Rebel Musician Goes Primal After Years of Hard Living

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!

real life stories stories 1 2Dear Mark,

Here follows a detailed timeline of how I came across MDA and your book The Primal Blueprint along with more details about my health history:

I was born in Houston, Texas and adopted by a family of Czech origin. I was diagnosed with hypoglycemia as a kid. I don’t so much buy into that diagnosis. I think I was just bored and constrained within the typical public school system. However, unbeknownst to me at the time, the breads, kolaches, pastries and potatoes that were so prevalent in my mother’s native food were spiking my blood pressure to the moon.

I was always involved in gymnastics, competitive swimming, baseball and basketball as a child, so I was never really overweight. Since I was adopted, my mother, who is very wise, took the time to cook differently for me and I ate a lot of seafood and vegetables growing up.

When I got to college I started eating out a lot and since I was physically active and involved in Jeet Kun Do and Brazilian Jiu-jitsu I was always in relatively good shape. However, a few pounds a year adds up after twenty years, and at the age of forty I found myself creeping up on the scale to 240 pounds. I am 6’2” so I was able to hide it fairly well with a big frame, but I felt sluggish. I was living a musician lifestyle and waking up every day at 11 AM.

I have a good friend who is authentic and real. I went to see him in Vegas, and the minute I walked in his door he told me I didn’t look good with three chins and I would never attract a decent woman fat. He has a way with words and I decided to take control of my life and my fitness. My friend and his wife had lost forty pounds a piece utilizing the Atkins diet. I understand enough about psychology to realize that I could simply model their behavior and achieve similar results.

I did and I lost a lot of weight and I felt a lot better. However, I found the shakes and the bars that had the fake sugar in them to taste very repulsive. I believe how you do anything is how you do everything. I have dedicated my life to music and consider it a fine art. I try to make all my relationships a masterpiece and consider friendship a fine art. I was happy with the results of the Atkins approach, but found many of the meals and supplementation boring, and far from fine art when it comes to cuisine.

I have a lot of friends who are foodies and gourmet chefs and I knew there had to be a better way. One night I Googled “no carb recipes” and MDA popped up in my search. I was hooked from the front page and once I started taking a look at the recipes my mouth began to water. Real food in its natural state, no strange ingredients, nothing in a box or can – I was hooked.

I was using Evernote at the time and I copied recipe after recipe from your site. I fell in love with eggs all over again. I had such misinformation about eggs. You mentioned on your site how every grandmother who lived to a ripe old age had that can of bacon fat on top of her stove that she cooked everything in. Mark, that was my grandmother Sophie Slansky. I loved all her food as a kid and she grew up on farm.

Your site elegantly and with fortitude debunked every foolish myth there was about food. Fat, including animal fat, is essential to our well-being, and you have the moxie and the courage to step out on the edge and challenge all of these myths.

The number one thing I learned from MDA and that I encourage everyone who wants to get lean and mean with a great low body-fat percentage is to understand this: 90% of all body composition begins with what you put in your mouth. You could join all the gyms in the world, buy every ab machine, personal trainer and run thirty miles a day and never have the body composition of someone who adheres to the aforementioned principle.

EricLean02

Since I started the Primal approach I have woken up every day for the last two years at 5:30 in the morning. I crave my fennel and dill omelet I learned from you. I crave poached eggs, I look forward to breakfast. I honestly in the deepest depths of my soul can not imagine how anyone could convince me that they honestly crave a bowl of oatmeal or Captain Crunch.

The differences I have seen are incredible. All my friends tell me I look fifteen years younger. It’s completely revived my music career as a performer. There aren’t that many fat rock stars. I can see my abs for the first time since I was fourteen years young. I can’t believe how much I enjoy what I eat. A typical day for me might be a vegetable omelet for breakfast, grilled chicken wings with scrumptious crispy skin for lunch along with a side of celery and real blue cheese, then at dinner a prime dry aged rib-eye with cauliflower mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus, a glass or three of Cabernet, and a piece of 85% cocoa chocolate.

I feel completely satiated and content after every meal.

Here is a video I made featuring me preparing my Primal Sushi Rolls, which are really not sushi at all. They are made with beef and asparagus. They are always a huge hit at parties!

Your post about drinking ten to twelve big glasses of water a day being ridiculous was spot on as well. I was drinking way too much water before I found your site.

