Family Loses 335 Pounds: A Piano Family Update

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-1-2My name is Jennifer Piano, wife of David Piano, and our family took on the Primal lifestyle about two years ago. We started shortly after finding out we were pregnant with our last child.

Before taking on the Paleo lifestyle I had suffered from depression for many, many years and was addicted to crystal meth for six years. After being saved from the addiction of meth, I replaced that addiction with food, slowly eating myself to a enormous 310+ pounds.

I was diagnosed with severe rheumatoid arthritis, high blood pressure, and was borderline diabetic. At this point I knew something had to change if I wanted to live a long healthy life for myself and my family. It wasn’t until then that my husband’s cousin introduced him to Mark’s Daily Apple and the Paleo lifestyle.

My son Matthias, who at the time was only two years old, weighed in at 71 pounds. He didn’t have the energy to play and always had an upper respiratory infection. Since changing our eating habits, he too has lost an incredible amount of weight. At almost five years old, he now weighs 54 pounds and has an enormous amount of energy.


As a family, we were able to lose roughly 335 pounds. I lost 180 pounds and just recently reached my weight goal of 130 pounds. Went from a size 24 to now a size 4. Now all that’s left to do is tone, tone and more toning. I thank you for your help and for your website!! And I know that with your website you will inspire others to reach their weight loss goals! Thank you for all that you do!!
