Fearing for his life, Daniel lost an amazing 152 pounds and his whole life has drastically changed for the better
At 29 years old, I weighed 355 pounds. I was miserable, and feared for my life. After the birth of my second son, I decided that I wanted to live a long life, and given my habits and family history, that was unlikely.
I began by eliminating all processed foods and limiting refined sugars. After a few months, and about 20 pounds lost, I started to learn more and more about nutrition. My father had read Eat to Live which was recommended to him by his general practitioner. I decided to give it a shot, and that kicked my weight loss into high gear.
Now I have lost 150 pounds! There is not one area of my life that hasn’t been positively impacted by my weight loss and lifestyle change. My social, professional and even intimate life all changed for the better. I can now play with my children without getting winded. I can now run 4 miles under 10 minutes a mile, when in the past, going up the one flight of stairs to my apartment would leave me winded. I can bike 40-50 miles as if it’s nothing.
The world has opened up to me. I live in a diverse neighborhood in Queens, NY. Strangers, of all cultures who’ve witnessed my progress stop me constantly with words of encouragement, and requests for advice, which I am elated to share. I feel as if my entire identity has changed for the better.
