Dear Mark, Thank you for asking for my contribution. And thanks for your unending support, inspiration and courage that you show everyday in your writing, your offering of healthy food, and your very presence.
I was a food addict. I was unhealthy. I didn’t really care.
Fascinatingly, I had Mark’s Daily Apple on my computer for years and never place it together that it was you or that it could be of any real help to me; some cool thoughts….someday. When the stronger inkling of doing something about not feeling so well came up in me (age 65), it was the book Primal Blueprint that was there for me and that I was drawn to. Ultimately, I would need to lower my carbs even more to succeed at weight loss, but I am glad I started with your book because it talked about wonderful things like walking barefoot and volleyball on the beach with young studs. It got me feeling/thinking and opened my perspective on food and life.
The pictures above are the beginning middle and ongoing part of my keto/new lifestyle way of living. I now use fasting and lower carb eating to continue to sculpt and improve and perhaps lose a bit more. I reckon of it as reshaping and renewing now rather than aging.
I now kayak with people younger than me and train with a gyrotonic instructor a few hours a week. I am 19 months into my new journey.
Once I made the choice and choice to do keto, and my body switched to burning stout as my fuel instead of carbohydrates, which for me took 3-4 months, when it became simple for me and has been a joy ever since. Let’s see…..eat this piece of bread or FEEL FANTASTIC. No chance, especially since I can have my own bread which I make with all organic ingredients.
I delight in my life so much more. Food is this glorious celebration after fasting for a bit. I continue to read and tweek things, and the adventure will never end.
This final picture is just for fun. I feel playful now and frisky. Not sure if the world is ready for me……..
Submitted with so much JOY!!!
