Army Veteran Justin P’s success didn’t come right away. We manipulated his calories, carbs and saw some progress which was great, even threw in Some mindful eating consulting to help find more balance in his off season, but then progress slowed and it seemed like there was a disconnect between him and his food for in season. To keep him mentally positive and on point while dialing in for jujitsu tournaments we incorporated a ketogenic diet, something we don’t normally resort to, and it just seems to really work for him in many ways. He is now down -25lbs! The success was due to some amazing teamwork and constant listening, adjusting, and monitoring.
Shortly following his success Justin was picked up by the nationally recognized WE DEFY Foundation, a veteran-driven organization that provides combat veterans suffering from life-disabling injuries and/or PTSD a long term means to overcome their challenges through Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and fitness training.
