Summary

As a Thistle customer for two years, Renee says she feels transformed and fitter than ever.

Please share a little about yourself!

I am a California native, raised in Ventura County before headed to NY for undergrad at Cornell and then returning to my forever home in Los Angeles. Having always been extremely goal oriented, I have established a great rhythm in LA as a mother of two young children, Vivienne (6) and James (5) while running a company as Head of Corporate Strategy for an Investment Bank based in Los Angeles, New York and London. I love life and enjoying all things out of it like family, friends, and adventures in travel, food and drink. Fitness has always played a steady role in my life enjoying SoulCycle and Studio (MDR) Pilates. I am now 41 and feel like I have for the first time claimed my body in my 40s through thistle and fitness.

How long have you been a Thistle customer?

2 years

Why did you join Thistle?

It was October of 2018 and I was the heaviest I have ever been. My son had just turned three so the answer that it was the baby weight was no longer true. I was eating a horrible diet just trying to get through my busy work/home life. Instagram was serving me thistle ads and I had been considering trying it. My father in law (a vegan for many years) called me on my 39th birthday to wish me a happy birthday and to implore that I find a way to incorporate a healthier diet into my life. That call pushed me into signing up for thistle that night.

How has Thistle impacted your life?

Thistle is now a lifestyle for me. Like many people, I have tried so many different meal plans over my years of trying to find nutrition and fitness health. Thistle clicked and I found the secret to unlocking all of my health potential. The meals are extremely delicious and satisfying - I crave them. My body transformed a year into my thistle journey. I lost 65 pounds, my hair and skin were glowing and all of my food bad habits were eliminated. Two years into it and I have maintained this new body. I look better at 41 than I ever have in my life, including my twenties. My athleticism and stamina have been revolutionized. I always was into fitness but now my sessions are fueled with the right energy supply. Yes, thistle has completely transformed my life and I will never go back.

What is your favorite aspect of Thistle and why?

The delicious meals and extreme convenience of the program. So many people have asked me how I transformed my body as a working mother of two. It’s because thistle made me not have to think about it and allowed me to eat such a delicious and nutritious variety of meals that I have eaten every day for two years and have never once been bored.

What keeps you coming back for more?

I crave it. It is a lifestyle that is part of who I am now.
