Boy oh boy, do we have a great success story to share! The person involved in this story is 43 year old David Heath who is a previous Best Practice Personal Training member. Read what David has to say below:
“I thought you could pat yourself on the back for some habits from my Brisbane days. I always remember you telling me “you can’t out-train a bad diet….“, so I’ve finally got around to doing something about it (after my wife, Narelle, said she wanted to do something as she had been feeling lethargic etc). Not advocating one particular diet over another or anything (I still have my Precision Nutrition/examine.com feeds directly feeding into my inbox) but Narelle landed on whole30.com as it didn’t seem too ‘left of centre’/extreme.
I simply ate fresh fruit & veg + meat and gave up dairy/sugar/alcohol/processed grains for 30 days (& threw the scales away) to see what happened. I definitely haven’t skimped on portion sizes & have enjoyed cooking up eggs/mushrooms/tomatoes/salmon for most breakfasts! Always feeling full so not a starvation diet. Well today was day 31 so I actually weighed/measured myself and was pretty amazed at the results: 66.5kgs, 77.5cm waist – so dropped ~6kgs & 5-6cm off my waistline. I don’t think I’ve had such a low weight/waist measurement since early uni days. I think I got to 80cm whilst in Brisbane working with Best Practice but definitely not as low as 77.5cm.
I am still riding regularly (200-250km/week) & started lifting weights again so keeping the exercise up (I still miss the Computrainer though…). Fitness is definitely good although I need to keep on top of the weights.”
