my wife and my parents were worrying a lot because of my obese condition. I did
not like the way I looked and I was afraid of getting diagnosed to a bad
I tried many times to
reduce my weight in various ways but none of them worked out in a positive way.
I am a father of two
beautiful kids, Alan and Shevan, who are very active and energised. They always
wanted to play with me, but it was difficult for me to cope with them and I

increased and now I am living a happy, healthy life.
USANA: What has been the
biggest change for you?

regular exercises every day as a habit. I am also improving my knowledge and
awareness on healthy living and foods around us.
USANA: Would you recommend the
challenge to other people?

It is a good opportunity
for people to get motivated and get onto the right track.
