“I was referred to OWN-Nutrition and Katie Rhodes by a friend of mine. She was in the midst of experiencing great success in terms of weight loss, performance and all around energy level just a few short months after beginning a program with OWN-Nutrition. The transformation in my friend was very noticeable which sparked a conversation. I was able to see with my own two eyes the results that a plan with OWN-Nutrition and Katie had on my friend’s appearance. But in addition, my friend’s enthusiastic feedback about the company and Katie contributed greatly to my decision to give them a try.
What I absolutely love about OWN-Nutrition is that it isn’t a one size fits all type of nutrition plan. It is customized to a person’s unique profile taking into consideration gender, age, weight, body type, and performance goals. My friend and I are very different but have both had great success with OWN-Nutrition. My friend is in her 20s, at least 5’9’’ tall, and is a triathlete training for an Ironman. I, on the other hand, am a 46 year old 5’3’’ marathoner with a son almost as old as my friend. As if that isn’t enough of a contrast, I was also recovering from my third hip surgery and had a goal to try and qualify for the Boston Marathon for a 5th consecutive year. As I began to resume my training post surgery and rehab, I was finding it very difficult to shed a few pounds and regain the level of fitness I was accustomed to. I never had this problem in the past so I was very concerned I reached an age at which my body was going through mid-life changes. This scared me as I began to think I would no longer be able to lose weight as easily or perform as well as I once had.
This is where Katie and OWN-Nutrition stepped in. I started a nutrition plan the end of June 2016. In just two and half months, I not only shed those stubborn pounds and qualified for Boston but I ran almost 25 minutes faster than my qualifying time! In fact I ran faster than the qualifying time needed for a female that is between the ages of 18 and 34!! I can’t be more thrilled and I credit OWN-Nutrition and Katie Rhodes for a lot of my success.
In addition to the customized meal plan, I find it so helpful to have a grocery list already prepared. I am able to print it out, check off what I already have in my pantry, and run to the store to buy the rest. I am never hungry and the meals are absolutely delicious! Katie works with me on a weekly basis tracking my workouts, noting my food preferences and tweaking my plan to ensure I am able to perform at my best.
I can’t say enough great things about OWN-Nutrition and Katie. I recommend OWN-Nutrition to anyone trying to transition to a healthier lifestyle and shed some weight. But more specifically, if you are an athlete trying to maximize your performance, you don’t know what you are missing until you give OWN-Nutrition a try!!”
