    Movement is an integral component of the Primal lifestyle, so please, don't neglect it!

    Never, Ever Give Up. Arthur's Inspirational Transformation! - YouTube

    This guy is doing yoga as put forth by Diamond Dallas Page, yeah, the wrestler! I actually saw him commenting on a panel for an MMA program and he mentioned he mostly just does yoga nowadays, and that it helped him regain his health from all the years of wrestling. I checked out his page briefly, and it seems like he is pretty into slow movement (super slow push-ups, for instance) but enough words, that video is very inspirational. The guy just seems so likeable too, you know?

    Note: I've no idea what type of nutrition, if any, is advertised by DDP. Personally, I don't think it's all that important.
    I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.

          I can't believe he lost all that weight simply by doing yoga, he must have changed his diet as well.

              I wonder why anyone one would believe any kind of CW after seeing that video. That is REAL bravery in our modern age. Inspirational and very humbling.

                Of course diet is important.

                  That was awe-inspiring. His after photos look incredible, like he's an entirely different human being. Which I suppose he is, in a way. I choked up a little when he started running right at the camera with that look of determination on his face.

                  He deserves all the happiness in the world for turning himself around like that.

                  EDIT: I can't help wondering what he was eating during that time though...
                  Today I will: Eat food, not poison. Plan for success, not settle for failure. Live my real life, not a virtual one. Move and grow, not sit and die.

                    Nah, when he started running I definitely got choked up.

                      I said "whatever type of diet DDP is advertising, if any, is not important" Clearly I think diet is important, or I wouldn't be here.

                      I mostly put that out there because some people automatically align yoga with veganism or vegetarianism, and I didn't want this awesome video to turn into bickering over that stuff.

                          Was about to post this link, this is a very quickly spreading video
                          I blubbed man tears.

                          A quick google suggests the diet is gluten and dairy free.

                            WOW....I have no excuses! This made me cry too and was so amazing! I have learned to not trust anyone who says you can't do something just like his doctors told him.
                            I'm too stubborn to give up so I keep on trying.
