It’s Friday, everyone! And that means another Primal Blueprint Real Life Story from a Mark’s Daily Apple reader. If you have your own success story and would like to share it with me and the Mark’s Daily Apple community please contact me here. I’ll continue to publish these each Friday as long as they keep coming in. Thank you for reading!
Hi, I’m Fisher, at my heaviest I was about 275 pounds.
From the beginning of my life I was always very active. I was always playing sports and my main discipline was martial arts, specifically Taekwondo and Tang Soo Do. Even after I graduated from college I was 150 pounds and a golf professional.
Shortly after I began my career as a golf professional, I became very ill with pneumonia. I went from running three miles a day in 20 minutes and benching twice my weight, to not being able to walk five paces without collapsing. Even after my recovery from the pneumonia, my lungs were still far from working efficiently. I was on the shelf for years. During this time I was eating with no restrictions. Anything was okay, so I soon began to put on the pounds.
