Here’s my story: For the last year, I have been exercising regularly and eating healthier and I lost about 15 lbs. I reached a plateau and couldn't seem to break through. I first heard and learned about Celsius from a good friend, personal trainer, and bowling team mate. He told me to add Celsius to my daily routine and not to look at the scale for a month. I kept everything else the same, what I ate and my workouts. Within a couple of months – I lost 6% body fat! My overall weight was down a little, so, I know that I am losing body fat while I build lean muscle. That's exactly what I was working out for! Celsius has ignited my efforts and expedited my results!
Celsius played the role of picking me up when I became sluggish in the afternoon or when I needed energy in the morning at breakfast. When drinking Celsius in the morning, it gives me a perk of alertness that lasts throughout the day. When taking it prior to working out, it gives me a burst of energy with no jitters that lasts throughout my entire workout. Celsius has been the best for me later on in the day at work or with dinner after having consumed over 2000 good calories it gives me energy without the crash, plus it tastes good. I look at Celsius as a small change to my lifestyle that has had big results.
I am careful about what I eat and drink, but, I wasn't always this way. In the beginning I still ate fast food for about two months here and there, but now I have cut out all of my fast food from my diet. I have eliminated sodas, fast food, cheeses, and foods high in sodium completely. I have also set a restriction of eating beyond 8:30 pm. Also with my diet I have increased my protein intake.
Once beginning my gym exercises, I have not changed much in my routine besides changing repetitions, amount of sets, weight, and or rest time in order to shock my muscles through my fitness expedition. I exercise 4-5 times a week. With a balance of weightlifting and cardio, Celsius reveals its strength as I power through my workouts which last about an hour. The trainers that I work with have given me good advice to maximize my workouts with Celsius and have witnessed my results! I rely on my local nutritional store for information, a national chain with an educated staff. I asked them about Celsius and they said that based on their customers' feedback – "I can tell you it works!" Now, I can tell them that I agree!
The tips I can give to anyone is to never let yourself down on your commitment. My keys to weight loss have been strict dieting and continual learning; exercise 4-6 times a week, and patience. I never thought companies really used the success stories that people submit, but, it is great to see an ambassador of fitness and my trainer, David, highlighted on your site as he has helped me lose 15 pounds and 6% body fat within 3 months, and now another 3.75 inches.
