Hello, my name is Hugo. I am 36 years old, and I am from Los Angeles, California.
All throughout my childhood I’ve always been really athletic, and really into sports.
I played volleyball all my life so I was just used to being that guy who was always in shape. I pretty much ate whatever I wanted.
As long as I could work out, I was good.
But then I couldn’t work out like I used to
After college, I hurt my knee and couldn’t play any more so I put everything into music. It all started at church. We made a worship band. I actually joined my friend’s worship band and it just started growing from there.
Next thing you know we were travelling to places like Mexico, Peru, Venezuela, and Canada.
I was living the dream that I had always wanted. The travelling is beautiful, you get to share good times with friends, and you get to try some amazing food.
The bad thing is that I couldn’t find the time to work off all that great food.
So I slowly started to gain weight.
At first it was fine, I would take pictures, or we would do a DVD and I would look ok.
But that started to change… after 20 pounds… after 30 pounds… next thing you know I was 55 pounds heavier.
I started hiding from the camera
By that time, I was using old promotional material– I did not want to take pictures!
I didn’t promote my concerts online. After my concerts, I would go on YouTube and I take out all of my concert footage– even footage other people put up.
I was just so disappointed in myself after being this sports guy all my life. The person in the mirror was unrecognizable.
My weight started to affect everything. I was doing three to five concerts a week and all the comments started getting to me.
From one country to another, people would say things behind my back like “oh my gosh, what happened to this guy?” I would hear it and it started to affect me slowly.
I went from this totally secure person to somebody who had to sing that was trying to hide themselves.
That’s an impossible situation when you do what I do for a living!
Something had to change
So when I tried Personal Trainer Food I was a little skeptical. Why? Because it was just food. I didn’t have to do all the exercise that I thought I needed to do and I didn’t have to take any supplements.
I received the box, I saw the portions and the type of food I had to eat and it looked like normal food.
So I said “OK, let me just give it a shot.”
Surprisingly, it’s not like a diet, it’s not diet food. It’s just food! I was eating chicken, I was eating beef. The food is so good; I didn’t feel like I had to make sacrifices.
I thought I was going to have to struggle with it. But it was just really natural.
The great thing about it was that the portions were already thought out for me and I didn’t have to put much thought into preparing the food because it was all there.
I was able to stick to it, even while travelling
So I began to do it and I was worried about it because of my travel schedule. But all I had to do was shoot an email over to the guys at Personal Trainer Food and they gave me some great options.
One of the things that I absolutely love about it is that I can go anywhere, to any restaurant and I have something to eat.
Once you know that you can still have a social life, it’s a done deal!
Even though I wasn’t at my house, I could stay within the Weight Loss Guidelines Personal Trainer Food has you follow. They’re simple and I love that because I’d say probably about 50% of my time is spent away from home.
Those Weight Loss Guidelines are so incredibly easy; I knew I could work with them to lose weight and keep it off for the long run.
Look at me now!
I started off at 255 pounds and after two and a half months or so I’ve lost 47 pounds.
One of the incredible things is that people come up to me now at my concerts or on social media and before they were saying “oh my gosh what happened?”
And now they’re saying “wow, I can’t believe it, what are you doing?”
I’m a private person so I wanted to keep my weight loss journey to myself. But I’m willing to share it with you today because I am so thankful. It’s changed my life.
Now I have so much energy; I want to do more than I did before. I want to do social media, I want to do videos, I want to do all these things.
My energy is great; I feel like I have no limits. That’s thanks to Personal Trainer Food.
Personal Trainer Food changed my life.
