Here are several people who made major changes in their lives—
and brought healthful pistachios along for the journey.
Good Health Became A Family Affair
"By my sixteenth birthday, I was diagnosed with metabolic syndrome and was morbidly obese. I realized I was next in line to get the disease; to be the third generation with Type II diabetes."
Undoing An Unhealthy Lifestyle
"At 35 years old, I was 235 lbs. and well overweight. According to the BMI, I was obese. I was low on energy, lacked ambition, physically inactive, stressed at work and had an awful diet."
“I Believe in Proper Nutrition and Whole Foods for Performance”
"To supplement my recovery, I choose a snack that’s packed with good nutrients. My nutritionist highly recommends pistachios because they have tons of protein, vitamins and minerals, like potassium."
3 X Olympian Pushing 40!
"Any professional athlete will tell you, you get out of your body what you put into your body. Proper nutrition is just as important, if not more so, as training."
Life Delivered A Wake-Up Call
"My life was very busy and hectic prior to dropping the weight and getting back into shape. I was always finding excuses why I couldn't get into the gym or why I couldn't do this or I couldn't do that."
Big Changes for a Former Athlete
"I struggled with normal, everyday tasks. It was hard to walk up a flight of steps, bend over and tie my shoes, and very difficult to do my daily job as an elementary PE teacher and coach."
In Good Shape Behind the Camera and Before the Camera
"I woke up one day and the usual struggle began: I rolled out of bed and into the bathroom - preparing to drive to work. I am a photographer, 36 years old and found myself trapped in my daily routine."
Into Mindful Eating
