As a Carlsbad local executive and father of 2 boys, I knew I was in trouble when they started outrunning me! I wanted to be the dad that could keep up with my kids and actively engage in play with them, not just watch them from the sidelines.I have always had the discipline to exercise on a daily basis, yet, when I ramped up my exercise routine to try to lose weight I had no success in shedding the extra pounds. This is when I decided to get help from the NAKOA Nutrition Team.

After getting my blood work done one I met with one of the NAKOA Nutritionists who explained in detail the results of the blood test and provided me with a customized plan to help me reach my goals. The program was clear and easy to follow and too my surprise not nearly as overwhelming as I had thought it would be. It included daily menus with recipes, shopping lists and recommended supplements. I followed her plan closely and in a little less than two months had lost 25 pounds. With the healthier meal plan, my cholesterol level went from “High” to “Ideal” and I felt my energy level go up as well. Throughout the 3 month process I continued to exercise and workout at NAKOA and my energy levels felt great. I met with the NAKOA Nutritionist periodically so that they could assess my progress and follow up with new menus and suggestions. Within three months my body fat went from 25% to 16% and to date I have lost a total of 36 pounds. Seeking NAKOA’s nutrition help was the best decision I have made for my health. It has given me a new outlook on living healthy that will benefit me for a lifetime!
