Testimonial: Over 100lbs Lost!

Testimonial written by: Stephen

Topping out at 350 lbs, I was surely on my way to type II diabetes, hypertension, heart disease and many other deadly conditions. The problem for me came down to one thing: Food Addiction. I was literally killing myself with food because I could not control my eating. I had successfully dieted before on some various calorie counting diets, but inevitably some major life change would happen and I would slip back into my old eating habits.

When I discovered the paleo community, I was definitely skeptical. The whole “eat like a caveman” thing was just too silly for me. I made jokes like “Does this mean I need to camp outside and hunt squirrels?” Even so, my loving wife was very persuasive and asked me to commit to at least 3 weeks. So, trying to be a good husband, I went along with it.

The first week was very hard, but with my wife’s help, I made it though. Once I got into week two, though, something amazing happened. Not only did I lose a significant amount of weight, but I also felt better than I have ever felt in my life! It was like I was coming out of a fog and entering a new realm of energy and mental clarity. By week three, I noticed that my intense food cravings were gone! No longer was I exerting willpower or simply trying to please my wife by staying on the plan…I wanted to keep going and I did not miss my old eating habits anymore.

So, I kept going….for two years! During these two years, I was met with many big life changes and reasons to go off the plan, but I was so happy with my diet that I didn’t need to revert back anymore.

As of right now, I weigh 243 lbs,meaning that I have lost a total of 107 lbs thanks to the Paleo lifestyle. I’ve lost 14″ off of my waist and gone from a XXXL shirt to a Large.

I’m currently coaching several others in their weight loss journeys and am chronicling my own journey at StephensWeightLoss.com.

    Thanks so much for including my story! If it wasn’t for the Paleo diet, I would probably still be 350+ lbs and miserable. This has truly been a life-changing way of eating.
