My Shaklee Story
Here's to your health!
Why did I decide to be a Shaklee Distributer? The answer is simple. I needed help.
I am 42 years old and was not eating because everything I ate, hurt. I have been plagued with stomach and digestive issues since ever since I was 16. After years of being told to calm down and don’t stress to eat 20 grams a fiber a day and you’ll be fine, I stopped eating.
I ate small portions of bad foods just to get something in me and I started to gain weight. A friend of mine with similar issues told me about the FODMAP diet. I knew diet could help, but had tried so many that I was skeptical another one would work. And boy was I wrong.
Three days into the FODMAP, (Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides and Polyols) which are names for molecules found in food that can’t be absorbed by some people…thus causing pain, I was pain free! I couldn’t believe it. Basically, I cut out gluten, dairy, most gasy veggies and almost all fruit, as the diet specifies. This was great, swelling was gone, but now that I had my diet under control, I was ready to lose weight.
Shaklee offered a gluten free, dairy free solution in their 180 weight loss program. To date, I’ve lost 12 pounds and am diligently working on the other 10. I’m still pain free, going on 4 months now which was unheard of for the past 26 years. Shaklee change my life! Not only did I lose weight, but I was finally getting the protein that my body so desperately needed. Oh, I forgot to mention that I don’t eat meat. I had eliminated meat from my diet at 16 because I knew it made me feel bad.
Shaklee’s protein in the 180 product restored my body. My face was no longer ashen, my nails and hair started to grow and I was overwhelmed by the amount of energy I had and still have. It’s been an amazing journey and that’s why I chose to share my story with others thru a Shaklee Business. I want to see all of my family and friends transformed and feeling great.
