Real Life with Ramon…A Journey To Better Health

Leave a Comment

My name is Ramon Esparza.
I’m 42 years old and I have a heck of a story to tell. Let me start out by saying first off that my lifestyle has changed drastically in the past five months. How I was living is unbelievable. Making such poor choices with eating habits and doing it for so long. How much longer would there have been had I not realized this.

Early 2017

Earlier in 2017, hospitalized for two weeks. Given three meals a day. Prior to this starving all day long at school or work. Come home and binge eat like it was the last food on earth. This happened nightly for years.

No. This is not a way that anyone should live.
It took a medical team, a few religious leaders and an army of friends and family praying over my comatose body to bring the light into life.
This was a bad way and a complete turnabout was needed.

Leaving the Hospital

Leaving the hospital lighter, stabilized and yet incredibly sad.
People watching would assume I could pull it all together and keep going. When finally home it was to an empty fridge.
First thing, go food shopping.

Grocery Shopping

Walking the aisles at the grocery store for more than two hours.
1. Happy to be out and about.
2. Trying to recreate the meals the hospital provided.
Some of the menus from the hospital helped to try and emulate a low salt, low sugar diet.

The Struggle

The struggle was awful. To find anything that wasn’t rife with preservatives or hormones was a challenge in itself. Even more difficult was the obsession with soda. Two full two liters a day previously. The hospital diet allowed for one teeny pop every meal.

It’s Coming Back

As the weeks rolled on, the weight that had dropped began to reappear. It was heartbreaking. Trying everything from the hospital example and nothing was working. Portion sizes, calories, snacks, it was all a total failure.

Spinning out of control I was given the opportunity to try something new.
A meal prep service that had not just my diet, but my life and my lifestyle in mind.

No shopping, no counting, no cooking, no hassle and no worries.
Nobody had EVER told me that I could be part of something bigger than me before The Fresh Plan.

Moving Forward With The Fresh Plan

In the past 5 months The Fresh Plan provided three squares a day. Learning how to curb my appetite between meals. The energy came back more than in years all because of the success with this program.
The Fresh Plan is the best stencil to stand within and and become a part of.

I love it!

The portions are filling, the food is fresh and the results are in.
I’m down 50+lbs from where I was over a year ago.

Do It For You and Those Who Care About You

Your health matters, my health matters, our children’s health matters.

Relearning to eat right is a daily challenge. I’ve changed because of this program and I’m thankful daily to Betsy and Scott at The Fresh Plan for coming into my life.

Thank You!

Like this started out, there’s more to the story, but that will all be told in due time.

Thanks for reading.

Now go out today and really think about what you’re eating. What it does to your body and how it can affect your life long term.

Peace & Love,
