Overweight With Asthma

Dr. Cordain,

I have to share a wonderful story with you regarding one of my clients.

I have a very overweight woman, Jenny, who recently started my bootcamp. She weighs 260 lbs at present. Until recently, she also suffered from exercise-induced asthma.

For the first week of bootcamp, she could not get through a class without her inhaler. Although I admired her dedication, it was painful and a bit scary to watch.

Then I put her on The Paleo Diet®.

This week, after doing this for a little less than 2 weeks, she no longer needs her inhaler.

MIRACULOUS!!

You have changed my life and the lives of so many others. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

Jenny’s also doing great on the diet – not hungry at all, so I know the weight will be coming off soon as well.
