Mike Golic: Ex-Footballer Finds Weight Loss Success with Nutrisystem

During their playing days, athletes and sportspeople are at the peak of their fitness levels. They have to compete with opponents often in better shape than them therefore there is no choice for them but to work on their fitness. It is only after retirement that they begin facing the same problem as many other people: weight gain. The noticeable drop in physical activity contributes to this. Also, the change in lifestyle is not conducive to maintaining the weight level they were at when they were actively playing. Same is the case with ex-NFL star Mike Golic.
If you know your football, you would be familiar with Mike Golic. He played for the Eagles, the Oilers and the Dolphins in a career spanning a decade. After retirement, he made the transition into the media box and began working as a sports pundit. He is co-host of the morning show Mike & Mike which airs on ESPN Radio. Given his 6’5” frame, you would expect Golic to be a heavyset guy. However, it was when he checked his weight that he realized that he had crossed the 300-pound mark. He knew he had to find a way to get back to his regular weight level.


The good thing for Mike was that he knew the ideal weight level he should be at. According to NFL testing, the ideal body weight for a person of Mike’s age and height was 265 pounds. So, Mike knew that he had to drop around 40 pounds to get back to that level. Like fellow athletes Dan Marino and Don Shula, Mike also opted for Nutrisystem. Having seen other sportsmen find weight loss success with the weight loss program, Mike decided to give it a go.

For Mike, the main motivation to lose weight was to be around his family for the longest possible time. Fully aware of the drastic health consequences of excessive weight gain, Mike wanted to get back in shape and improve his health. So, he signed up for the Nutrisystem for Men program. He chose the diet plan he wanted to follow and placed the order. From there on in, it was a matter of following the guidelines provided by Nutrisystem, which Mike did, to the letter.
You can see how successful sportsmen and well-known people have shown their appreciation for Nutrisystem and the results it delivers. If you are interested, you can check out resources at WeightLosstriumph.com for more information on Nutrisystem before giving it a go.
According to Mike, the great thing about Nutrisystem is that even though you are on a diet, you eat enough to feel satiated for a long time. You won’t feel any hunger in between your meals which makes the plan easier to follow. This, coming from a man who is known to have a hearty appetite, is a glowing endorsement. Overall, Mike managed to lose 51 pounds, a few more than he initially aimed for. He now finds himself in the shape he was in when playing in the NFL.
Mike spoke freely about the food. He liked the breakfast bars but he didn’t like some of the dinners. In fact he was caught saying that some entrees were awful. It’s true that packaged food can never be as good as fresh, restaurant-like food. But at least it does the job!

REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
