Leading from the Front: A Warrior’s Journey to Beating Type 2 Diabetes [Podcast Episode #107]

By: Ben Brown

What are the life circumstances that drive a skinny kid to join the marines, get in the best shape of his life only to end up sacrificing his health for his work and family, ultimately getting lost down the road of what’s considered normal in today's low societal standards?

Today we bring on BSL Nutrition coaching client Gabriel Daley, to discuss the fitness and nutrition journey that led him from peak physical condition in the marines to a type 2 diabetic father of 6 struggling to perform the way he knew he could. Over the past 6 months, Gabe has transformed his physique, overhauled his nutrition, overcome type 2 diabetes, and become the father, husband, and leader that he always knew he could be by investing in himself and his future.

Gabe’s story will help you realize that you’re not alone in the struggles that we all feel day-to-day and that through structure, commitment, daily consistency, and gradual change, you are just as capable as anyone else to make profound change in your life.
