Paleo Success Story – I have gone from XXXL to M shirts and from a 44 waist to 30 waist…

This amazing Paleo transformation story was emailed to me recently. Enjoy!



Trust you are well.

I would like to take this opportunity to share my success story with you…

Paleo has seriously changed my life forever…

I started my new lifestyle 19/08/2012. Since then, I have lost 50kg without the assistance of any medical intervention.

I learned about Paleo via a Podcast which I stumbled upon while searching for a way to improve my life… (Fat-Burning Man – Abel James – After only listening to one podcast, I was convinced that Paleo is for me and that it will change my life, which, fortunately for me, it did.

My life before Paleo was seriously miserable. It was almost like as if I was collecting illnesses/conditions, Gastro Esophageal Reflux, Hernia, Cellulitis, High Blood Pressure, Depression, Sleep Apnea, Insomnia, Migraine and Acne just to mention a few.

Moving around, doing physical tasks really became very difficult. Socially, I did not gel anymore. Buying clothes really become a huge problem, as I was unable to find suitable clothes that I like and in my size. Suicide almost became a daily thought…

Today, I am a complete different person. My social circle has grown from just a handful of friends to many… My cholesterol is now normal and all of my past daily illnesses/conditions (Gastro Esophageal Reflux, Hernia, Cellulitis, High Blood Pressure, Depression, Sleep Apnea, Insomnia, Migraine, Acne…) are also gone. I have gone from XXXL to M shirts and from a 44 waist to 30 waist…

My mindset about health and food has changed completely. I am a Software Engineer/Developer by trade, but am considering a new profession and adventure as a Nutritionist/Dietitian.

I am advocating Paleo on a daily basis, motivating people to follow my lead and Paleo. Paleo is not a complex lifestyle and really easy to follow.

Thank you for letting me share my story! I hope that it will motivate and encourage other people.

My photos as proof, as photos do not lie: (

And here are some of the tools I use to stay Paleo…

Paleo is the best…!!!

    You look marvelous and inspire beautifully. What courageous, self-respecting choices you have made to go from wanting to die, to dying to inspire and influence others! I wish you continued success; looks like you
    have all “the right stuff!” ( Thank you too, for the helpful links.)

    So proud of you, took a lot of self discipline and self motivation, you are the reason I made a positive mind change and I am on track again. You look gorgeous, cannot wait to see you in person again.

    You look great well done for your amazing transformation. I once was overweight and I know how hard it is to lose weight you need a lot of will power and you need to be consistent with your diet and training regime.

    Wow! What a story and great job. I’m hoping to have the same experience. You are proof that it can be done.

    Adrian, amazing transformation! Congratulations. This is the sort of story other people need when they start out with the Paleo Diet. I think people soon realise that its more than a diet, and its actually a “lifestyle” that will help them receive incredible results like yours! Again, kudos man!
