Weight Loss Success

But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure? Read More

“Shelby has changed my life!”

stars

Shelby has changed my life! She’s an amazing coach that knows what to say and makes you feel safe, and able to express your true emotions! Learning Intuitive eating has been a game changer for my mental health, outlook on life, and my body image. I was struggling with serious binge eating, and eating large amounts of sugar. I thought struggling was going to be my life forever. Now I feel in charge, and free to eat the foods I want and also trust my body to know what to do. I learned you can still look great and live life at the same time. I highly recommend going through this journey with Shelby!

“This program will change your life”

stars

I’ve had a lifelong struggle with food and dieting, yoyo-ing between restrictive and binge eating. I felt like I would never break the cycle of fear and self-hate surrounding food and my body. I was crippled by guilt whenever I would eat anything no matter how “healthy” or “good”, and I skipped most meals because I just didn’t know how to do anything that wouldn’t cause me to gain weight. I was exhausted, overweight, and hopeless. When I pictured a lifetime of this restrictive dieting lifestyle, I wanted to give up. Then I found Shelby.

Investing in myself through Diet Freedom was the best decision I’ve ever made. I was skeptical that anything could help me, but Shelby gave me the permission that I’ve needed to give my body what it needs and to feel empowered to make healthy decisions. She told me once that you can’t hate yourself into change, and it’s so true – Shelby showed me how to love myself, stay positive even when I’m going through struggles, and keep moving forward on the path to a healthy life. I feel free from the control that food had over my life, and I have a renewed energy for other things that I’d given up on now that I can focus on something other than my diet. I can’t say enough about how worth it this program is.

"A journey towards healing"

stars

I am so glad that God led me to Shelby! She is so knowledgeable about food struggles, the body, and nutrition, and she shares from her own experience. Through the Diet Freedom University program and weekly coaching calls I have learned so much and been able to process my wins and struggles along the way.
Most importantly, I have been learning how to be kinder to myself, let go of perfectionism, eat what I REALLY want, and experience more freedom and energy to invest in other parts of life besides food. I would HIGHLY reccommend her to anyone struggling with their relationship with food!

"Get to the ROOT of your overeating and body stuff..."

stars

What I love about Shelby is that she got to the root cause of my overeating and body image issues. So many other programs only deal with the symptoms of overeating via weight loss and exercise. Inevitably, I swing back into my old patters. Why? Because I didn’t deal with the root cause.

Shelby establishes routines and practices that address these root causes and conditions. So now, issues that I’ve struggled with for decades, are finally abating. Thank. You. Shelby.

If your experience is anything like mine, there will be ups and downs. You will doubt yourself and the program. Just stick with it and get some damn relief!

"No turning back now..."

stars
Shelby’s intuitive demeanor, education and training are top notch for an immersive, integrated approach to therapy. Without getting into too personal details, Shelby had the perfect approach for me to dig deep and get into past/present traumas, recognizing how it was interconnected with my physical health and relationship with food. No one gets 7 bleeding ulcers by accident, especially when they are not bacteria based. She expertly crafts cognitive based therapy techniques with industry leading knowledge on food and movement, more or less guaranteeing the positive mind and body result you are looking for. If you are looking for an easy, quick fix, this is not for you. If you are serious about your recovery, this program IS for you. With her coaching, I have gone back to a race ready mindset, better tools to use in my current practice as an attorney, and reorganizing my wellness outlook on development of truly healthy relationships with people and myself, and the ability to recognize damaging relationships and ending them with grace and dignity. My road to recovery is far from over, but with Shelby’s guidance, there is no going back the way I came. Years ago, I was told that when it comes to therapy, in any form, you get what you put into it. If you are ready to get into those uncomfortable places within yourself and really dig deep to see yourself as you are, this is the right way to do it. Creating these building blocks for yourself will stick, and you will thank yourself for it. Have that respect for yourself, see it through. When you are done with the time you’ve made for yourself with Shelby, you will be happier for it. I am, every day. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.

