I  lost my wife of 36 years. She died of a sudden stroke going on 7 years ago. I was old and obese. At the time I didn't care if i lived or not. Then my first grandchild was born.
She gave me the motivation I needed to change.
Since then I've been cast into the real world.
Gone was the world of my youth.
I lost the weight and health problems! Took me 2 years

I suffered an injury a couple years ago. It got me down. I put on 25 pounds and got out of shape.
Well today is a new day. If I could bounce back from all that, I feel I can overcome this.
And only 25 pounds to lose.

Well here goes...

I've slipped back into some of the old ways.
Started drinking a little. Eating the occasional cheese cake. Eating breaded foods.
I'm getting back into my Paleo lifestyle. I'm going to lose the weight and see if I can get toned up.

I'll let you know how it's going.

Watch out for "carb creep"

Overcome carb creep...

Dan's Low Carb Journey


Hi everyone. It's been a while since I've posted to this blog.
I've been busy since losing the weight.
Because of an injury I've put on a few pounds that I'm now trying to lose.
Hey, if I can lose 160, this shouldn't be a problem.

One thing I have to watch out for is salty crunchy. I love potato chips. But they are NOT GOOD FOR YOU, no you can't eat JUST ONE.

My solution is Kale Chips and Cheese Chips. I get the salty crunchy without all the starch.
You can see how I make Kale Chips here:

Here are some pictures of the cheese chips I made yesterday.

The sudden death of my wife of 36 years from diet related causes and the birth of our first grandchild a few weeks later prompted a lifestyle change. At 56 years of age I weighed over 340 pounds. I had type 2 diabetes high blood pressure a heart condition and a gallbladder problem. I had tried diets and knew that they didn’t work. I started looking for what would work. In 30 months I had lost 158 pounds. All the health problems are gone with the weight. I have kept the weight off for going on 7 years now. I did it all without pills, doctors, dieting, exercise, or calorie counting.

My story has inspired people all over the world, I have received emails and calls from over 30 countries. I have people calling and emailing  for advice.
My friends If I can do it you can. I've spent the past several years learning, studying, gaining the knowledge I needed to turn my life around.

When I first started I went to the gym to "lose weight and get in shape". It didn't take me long to realize that the 20 something year old trainers could not relate to me, a man in his late 50s who was obese and in bad health. They had NEVER been overweight or in bad health themselves.
The nutritionist at my fitness center charges $40 an hour, she told me I knew more about nutrition than she did.

I've been there and done that.

It's a blessing to be able to help. It helps me make sense of my wifes death. She died, I lived, I got healthy and now can help others.

If I can do it at my age so can you. Let me help you.  If you feel my story can help and if you value my advice I ask that you make a donation to help support this site and give me the time to help others.

 This website is dedicated to all those who are over weight, or have health problems, and want to learn why. Why is it that you do everything you are told and STILL can't lose weight. You diet only to gain the weight back. Why is it that you don't feel like you would like to. Is it just part of getting old?
I'm going to tell you how I went from death to life. What I've learned during my 4 year study into health, diet, and nutrition, how I live now and give tips and how to information. I hope you will join me in my journey.

 The picture on the left is me at over 340 pounds, the middle picture is after an 80 pound loss, the picture on the right is me now after a total of 160 pounds lost.  If I can do it, you can do it, let me show you how.
