“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”
Thank you so much for your blog. I am an avid reader for the past 5 months, and using your techniques in conjunction with a Paleo style diet has helped me to lose over 50 pounds and regain much vitality.
When I lose motivation, I find it again with your writing. I wish you the best.
This is really what it’s all about. Somebody sheds over 50 pounds, and, in the process, finds a vitality that was once thought forever lost. I would imagine that so many new doors have been opened for this individual.
50 pounds! Just contemplate, for a moment, the magnitude of that amount of weight. I know we all hear wild weight-loss numbers tossed around in the media so often that we become numb — jaded even — to what that loss represents in the way of improved health and quality of life for the person having lost the weight. In Jeremy’s case though, this weight loss (and even more to come) will be permanent, because he’s made a lifestyle change. No mind-numbing (and unsustainable) measuring, weighing, timing, consumption logging, or counting calories, points or trading friggin’ pokemon cards/tokens for edible (or not so) morsels. No misery, no depression; no rebound weight gain. No, Jeremy is living real life, and beginning to realize the phenotype that he was truly destined to express.
And note, too, that this is not my program that Jeremy is following — no more so than he’s following my program for opposable thumb function or bipedalism. No, Jeremy is simply eating (and moving?) in the way that the evolution of his ancestors dictated. The success of this program was written in his genes long before I ever came on the scene.
You can follow Jeremy on Twitter, here. Give him a follow, and some encouragement every now and again. And if you haven’t yet caught the Twitter fever, sign up and check it out. The benefits of Twitter can’t be explained, really — they just have to be experienced. Believe me, you’ll enjoy it. And this endorsement comes from someone who was adamently against the whole “micro-blog” phenomena until I was mercilessly shamed into jumping in. In short, I’m sure glad I did.
And hey, keep up the good work, Jeremy!
