This is part of an ongoing series of real life success stories from people all over the world who have been impacted by the Paleo lifestyle and The Paleo Solution. Read Alberto’s story below.
At the end of 2009 I was at my biggest ever… being 5’11 and 270lbs wasn’t fun, I never really cared about the way I ate until I realized I was just too fat to do anything “normal”. Every time I went out with friends I would come back a few hours later absolutely destroyed and with sore ankles.
At the beginning of 2010 I moved to London and joined a gym aiming to lose some chub and regain my health back, for several months I followed the common wisdom diet of whole grains low fat and low calories. I lost some weight but I also lost my social life in the process, completely obsessed about food, counting every single calorie that went into my mouth. By the end of April 2010 and thanks to a friend of mine who recommended reading yours and Mark’s book I took a paleo approach to my whole life. I ran less miles and lifted more weights, I eat only REAL foods and also found my passion for cooking (I now make some really kick-ass meals :D). The after picture was taken around the end of summer – it truly says it all.
I love this way of living and the joy of nourishing my body with real food and nutrients (it’s incredible when you enter everything into FitDay and you find out that your mineral and vitamin consumption far exceeds your daily needs).
Would like to thank Robb and everyone in this ever-growing primal community for taking the time to research and open people’s eyes.
Keep up the great work,
