Paleo, Inc. Heath Squier’s Discovery of the Paleo Lifestyle

Heath Squier | Paleo, Inc.

My whole life, I have eaten a well-rounded diet full of high quality foods… little did I know I was eating the wrong kinds of quality foods! Thank goodness for the Dr. Cordain’s Paleo Diet, which completely transformed my body and my life.

When I started following the Paleo Diet principles in 2011, I was in my early 30s and exercised for more than five hours per day. But no matter how hard I worked in the gym, I simply couldn’t achieve the lean, muscular body I truly wanted.

I thought my lack of results was just luck of the draw, since I had always eaten “healthy” foods.

In fact, in my childhood my mother had been a forward-thinking nutritionist and the founder of a local wellness-oriented bakery, Julian Bakery, the now a thriving, nationwide chain. Yet, even as a young boy, I always felt tired and suffered from a constant case of bursitis (inflammation) in my knees, not to mention horrible allergies, particularly to milk products.

But in 2011, that all changed.

After stumbling across Dr. Loren Cordain’s eating plan I removed all refined sugars, breads, gluten, lactose (dairy products) and grains from my diet. Incredibly, it took only two months to lose 35 pounds – from 220 down to 185, at 6’3.”

When I first embarked on the Paleo lifestyle, I had 14 percent body fat. Within two months of religiously following the plan, I dropped to seven percent body fat. And I felt great! I finally had all-day energy and no longer suffered discomfort after eating.

My results come from following a ketogenic approach¬–kind of a “Paleo Keto” model–using Dr. Cordain’s principles as guidelines. I have found the Paleo Keto approach helps boost my results.

It’s been three years since I first discovered the Paleo Diet. I have easily maintained my weight loss and am in the best shape of my life, all while eating delicious, satisfying foods.

I believe so strongly in Dr. Cordain’s vision that I now create and distribute Paleo-friendly versions of everyday bakery products in our family’s bakeries across the country under the Paleo, Inc. brand. These products enabled me to lose the weight and maintain my results in conjunction with the guidelines I learned from Dr. Cordain.

It’s my honor to share Dr. Cordain’s message with more folks who, like me, try to eat healthfully and exercise, but still can’t get the results they want.

Paleo is the Answer. And I’m living proof.
