I recently returned to mountain bike racing and realized that I needed to lose some weight. I had steadily gained almost 60 pounds over the past twenty years. Even though I've always been active my diet needed some changes. My research led me to the blog and books of Mark Sisson. Mark advocates a lifestyle he calls The Primal Blueprint which is informed by ancestral health and current scientific research. Since eliminating almost all sugar and processed grains, while eating plenty of fat and protein, I now effortlessly maintain a healthy body composition without counting calories nor limiting portion sizes. This has been life changing for me and now I help others improve their lives through health coaching.