"Pivotal step in healing journey... "

stars
I’ve struggled with an unhealthy relationship with food and binge eating disorder for over twenty-five years. My healthcare team recommended a mindful eating program as the next step in my journey. When I first started working with Shelby, I was cautiously optimistic. I didn’t know if I could ever truly have a healthy relationship with food, but now I know that I ABSOLUTELY CAN! Working with Shelby was one of the best investments I’ve ever made in myself. The program is free of harmful ‘diet’ culture and full of tools to help you peel back the layers of your beliefs about food in order to heal and have a much healthier relationship with food. Now that negative thoughts regarding food have lessened significantly thanks to my work with Shelby, I have a lot more time to do the things that bring me joy. My quality of life has improved immensely.

Shelby at TNT has helped me tremendously. After having been to multiple therapists about my eating issues, I am so happy to have found TNT. Shelby really understands everything I’m going through, is always 100% supportive, and brings such a balanced, manageable approach to eating and nutrition. Together, we are changing my relationship with food and changing my life for the better.

"Shelby's diet freedom university…"

stars

Shelby’s Diet Freedom University program has provided the final solution to my diet dilemma. After years of using “proven” and “expert” diet programs, aka WW, LA Weight Loss System, Noom, Diet Center, etc. etc., I have finally gotten to the root cause of my eating disorder (for lack of a better term). Her training modules are well written (and spoken) and the weekly coaching calls are so helpful. It has taken me a great deal of time to go through the program, which does take time, effort, and lots of self-reflection. Although I have not completed all of the modules yet, I am well on my way to a healthier and happier lifestyle–thanks to this program–and Shelby!!

stars

TNT Nutrition does an excellent job of laying out, step by step, how to stop the negative feedback loop in all of our heads and take control of the narrative, ending the negative cycle that holds us back and allowing us to move forward to a much more positive, open space. The program not only focuses on food issues and cleaning up that front, but also more broadly anything that’s holding you back. It has been such an incredible learning journey and I would highly recommend the program to anyone.

"Truly, a healing journey"

stars
When my GP recommended Shelby’s coaching, I had no idea that I’d come out the other end having learned how to love, listen, and truly care for my whole self. After a lifetime of yo-yo dieting, negative body image, and feeling helpless, Shelby’s amazing guidance has truly helped me heal. Gone are the obsessive diets, the fear of failure, and the self-loathing that followed every slip up. Shelby has taught me how to finally take charge and live my best life every step of the way. Shelby – Thank you from the bottom of my heart!! I am a beautiful work in progress and I wouldn’t be where I am today without your patience and care!

"Working with Shelby is a game-changer!"

stars
Shelby did a beautiful job of meeting me where I was, affirming my strengths, and walking alongside me with her wisdom and support. What a gift that was! And it still is, because the tools she gave me will last a lifetime. If you work with Shelby, be prepared for a new and better mindset, new and better decisions, far less attachment to the scale and ‘programs,’ more awareness of healthy, sustainable options, and more comfort in your own skin. She made all of this possible for me, and I am confident she gives her all to *every* client. With far less effort, I lost the weight I wanted to lose, and though stay-at-home orders are still making life more challenging, I have SO much more confidence that my body and I are on the right path. And might I add, the path is more enjoyable. 🙂 Thank you, Shelby, for your knowledge, wisdom, patience, kindness and generosity. I recall with gratitude all the ways you went above and beyond for me and I say THANK YOU!

"Shelby's approach is not mechanical"

stars
Shelby’s approach to nutrition is not mechanical like many other places. She digs deep into your relationship with food, and, well, fixes it. By encouraging a healthy relationship with food, you begin to see the amazing transformation you are looking for — but WITHOUT THE STRESS! The benefits are more than I can count, but one of the clearest is that there is no ‘diet’ and there is no ‘maintenance plan’ and there is no ‘beating yourself up for eating badly’. She provides constant and caring support and you move through meeting your goals. And she is not one to keep taking your money for no reason. Imagine my surprise when she said “I think you are ready to graduate the program!” Of course now I just miss her… 🙂 Highly recommended!!

