Success Stories / #ChangeAMeal Success Story: Rodney

Mar 29, 2016 • Smoothie King

Ready to be inspired by this Smoothie King guest’s determination to live a healthy, active lifestyle? Rodney, an Insurance Agent from Louisiana, changed his life by committing to the Change A Meal Challenge and a low-carb, high-protein diet with regular exercise.

Q: Why Change A Meal?

A: When Rodney was diagnosed with diabetes, hypertension, and other health problems in 2013, he knew he had to turn things around. Weighing 344 pounds at the time, he says he was mentally frustrated, discouraged and depressed.

In October 2014, Rodney’s doctor gave him a reality check – and hope. Shortly after hearing that his life was in jeopardy unless he made a change, Rodney decided to beat diabetes and manage his cholesterol by switching to a low-carb, high-protein diet and exercising regularly. Then during a January 2015 visit to his Smoothie King in West Monroe, a team member told him about the Change A Meal Challenge. From there, he vowed to commit to a healthier lifestyle and began replacing breakfast with meal replacement smoothies.

Q: What Meal Replacement Smoothie fuels Rodney’s purpose?

A: Rodney isn’t usually a breakfast eater, so he likes drinking a Lean1™ Vanilla Smoothie to jumpstart his morning. He enjoys the smoothie for its 19 grams of protein and says. “My day seems different if I miss that morning smoothie!”

Q: How has Change A Meal changed Rodney’s life?

A: As of today, Rodney has lost 106 pounds*, dropped his Body Mass Index (BMI) to 22%, and increased his muscle mass. He’s also increased his endurance and has managed to get control of his diabetes and cholesterol through his diet rather than medication.

Rodney is proud to say he hasn’t taken any medication for diabetes or cholesterol since May 2015, and he’s working with his doctor for a diet and exercise plan to stay off them.

Q: What does Rodney want people to know about Smoothie King?

A: Rodney wants others to know that you can truly enjoy a healthier lifestyle with the Change A Meal Challenge. “You can get nutrients that you wouldn’t always get by eating a regular meal,” said Rodney. “Smoothie King helped me to jumpstart my diet and change my lifestyle to a healthier me!”

Rodney made a commitment to get his lifestyle on track. You can, too! Get started and learn more:
