The Right Choice for Me!
– Ken Huang – 1-Shape Shape Up Winner 2014
My Reason to Change
Three years ago, my friend entered the hospital with a lung infection and never came out again. He was diabetic and overweight, and I’m sure that contributed to his death. At the same time, my doctor told me I needed to lose weight.
Since then, I’ve tried several weight-loss products, but they were either too difficult to maintain, or showed no results. Eventually, I just gave up. I felt like a failure, and I hated looking at myself in the mirror. I knew I needed to lose weight, but I was always tired. I took a lot of naps!
Recognizing Bad Habits
I would open the fridge and grab something even if I wasn’t hungry, usually junk food. My wife tried to get me to eat more vegetables, but I didn’t listen. I am a 58-year-old math, physics, and chemistry tutor, so you know I wasn’t very active either. I told myself I had no time to exercise. It was time to change these bad habits for good or I might end up like my friend.
One More Attempt at Losing Weight
When E. EXCEL announced the 1-SHAPE Shape Up last year, my wife, Elaine, and son, Alan, encouraged me to give it a try—just for a week. I was skeptical of all weight loss programs by then, but for a week, I took 1-SHAPE twice a day, 30 minutes before breakfast and dinner. I was amazed at how much more energetic I felt. Other weight-loss programs had left me weak. I increased my 1-SHAPE use to three times a day and after another week, I committed to completing the full 8-week challenge. The support of my wife and son gave me that extra edge and my weight loss goals seemed within reach.
Forming Good Habits
I felt so great and energetic from the ginseng in 1-SHAPE, I started playing basketball again, something I hadn’t done in years! I also walked—half an hour was all I could manage at first, but now I take two-hour walks and feel invigorated. To my surprise, I also noticed my knee problem, which made negotiating stairs difficult, bothered me less and less.
Sharing My Success with Friends
When my friends noticed I was losing weight, it was easy to share 1-SHAPE with them. I explained how the American ginseng it contains energized me as I lost weight. That’s what makes 1-SHAPE unique from other weight-loss programs I tried, and I know it really made the difference for me.
I also discussed the basis of Nutritional Immunology with them, how diseases can hide inside our bodies and grow undetected for a long time before they become evident. NI helped me understand that maintaining a healthy weight and healthy habits helps
1-SHAPE Changed my Mind and Changed My Life
1-SHAPE took me from 165 to 149 lbs. and I lost nearly 3 inches off my waist. Even better, I lost my lower chin! I lost my round face! I had a neck again! And my body wasn’t the only thing that changed; my mind changed as well.
Before 1-SHAPE, I had no confidence; now, I am full of confidence! I feel lighter, brighter, younger, and healthier and that has done wonders for my attitude and outlook on life. I feel handsome! I am happier, and I now believe I can do anything I set my mind to. 1-SHAPE helped me reach my weight loss goals but I never realized how much it would change my outlook on life. Now I really understand what it means to have better health and a richer life with E. EXCEL!
