Gary beat his food addiction and lost 86 pounds
I was 260 pounds and addicted to food, especially sweets and desserts. I would overeat and get seconds and thirds until I felt absolutely miserable. In my twenties I took up bicycling, which helped me lose about 40 pounds. Unfortunately, I didn’t have good eating habits established to maintain the weight loss. After a bike ride, I would reward my efforts with junk food. Then, I began working full-time, going to college, and taking care of my family. Due to lack of time, I quit riding my bike and put all the weight back on.
I met Emily Boller through some friends and was inspired by her weight loss story. I read Eat To Live and was impressed with the health and nutrition facts in the book. It gave me the necessary encouragement to lose weight again, because I was motivated to live a healthy, long, and medication-free life. I followed the six week plan in Eat To Live and experienced tremendous results in weight loss and well-being.
Now, I lost 86 pounds and weigh 174 pounds, am energetic, and feel great. I am back to riding my bike almost every day, and I’m even planning a long distance bike trip. In addition to bicycling, I’ve started doing push-ups every night. When I started I was lucky to accomplish two push-ups. Now I am up to doing two sets of 30. I hope to get to 100 without stopping. I want to live to be a hundred years old without medications or radical medical intervention, and I want to still be riding my bike at that age. I now believe I can do this; I now have the tools to make this a reality.
