Diana Garcia - Sensational Bodies
Diana Garcia is the #girlboss and inspiration behind Sensational Bodies, a lifestyle guide to becoming sensational through weight loss and body positivity. Inspired by her weight loss journey losing over 60 pounds, Diana created Sensational Bodies as a way to motive, inspire, and empower other women to take control of their health to live the life they always wanted. Embarking on any health and wellness journey can be daunting, and Diana knows first hand what it’s like to navigate this journey on your own. In creating Sensational Bodies, she knew she wanted to create a way to share her success with other women, and provide guidance and support in their weight loss journeys too.
Today, Diana has designed a product line, protocol, and meal plan that’s easy for anyone to follow. Her goal was to create something realistic and healthy that would help women not just lose weight, but create a sustainable lifestyle.
Often our journeys with our health set the stage for who we are and the impact we are meant to have in this world. I’m so excited for you all to learn about Diana and what she’s created with Sensational Bodies, the goals she has for the future, and how she’s inspiring other women to follow their passions and live life their way.
I'd love it if you'd introduce yourself, what you do, and what you're working on.
Hi my name is Diana Garcia. I am Nutrition and Dietetics student at Florida International University working towards becoming a Registered Dietitian. I am also the CEO of Sensational Bodies. Sensational Bodies is responsible for a weight loss product formulated to help woman lose weight. What I am working on now is on expanding my product line to include other health products and services. I am also looking to start blogging and building a community amongst my followers and customers. I am working to expand in order to meet different aspects of women’s needs including fitness, overall health and lifestyle.
How did you get started?
Sensational Bodies was created from my weight loss journey back in 2013. In 2013, I began my weight loss journey and lost over 60 pounds. From the success of my weight loss journey, all I could think about was wanting to share my success with other women. I knew what It was like to have absolutely no help, inspiration or motivation while doing this on my own. So one day, after sharing my vision with my now fiancé, he told me to go for it and that he would help me however he could. I contacted the manufacture and created what is now known the Sensational Bodies Weight Loss Drops. Along with the weight loss drops, I designed a protocol and meal plan that was easy for just anyone to follow. I wanted something that was realistic, healthy and could help women create a lifestyle from it.
What inspired the work that you're doing?
My love for food and the science behind nutrition came from my weight loss journey. I lost over 60 pounds and have maintained it for the past 4-5 years. The weight loss journey is what also led me to my brand Sensational Bodies. During my weight loss journey, I felt alone and lost and that inspired me to help women regain their confidence while regaining control of their bodies. Through Sensational Bodies I wanted to motivate, inspire and empower women around me through nutrition and building an overall healthier lifestyle.
What is your biggest passion? Do you feel like you're living your passion and purpose?
My biggest passion is making a difference/impact in other people’s lives. Yes, I can say that I feel like I am living my passion and purpose. In going to school to study Dietetics and Nutrition and creating Sensational Bodies I have been able to do just that. I have been able to help hundreds of women lose weight and create healthier lifestyles. I have helped women feel good about themselves and their bodies. There is no better feeling than to live a life with purpose.
What is your joy blueprint? What lights you up, brings you joy, and makes you feel the most alive?
My joy blueprint includes being grateful and to find joy/good in everything. I try to keep the focus of my joy blueprint in non-material things but more on the moments and things that bring me internal and everlasting joy. The things that bring me joy are laughing, praying, being around my fiancé and family and traveling. I feel the most alive when I am creating and planning for Sensational Bodies and when I get to collaborate and connect with different women.
How do you live intentionally? Are there tools/resources/practices that you rely on to help you stay mindful and grounded?
I live intentionally by always trying to be proactive and productive. I want to always be able to know that the actions taken every day are helping me make a significant impact in my life. One of my favorite tools to use to help me stay mindful and grounded is my planner. I use my planner to create my ideal day and set goals. With my planner, I can assure that I am being proactive and that my day is always somehow productive. Another thing, I love to do is always set aside a moment of the day for myself. That means anything from taking a moment to pause and breathe, a moment of rest or even a moment to show god gratitude.
What would your younger self think about what you're doing now?
My younger self would probably think I was absolutely crazy! In high school, I had made up my mind that I was going to become an Accountant. I never really had any passion for numbers but it seemed like the “right” thing to do. Somehow I just think, life has a funny way of re-directing you to what your TRUE purpose is, some of us chose to ignore it and some of us take the chance. Although, my younger self would think I was nuts, I think deep down inside she would feel what I felt now. She would feel the passion and desire to want to change lives and make an impact on people’s health.
Do you have a go-to mantra or affirmation?
My go-to mantra is “I am Fearless and Live Fearless”. I feel like I lived a life full of fear for so long that once I removed the feeling of fear, my life changed for the better. I became fearless and starting living the life that I wanted and doing the things that made me happy. I knew that I was capable of achieving all of my wildest dreams and that the only thing holding me back was me, it was fear itself. I never imagined being back in school after so many years or even having my own business. You imagined if I let fear get in the way of my dreams? That’s why I am now intentional with my thoughts and only accept to live a fearless life.
What is your biggest dream?
My biggest dream is to be able to help as many people as I can. I want my platform to make a forever lasting impact on women’s lives. It’s that simple, nothing would make happier… if I could just live the rest of my life doing what I love most.
