Success Story: Paleo Changed My Life Forever

Changed My Life with The Paleo Diet

Hi Dr. Cordain,

Trust you are well. I would like to take this opportunity to share my success story with you…

Paleo has seriously changed my life forever. I started my new lifestyle 19/08/2012. Since then, I have lost 50 kg without the assistance of any medical intervention.

I learned about Paleo via Fat-Burning Man – Abel James’s Podcast which I stumbled upon while searching for a way to improve my life. After only listening to one podcast, I was convinced that Paleo is for me and that it will change my life, which, fortunately for me, it did.

My life before Paleo was seriously miserable. It was almost like as if I was collecting illnesses/conditions, Gastro Esophageal Reflux, Hernia, Cellulitis, High Blood Pressure, Depression, Sleep Apnea, Insomnia, Migraine and Acne just to mention a few.

Moving around, doing physical tasks really became very difficult. Socially, I did not gel anymore. Buying clothes really become a huge problem, as I was unable to find suitable clothes that I like and in my size. Suicide almost became a daily thought…

Today, I am a completely different person. My social circle has grown from just a handful of friends to many. My cholesterol is now normal and all of my past daily illnesses/conditions are also gone. I have gone from size XXXL to M shirts and from a 44” waist to 30” waist.

My mindset about health and food has changed completely. I am a Software Engineer/Developer by trade, but am considering a new profession and adventure as a Nutritionist/Dietitian.

I am advocating Paleo on a daily basis, motivating people to follow my lead and Paleo. Paleo is not a complex lifestyle and really easy to follow.

Thank you for letting me share my story! I hope that it will motivate and encourage other people.

My photos as proof, as photos do not lie.

Paleo is the best…!!!

    I have been on this new lifestyle for 2 years and the results were amazing. Not only that I’ve lost about 60 pounds and maintained, but my health improved significantly. When I first started the Paleo diet, I found this guide very helpful. Maybe you will do too.

    WOW! What a transformation – you look like father and son in those photos. To think that human beings have the capacity to change their actual size and appearance so much through diet alone is a miracle I can never tire of observing. A fantastic achievement and done healthily and as nature intended. Well done.
