I love sharing paleo lifestyle success stories because each one is another opportunity to help more people understand how easy it is to get a healthy and attractive body once you have the right perspective. Today, I would like to tell you about Christina. I believe many of you will be able to relate with the struggles she went through to get where she is today, and I hope that her example might lead some of you to change directions and stop fighting a losing battle.
This was Christina when we first met. This is also her at her fittest before paleo and responsible exercise:
When Christina was in college, around 2000, she began to become dissatisfied with her body. “Sitting in class, I noticed that my thighs were huge,” she said. “There was a girl in my class who was a runner, and she was really skinny, so I thought if I ran I would look more like her.” Let’s pause for just a second to examine Christina’s perspective at this point. As we have tried to establish many times on this blog, in our seminars, on our podcast, and in our books, sustainable improvements to aesthetics happen only though improvements in health. Once we understand this fact, goals like “I want to be skinny,” or “I want to lose weight,” turn into goals like “I want to lose fat” and “I want to be really healthy so I can be hot by accident.” Moving on.
