Who is Andrew Warneke?
Since I can remember I have loved food. My mom always knew where to find me when I was younger – I was wherever the food was! I used to spend all of my pocket money on sweets, and I became known as the ‘fat kid’ – getting picked last for sports, teased because of my weight, and reliant on my sense-of-humour to impress girls!
I was stuck in an unhealthy relationship with food. The more I ate, the fatter I got, and the sadder I got. But the decrease in self-esteem just led me to eat more. Right up until I was 17 years old I ate to comfort myself.
Tired of letting food win the battle
I was tired of letting food play a role in my happiness and I began studying nutrition. For a time, I researched it as a hobby but eventually signed up for a course so that I could get an official qualification.
My studies focused on body re-composition, and I used myself as a guinea-pig. I embarked on a journey which saw me drop from 85kg down to 70kg in around 6 months. My process was successful because I was ready for change, and I put a huge amount of time and effort into figuring out what was going to work for me.
Balanced lifestyle and body image
I continue to study and research nutrition, exercise, supplements and lifestyle factors with a focus on achieving a balanced lifestyle and building a good-looking body that stays healthy for the longest possible time.
I believe that BALANCE is the most important factor in living your best life and having your best body image.
In trying out so many diet-protocols I have identified the key elements for getting leaner, getting healthier, and feeling great. I have also identified why most diets fail. It makes no sense that with all the information out there, the majority of people can’t seem to achieve their weight-loss goals.
I hope you will allow me to partner with you in your journey to your best life.
