Meet Aman, our February Rockstar! He has lost more than 12% of his starting weight and has reduced his body fat by more than 14%!
I’ve been active all my life but found that over the years, as I hit my 40s, my weight and my cholesterol began to creep up. I was finding it really difficult to outline and stick to a good diet, what with my travel schedule and the fact that I have never really been a healthy eater. I’ve gone on diets before but it was hard to stick to them and eventually my weight bounced back.
A friend put me onto Enara, and I found the technology and team to be a really effective combination for me to manage my diet. I learned how to improve my diet in a few easy-to-execute ways. This time I’ve stuck to the plan, with weekly advice from my dietitian, monthly check-in’s on body comp, and a smart scale that reinforces on a daily basis how I’m doing. I’ve dramatically reduced carbs and sugars (though I will still indulge from time to time) and rotated to a higher protein diet.
I feel like the Enara team has done an excellent job of providing options, advice, and accountability.
My weight has dropped from 208 pounds at the start (about 2 years ago now) to just under 170. More importantly, it was all fat that came off, and I kept my muscle intact with eating + working out 5 or 6 times a week. My body fat % dropped from just over 29% to under 14% today, and my LDL / triglycerides have dropped dramatically.
I am grateful to the Enara team for helping me along this path!
Aman has lost over 12% of his starting weight:
Aman reduced his percent body fat by over 14%*
PBF (Percent Body Fat) is the percentage of your body that is made up of fat. Everything else is usually referred to as “lean tissue.” This gives a more accurate representation of health, fitness, and leanness.
Aman lowered his triglycerides by nearly 80%:
- Fatty foods and carbohydrates that we eat are broken down into globs of fat called triglycerides.
- High levels of triglycerides can increase your risk for heart disease, stroke, and nerve damage.
- Excess glucose in the blood can be used to make triglycerides, which is why people with insulin sensitivity, pre-diabetes, or diabetes often also have elevated triglycerides.
Aman increased his HDL by 20%:
- HDL is the good cholesterol.
- High HDL levels reduce risk for heart disease by helping to protect arteries from the buildup of plaque that can lead to atherosclerosis.
- HDL less than 40 mg/dL in men and 50 mg/dL in women is considered low.
