“Terry is the man!  He is my #1 most trusted resource for all things related to nutrition, supplementation, and lifestyle in order to improve performance and recovery.  His advice has made a huge difference for me, has improved my recovery, my joints feel better, and I have been able to add some good weight and do things the right way.  Most young athletes completely overlook the power of nutrition, and I wish I would have had access to Terry even sooner in my career.  I highly recommend working with him!”

“Terry not only helped me lose weight, but he helped me recognize my transgressions when it came to my daily diet. Before I was eating less food, but nothing with a lot of nutritional value. Now I know what foods are essential to weight loss. He’s sparked my interest in health and fitness, which I can now share with my readers!”

“After playing in the NFL I thought I had everything figured out. It wasn’t until I met Terry that I realized that most of what I thought I knew about nutrition was completely backwards!

Terry has helped me out tremendously and I recommend his services to anybody wishing to improve performance, recovery, and overall health.”

"Terry is an extremely knowledgeable and personable coach when it comes to nutrition, performance and personal development- areas we are all looking to improve on in today's sometimes discombobulated world. His coaching works because he preaches the importance of getting to know your own body and understanding what works for you- he teaches way more than just one set of rules on what to eat and what not to eat. We are growing and evolving humans and finding out what makes you function at a high-level is an ongoing process, one that Terry can aid you on and provide useful and scientifically researched guidance that well help you feel better. His program is very easy to understand and his advice is practical, but the results are profound! I struggled with joint inflammation and tendonitis for years and by following Terry's plan I felt incrementally better in only a few weeks. You don't need some Instagram model telling you to drink tea for 30 days to improve the way you look and feel- you need guidance from an expert and someone committed to improving your life... and that man is Terry Shananhan."

In the very first month I dropped 25 lbs., my daily cravings went away, and my energy drastically improved. I decided to treat my health and wellness just like I do any problem in my business. I found an expert, I invested the money, and I achieved exceptional results! It has been worth every penny. Terry has absolutely changed my

“I had been to tons of doctors and couldn't find any relief or answers for my health issues. Terry was the one who made all the difference! He got me on the right supplements and diet. I have learned so much about the body and I have started healing from following Terry’s advice. He also directed me to the right doctors, suggested advanced lab testing, and is always there to help me with anything that arises with my health issues. He has done more for me than any doctor and I can't thank him enough!”

"I lost 32 pounds in the first 90 days when I originally started working with Terry.  I was very happy with the weight loss and body composition improvements, but my improved mental clarity and emotional stability have been even more life changing. I have been able to operate much better, under high amounts of stress, and this has been substantial for my business and my overall life.  I highly recommend Terry’s program to entrepreneurs and business owners who want to improve their performance and quality of life!”

"You are going to love how great you feel following Terry’s program! I have been struggling with nagging symptoms and numerous health issues for years.  I no longer have profound fatigue, my hormonal migraines are gone, and I've discovered I can't tolerate dairy. As much as I loved bread, giving up gluten was a breeze because I felt so much better in just a few days. I had been cheating with dairy for months and I felt miserable...tired, bloated, gaining weight, joint pain, etc. Once I fully committed to this, I felt amazing in a very short amount of time and the weight began to come off as well!  I am working out way less and I am leaner than I have been in years!"

“In the first two weeks of following Terry’s program I was down 13 pounds and felt amazing!  I lost all the puffiness and inflammation in my face and started to look and feel so much younger.  I lost 35 lbs. in the first three months and I have now kept it off for three years.  I travel, eat out at restaurants, and still enjoy my favorite drinks.  However, Terry has taught me the guidelines and framework to follow in order to maintain my health and wellness goals and still enjoy my life.  My mental clarity, focus, and productivity is at an all-time high!”

I literally got into the best shape of my life.  I highly recommend Terry’s program for anyone who want to change their body, but I can’t guarantee you will get the luscious blonde locks!”

“A few years ago, Terry Shanahan introduced me to the Paleo Diet. It was long overdue because it changed my life. I struggled with energy issues throughout my basketball career. I thought eating more carbs in the form of pastas and breads would solve those issues. It didn’t work. I knew of Terry’s business my last few years of playing but thought his services were too expensive for me. Google has all the answers and I could figure it out on my own. I now realize that was a huge mistake; there is no price tag on optimal health. I have absolutely no doubt that using his services would have improved my performance and career drastically. I feel better than I have ever felt!”

