Here is an update from our friend Dan who had a featured testimonial on the blog last year. He has now been eating paleo for over a year and sent us an update:

Good afternoon everyone at Robb Wolf! I posted my testimonial back in August and I wanted to provide you with an update to my story. February 23rd marks my 1 year anniversary of going Paleo. This has been the most life changing year I could imagine. Last February, I was 300lbs and couldn’t run a half mile without getting winded. Also my laboratory values looked like a person ready for a triple bypass. My wife and I found paleo and everything changed, as I spoke too in my original testimonial. Overall, I have lost around 80 pounds and found a solid weight at 220lbs (I’m 6’6″ tall). I’ve decreased my body fat percentage and increased muscle tone. This past fall I trained for and completed my first half marathon, which is something I never though would be possible for me to complete. I’ve kept up with my CLEAN eating habits and not only do I feel great, I’m no longer headed down the dark path to heart disease and diabetes. I’ve seen a swift decline in my triglycerides and HbA1c from my clean eating and a much needed jump in my HDL.
After 6 months of Paleo:
Trigs: 51 (yes 5-1)
I am truly blessed to have found this way of life and I hope others in need can see how much benefit they can get from simply making an effort to put the right things in their body.
Thanks a million,
Keep up the good work Dan!
