In the last year, Angel has lost 191 pounds through diet and exercise. In February 2018, he weighed 405 pounds. He focuses on eating foods with real ingredients and avoiding artificial sweeteners as much as possible. Angel explained the changes he made with meal planning, eating out, and traveling.

“I’ve lost a lot of weight over the last year and did so by not eating out at any restaurants or anything for 370 straight days. I brought my food along with me everywhere I went even on vacation and work trips! NuGo bars are a perfect fit for these types of trips! Always plan your meals in advance so you don’t catch yourself making bad decisions when hunger strikes!”

Recently, Angel found NuGo bars when he was browsing the different bars at his local Kroger looking for something new under 200 calories that didn’t have fake sweeteners in it. He said, “When I tried NuGo for the first time, I could not believe it. It tasted like no other type of protein/healthy bar I’ve ever tried!”

Angel’s favorite flavor is NuGo Dark Chocolate Chip. His wife’s favorite flavor is NuGo Slim Raspberry Truffle.  He loves the real dark chocolate taste and texture. Angel is so happy to finally have found a delicious protein bar for his weight loss journey without an aftertaste, protein chalky flavor, or artificial sweeteners.

“My wife and I probably go through 4-7 NuGo bars a day. Typically, we each take 2 to work, but on days that I am on the go I love having extra with me. We legitimately have about 3-4 boxes of bars on our counter at a time.”
