I was over 275+ lbs in August 2007 at age Age 42.
I could barely walk a flight of stairs.
After one year of eating right, I lost 50 lbs.
I began feeling well enough to begin walking each day.
At 200 lbs, I began to exercise with Pilates and yoga.
I put on 25 lbs of muscle mass and then worked that down
to 188. I went from a 44 pant that did not fit to 34
waist with room. Jan 1, 2010.
I have lost over 120 pounds of fat and replaced it with
leaner muscular body in about 2 1/2 years. I did this
while enrolled in chefs school where I became a
Certified Chef. I lost 1 pound a week. It might not
sound like much, but you have to think long term. It was
during this time that I wrote the companion cookbook,
"Cook The Right Foods" which usually meant, redoing
recipes which we were taught to cook in restaurants,
plus add the ones that worked for me over the last
Lots of Hard work.
About 1 pound a week for about 2 1/2 years and I did it
by Eating and Cooking the Right Foods with a little bit
of walking and yoga.
