and not the hare,” he said. “That was my attitude, just to maintain consistency throughout the past year. It’s paid off.”
Frank helped his own cause by supplementing his lifestyle change with some key products, specifically chosen for his goals and meal plan. Throughout this time working with us, he’s supplemented with Hypercor, 1-XD, Stance BCAAs, ForzaPro protein, N’Rage, Detoxin and Lipocor. He would sip BCAAs during and after his workouts, meal replace breakfast with protein to supplement a keto diet, and then adjusted once he switched to the Clean Eating plan.
While all the credit of course belongs to Frank for his hard work, he said there certainly were noticeable benefits to the products he tried.
“The 1-XD really made a huge difference, and I know for sure some workouts wouldn’t have gotten done without the N’Rage,” Frank said. “It really helps my energy level and performance. But the biggest thing was that I wasn’t taking anything that I felt wasn’t going to help me. Some stores will sell you anything whether you need it or not.”
That approach is ultimately what helped Frank know he was in the right place to make progress. He said he immediately noticed that we made a “personal investment” in him when he came in, and that he felt like an individual who could make real changes. The encouragement was immediate.
“In any organization, the way customers feel comes from the top down,” Frank said. “Toby and his wife practice what they preach. They believe it’s their mission to help people be healthy and they have a caring attitude that helps them do that.
“I recommend them all the time,” he continued. “My energy’s up, my self-esteem is better, I’m no longer depressed, lethargic. I have restored passion for the things I love. Hiking, being physically active, are things I can do again. I fit into clothes I haven’t worn in 20 years.
“I see people who haven’t seen me for a year,” Frank said, “and they see me now and say, ‘What the hell happened to you?’ I tell them, ‘Nutrishop did.'”
In addition to the FREE tracking and goal-setting portion of the FitManager app, we have worked with them to develop a completely CUSTOMIZED Meal Guidance section that will calculate your macros based on your EXACT Basal Metabolic Rate! How does this work and what is included?
View the short video below to see how it actually works!
Here are the details:
~Come in and do an InBody weigh in. Your results will be uploaded to your FitManager app, and it will use your Basal Metabolic Rate (the amount of calories you burn per day at rest) as a baseline for your caloric needs.
~Then you choose either Lose Fat, Transform (gain muscle AND lose fat) or Gain Muscle. Based on what you choose, the FitManager app will then determine your new calories and macros (percent of protein, fats and carbs per meal) to fit your goal.
~Once that is done, then you can choose how many meals you want to eat per day and the app will automatically fill in how much of each food that you need to eat per meal.
~The best results will be with the foods that it initially recommends, but you can CHANGE any food choice if you want some variety.
~You will get a Weekly Shopping List, which will tell you exactly how much of each food you will need to shop for per week!
~This app changes as you do! Every time you do an InBody weigh-in, your new BMR will be uploaded automatically to the FitManager app and it will adjust your meal plan to fit your new BMR!
~You can even set the app to send you reminders of when to eat. No more missing meals! As your Coaches, the Certified Sports Nutritionists here at Nutrishop can adjust your macros and calories as needed. So if you aren’t seeing results from the initial meal plan macros, we will go into our end and adjust them to keep you on track! We provide all of the support that you need to get results!
~All of this is available for only $25 per month, NO contracts! You can try it for a month and see if it’s for you with no strings attached!
~There are other “nutritionists” in town that charge anywhere from $130 to $300 per month for the same services we provide for only $25/month!
~If you scrolled past the first time, go back and check out the 4-minute video where I show you my personal FitManager app and all of the functionality of the Meal Guidance portion of the new FitManager app.
