Transformation Tuesday – Randy Colon
Sometimes you meet people and immediately have a connection, that was how I felt when I met Randy at his CrossFit L1 seminar. I stuck around after the seminar ended so we got the opportunity to work out together at his box CrossFit Mousetrap. It was the beginning of a beautiful bromance and now after spending two weeks living in his spare room and eating him out of house and home I know we are macro friends for life. Check out Randy’s success with Own Your Eating in the last year.
When did you start Flexible Eating?
I got started in July 2016.
What prompted you to get started?
Seeing how shredded and strong Jason was made me wonder how he had the body he had. I realized it had to do with his nutrition and wanted to know specifically what he was eating. I saw how he trained because we had the opportunity to work out together after my CrossFit Level 1 in Florida and I was inspired to try whatever he was doing!
What changes have you noticed in your body?
When I started, I weighed 210lbs. I now weigh 195lbs. I am stronger, more muscular and have PR’d my snatch, my clean and jerk and my Murph time to name a few. My endurance in longer workouts and my energy level in general is much higher than before I started Flexible Eating.
What has been your biggest obstacle that you have overcome or are working on?
The biggest obstacle I overcame in my life was taking control of my health after a scare I had when I got my yearly physical results back; my cholesterol level was through the roof. My options were to get on pills for the rest of my life or change my habits. That’s when I started taking more care of the food I consumed, started working out again and quit smoking.
This was the best decision I ever made for myself. Despite taking care of my health and eating well I was still not able to get my weight down to where I wanted it to be or have the lean muscular physique I desired. The flexible eating program with Own Your Eating has helped me achieve these goals and given me a much greater understanding of nutrition. I’m able to enjoy foods I love (Taco Tuesday is a regular feature in our week!) without eating like an asshole!
What’s one piece of advice you would give someone that is just getting started?
Be patient, trust the process, take it one day at a time and sooner than later you will reap the rewards.
