A note from Billy:
So why do I care? Many people close to me know that I have lost a lot of weight in the last 3 years. I have more energy than I did at 18 and more importantly, I can keep up with my kids.
I started exercising back in August of 2011 after realizing that I was spending almost every spare moment of my day sitting on the couch, watching TV and snacking on chips or candy. My total cholesterol was over 400. I could not walk up a flight of stairs without feeling like I was dying. In fact, I was dying, quickly.
So after the exercise started, I lost about 30 lbs than hit a plateau. On top of my weight loss stopping, I injured my knee and had to stop running. I moved my exercise to a gym setting and lost another 10-15 lbs, but quickly hit another plateau and began to lose motivation.
Around January or February of 2013 a friend introduced me to a Facebook page called "Just East Real Food" and something called the Paleo Lifestyle. I was frustrated with the fact that I was no longer losing weight and my injuries were preventing me from exercising very much (not that it was helping), so I decided to try it.
I began experimenting with many new foods and getting rid of all processed foods in my diet. I stopped drinking all sodas, sports drinks or sugar loaded drinks. My appetite actually decreased and my energy level increased. It seemed to be working.
Several months went by where I did NO exercise. On a trip to the doc with one of my kids, I decided to step on the scale. I had somehow lost another 10-15lbs without doing anything besides eating. No portion control. No calorie counting. No shakes. No pills. All I did was eat tons of delicious food.
In a nutshell, that is the goal of this page. I'd love to teach men to live healthy lifestyles by just eating real healthy (but tasty) food.
