When David Palmer started out in the Air Force, he was in awesome shape. But over the years, his job required increasing amounts of desk time and sitting in an airplane for 10-hour stretches.
“I wasn’t in the shape I wanted to be,” he says. “I wanted to get back to where I was when I was in basic training — when I was in my 20s and had a body I liked.”
It’s easy to think of diet and exercise separately, but as David found, they go hand in hand. When he started doing strength training this year, he was soon motivated to get his diet in shape. After all, eating the right pre- and post-workout foods can give you the energy to exercise harder and help you replace fat with muscle quicker.
Being able to grab something light and fast might also helps you squeeze in a workout! So for the exercise nutrition component of his transformation, David turned to IdealShape’s weight loss protein shakes. “My blender has become the most used appliance in my kitchen,” he says.
Not only has David regained the confidence and active lifestyle of his youth, but he EXCEEDED his fitness goal! “I’ve realized that the potential is in everyone,” he says.
