Hi my name is Matt Craven and I'm a working class family man 33 years of age who was very fit in my 20's but my lifestyle changed that as we all know.
- I got a career
- I settled down and my family grew
- Work started taking over as I had bills to pay
- My body was changing size for the worst
- My health wasn't good and I was feeling the stress
- I ran out of time for training and only played rugby every now and then
Life takes its toll and your body feels the strain and this was the result of those few years that flew by:
My family noticed I was putting on weight and stressed. I was eating when and where I could, most days consisted of eating ready meals, snacks whilst at my desk and on the go, which I knew wasn't giving me the nutrients and minerals my body needed and at times I would eat more calories than I needed so my body was just storing the excess calories as fat.
Looking back at a few pictures one day I could see how I let myself go from being a fit, healthy young man to, well basically I had become a SLOB and was using every excuse in the book as to why I couldn't train or eat healthy.
After a Christmas and a few months passed by these images were still in my head and I was becoming depressed in myself thinking about them and thought I need to change and only I could change it.
So that day came and I searched through some old workouts and training programs I did back in the Forces whilst I was on Tour. I started to knuckle down and get myself sorted, I studied the internet for meal plans and Diet Plans (which were good but I put it back on after I completed the Diet).
So with all this information gathered I could see most meal plans could be costly as some of the food was way above my shopping budget. My Mum could see I was looking to change and mentioned the Nutri-Lean Program with Forever Living to which I refused because of the cost and the failed diets I had already done.
With this said my Mum came back with '' Well this Weight Management Program comes with a 60 Day Money Back Guarantee, so really you have nothing to lose by trying it''.
So I worked it out and it was true it worked out cheaper but not only that it would guide me down the path to weight maintenance and fitness habits that will last for the rest of my life. So with the Money Back Guarantee I had nothing to lose.
Remember there is no '' Quick Fix'' to lifetime weight management.

This is just one of the Weeks of the program I did with a basic overview of what was involved, some of the days I had 2 shakes it was just what was fitted around my lifestyle at the time.
You can have your own routine that fits around your lifestyle as everyone is different, this is where I will find a routine that's personal to YOU.
The End Result
My result of the Nutri-Lean Program after the 30 days:
I am happy so far with my results,
I weigh 14 stone 11lbs and am still taking the Forever Ultra Lite with Aminotein Shakes and Forever Lean as I am looking to bulk up ready for getting back into rugby.
Remember this wasn't training everyday this was fitted around a real persons lifestyle, a working family man, if you have more time you would get better results than me.
I squeezed in training when and where I could and also did added things like:
- Watched my portion control
- Parked the far end of the car park (my partner wasn't to pleased)
- Took the stairs when and where I could
- Spent most of the time working out at home in the house or the garden
- Used my own body weight for training
- Bought grapes instead of crisps so the kids and I ate healthier
During the program I didn't feel sluggish or down like most diets I had tried, I felt much more upbeat and energized and with the knowledge it was like learning something new again.
People actually noticed me which gave me more confidence to talk to people and friends again I became back to what I was, that happy laid back person.
Since the Nutri-Lean Programme I have joined the business and want to help others reach their goals in life and do what I did Lose Weight and change my Life Style because its defiantly paid off.
