A few weeks ago someone on here asked how they should go about losing weight. They had marked metabolic syndrome, had been told they were borderline NIDDM, and had been put on metformin. (First line tx) They asked what they should do to go primal and to lose weight. They asked about exercise, about carbs intake, etc.
I told them that they must target their insulin resistance as "goal 1,2, and 3". I told them that they are not fighting the same animal as a normal person, because their insulin resistance wasn't the symptom of being overweight, it was the CAUSE. All notions about workouts, primal carb curves, all of that goes out the window when you are fighting the "The Big Boss" as I refer to it, insulin resistance, to my patients. I say "Most people are fighting little guys. They fight willpower, soreness from workouts, their uncooperative relatives.....you are NOT fighting a little guy. You are up against The Big Boss, and it's going to take a David to take down Goliath, not half-measures. Do you read me?"

He is pretty cute for sure ) He looks really healthy and fit. A great example, but after looking at his blog I was a bit frustrated to find that he has replaced a lot of his protein with fake food... some super protein powder or something.
Started Primal June 2012 at 148.5lbs, and 5' 1", reached goal weight in 5 months.