"Shelby McDaniel's Diet..."

stars

I found Shelby McDaniel and TNT Nutrition totally by accident when I was Googling something (I can’t even tell you now, what it was!), but from the description, I knew this training would provide the missing piece of the puzzle I have looked for through my MANY years of yo-yo weight loss/weight gain. And Shelby and her course have not disappointed. Shelby’s knowledge in this area is only outdone by her coaching skills, which are exemplary. She not only lays the path to “diet freedom,” but she keeps you on that path with gentle “course corrections” when needed and a continual re-focus on the positive within yourself. I have not only found that missing piece of the puzzle, I have found my life again. Thank you, Shelby!

"It’s not about food..."

stars

Through our one-to-one calls and her Diet Freedom University, Shelby saved me from continuing down a path of yo yo dieting and instead steered me towards more sustainable changes that will last my lifetime. When I first reached out to her I expected to be given a diet and exercise plan, to weigh myself weekly and give up certain foods entirely. I was shocked to find out that my struggles really had nothing to do with food, and with Shelby’s help I learned to tap into my inner wisdom, intuition, and actually start trusting my body’s hunger cues again. We addressed how important headspace is (Queen thinking!), and the other things keeping me from being my best self. While I’ll still slip up or fall into negative coping patterns as I implement these practices, I know myself so much better now, and have tools in my kit to succeed!

"From 25 Years of Food Obsession to Diet Freedom"

My time with Shelby completely changed my life – not only my relationship with food. When I found her online I was already on my way to healing my relationship with food. After about 25 years of bulimic behaviors I was in recovery. But I was still very “crazy” about food. It was always on my mind. had gained about 50 pounds and was afraid any type of restricting would make bring back my eating disorder. So I felt very stuck, and in retrospect I can see my world was very small. Being obsessed with food and weight took up the majority of my thoughts.

So I signed up to work with Shelby and I began to make some shifts in my thinking that led me to where I am today – diet freedom – but so much more than that. Today I make food choices that make me feel good. Nothing is off limits but I am empowered to make good choices for my body. Throughout my work with Shelby I also made the choice to quit drinking alcohol – and this was definitely not something I believed was possible before. Now I see it as a healthy choice that I welcomed into my life and not as something I’m sacrificing for weight loss or any other reason.

In the end I did lose weight. I gave away my scale, but I’m measuring progress by how my favorite clothes fit. But there is far more that happened than weight loss. I gained confidence. I lost my chronic heartburn and stomach issues. I was able to leave an unhealthy romantic relationship. My time management is so much better – and I have routines that I created that are important to me and that I choose to follow through with.

Working with Shelby changed my life and opened up my world so much. I recommend working with her and I am so grateful I came across her website that day last January.

"Ended 20 Year Battle with Food"

Since she was just 3 years old, Hayley battled food and body struggles. Despite years of working with therapists and trying all kinds of diets, her first call with Shelby was her FIRST conversation she actually had about her unhealthy relationship with food and body. Shelby worked closely with Hayley for 16 weeks and now Hayley is able to let go of her lifelong struggle with food, allowing her to start truly living her life to the fullest, release unwanted weight, and proactively and positively attend to other personal health matters without her (past) toxic relationship with food getting in the way.

I just want to truly thank you for your support with everything. Prior to working with your coaching, I had been ignoring my health. It was easier to ignore taking care of my body and mind and focus on work then others. Today, I can truly say I put me first then everyone/thing else. I can look at food as nutrition versus comfort or the enemy. I have incorporated new foods, recipes, and lifestyles that I ENJOY! It’s no longer a stressful experience to manage my relationship food. You have made a BATTLE/WAR with food and my body end after 20 years! Thank you for everything you have done for me! You have truly changed my life and future!

"Overcoming 20 Year Struggle with Food & Body"

I have been struggling with a unhealthy relationship with food /body image for the better part of almost 20 years. It doesn’t help that as a military member that I have fitness standards to maintain annually. I found Shelby after searching for a diet consultant and her website jumped out at me because it noted that it deals with individuals with a history of eating issues. A year ago, I was diagnosed by a therapist that I am bulimic. Even though the therapist helped to identify the clinical definition of the problem, I still was in search for the root of my issue.

I changed duty stations and still could not find anyone to help until Shelby came into my life. I was very depressed and felt hopeless until we started talking. While I was a little skeptical at first, what drew me to her was her love for helping others and the fact that she has experienced a unhealthy relationship with food as well. Once I stated her program and watched her videos, almost every block or message spoke to my own personal struggles. Today I have a new sense of self. For years my focus was on what the scale said every morning and now I know that I am a whole person without looking at digital number’s multiple times per day.

While I still have to maintain standards, I am more comfortable in my own skin. Her program has really helped me to understand that food or my weight should never control me. Shelby is a really good person and I would recommend her to absolutely anyone. I believe that she genuinely cares about her clients and she works with you individually to help you become better and whole.

I know if you are coming to Shelby, we have more in common than the average person. If you are struggling with food and your own self-worth through food, she can definitely help you.

"Goodbye Binge Eating…"

I can’t remember the last time we even talked about a binge episode.” Casey tried to avoid all the things he felt he “shouldn’t” be eating, would eat very rigidly for weeks only eating foods he felt he “should” be eating, and he would ALWAYS end up bingeing on those very foods to which he avoided at least once a week. Our Diet Freedom program helped him put his fears of never being able to heal his binge eating to rest. He realizes he isn’t on a diet any more, he can eat what he loves he just doesn’t need to eat a ton of it. He has shifted from being completely food focused to not really even thinking about food any more. He’s lost 40lbs to date and multiple pant sizes! ”

"Restrictive Eater to Nutritional Mental Reset"

Madelyn found hardships in finding balance with her eating. She was very restrictive and compliant to the point where it was unsustainable, which led to overeating and yo-yoing back and forth. She loved whole foods but just couldn’t figure out why she struggled to stay consistent. Madelyn worked through some deep inner work to address the obstacles that were keeping her from succeeding such as perfectionism, shame, and specific triggers that were causing her to overeat. She has learned to embrace the positivity that healthy eating brings to her life, and tune in to her body’s natural hunger rhythm to help her eat mindfully.

Shelby was instrumental in helping me identify some unhealthy nutritional habits I had developed and gave me the tools to change them. Without her insight and knowledge I don’t think I would be in the healthy state I am today, she truly provides the perfect environment to explore and dig deep. For me it was instrumental in improving my health, always persistent and never judging I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a nutritional mental reset.”

"Life Change with My Relationship with Food"

This program has been life changing for me! It is exactly what I needed to have a good relationship with food. I am so glad I decided to do this because I have tried to do many programs on my own because of $ reasons and I thought with the knowledge I have I could for sure do it on my own. Time kept passing by and I feel like things only got worse. I needed support and that’s exactly what TNT did for me among many other things.

Starting out I knew this program was going to work because I felt it was exactly what I needed. It was really scary for me to eat whatever I wanted at the beginning because none of it was healthy, which wasn’t like me unless I wasn’t being restrictive at that time. I started to wonder if it really was going to work but I did know that being restrictive works but its temporary and it takes over your life! I had played that game enough and I was done with it! Shelby told me that you can’t focus on losing weight until you have a good relationship with food. So I decided to just trust her and forget about the weight loss. Once I did that, things really started to improve. I still didn’t lose weight but I didn’t care. I went out and bought clothes that fit me that I actually liked to wear because I wanted to just be happy now and not wait to lose weight. What a waste of time that had been to only wear sweats and clothing that I didn’t like because cute clothes made me feel better and I accepted myself more. Overtime the clothes I had bought were getting loose which was awesome but of course I had just bought them. Oh well, I knew I had lost inches and felt better so that’s worth the $ spent on clothes for a few weeks. I decided to weigh because I thought for sure I had lost weight based on how my clothes fit. Surprisingly, I had not lost any weight. Shelby told me that no one cares what weight your walking around with, losing inches is way better. This was the first time I have not allowed the scale to control how I feel. I didn’t care because I felt good, had energy, and I wasn’t eating off of all the emotions that I did at the beginning. And I lost inches!!

At the end of my 12 week program I had lost weight, not as much as I would of thought but it was even better because I have kept the muscle from all the hard work of working out and I have lost inches and I can now fit my clothes in my closet that I have been dying to wear for a very long time. I walk around heavier on the scale but am just as thin as I used to be. I love that I don’t think about food anymore because that was taking up so much of my time. My energy goes into all the things I’ve been wanting it to go to, like spending more time with my family and focusing on them and not my weight and calorie intake. Healthy food taste amazing to me and unhealthy food isn’t as good as it used to be. I don’t have something unhealthy unless I really want it and I’m eating unhealthy food less and less because it just doesn’t sound good anymore. And if I do want something unhealthy I am okay with it because I feel more balanced than I ever have with food. It feels so good to eat what I want and not put on weight, I can’t believe it’s just a change of your mindset and that naturally happened to me without even trying.

This program is so worth every penny and I would do this program for as long as I needed because it’s worth a good relationship with food! I can’t express how life changing it is. I am such a different person now and not just with food, but in other aspects of my life. I have relationships with people that I never had time for and I realize how important it is now. I was missing out on so much, on truly living!
I am forever grateful to TNT Nutrition, you know what you are doing and you transform lives. ”

"Best Decision I Made for Myself…"

I had always been the athlete who ate what I wanted when I wanted and however much I wanted. After I stopped playing sports I discovered the gym and lifting. With that new found love for lifting I started researching anything and everything. What I needed to do to be like all the fitness model athletes. The people I wanted to be. This is where the roots of the challenges I faced for years started.

I was struggling for several years with the cycle of being on and off track with my eating habits. My cycle would usually last about three weeks of pushing myself in the gym and eating the same food every day before I would make whatever excuse and just stop. I was bored and thought that that meal structure was what all athletes did. I was researching and relying on big name websites for information. So much to the point I was drowning in information overload and was questioning everything I was doing around my eating habits. I lost my passion for what I once loved so much.

In these cycles I wanted everything I thought I couldn’t have. If I had a meal outside of my structure, I would feel guilty for hours after. I would continue to eat that way for the rest of the day thinking, “I already messed up, I’ll get back on track tomorrow.” But my eating habits weren’t only negatively impacted by that. I was environmentally triggered. If there was food around me, I wanted it. If I ordered something, I always had to finish my plate. This was my hard earned money and I didn’t want to waste it. My weight would follow those eating habits and I was constantly up and down each month. The cycles left me emotionally exhausted, questioning everything around my routine and mostly just unhappy. I had had enough!

Through my time of working with Shelby, everything started to click. I have more energy and found my passion for the gym and eating healthy again. My meals are colorful with choices and am never bored. I relearned to give myself permission, freedom and most importantly really listen to my body. To pause and tune-in to what it is I actually want and not solve every issue or success with food. There is no longer that sense of confusion or questioning my decisions. I now know what works best for me and my current goal and haven’t once thought about going back to those negative habits. The trust and confidence I have in myself now has traveled over to other areas of my life. Without Shelby I would still be on my three week cycle like I was for so many years. This part of my fitness journey has been one of the best decisions I could have made for myself. I see and feel the changes I have done in such a short time and now know what I am capable of doing! ”

"I No Longer Worry About Food Or Calories!"

Hi Shelby! I’ve been wanting to email you and give you an update on how I’m doing and to tell you how much you helped me!! I truly feel like everything has changed for me! I’ve been working out at least 4 times a week and I actually want to work out (most of the time ha!). I no longer worry about food or calories and love how much freedom I have now! I joined a weight loss challenge in my neighborhood and everyone is doing WW, Keto, fasting, low carb etc and I’m over here not counting a thing and still losing weight 🙂 HAHa! I’ve lost 10.2 since starting with you and am hoping for more eventually! I realized that I didn’t need to eat breakfast just bc I took meds in the morning. I take them on an empty stomach and eat when I’m hungry! It really is life changing what you taught me. It’s so true that when you live an active lifestyle and keep balance you really don’t have to pay much attention to calories, fat etc. I listen to my body and on accident it seems that intermittent fasting has been what works for me. I basically eat my last meal around 5 or 6 and don’t eat again till 10:00ish. And when I’m around sweets I tell myself that I can have these at any time. When I’m staring in the pantry I catch myself asking am I hungry? thirsty? bored? It’s really awesome 🙂 Our calls were so helpful to me and everyone working with you is so lucky! Thank you for everything! ”

"Awesomesauce!"

Shelby !

I just wanted to take the time out to say thank you again. Coming into this I was expecting, but not knowing what I would get. “TNT” has changed my whole outlook on nutrition and just life period. Dealing/Coping with depression and anxiety, you took the time out to help me understand what I was feeling and why. I don’t know any other company that does that. Not only did you help me understand the WHY, but we found the HOW to find the positive out of everything, and how to find different ways to deal with my situations. AHHH!!!:) The many of times I tried to hold back my tears when you called to check up on my progression. You became that Confidant, the one who listened and never judged. Still past the tears and bad days, you helped me find a better way. You motivated me to stay positive. I always looked forward to our meetings and your happy voice on the other end saying “HEY! IT’S SHELBY MCDANIEL!”:D Those moments always brought a smile to my face…and if ever feeling down… I felt better in those moments. You know a lot of us start these fitness journeys because we believe that the change in our aesthetics will make us feel better… Nah… It starts with inner. Shelby…You have helped realize that. You know how much stress I was putting on myself to fit into a box I didn’t belong in. Doing everything but me…and I’m not ashamed… because you helped me find pieces of me on this journey. You made me realize how special I am as an individual, and that immediately got the ball rolling. You are such a big inspiration as a person, a coach, and a business woman. You go above and beyond to help others! And that is BEYOND beautiful! TNT Nutrition is definitely the Power Company, because of the Love and REAL you guys offer!!. None of these words could even begin to describe how thankful I am for this experience. Thank you so much Shelby and TNT Nutrition for helping me along my journey. ..Becoming the greater version of myself! YOU’RE FREAKING BOWL OF AWESOMESAUCE!:D”

"54 Years Young"

I joined the TNT nutrition program in May 2012. At my weigh-in last night, I have lost 9.5% body fat and 20 pounds! I have gone down two pant sizes and feel great! My energy and endurance during my cardio workouts and weight training have greatly increased; I can now jog 3 miles at a time and feel great afterwards! Did I mention that I am a 54 year old newly diabetic, post-menopausal woman too? I have never been able to lose with any other weight loss program, including Weight Watchers. TNT Nutrition is different since the program not only told me what to eat, but WHEN to eat it and WHY I should do it this way. This has helped me tremendously and is no longer a “diet” to me, it is my new lifestyle! At my last checkup, my blood sugar is coming down and my cholesterol numbers were great! My goal in joining this program was to become healthier and reverse the Type 2 diabetes that was newly diagnosed. I am well on my way to my goal AND I look and feel much better! If TNT can work for me, it can work for you!”

