I was a college athlete, so putting on weight was never a problem. I used to that that was one of the perks of playing football. I could each as much as I wanted because I was working out to convert it into muscle.
However, I’m not out playing football anymore. Now I am coaching my kids and teaching them about football. At the start of the summer, I was not happy with the way I felt, and I definelty did not look like a college football player anymore. With the football season starting at the end of the Summer, I decided it was time for a change, it was time to change my life for the better.
I was determined to lose weight and even more determined to get my body back into shape. I had always been used to working out to “bulk up.” However, since I was not playing football anymore, I wanted to focus on “toning up” what I already had.
The biggest and hardest challenge of this transformation was focusing on my diet, or what I was actually putting in my body. I had done a lot of research and with some trial and error I found that focusing on high protein, low carb and sugar diet was the best plan for the transformation I was looking for.
My target weight was 170 pounds, and I wanted to be there in 10 weeks. Honestly, I had not been down at that weight since my Sophomore year in High School. However, in 7 weeks, I had I lost 26 pounds, and made it down to 158 pounds! Now, I know these results are typical, but I was determined. I was very strict on my workout plan and even more strict on my diet.
Since my diet had such a drastic change, it also meant that I needed to give the same attention to the inside of my body. I starting taking natural supplements to help provide energy and balance that I was not getting with my diet. One of the things that I started taking regularly was a probiotic, but not just any one.
I decided to try the new PB8 probiotics. PB8 probiotics have been sold to consumers for more than 25 years! That why I didn’t give a second look on trying their newest PB8 product.
Not only does it support the Immune System (which is really helpful during the winter) but it also helps support Digestive Health* At least 60% of immune cells are in the intestines.**
PB8 provides 10 billion beneficial bacteria in a single, vegetarian capsule. Since there are so many allergies out there that affect so many people, this is one you don’t have to worry about. What’s not in PB8: No Milk, No Gluten, and No soy (statement it right on the bottle)
I took a 3 week challenge to see if it made a difference, and it did for sure. In fact, I have been taking PB8 for the last 6 weeks!
Since I loved the product, I will been giving away 6 bottles of PB8 probiotics to try for yourself. Leave a comment and tell me if you had a similar experience.
