A More Meaningful Life: Scott Rilett Is Unlearning Bad Habits from His Past to Change His Future

Once approaching 400 pounds, Star 1,000 Scott Rilett from Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada, is now close to weighing less than 200 pounds with the help of MonaVie RVL. Like many obese people, Scott's battle with weight started when he was a child.

"Being raised in a household where our main food staples were read meat, large portions of potatoes, and very small portions of basic vegetables like corn, carrots, and peas (all of which were smothered in butter), it was hard to learn how and what to eat," Scott says. "Not knowing any better, I continued to eat like this into my teens and early 20s."

Another factor that contributed to Scott's weight gain was his lack of physical activity. A shy kid, Scott mostly kept to myself and preferred to spend his time reading, writing, or playing video games. He admits that he rarely went outside to play with friends or ride bikes, and he wasn't into sports.

"As an overweight child, obviously you can see how I could be made fun of," Scott says. "After all, other children can be cruel. Not wanting to do things because I was overweight coupled with the jokes and tormenting from other kids, my weight continued to build. It became a never-ending cycle until it was out of control."

As he got older, Scott started to become more aware of his potentially deadly situation. His final wakeup call came when his father developed diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and had double bypass heart surgery—all due to issues with weight.

"I knew I needed to change my lifestyle or else I was going to end up just like him," Scott says.

Scott's first foray into weight loss was fad diets. He tried every diet out there—no carbs, all carbs, no protein, all protein. Whatever it was he tried, he could never seem to get any results. Then, he was introduced to MonaVie RVL.

"A longtime friend told me about MonaVie RVL," Scott remembers. "Having tried everything else out there, I was a bit skeptical. But, with a little (ok, more like a lot!) of persuasion, I decided to try it."

From the start, Scott was pleasantly surprised by the ease of use of MonaVie RVL. With previous programs, Scott would run out of steam after the program became too cumbersome. He found this to be the opposite case with MonaVie RVL.

"MonaVie RVL is one of the easiest products out there," Scott says. "A simple shake, a bar, and a supplement twice a day, and no huge prep work is necessary. I needed something easy and simple because I lose ambition if something becomes a chore. I also needed a product that was conducive to my 12-hour work shift but still packed a lot of punch. I found it with MonaVie RVL!"

Since he began his RVL program in March, Scott has lost 130 pounds. At his heaviest, he was close to 355 pounds. Now, he is down to 225. Along with the pounds, he's cut 14 inches from his waist and says he's gained tons of energy to be more active.

"My results speak for themselves, and it makes me happy and excited and pushes me to keep at it," he says. "The hardest part was having to give up 20 years of bad eating habits: breads, pop, and junk food, all of which I loved. But when I see RVL working, it just makes me want to keep going."

Not only has MonaVie helped Scott get his weight back under control, he says it's helping him to lead a more meaningful life because he can now do things he was never able to do before like play with his two nephews without feeling tired or winded. With his new body, he's also enjoying the little things that most people take for granted.

"I flew to Vancouver the other day," Scott says, "and something as simple as being able to fit into an airplane seat is nice. It's things like this that when I look back to how I used to be, it makes me happy that I've changed my life in such a dramatic way. Without MonaVie and the opportunities it has given me, I would still be stuck in the same bad rut I was in."

Scott's goal now is to spread the word about this life-changing opportunity and to help people with the same problems he's had.

"I want to show people that there is a product and a group of people out there that can help, will help, and do care about them," he says. "I've now learned how to eat properly. I have a personal trainer, and I'm becoming more active in sports. I'm unlearning everything from my past so I can change my future. My name is Scott Rilett, and I am MonaVie!"

USA Today Product Promotion Huge Success for MonaVie

More than a million people in the United States and Canada discovered MonaVie this past weekend, thanks to a special insert in USA Today, which educated readers about the importance of consuming more fruits and vegetables, and gave them an enticing opportunity to enjoy a free sample of the MonaVie premium juice product of their choice.

Response to the promotion was overwhelming, with more than 20,000 requests received in less than 48 hours from people looking to improve their health with either MonaVie Essential® for overall health, MonaVie Active® for joint mobility and flexibility, MonaVie Pulse® for lower cholesterol, and MonaVie (M)mūn to bolster the immune system. The promotion was so successful that it exhausted our supply of allotted product. We are currently processing all the orders and ensuring that those new customers who indicated an interest in being contacted are assigned to you, our valued distributors. You will then, in turn, be able to educate these people about community commerce, and how it can help them to live A More Meaningful Life, providing unprecedented employment opportunity in today’s difficult economic marketplace.

Make a Difference with a MonaVie Japan Relief Fund T-shirt

Dear MonaVie Distributors,

On March 11, 2011, Japan experienced one of the most deadly and devastating natural disasters in history, as an earthquake and tsunami ravaged hundreds of thousands of homes, farms, and businesses along the coast of Northeast Japan. As this proud nation mourns the tens of thousands of lives lost, they must also face the overwhelming task of rebuilding what has been destroyed.

I have been inspired by people all around the world who have rallied around Japan to help pick up the pieces. At MonaVie, we immediately joined forces with the American Red Cross to help support disaster relief efforts; and, I have been filled with a great sense of gratitude by those of you within our MonaVie family who have donated so generously of your time and resources to our brothers and sisters in their time of need. Certainly, Japan is not alone on their path to recovery.

Our MonaVie Japan Relief Fund t-shirts provide one more way for you to help make a difference. With three exclusive designs to choose from, and for only US$20 per shirt, 100 percent of the proceeds from your purchase will go directly to With You Japan—a charity organization created by MonaVie IndyCar racer Takuma Sato to provide responsive and proactive care to the thousands of children in Japan affected by the disaster.

In the face of all the work that lies ahead for our neighbors to the East, purchasing a MonaVie Japan Relief Fund t-shirt may seem like a small gesture; but, it's at times like this that I'm reminded of the story of the young man throwing starfish into the ocean. When asked why he was doing this, he replied that the sun is up, the tide is going out, and, if he didn't throw them in, the starfish would die.

"But, young man," came the retort, "don't you realize that there are miles and miles of beach, and starfish all along it? You can't possibly make a difference!" The young man simply picked up another starfish and threw it into the sea and said, "It made a difference for that one."

While visiting Malaysia, Hong Kong, and Taiwan recently, I saw thousands of distributors come to the stage to make contributions to the Japan relief effort. I love the MonaVie family! Each of us has the ability to make a difference in another's life. Please make the choice to do something significant today by purchasing one or more of these t-shirts. And, again, by doing so, all US$20 will go directly to the relief efforts in Japan.

Sincerely,

Dallin A. Larsen
Founder, Chairman, and CEO
MonaVie
