Hey Andrew, thanks for participating in a guest post! You have personally achieved
great results in weight loss, in addition to following a paleo diet what where other
aspects of your lifestyle, mentally and physical did you need to change in order to
achieve the results you have?

Great question! While the change in my diet provided much of the results, I had to be brutally
honest with myself. Left to my own devices, I tend to slowly begin cheating more and more as
time goes by, and when you couple that with a slow metabolism I will pack on pounds quickly.

It’s a percentage breakdown. If you cheat 50% of the time, you’re pretty much going to see
50% of the results you’re looking for. However, if you only cheat 5% of the time, you will
slowly start seeing 95% of the results. Keep in mind I would never advocate being perfect all
the time as I feel cheating a little is good for the body and the soul.

Why did you decide to follow the paleo diet?

At first, I decided that it would be the first diet that I would try for a month in order to write
about it on the blog. However, I started doing more research after I saw some amazing
results and after the month was over I was simply hooked! Eating whole foods with a focus on
vegetables, lean meats, eggs, etc. has moved my body to another echelon of fitness which
I’ve never been privileged to before. I wouldn’t trade it for anything now!

Did you find it fairly easy to change your eating towards eating only paleo foods?

At first it was something of an experiment which took some getting used to, but after a while
my body just felt so good that I couldn’t even imagine how I used to live eating any other way.
At first I would have huge cravings late at night, but after a while I got into a groove and my
physical performance has never been better.

In regards to training, did you noticed any benefits from following the paleo diet, i.e did
your energy levels increase allowing you to train longer?

As I was beginning to touch on in the last answer, yes, I did see some fantastic benefits in not
only my training but my overall energy level. For one thing, I feel as though my recovery time
as decreased slowly over time since starting to eat Paleo. My explosive movements have
become more so, my reflexes are heightened, and my ability to push my body to the next
level has been very evident.

As far as my energy level goes, the benefits can definitely be seen post workout. Give me 30
minutes rest and I feel like I could do it all again!
              Do you have a favorite paleo recipe?

              While I enjoy new Paleo recipes and trying new things, I typically just eat whole foods as is.
              I’ll cook some broccoli, throw on some meat, make some eggs, etc. I’m pretty easy to please
              when it comes to making foods. I guess I just get lazy when it’s time to cook!

              What tips do you have for other people who are wanting to lose weight and who are
              looking at following the paleo diet?

              Just try it. I can’t tell you how many times I hear the skeptics say, “Oh, but cavemen only lived
              until they were 30″ or “That’s the Atkins diet, he died of a heart attack”, and the funny thing is
              that those same skeptics are usually overweight and totally out of shape. I always challenge
              them to a footrace, bench press contest, pull up contest, push up contest, etc. but they never
              take me up on the offer (shocker).

              Bottom line, as one of my favorite sports analysts Jim Rome likes to put it… “Scoreboard”.
              You can rag on anything all of the time, but unless you actually try it you don’t know what it’s
              about. If something works, why would you question it? Most of the health and fitness all-stars,
              who are in peak physical condition, I deal with praise the Paleo Diet. And if you aren’t in
              shape to begin with, I don’t really want to hear your advice on health and fitness, even if
              you’ve been certified.

                    I am in the best shape and the best health of my life since
                     following the paleo diet and the recipes within the Paleo
                   Cookbooks have helped me continue to cook delicious meals
                that are paleo friendly. I have and will continue to recommended
