Don’t give up, the time will pass anyway.  It is a lot of work to be healthy.. yes.  BUT, it is a lot of worknot be healthy too... you just don’t get any of the feel good benefits.

Mike Cavanagh:  I started the \"Paleo\" diet a about a year ago.  I had listened to a podcast (econtalk) with Art Devanny about the problems with high carb diets and with gluten.  So, without understanding I was starting a paleo diet I just started cutting out all wheat products and really cut down on starchy foods- no rice, potatoes, etc.  I also started exercising.  Nothing crazy, just a simple dumbbell workout that hardly made me sweat.

I immediately dropped about 10 pounds (just a couple weeks) going from about 220 to 210.  Hovered there for a while, then the weight just slowly melted off.  My weight now fluxuates between 189 and 193.

I used to be a gym rat, and although I was Fit, I was also Chubby.  I could never lose the fat, but then I was still washing down my pizza with a few beers.  Now I eat huge salads, snack on salomi and nuts (love almonds) and don't shy away from bacon or fatty rib eye steaks.  Also eat as much veggies as I can.

I also benefit from being very active, walk when I play golf (about a six mile walk), do my own yard work, play lots with my daughter- Don't watch too much TV!

Good luck.

P.S. the Gillette Mack 3 Turbo leave a smooth finish- and it has a cool name.  I recommend it to the looser.

Bahahahahahahahaaaa - LOVE the P.S. Mike!  And your story is great also.

Thanks for sharing and for listening.  Your advice is sound and helpful~Carol
