Brittany Galliher The biggest obstacle for me was being pregnant at 595 pounds. I had a perfectly healthy 7 lb baby girl, because I made the decision to change my life for the better. I changed my eating habits greatly, and have lost 135 pounds so far 🙂 To keep on this new path of healthiness, I will be having weight loss surgery next month. Your bars are what are getting me through this whole preop process. I have to have high protein, low carb snacks/meals and since I am always on the go (school, kids) these bars are the perfect pick for my new healthy life.

Rich Junkerman I’m still currently overcoming my obstacle but I have come a long way so far. My biggest challenge was sticking to a diet and getting active again. I’ve lost 260 pounds calorie counting and 50 on the ketogenic diet. In the beginning I stuck to a 1600 restricted calorie diet when was pure hell. Then I found keto and having a blast while losing weight. The ketogenic diet is definitely for me.

Crystal Taibi My biggest obstacle to overcome was my mindset. I was always in the habit of saying I can’t do this or that… or I couldn’t ever look this or that way. Eventually I realized that I myself was limiting myself and my progress and changed to a positive outlook and a new “I can” attitude. Once I changed that, I noticed more progress and it became a lot easier too. Just goes to show how powerful the mind really is!

Kristin Elisabeth Hande I lost 40 lbs and kept it off.. i went from being the insecure girl who thought she always had to be miserable about her body to be the most confident person ever. i wake up every morning excited to eat my pre-workout quest bar. it gets me up at ridiculous hours because i know its all worth it, plus it tastes amazing. i am finally happy with my own body and comfortable in my own skin. im bitter it took me so long to get here, but better late than never.. i am confident i will stay like this forever because quest is making it easy for me! 🙂 thanks so much for being amazing – it means more to me than you know!

David Ashby In December 2009 I weighed 534lbs with 50%+ body fat. As of today, I’m now 251lbs at 23% bf. I did it without surgery, just proper nutrition, cardio and lifting weights 4x a week. I’m proof that you can achieve anything in life if you believe in yourself, and are willing to work hard.

David Elmore Smith I used to weigh over 650 pounds and I lost 421 pounds with diet and exercise. I eat on the go a lot and the bars have helped me stay true to my meal plan. Thank You

Gregory Thomas Jumped a train at age 12, I slipped, left leg cut off below knee, right broken in 5 places with a compound fracture at the hip. I spent 3 mnths in traction. They said I’d never walk again. After 2 mnths of physical therapy I was fitted with a new leg . This was in 1974. I spent 25 yrs as a salesman. I don’t like being told I can’t do something.
