  • Johnny767, your avatar is appropriate because all I could think was "OMG it's Daniel Craig's Primal Twin!" I think I scrolled between your before and after pic about 10x; the change in your face is unbelievable...and yeah, the body too *blush*

          • Hi All,

            Last year at this time I changed my lifestyle. With encouragement from a coworker and indirectly comments in a newspaper online I investigated The Ancestral Health Movement. I read the science behind the benefits of Low Carb High Fat, and High Intensity Interval Training. I chose LCHF over strict Paleo and Primal. I increased my workouts with my trainer to twice a week, incorporated occasional sprinting, and have recently added Intermittent Fasting. I read tons on Marks Daily Apple and The Eating Academy. Here are the benefits I've experienced: My middle of the night insomnia is much improved. I no longer am a slave to hunger, I eat only when hungry, at times fasting through breakfast. Minimal snacking. I have lost 20 lbs (all in the first 6 months). My body composition has completely changed. Strength gains in workouts. My skin is softer with fewer blemishes. I have cut out processed foods, sugar, and refined carbs. I eat meat, fish, vegetables, berries, full fat fermented dairy-yogurt, creme fraiche and cheese, butter, nuts, dark chocolate, tea and coffee, and occasional alcohol.

            I've presented some of my journey previously, but here again is the before:

            Thanks for everyone's contributions to this great site and to Mark Sisson for making this so understandable and doable.

            Best.
