While working at Weigh Watchers, he converted to a healthy diet and lifestyle after being diagnosed with prediabetes, sleep apnea and hypertension at the age of 32.

Following this motto, WellnessOn ensures that every meal is filled with the benefits of complex carbohydrates, proteins and healthy fats with every meal.