This is the greatest thing that drew a rebel musician like myself to your site. Just about everything on MDA is counterintuitive. I found that to be where the truth lies these days you have to seek it out. That food pyramid they stuffed down our throats all those years is a complete joke.

I also want to note that Adelulf – my beloved, non neutered, all black male German Shepherd – eats Primal as well. Every morning I walk out into the yard and give him two fresh eggs in the shell. I set them down in the yard and it’s like Easter. Even as a puppy he knew what to do. He carefully picks up the egg, puts it in his mouth, takes it where he wants, pokes a hole in the shell with his canines and slurps up every last drop of both eggs. He eats raw chicken with the bones, turkey necks, liver, kidneys, and raw beef. His teeth are completely white, and his coat incredibly shiny. If I had a dollar for every so called animal lover, dog expert and veterinarian who told me my dog is going to die from salmonella poisoning from the raw eggs and choke on the raw bones I would be retired on a beach in Hawaii right now drinking margaritas. Here’s a picture of me and my dog where I landed at about twelve to thirteen percent body fat.

Thanks Mark. Pardon the long email, but I have a lot of deep appreciation for what you are doing.

All the best and Grok on, Mark.

You want comments? We got comments:

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. Rock on Erik!

    Great story and I love that your dog is on board with your new lifestyle too. My pitbull is also a big MDA fan :)

    Oh and can I come round to yours for dinner – sushi rolls? cauliflower mash with steak? YES PLEASE :)

        Anyway those skinny rock stars legs look like parentheses and don’t get me started on skinny jeans

        Eric Keyes wrote on May 18th, 2012
        • Skinny jeans are a total turn off. I mean, I always wonder where the men who wear them store everything. Probably not the effect they had in mind.

    • oh yeah. awesome dog! i’ve got two primal dogs myself. though I admit, I use primal dog food. I’ve given them the occassional raw egg here and there, but I’m not so bold to use raw meats.

      Steve L. wrote on May 18th, 2012
      • Steve — your dogs aren’t eating primal if they aren’t eating raw. Go here: http://www.barfaustralia.com/what_is_barf.php?pid=1

        Your dogs (and cats too!) will adore you for it.

        Cave Grrrrl wrote on May 18th, 2012
      • What do you give your dog as ‘primal dog food’? I have been thinking about the ‘good quality’ (read more expensive brand) but commercial dog food my dog gets -and feeling worried. Since going primal myself, I have given my dog less commercial chow and more other stuff (raw and cooked liver, bacon rinds, meat, raw and cooked eggs, fish skins – plus veggies, carrot peels, whole carrots, lettuce, cucumbers, etc. I give her a fish oil capsule now and again)

        I read about raw feeding your dog, but it seemed a bit messy and complicated. Is there something in between giving a whole, raw, unplucked chicken and grain rich dog kibbles from the supermarket?

        I haven’t tried giving the raw egg in the shell. Sounds fun to watch!

        Violet wrote on May 18th, 2012
        • We fed our Doberman a raw meaty bones (RMB) diet for years and she had superior health. It isn’t as hard as people think. You just go buy whatever meat is a good deal at the moment. Give to dog. Repeat as needed. Our girl ate chicken quarters, fresh fish, rabbit, turkey legs, eggs, pretty much anything. Raw liver was a favorite, but she drew the line at kidney.

          Still, if that is too much work, it is very easy to get a grain-free kibble. In fact, I think all dogs should be on grain-free kibble at a minimum. You’ll be amazed at the health conditions that will fix themselves once you take rice and corn out of a dog’s diet (a human’s too for that matter.)

          Shawn wrote on May 19th, 2012
        • Hello, Violet. I found MDA, and my husband and I started the Primal lifestyle because of our German Shepherd pup. Our first GSD lived to be 13, and was healthy until the last two months of his life, he was always on a raw diet. Go to rawfed.com and Leerburg Kennels for information.

          Andrea wrote on May 19th, 2012
        • Its important that the dog gets some veggies. They have the same basic digestive tracks as Wolfs which eat the intestines of their kills and get their veggies/fiber that way.

          Check out Orijen dog food for the best grain free kibble.

  10. I didn’t no oyster sauce was gluten free? Or is that a special brand? I would love to have oyster sauce again. I miss it. I know its pretty high in sugar content tho.

    thisisspeedy wrote on May 18th, 2012
    • This one seems to be gluten free. Wok Mei All Natural Oyster Sauce. Google it. I’m not sure how to find out the sugar content, but I’m dying to try these “sushi” rolls.

