Hi my name is Steven Waddell.  For twelve years of my life I suffered because of childhood obesity.  At ten years old I began packing on weight and within a year would become obese.  By the time I was 18 I was 320lbs.

(Read the original story from the New York Post about my accident along with a before and after picture of my weight loss here.)

Then, one day, at 21 years old my life changed.  I was electrocuted for several minutes on a 750 volt beam that allegedly kills people in a mere 20 seconds.  I got out lucky with only my right arm being burnt, but it was still a long recovery process.

In order to repair my damaged body I was told eat a diet very high in animal products.  So, being a broke college student, I went for the cheapest most palpable food I could afford, pork sausage!  Unbeknownst to me at that time,  I was following a paleo diet with a cheat day here and there.

I always thought of myself as a “Big Guy.”  That was my identity, but after one year of eating like this, I lost almost 100lbs!  I remember looking in the mirror one day and thinking,steven1_3382

“I’ve been eating a pretty steady diet of sausage and bacon.  Why do I look like this? Why has that little voice inside my head that was telling me I’m hungry all the time shut off.”  Something isn’t right.”

I did my research and stumbled upon The Paleo Diet .  The principles made sense to me.  If we eat like our ancestors, we will experience vibrant health, weight loss and better athletic/mental performance.

Ten years later, I’ve picked up paleo cooking and do my best to make all my own meals, and hopefully document them for you guys!  I work from home, running a few small accounting departments and occasionally model.

I Promise You Will Learn:

  • How to cook an awesome steak.

  • How to eat butter and bacon to remain fit and healthy.

  • Excellent easy to prepare gluten-free recipes that leave you filling satisfied and fantastic!

Truly,

Steven

  1. Congrats on your success and health. I just recently lost a significant amount of weight and I started blogging about it as well in hopes to provide tools, suppor to those who are struggling like I did. Thank you for sharing.

  2. I don’t even know you, but I’m proud of your terrific accomplishments! I’m in a similar journey. You’re ONE OF MY INSPIRATIONS!

  3. Steven, what you have accomplished for yourself and have gone to inspire in others is beyond wonderful. Email me if you are interested in a guest spot on my blog for a series I am getting ready to roll out. Contributors have been bowled over by the response from my readers. Holistic Wayfarer at gmail.

  4. Wow. Your story is amazing! I can’t wait to read more!

  5. Amazing guy. Great experiences that have only taught you valuable lessons :)

  6. Woah! What a crazy story! Your weight loss achievement in itself is amazing but the fact that you’re even alive and with us todays after being electrocuted is even more amazing! By the way, you look good now but I bet if you had taken model shots of yourself as a plus size man, you would still have looked just as good. =)

      Haha, at 6’5 and 205lbs I’m still “plus size” or as the industry calls it for us guys “big and tall” I still get work here and there, but it’s really my height that keeps me out of it. You want to be 6″ to 6″2 as a guy.

  7. Congratulations on your weight loss story! You have come such a long way and it’s certainly something to be proud of. I was overweight as a child and young adult as well so I especially enjoyed your story. Thank you for reading my blog! Best of luck in you future endeavors.

    • Steven Waddell | January 26, 2015 at 7:38 PM | Reply

      Thank you so much! It has certainly been a journey. I’m curious though. What do you think caused you to put on weight as a child? For me, I think it was wheat!

      • Great question! I think it was a combination of wheat and too much sugar. Essentially, processed foods full of simple carbs. I am now gluten-free and greatly limit my sugar intake.

      • Steven Waddell | January 27, 2015 at 8:02 PM |

        Wheat was the big one for me too. It shoots your blood sugar up more than the same amount of table sugar.

  8. Steven… I’ve enjoyed finding & reviewing the posts on your blog and didn’t know much about the Paleo diet prior to watching your videos. I don’t know if the Paleo Diet is for me but what I do know is having the information about it is another important tool in my weight loss arsenal. Your blog is informative and all your posts come from a “good place” -and- I like that!… what I mean by that is they are non self serving or self interest posts (all posts are for the sole benefit of your readers battle with obesity). GOOD 4 U!

    However… your faithful blog followers do need some new WP BLOG posts from you. LOL ~brĺđğəłłə

    • Steven Waddell | January 22, 2015 at 1:29 PM | Reply

      :) im trying to post twice a week are you not seeing the posts in tour feed? If not you can always follow via email?

  9. It’s great to see somebody who got it all together early on (your 20’s) and is so willing to share. In particular, your admission to a “toxic addiction” for video games. I think this is wildly misunderstood and underestimated in our growing health and mental issues in those under 40, Interactive TV powered by an endless buffet of processed foods, yikes.

    • Steven Waddell | January 22, 2015 at 11:54 AM | Reply

      Thanks Matt!

      I’m trying to share my addiction, because it isn’t really talked about as one or at all for that matter. I think World of Warcraft has something like 20 million subscribers at this point and that’s just one game!

      I agree with you. Before I started to use my body everyday and pay attention to the nutrition going into my mouth I was boarder line asperger’s, with a lot of anxiety, and depressed all the time. This isn’t the cure for everyone, but if someone struggles with these issues I’d definitely rule the other two out before medication.

  10. Steven, this is a pretty remarkable story. You are an inspiration. Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and read my post.

