After being hospitalized and becoming a newly diagnosed type 1 diabetic at the age of 22, my whole routine and life in general was flipped upside down. I had always been involved in competitive athletics and had plans to compete in multiple events in the near future. However, when I lost a significant amount of weight (the majority of it muscle) and started taking insulin injections with every meal, I had a hard time focusing on anything else other than the fact that I was type 1 diabetic. My competitiveness in sports quickly took a back seat.
I knew I needed some outside help to get my nutrition to where it should be, as I had no idea where to begin dealing with eating as a diabetic athlete. After hearing and seeing only amazing results from a friend that had previously worked with TNT Nutrition I quickly began researching. As soon as I saw both Shelby and Jenn’s credentials and the variety of people they had worked with, I made sure the testimonials backed them up and I was sold.
After completing only eight weeks of my TNT Nutrition Sports Nutrition program, I lowered by body fat by about 3%, lost inches around my waist, and felt great. More importantly though, I completely STOPPED taking insulin injections which is extremely rare and almost unheard of for type 1 diabetics, and maintained perfect blood glucose levels at all times of the day. I credit all of that to the level of detail that went into the meal plan and day-to-day coaching from TNT’s Registered Dietitian, Jenn Haas and overview of my training from Shelby McDaniel.
I have and will continue to recommend athletes of all levels in addition to the general population to TNT Nutrition. If you have an “issue” or “condition” that makes leading a healthy lifestyle or accomplishing your goals more challenging, team up with some great coaches and get the job done. You can’t go wrong with TNT Nutrition.