"A wise person once told me when I was struggling with a chronic autoimmune problem and endocrine issues: ‘If you want to have the best chance of recovering from a serious chronic illness then you need to find someone who has had that illness and subsequently beaten that illness into remission. These are the people who can truly help you.’ Terry was this person for me. I think the reason Terry is so effective is because he is brilliant at communicating the proven methods he has developed in ways that anyone can understand. Just as importantly, Terry’s programs are practical and work for people who have very busy lives."

"I have always been in shape and I know how to workout and eat well. However, after six weeks working with Terry my body absolutely changed! I didn’t expect such a dramatic change. I am leaner and stronger than I have ever been. Terry made several changes to my diet that resulted in tremendous fat loss and muscle gain in a very short time. He has also greatly improved my chronic joint pain through supplementation and diet. The Shanahan Plan works and I am proof!"

Thanks to the changes in my diet, based off your recommendations, I feel better than I ever have in my life. Thanks again Terry, you’re the best!"

"Terry – I’m so glad I contacted you! I thought I was doing everything right with my diet but somehow I wasn’t seeing the results I wanted or thought I deserved. I am already so thrilled with the results I am seeing from the changes you’ve made in my nutrition plan. Everything you explained makes perfect sense and I know I am on the right track now with both my physique and performance. Thank you!!"

- Liz Higgins

“I have been amazed at the results that I have achieved following Terry’s protocol!  It has taken some time, but since following a few tweaks that he suggested, I have lost another 4 pounds in the past few weeks and I am down a total of 12 pounds.  This is HUGE for me, as I have NEVER previously been unable to lose the last 10 pounds!  I also have a great deal of energy and clarity that I attribute to a number of adjustments that he has coached me on with diet, lifestyle and supplementation.
 I am so glad I have stuck with his program and I made the commitment to make healthy changes in my life.  Thank you for being a huge part of my journey!”

“I have been trying to eat a real food or Paleo type diet on and off for almost four years.  However, I now realize that I did not know what I was doing and I was doing it all wrong.  I have felt depressed and I truly have not loved myself for a really long time.  I felt ugly and insecure and the stress has taken a toll on me.  My face even broke out because of all of the stress and there was nothing I could do about it. I was also drinking way too much!

Terry Shanahan’s program has made me feel better on the inside even more than it has changed my body on the outside. All of my digestive issues have gone away as well!  I will always be an emotional person, but now it feels like I can finally keep my emotions under control.  Before this program I felt lost and alone, and now I feel so happy! I have been through a lot in my life and I am just starting to be able to put it aside and move on and grow as a person. I feel like I am finally in control! I feel STRONG inside and out!  My body has definitely changed and I am leaner, but these other changes are even more exciting!

I am also way more focused and my mental clarity is way better at work!  I just love this group so much and it is my new family.  Terry Shanahan and The Paleo Transition have changed my life! I have never felt better and I am never going back to my old lifestyle.  I am telling everyone about this and I want to give everyone this amazing gift! ”

“I have HUGE issues with depression and anxiety. Terry Shanahan urged me to just start by kicking gluten out of my life. In the first 30 days I am already down 12 pounds and my bloating is gone! I haven’t even gone strict Paleo, I am just gluten-free. I have lost more weight than I expected, my brain fog is gone, and I am sleeping so much better! All of this has happened in just one short month. I LOVE LOVE LOVE The Paleo Transition online program and community.”

“Thank you for writing this program! I'm seeing so many great results in my workouts and just in my overall body tone. I'm so much more even tempered on a daily basis. I never imagined that small diet and lifestyle changes could be so mood altering! This is AMAZING!!!”

-Annie Daugherty

“It was so amazing how much better my body felt after just one week of eating this way!  I am pumped!  Overall, I am down 9 lbs. I feel empowered for my health now. I am getting rid of medicines that I have been on for many years. I am excited to see the changes in my body, health, and outlook as I continue this amazing lifestyle! Thank you, Terry for guiding me into a better understanding of food and its effect on the body.”
