Dr. Cordain,

After almost two years, I was ready to give up when I read about your diet. It made so much sense! It was logical!

I strictly followed your diet, and in the first two weeks, I lost TEN pounds!!!! As your book recommended, I did not exercise during this time, and I felt rather light-headed at times, but I was never hungry. I imagine that it was quite a shock for my body to stop living on sugar. I started to feel energized as my body started to learn to live on protein without sugar, and over the course of the next three months, I lost another 15 lbs. and I'm now down to a normal weight of 125 lbs, and I’m 5'6". Not only am I happy with how I look, I’m ecstatic about how I feel. I’m no longer tired in the afternoons, I have a new energy, and I’m no longer sick with every head cold that goes around.

I have relaxed in my eating habits a bit in the last few months, and I watch the scale carefully, so that if I start to gain weight, I can tighten the reins on my eating habits.

What you have given me, and countless others, is not a diet, but a knowledge of how our bodies function, and what we can do to lay down habits essential for good health for the rest of our lives.
