Hometown: West Covina, CA
Gigs: Reliv, Disneyland
Time to change: I played football in high school as a lineman, eating fast food and guzzling soda — whatever was cheap and fast. By the time I was 21, doctors were concerned about my high blood pressure.
Work for it: I started working at Disney and wearing a 70-pound costume in the parade. I also started taking Reliv, which helped me stay hydrated and improved my sleep. Reliv helped me get down to a healthy weight and start to enjoy running.
Going the distance: Now I’m healthy enough to run long distances. I finished my first Disney half-marathon last summer and am eating well, working out and making Reliv a part of my daily nutrition plan. I’ll never go back.
