Over the last few months, I’ve had the honour of working with one of the most inspirational women I’ve ever met. She hails from the Bay Area in California and, despite the fact that we haven’t met (YET), I feel as if we were always meant to connect because we are kindred spirits. She exemplifies everything that Steven Wong and the Anti-AgeMe Team is trying to communicate to the masses.
Team Strong Girls Jackie Javier has overcome experiences in her life that would have made most people crumble. She is 51 years old and is a 2-year cancer survivor and motivates me like no other. When she first contacted me, one of the things that moved me was when she explained her situation and her fitness goals to me she also proclaimed, “I MAY HAVE CANCER BUT CANCER DOESN’T HAVE ME!”
With the cancer held in check, she told me she was focused on getting into the best shape of her life and beating anything that life throws her way. Jackie tried many different training and dieting protocols but she was a very frustrated with her slow results that consisted of following a very low carbohydrate diet mixed with a lot of high volume cardio. She felt tired and her progress was stagnant especially with all of the work she was exerting. By revamping her training and nutrition program to provide her with plenty of very important phytonutritents, an abundance of the right types of foods, balanced macros (there’s nothing wrong with carbs), enjoying scheduled FREE MEALS of her choice, and resistance training instead of just metabolic work, Jackie is strutting her new tiny, tight, and smokin’ new body! She can also proudly say she is down 20 lbs and still going!
Aside from the wonderful physical changes, the most important changes are happening. Jackie says, “JENNY! MY HEADACHES, BODY ACHES, AND WEIGHT GAIN FROM THE CANCER MEDS ARE GONE! I’M BEATING IT! YAY!!!”. To me, a successful program analyzes the entire person, their needs, and their nutritional history. In Jackie’s case, the most important thing to consider her health and well-being as we applied dieting protocols. I’m very happy to report that everything is moving along in the best way and I can’t wait to meet her in November to fully document her full progress and share with everyone in the Anti-Age Me community.
Jackie is an inspiration. She is beating cancer. She is feeling great and stronger than ever. She is committed to her health. She is committed to continuously being a better version of herself daily. She is now in the best shape of her life. She is proving age is nothing but a number. She does this all with the most positive attitude that is completely infectious.
