Hey Jake & Zack,
Thank you for turning me on to Relentless Roger & the Caveman doctor. Between your podcasts & theirs, I'm about 90% Paleo & loving it. In 2009 I was 40 years old & 145lbs. Im only 5ft 1in and I was NOT carrying it well. I joined the Y & worked out like a maniac. I went to low fat/low calorie diet & I lost 30 lbs in 6 months. The best thing about that experience was that I learned to eat clean & get active. I was even a success story in a local magazine. (Link below) That was great but as soon as I stopped doing hours of cardio & keeping my calories super low, I'd gain a few lbs. It started to get miserable. Then I watched Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. Started doing juice fasts. That worked well but the pounds came back between fasts. Best take away from that: micro-nutrients are super important. When I found you guys I was still struggling to keep calories & fat low. But I followed along with you & have been experimenting with Paleo all summer. I love it!! I'm like Jake - 90%. But I can eat way more food, workout way less & maintain my weight. I hover around 122 & I'm somewhat satisfied with that. I stopped distance running & doing hours of cardio after listening to Roger's podcast. I do sprints, heavy lifting & occasional boot camp classes. I've been at it for several months & I'm pretty dang happy. Every once in a while I do too much non-Paleo eating & lbs reappear quickly. Intermittent fasting has been great to shed a few lbs & get back on track. Tons of other health benefits with IF. Look into it. Just wanted to say thanks & keep the podcasts coming. You're both very inspiring & lots of fun.
