Daryl first heard about SkulptFOOD from a friend when the business was starting out, and he hasn’t looked back.
“I’ve been using SkulptFOOD for close to seven years now,” says Daryl.
“It’s so easy to use. I recommend it to family and friends, colleagues, people I meet at the gym – I’ve sent quite a few people their way,” he laughs.
Daryl owns his own business and says his busy work environment was one of the main reasons he joined SkulptFOOD.
“There were times where, if I couldn’t make it up the street to eat, I just wouldn’t eat,” he says.
“SkulptFOOD deliver – so it’s a convenient option for me that fits into my lifestyle.”
Daryl says SkulptFOOD has helped him achieve his health goals, and the variety that the program offers means he never gets bored.
“I like the fact that they’re healthy options that I can change to suit my lifestyle,” he explains.
“I like to eat healthy, and I always have options with SkulptFOOD. I try to eat more fish and chicken than red meat, and I can choose meals with no carbs for a week if that’s what I need – the variety and quality of the meals is why I continue to use it. I can’t remember a week where the menus were identical.”
When asked what his favourite SkulptFOOD meal is, Daryl laughs – “Do I have to pick just one?” he says.
“I can honestly say I’ve never had a meal that I thought was rubbish.”
"I've struggled with weight issues my whole life. My first experience with a weight loss program was when I was in Year 6. As I grew I just kept packing on the weight, no matter what I tried - and I tried everything! I was over 100kgs when one of the consultants at St Vincent's called me and said 'Brenda, I'm going to put you in touch with a dietician'.
The dietician put me on another popular weight loss program and I started walking to work every day but the weight was still going nowhere and I was really starting to panic. The breaking point for me was trying to find a dress to wear to a wedding - I couldn't fit into a size 20 and that was a real shock to me.
I saw an advertisement in the paper for a fitness expo in Darling Harbour and thought I'd go and see if I could find myself a really tough trainer - someone bossy who would tell me what to do! I came across the City Gym stand and asked for their toughest trainer, and I was directed to Sam Karam. Mario was there as well, and I was excited to see the food options - no preservatives, low sodium, it seemed like a much healthier option than other plans I’d been on.
Sam said to me "I'll make an athlete out of you" and I thought, yeah right! I was training with another gym at the time and when I mentioned to them that I might start with a new trainer at City Gym they said, "It's not Sam Karam is it?" I said yes and they said "we can't compete with that - Sam's the best in Sydney."
Sure enough, I started training with Sam and eating SkulptFOOD and next thing, I'd lost 37kgs in 38 weeks!
The best thing about Skulpt is the combination of the training & the food. Sam & SkulptFOOD really understand the metabolic and physiological processes of food in your body and together they adjust the composition of your food based on your training regime and dietary needs. It's such a personal offering. When I started, I was only going to use SkulptFOOD for 2 months - but here I am, eight years later, still loving it! I've gone from a size 20 to a size 8 and I never get bored with the menu – SkulptFOOD are always changing it up and every meal is delicious.
Knowing that the food I'm eating has been tailored to my specific needs is the best thing about the program - it's a truly personalised service and I know I'm getting what my body needs, no more, no less. It's also convenient - I've been using it for 8 years and have no plans to stop!"
