Michel and Ana Abranches have been part of our Companion Health community since the very beginning. We are grateful to be able to work with these two superstars. Their positivity and willingness to try new things inspire us to do the same in our own lives.
Ana is the primary chef in the Abranches household, and Michel is quick to express his gratitude for her amazing culinary skills. Supported by Ana’s constant innovation in the kitchen, Michel has developed a love of vegetables, which he mostly disliked when we first started working together.
Things are very different for Michel today. Not only is he eating lots and lots of vegetables, but he has also figured out an enjoyable way to stay active. This is a big feat, as regular exercise used to be a real struggle for Michel. Until he rediscovered his love of tennis. Michel enjoys the game and the camaraderie. And it helps to have an accountability partner waiting for him on the courts!
Ana has experienced a transformation of her own. Eating vegetables has never been a problem for her, but she will tell you that she is now done with diets. And she realizes that making a schedule for herself is important. As a mom who is back in college improving her English (she was an architect back in her home country of Brazil), being organized and creating a routine sets her up for success with healthy eating, regular exercise, and stress management.
