Author Information

I am a New Zealand registered nurse and nutritionist (Grad Cert Sci: nutrition, Massey Univ). I am a Certified Zone Instructor, and have worked teaching Zone diet principles to hundreds of clients over the last 10 years. More recently after finding that eating Paleo food choices was the "icing on the cake" health wise, I have become a Paleo enthusiast and teacher. Follow me on twitter @juliannejtaylor

Long Hard Road out of Hell or Why Fat Girl went Primal (an inspiring story from Robbwolf.com)

Robb Wolf has just posted a fantastic story of a journey from ill health to wellness, and a nutrition journey that includes the Zone diet and Paleo diet. Told with humour and heart, it gave me goosebumps. Thanks Cheryl for sharing this with Robb (and the world):

“Being a little OCD I have a strict rule about calling before you drop by my house. So on December 25, 2009 as I lay in bed in agony from a migraine that was so indescribably painful that I actually hoped that I wouldn’t wake up, Death knocked on my door. But as he hadn’t called first he did not gain admittance. He’s been pissed ever since. I can’t say I blame him. After all, I was asking for him.

But I’m getting ahead of my story.

I’ve spent the majority of my life in a weight war. As a result I’ve tried everything there is to try: popular methods, fad diets, potions, pills, voodoo, I was even a vegetarian for seven years. You name it, I tried it. All to no avail, of course. Then in 2004 a friend of mine lost 80 lbs by joining a gym and getting a personal trainer. She was thin, defined, energetic, and so enthusiastic about her accomplishment that I bought into it. I joined the same gym (though at a different location) and hired a personal trainer. I spent the next four years doing everything he told me to do and eating what he told me to. I would lose 30 lbs only to gain it back. It was a yo-yo diet with machines added in.”

The rest here:

Robb Wolf’s new book “The Paleolithic Solution” is a must read.
