Overcoming Addiction Included Changing My Diet

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!

I don’t often receive video success stories, and when I do it doesn’t always work out to share them on the blog. That said, today’s video fits the bill in every way. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did. These stories always make my week.

Hi Mark, I know you have a thousand success stories a day, however I just thought you might enjoy this one today. I firmly believe that part of overcoming my addiction to alcohol and drugs was changing my diet through the Primal way of eating. The video below is my story of how I beat the odds, overcame addiction and prison, and now help others to adopt this “awesome” way of living.

Currently, I’m a personal trainer in the Fayetteville AR area, also a Nutrition educator for Natural Grocers—teaching keto and low carb and doing online nutritional consulting as well. I hope to be a Primal Health Coach soon as I pursue my next certification.

I’m hoping that others will see, if nothing else, the power that nutrition and lifestyle have over brain function to overcome addiction and addictive behaviors.

You rock bro, thanks for your time!
