Lose 100 lbs the Paleo Way

Dr. Cordain,

Three weeks ago our doctor recommended that we get your book and try The Paleo Diet®. He said he liked it better than the South Beach Diet or Atkins. Since I was going to have to cook for him, I figured I should read the book. I got so excited that I decided that I was going to do it whether my husband did or not. I had 100 lbs. to lose, have a family history of diabetes and have polycystic ovaries.

To date I have lost 20 pounds, dropped a dress size and shoe size. Yes, that’s right, I went from an 11 wide to a 10 regular shoe size. I am not hungry or tired. My husband is following it about 80%. And he is losing weight also, just not as fast.

As a Licensed Massage Therapist I believe in trying things myself before I recommend them to my clients. Well, it didn't take long for my clients to notice the weight loss and demanded to know how I'm doing it. Many have bought the book and are trying it also. Thank you for doing the research you've done and for helping me and others regain our lives.