      Eric wrote on May 18th, 2012
      • From HonestFoods.com, Wok Mei Oyster Sauce Ingredients: Evaporated cane juice, salt, natural corn starch, caramel color, natural oyster extract, distilled vinegar. All Natural. Gluten Free.

        I think the cane juice and corn starch make it non-primal … that’s why I’ve stopped using it.

        HappyBiker wrote on May 18th, 2012
    • I know it probably has some gluten and sugar but I find that as long as it’s in the 20% of my 80-20 rule. I feel just fine. I treat it like I do beer. Everything in moderation, including moderation.

    Ida Palma wrote on May 18th, 2012
    • I know, when I would eat those fake sugars, I found something very interesting. The chemicals in them send a signal to the brain that sugar is coming so that you experience it on a psychological level. However it never comes, so it kind of tricks you. Then you end up craving it even more on a biological level. That is why diet coke is words that the regular ones. Also notice how people who drink diet sodas just keep drinking and drinking them. They never get the sugar

  17. Love this one! Primal doggy!! Kinda makes me sad though because the dog I grew up with was recently put down (at the age of 14) but if we had fed her more of a primal natural diet I’m sure she would of lived with better health. It was a cocker-spaniel and she had eye problems (cataracts most cockers do) but I wonder if proper nutrition could of prevented that…of course no vet would tell us if it would. Just like big pharma, getting people sick to get paid I guess.

  19. Couple of things. Big congrats on your transformation! You look mahvelous! Also, if somebody could figure out how to make low carb kolaches, they would win a Nobel Prize. Every time I drive through west, I gaze at my favorite kolache place (Not Czech Stop) and drool. Finally, I am glad Atkins worked for you, but I have to correct a myth. Atkins makes bars and shakes available to those who want them. You never have to consume one bar or shake. Collette, their nutritionist, will tell you the same. You can be just as creative on their approach as you can eating paleo/priimal. I lost the bulk of my weight on Atkins too (I’m down 97 pounds) but as I read more about the harmfulness of legumes, gluten, dairy and vegetable oils, I gradually shifted to paleo. Atkins eventually allows for that stuff to come back in, but again, you never HAVE to add it back in. Sorry to be a nit-picker, but I just get so frustrated when I see Atkins mis-characterized. If you think about it, people like Mark Sisson and Robb Wolf stand on Robert Atkins’ shoulders.
    Again, kudos on you loss, dude! Keep up the good fight.

    Brandon wrote on May 18th, 2012
    • Thanks Brandon and I agree. Atkins was a great man. Haha that’s cool about West. What is your favorite Kolache place? On my next gig in Austin, I will stop there and get my Mom some :-)

      Eric Keyes wrote on May 18th, 2012
      • Geriks. There is also another gas station just south of Czech Stop on the feeder road that has superior kolaches than Czech Stop. Their ham and cheese one has the ham ground up and mixed with the cheese. Oh so good.

        Brandon wrote on May 18th, 2012

    I found your comment about craving and Captain Crunch interesting — true, I never crave sugar cereal now, but before, if I would have a small bowl of cereal, I would instantly want a second bowl as soon as I finished the first. It got to the point of anxiety when I knew I was eating the last spoonful. That’s when I knew that type of food wasn’t good for me.

    And good on you for raising a primal pupster! Man & dog in perfect primal harmony. Beautiful.

    I adopted an 11 year old chocolate labrador, who thanks to a diet of pasta, was a stomach on legs and in a bad state. I put him on a raw meaty bones diet and he transformed within months. You can read his story on my website.

    Funnily enough, it was researching his doggie RMB diet that knocked some sense into my own head and I started the journey that ultimately brought me here to primal.

    BTW – are you making ‘rock & sushi rolls’?!

        • Diabetes melitus is Latin for sweet (sugar) urine. So I guess we’re actually calling it urine.

  38. I first found MDA because of the recipes too. A Facebook friend posted a link to a Primal recipe she had made for dinner the night before, and it looked so good, I had to follow the link. Well, I’ve been hooked on the site since then (about a year ago now), and have been completely Primal for about four weeks. Congrats on finding what you were searching for!

  40. I did Atkins and shared your disgust for processed low carb food. Congrats on your success.
