For many people, the choice to make a change to their health can often times be narrowed down to one, specific moment. Whether it’s an abrupt wake up call from a health professional or a culmination of smaller instances, ask someone what sparked them to make a change, and most people will be able to recall an exact story or moment that motivated their decision.

For Richard, a simple, everyday chore proved to be the wake up call he needed to make a change. “One day, I was bringing my garbage out – and I was huffing and puffing just walking down my driveway. At that point I thought, you have to do something.”

Richard, age 50, says that growing up he had always packed on weight easily. “Since I’ve been a kid, I’ve always been someone that if I wasn’t active, my metabolism slowed down and I would gain weight. Plus, everyone in my family on my mom’s side has passed away from diabetes, so health has always been an existing challenge.”

After a career change put Richard from a job on his feet all day to one behind a desk, he noticed his body beginning to change. He lacked energy, his body was tired and ultimately – he was gaining weight. But it wasn’t until that one specific day walking down the driveway, that Richard decided he needed to do something about his weight.

From that moment, Richard started his weight loss journey. He tried a number of different nutrition products, supplements, etc. His results plateaued with every product. After trial and error, he realized that what he needed to find long term success was real food. Making that change to his nutrition in combination with following the keto diet is ultimately what took Richard’s success and progress to the next level.

“I track all of my food on MyFitnessPal. You can see the plateau and where I’ve changed my food. And when I cut down on diet products and other supplements, I saw I had to eat regular food.”

Once I started to pay attention to how my diet affects my blood sugar and inflammation, it was clear to me that the quality of my food impacts my long-term health more than anything else.”


Convenience and variety were big priorities for Richard when choosing a meal prep company. “The food comes already done and it’s clean food. And with the variety of meals that Metabolic Meals offers, it’s a no brainer.”

Additionally, for Richard, both food quality and food sourcing are essential for him to fuel his busy work and training regimen. That’s a big reason why he’s been a long-time customer of Metabolic Meals. “It’s convenient, but Metabolic Meals also makes the commitment to source from places that the animals are properly raised and the veggies are properly grown. Plus, it’s extremely affordable. It’s a home run.”

Since achieving his weight loss goal, Richard has now shifted focus to increasing athletic performance and educating the younger community. “It starts with educating the younger generation. I think that’s the way we’ll be able to change things. Look, this is what you can do at my age. Imagine what you can do if you’re treating your body right at your age!

Richard’s passion for education and athletic performance has led him to CrossFit. He loves the variety, opportunity to grow, and daily challenges. He has a goal to qualify for a professional level competition for his age division within a few years.