"I’m Not Dieting Anymore"

I can already feel how much more time and mental bandwidth I have, now that I am not dieting. I do not feel anxiety toward all of my favorite foods in my house! I bought cake, because I really wanted it, and then I ate until I was satisfied. I put the rest in the fridge. I have never been able to stop eating a piece of cake, unless it was to force myself to throw it away. I stopped eating it because I was done—again, this is new. I also no longer go to the store everyday with my evening cravings because I always have options I love at home. This is just so different!”

"Shelby became a true friend..."

Shelby made this process as easy as possible. She really invested herself in learning my lifestyle, schedule, and everyday pressures. I have lost 20 pounds, I could not have done this without my coach and friend, because Shelby truly did become a friend through this process and really showed how much she cared about my success, not only for my wedding, but throughout the rest of my life. The tools she taught me have helped me maintain my loss, and I have found a new balance which allows me to enjoy my life without the constant stress that I’ll fall off the bandwagon. I am forever grateful to Shelby and this program!”

"Shelby is a phenomenal coach..."

I absolutely love working with Shelby – she is a phenomenal coach: extremely knowledgeable, not just when it comes to nutrition and exercising, but also when it comes to the “human factor.” She has such a wonderful, positive approach and I’ve learned a whole new way to look at eating, nutrition and exercising, and how all these aspects of a healthy lifestyle are interlinked, what works and what doesn’t work for me personally and I am so excited about having the ability to be completely in control of where I go from here.
Thank you Shelby!”

"Professional Ballroom Dancer Comeback"

Up until the age of 35 I never worried about my weight. I am a ballroom dancer, so I was constantly moving and training, if I needed to lose a few pounds – well I cut out the “good stuff” – the candy bars and sodas – the weight came off and I was back down to a size 0/2 and weighed 115 pounds at 5’6″. I was a smoker and that was another thing we did – have a cigarette instead of eat.

Then things changed at 35 – I got married and my priorities changed. I wanted to have children, unfortunately I went through a couple of miscarriages. At 39 I was pregnant once more, I quit smoking and dancing the day I found out and in my first trimester gained 30 pounds. I sat at home and worked behind the desk by my third trimester was at 180 pounds. Then developed gestational diabetes – by the time I gave birth to my daughter a month before my 40th birthday – I was at 210 pounds. With birth 20 pounds came off and then nothing. When my daughter was 9 months old I discovered Zumba and was ecstatic (I do not enjoy working out – it always felt like a chore) – with Zumba I got to dance and it did not feel like a workout. I came down to 145 pounds – and found out I was pregnant with my son. I did so well with him – I had gained only 17 pounds at 7 months – I was all baby – then they discovered I had hypertension and got put on bed rest – by the time I gave birth I was back up to 195 pounds.

Here I am 45 years old, with hypertension (it has remained with me since my last pregnancy) I was teaching 12-14 Zumba classes a week, on top of ballroom classes, so in constant motion, and stuck at 160 pounds. I made an appointment with a nutritionist – she looked at my activity level and my caloric intake and could not understand why I was not losing weight. Mind you – I had coffee for breakfast – taught endless amounts of classes – stuffed a banana in my mouth if I was lucky – and then ate whatever I could find in the refrigerator at 10pm at night. Trainers told me I need to vary up my workout – add weight bearing workouts – not that I disagree – BUT – I have two small children, I sleep 5 hours a night, I need my energy to teach the classes that pay my bills – there was not enough time in my day to ADD another activity. I felt hopeless. That is when Shelby comes in. One of my friends – started telling me about this lady she found online. My friend was a trainer – always wanted to have the physique of a body builder – but could never find the right balance of working out and nutrition. I said “Let me see what she does for you and then I will try” – well – I watched Jen’s body transform into a muscle clad beauty. Still I was skeptical – I am a Latin ballroom dancer – I want beautiful and sexy and curvy lean. Jen convinced me to try it – she said – Shelby will tailor your nutrition to you….

