Back on March 4th of this year I weighed in at 213 lbs. and decided to get my health and weight under control. I was coming up on my 60th birthday in April and wanted to get back under 200 lbs. After doing some research I decided on a Paleo diet and a Wholistic Fitness program and have been amazed at the results. I would like to give a shout out to Steve Ilg whose book Total Body Transformation embodies the training system he calls Wholistic Fitness that I have embraced with great results. I am fairly strict (90% Paleo) and have more than surpassed my goal losing 45 lbs (now weighing 168) and feel amazing. I don't have any before pictures of me, as I was somewhat embarrassed to have any pictures taken with my shirt off, but here are a couple of recent photos. I still have some improvement to make but not a bad start.
It would be great to hear from any one else out there in their 60s or older who have had great results following the Paleo Diet and exercise lifestyle.

Nice job...you look awesome, happy, and healthy! Congrats.
Thanks! Appreciate the compliments!
You are looking much better than all my 60+ friends! Great job. You should be proud.
What do you eat and drink most days? Any cheats?
You're just a young whippersnapper. My 86 year old Dad has recently gone primal and is doing great. And my 81 year old best friend too. Both were diabetic, on statins and BP meds. Meds are gone as are all symptoms of diabetes for both of them.
Never to late to make a change for the better.

In case you are wondering about exercise I do one 1 hour run a week, 1 interval session of sprints or hill repeats, 2 days a week I jog a half mile over to a park and do a variety of pull ups and chin ups, sit ups and push ups in a circuit format 4 sets and then jog home - all body weight exercises. In addition I do High Performance Yoga 2 or 3 times per week and recently began meditating consistantly. A couple of days a week I go for a 3 mile or longer walk or hike. I have taken a break from weight training for about 8 months but will soon re-introduce it to my fitness routine.
