I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease when I was only 14. For many years, I had many health-related ups and downs. Not only did I suffer from painful gut-related issues, but I suffered from many other side-effects as well such as liver issues, extreme migraines, depression, thyroid nodules, rashes, and fragile hair and nails.Fast forward to the beginning of 2018 when I met my Health Coach, Ben. He introduced me to the idea that through making some simple yet profound changes in my life, that my health could improve. He immediately recommended a change in diet—something NO doctor had even mentioned to me before!He met with me once a month to keep me on the right path: eating right and natural methods to take care of my body and ailments. Within the first two weeks I started feeling better, and after 6 months I was in remission!He’s a huge inspiration to me. Not only is coaching with Ben one of the best health decisions I’ve made, but the foods I eat now are deliciously amazing as well. Since working with Ben, I’ve become healthier than ever before. I stay active, eat right and nourish my body with HEALTHY choices, get outdoors, and try to maintain a positive mentality. I’m no longer depressed, or sick—in fact, I can’t even remember the last time I was “stay-at-home-in-bed” sick! I’ve been off ALL pharmaceuticals for 8 months! I have energy all day long and I’ve been able to travel abroad without any issues; I traveled all last summer without a single Crohn’s flare-up or getting sick.
Throughout high school and college, I always carried an extra 10-15 lbs. I did six months of coaching with Ben and he mapped out a whole plan with me for me to take control of my own health. He listened carefully and worked with me on identifying possible pitfalls or hurdles that I would likely encounter. He was right on! It was hard at times, but so worth it and I would even say amazing. This has forever changed my life for the better! I feel I am in complete control of my weight for the first time.I feel great, finally kicked my diet soda habit, reset my taste buds and learned that dairy gives me migraines and makes my seasonal allergies go crazy. For the first time in my life I feel fit and strong. I am so glad to have come upon this way of eating while I’m still relatively young.Doing keto with Ben has taken some effort, but the benefits are so amazing. I no longer get hangry if a meal is delayed. I feel strong and powerful in my own body. I weigh less than I did in high school. I don’t get migraines anymore. I even have abs! I have learned so much about my body and my personal nutrition needs. I have so much more energy to do the things I love. Most importantly, I now know how to take care of my body properly for a long and healthy life.
Working with Ben for the past 6 months has helped me to clean up my diet and go keto. I had no idea how big of a positive change this would be for me. I have lost 15kg. and feel so sharp mentally. This was such a surprising side benefit of learning how to do keto properly with Ben. There is also all the other aspects of life we have discussed, like how to get better sleep and things about light exposure that have really made a big difference for me. He helped me to raise my exercise game and take it from good to great.I am 47 and I feel like I am 27. This lifestyle is really a lifesaver. I have the energy to play with my 8-year-old. I want to thank Ben for being such an important part of my transformation. I feel like I am in the best health of my life because of this journey.
I hired Ben as my health coach and, after he went over my health history and asked a lot of interesting questions about my eating and lifestyle habits - stuff I hadn’t really thought much about - we implemented a specific type of ketogenic style diet with some intermittent fasting. At first I had a LOT of questions, but he was right there to reassure me every step of the way. I feel that making this change was made so much easier having Ben in my corner to work with. Today I continue the same path and tell anyone that will listen, anyone who is ill and especially anyone with autoimmune issue you can reverse the stats. I did. My last labs were all back down to normal, and I have lost weight and kept it off this whole time, all while feeling full and satisfied!I could go on and on. I usually do. But this will give you the idea of how learning this way of living with Ben allows me to remain in the best shape I can be at 58 years young.Thank you.
I looked at my naked self in the mirror I wasn’t happy with what was there and wanted to change. I worked with Ben for 3 months and the difference this has made has been huge.In those months I reduced my body fat percentage by 7% and my BMI went from 25.8 to a “normal” 21.9. Working with Ben has given me the tools to take better control of my body and overall health. It feels like I have won the health lottery!I also have additional health benefit that should be more than a side note here. We ordered a lipid test when I completed my first 90 days just to see how this new routine may have affected my overall health. My triglycerides were at 64 with a HDL/Tri ratio of 1.08. The most recent test before that I was at 168 for my triglycerides and my HDL/Tri ratio was 3.7. What a huge improvement, a drop of 104 for my triglycerides!Thanks for everything you provide Ben! It’s been life changing for me.
