Semper Fi Robb,
Hello, I am currently deployed to Afghanistan and ordered your book because I had nothing better to do than try something new. For the last 2 1/2 months I have been on as strict a Paleo diet as possible while dealing with a Marine Corps chow hall. I do strength training and CrossFit three days on, one off. I just wanted to say that it is amazing, I no longer get tired during the day and I sleep and feel better than I think I ever have. I recover quickly from my morning workout and am fully energized for my evening CrossFit. My body fat has dropped to under 9% and my muscle mass continues to go up along with my strenth and endurance.
With some help from my girlfriend in the department of sardines, homemade beef jerky and nuts through the mail, I plan to continue the lifestyle while I’m here and see if I can hook her into it with me when I get home. If not, atleast only one of us will have exstensive medical bills when we’re old.
