From a young age, Donnacadha Lynch thought of himself as the big kid. Even though he was always active, he had a bad relationship with food which only got worse as the years went on.
“It was a vicious cycle that seemed impossible to break, and I ended up in a bad place, physically and mentally.” He tried numerous diets, but just couldn’t find anything that worked for him. He needed was a new outlook and a fresh start.
Finding his confidence
Things drastically changed for Donnacadha after having a motorbike accident in December 2017. “I was lucky to walk away from it. The real eye-opener for me was when I was in hospital and it took 6 male nurses to turn me on my side.” That’s when he knew he had to make a change.
He was introduced to Isagenix and the IsaBody Challenge® by his local mechanic. Impressed with the results he had achieved by following the challenge, Donnacadha decided to give it a try too.
He noticed a difference right away. “Within a week my mood had improved, and I was getting a better night’s sleep. I even stopped snoring!”
He has had an impressive physical change, but what has amazed him most is his new found confidence. “My confidence is through the roof,” Donnacadha says, smiling. Before, he wasn’t confident enough to go swimming with his friends. Now, that has changed completely. “Now I’m the first to jump into the pool or the sea.”
Things like shopping for clothes, something he used to hate, are now so much easier. “It’s an absolute pleasure now. I can buy clothes online without without worrying I’ll have to return them for a bigger size. Sometimes I have to return them for a smaller size!
One of the things he is proudest of is his new chest tattoo, which he got to celebrate his new beginning. “I got it done at a convention, in front of a thousand people. If you had told me I’d take my shirt off in front of that many people before, I would have laughed at you!”
On top of the amazing changes the Challenge has brought to his life, he has been named an IsaBody Challenge Finalist, winning £1,000/ €1,100 prize money and is now in the running to win the European Grand Prize of £5000/ €5,500 and the Global Grand Prize of $50,000 USD.
New energy and optimism
For Donnacadha, the great thing about the IsaBody Challenge is its simplicity. He started using Isagenix to lose weight but he’s experienced far more benefits than that. “The truth is I didn’t even know I was tired before I started Isagenix! I did it purely for the weight loss, but now I’ve got newfound energy.”
He goes to the gym before work, something he would never have done before. “Before, I’d drag myself out of bed at 9 o’clock. Now I’m up at 5, hitting the gym before I get to work. I’m getting restful sleep and I feel so much better.”
This is a new start for Donnacadha and he’s making the most of it. “I’m so excited for what the future will bring. Isagenix has changed my life for the better and I can’t wait to share my story with other people and help them transform their lives.”
