The challenge was always getting them to take action and commit to living healthier lives.
    I'm curious if those people, once they practiced what they preached, did they reach normal?

    I exercise nearly every day. I bicycle commute, take walks, run sprints, do core fitness exercises, hike strenuously, backpack on my vacations. I eat as close to perfection on the Primal Blueprint as I can. I eat small portions, stay away from snacks, never eat after dinner. Lately I don't drink wine or eat cheese or chocolate regularly like I used to. And yet if you saw me you would not see a normal athletic female body shape. I wonder what it takes because just letting the results take care of themselves doesn't do it for me.

    I really am curious if your obese clients really achieved a normal body that looked like it never had known a weight problem. How long did it take? I've been doing the PB for a year now.

    The key is not to compare yourself physically with others, but look at your personal journey and strive to be the best you can be. Assessing how you feel is equally important, how are your energy levels, do you approach your workouts with dread or with enthusiasm, do you have fun and have a great attitude. Every client I had, that was able to change to a healthier lifestyle was unique and obtained great results over varying amounts of time. I still believe you need to ensure your net daily calories are below your daily requirement and that you keep your carbs under 100 gms per day to ensure fat loss (with dips into VLC and using IF from time to time). You should be congratulated on your commitment, keep experimenting to determine what works for you an have faith in the process.

    Dude. Didn't you start this thread so that you could compare people physically to each other? Or did I mis-read the OP?