I worked with Shelby for a under a year. It was amazing – I finally felt like someone was LISTENING – she took into consideration – my lifestyle, lack of time, that I was an athlete, me being a mother over 40 with two small kids, the fact that I LOVED chocolate. She taught me how to eat, how not to feel guilty, to enjoy the foods that I love, how not to say “NO” but to say “YES” – and to listen to your body when it says – “I’m good – we don’t need anymore”. She taught me to eat all the time – YES I am constantly eating. My students are always laughing because I am constantly snacking between classes. Now I do have one negative – I have to carry an extra bag with me every day to work – it has all my food for the day!

Today, a year later, I am about to turn 48 and feel amazing. I weigh about 135 pounds and am a size 4/6. I maintain this weight without much mental effort. You have really given me all the tools I need to stay healthy and feel great (and look it too – for an almost 50 year old). I don’t feel guilty when I enjoy food because I know that the 95% of the time the foods that I gravitate towards, the food that I enjoy and I feel great after I am done eating is food that is great for my body. I feel great, and much healthier than I have ever been. Thank you, Shelby, for listening!”

"MMA, Veteran"

Army Veteran Justin P’s success didn’t come right away. We manipulated his calories, carbs and saw some progress which was great, even threw in Some mindful eating consulting to help find more balance in his off season, but then progress slowed and it seemed like there was a disconnect between him and his food for in season. To keep him mentally positive and on point while dialing in for jujitsu tournaments we incorporated a ketogenic diet, something we don’t normally resort to, and it just seems to really work for him in many ways. He is now down -25lbs! The success was due to some amazing teamwork and constant listening, adjusting, and monitoring. 

Shortly following his success Justin was picked up by the nationally recognized WE DEFY Foundation, a veteran-driven organization that provides combat veterans suffering from life-disabling injuries and/or PTSD a long term means to overcome their challenges through Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and fitness training. ”

"We Are Family"

Time and attention has almost become a thing of the past in the personal services industry but this certainly not the case with Shelby McDaniel from TNT Nutrition.

Working with Shelby has literally been game and life changing for me. I started with Shelby 4 competition seasons ago and she has fostered my progression as athlete. In just 4 short seasons she has managed to take me from a last place finisher (first NPC show) to placing 3rd at a National level show. Each year we have shown significant aesthetic progress and the progression is noticeably demonstrated in our competition placement (last place NPC Max Muscle, 2nd Place NPC Gladiator, 1st Place NPC XCALIBUR Cup, and 3rd Place NPC Universe Nationals 2018).

Working with Shelby has been a catalyst to achievements we could not even envision 4 years ago, largely due to issues that I face with LUPUS. Shelby is always on top of my health and takes the initiative to research and apply options (healthy options) that will enable us to defy the odds with this sport and achieve overall health/nutrition goals. Shelby has demonstrated her commitment to my health and progress as an athlete. It is because of Shelby’s practical knowledge and application of the sport (as she is fa retired IFBB Pro) and the science she places behind custom nutrition plans (as she has earned multiple degrees and certifications in nutrition and personal training) that I am able to pursue my FITNESS and Pro Athlete Goals.

Shelby we have come such a long way. It really pays to allow time for change (no instant gratification here) and to trust the process. You are more than coach to me. We are family. I am grateful for you and I appreciate you where you have taken me.”

"Triathlete"

TNT Nutrition is an endurance athlete’s partner in performance; training doesn’t work without proper nutrition. Shelby is a pro in keeping my body fueled during grueling training sessions and carb loadingbefore a race. A well fueled muscle is a high performing muscle. She understands that I have enough on my plate with family, work, and training so I don’t have much time to research or guess my nutrition plan. She has it all laid out for me, all I have to do is follow it and focus on my marathons & triathlons. I cannot speak high enough of Shelby and TNT Nutrition, and recommend her to all my fellow teammates and other runners & triathletes. If your goal is to cross the finish line, qualify for Boston, compete in ahalf Ironman, or just PR on your next race; make sure you include TNT Nutrition in your training. I have noticed a difference in my body’s performance during training, race, & recovery.”
