About two years ago I sent you the below testimonial about my son Nestor’s incredible progress using the Paleo template and I wanted to provide an update. You posted his story here: Paleo: AWESOME for Teens!
Yesterday, Nestor did some clothes-shopping, something he has never been especially keen on, and when we got home he was excited to show me what he bought. I’d been watching him move around the house for months in jeans so loose that he had to either hold them up as he moved, or cinch them with a belt that gathered and gapped the waistband. Those jeans were a 42″ waist. He described taking his choices into the fitting room (38s) and learning that the smaller sizes he’d picked out were too big! “I’m a 36 in pants and a regular large in shirts!” he announced proudly, and when he walked into the room in his new clothes I just couldn’t believe it. His new leanness had been camouflaged by his big, old clothes, and the lean, young man that stood before me was almost unrecognizable.
He asked me to take a picture, and I asked him to share it with me so that I could share it with you. =)
Here he is, 2 years later, he just finished his Freshman year of college and his only fitness is a twice-weekly HIT and heavy-lifting workout after classes.
He still has a little way to go, he wants to be leaner and to build more muscle-mass– but he’s happier, more energetic and more confident than I have ever seen him. I’m one very proud mom and I’m excited to share his progress with the Paleo community.

Wow, what a transformation! I love success stories, and it’s especially nice to see younger people making positive changes. Not only is he healthier, but also happier and more confident. So great to hear!