  11. Wow! The fact you have changed your own life and want to ‘pay it forward’ to help others is admirable. :)

  12. Fascinating story, and amazing you were able to get a handle on things. I needed gastric bypass twice and a body lift/tummy tuck to restore me to health, but it was the best thing I ever did for myself. It actually wasn’t until the second bypass revision that I lost my obsessive and overriding constant hunger. Perhaps a nerve got cut that time that altered things for me, I can only guess. But it was such a revelation to finally be free of that, and until I was free hadn’t realized what a burden and problem it had been in terms of contributing to my obesity. However, it is difficult to relate to that fat woman now, although I remember being her, and living in her body and thinking her thoughts…. in many ways I am a much different person now, have a fuller and richer life where my weight and obesity does not consume my every waking moment and thoughts. Now my body is a tool that I use to express my dance and artistic expression, and not the means of my inevitable early demise. I don’t know much about paleo diets, but have heard good things. It sounds like it works well for you.

    • Steven Waddell | January 18, 2015 at 12:15 AM | Reply

      Thank you, I did something of the same. I got into a few different martial arts and realized I was really an athlete after all these years. The freedom from food being on my mind every second of my waking day changed me as a person.

  13. WOWZA, intense Story Steven. I am glad you got your second chance and used it to better yourself and help others as well. Totally inspiring sir. What a weird time to find you. I am on a 140Lb. Weight loss journey as we write here now. It’s pretty new ( day 5) but I feel great and believe this is going to be a successful year for me in regards to weightloss, inner healing, self love and acceptance. I look forward to following you

    • Steven Waddell | January 18, 2015 at 12:28 AM | Reply

      Thanks! Let me know if you want me to write about anything specifically. I always need ideas for blog articles!

      • You bet! What do you know about weight loss and Hashimotos Thyroidis? Any tips? I have been gluten free for a week now

      • Steven Waddell | January 21, 2015 at 9:10 PM |

        Sorry Kalever,

        It puts you in the spam folder. I don’t know why. Anyway, I would say…grab those 1 pound bags of frozen veggies and some Kerrygold butter and build meals around those. That’s been the easiest way to stay gluten free for me!

      • Really? It puts me as spam, that sucks:-(.
        Thanks for the tip

      • Steven Waddell | January 21, 2015 at 9:13 PM |

        Yeah, sorry about that. I try to check it a few times a week. It put some other people as spam too.

      • Ha ha well it’s not your fault at all, so don’t be sorry

      • Steven Waddell | January 21, 2015 at 9:32 PM |

        Who knows maybe it is my fault. Im not terriblly wordpress savvy and could of definitely hit a button!

      • It’s possible, I have done it. Soon enough you will be a WP God.
        It’s kind of confusing at first, but once you get to know what and where everything is and what is is for/does, you’ll be laughing. WP is the best blogging platform with THE BEST people using it. I am definitely watching your blog

  14. Isn’t it great when we get second, third, etc. chances? Very inspiring story.

  15. Thanks for the advice. Your story is such an inspiration. I look forward reading more of your blog:)

    • Steven Waddell | January 13, 2015 at 10:42 PM | Reply

      Thanks, I’m glad you like it! I’m trying really hard to get everything I learned on to paper so hopefully everyone can have a fair shot at life!

  16. What an inspirational story…..I found you from Nancy’s blog (My Years of Sweat)….anyway…..wonderful story and great blog.

  17. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. Your story is intriguing and wonderfully inspirational. I will definitely keep coming back to see what’s new as I have begun my 50 pound weight loss program after surviving breast cancer. 😀

  18. Hi Steven, thanks for visiting my blog. Your story is very inspirational, and how you’ve managed to turn your life around and make such a positive change, is admirable. When I was originally diagnosed with gluten intolerance / celiac disease, my naturopath told me that it is the foods that we crave that are usually bad for us.

  19. Hi Steven,
    Your story is very inspirational. Why do you find wheat addictive? I find sugar addictive. Thank you for the like in my tomato soup. I try to mantain a healthy lifestyle, I’ll keep reading your blog to find out how you maintain, since you don’t need either portion contro nor exercise!

    • Steven Waddell | January 8, 2015 at 2:22 PM | Reply

      Thanks Lety!

      I’m looking for some new recipes to try.

      Once I start eating things with wheat in them I can’t stop. I never feel full unlike when eating other things. It’s like that portion of my brain that tells me when I’ve had enough is shut off. As far as sugar goes, I know it’s addictive, but was never really a vice for me. I’m more wired to go for bitter over sweet.

      • Well congratulations on your achievement! I have to be very careful with sugar. I fight it every day. Hope you like what you find in my blog. I have a mexican background, so it is diffenret from the american-mexican style that here in the US are used to.

  20. Your story is very inspiring. How long have you maintained your weight loss? How is it different for you now?

    Thanks for the like!

    • Anytime!

      I’ve kept it off for about 7 years now. Two things are drastically different for me:

      The world is very exciting for me now and full opportunity!

      People treat me much, much differently. I remember, when I first lost the weight, for about a year I always felt like I was walking around with my fly unzipped, or huge stains all over my clothes. People would pay attention to me. I wasn’t used to this unless something was wrong.

      • That’s incredible. I can’t say that I feel like everyone is looking at me differently (I lost 50) but I would like to stop feeling like this is temporary.

        Do you think your world has more opportunity because of how you see the world or because of how it sees you? Both? You look amazing, by the way :)

    Your story deeply touched my heart,I had several serious health issue in my past,but the desire to be healthy and full of energy changed my lifestyle.You have amazing blog here and I enjoy reading your inspired posts.I wish you all the best,Krystyna.

    • Thanks Krystyna,

      I’m glad you’re going to try the butter coffee tomorrow. Just make sure you use the MCT oil and not coconut oil. Coconut oil will ruin the flavor and won’t emulsify properly. Let me know how you like it. Also, if you like your coffee a little sweeter you can get some xylitol or stevia.

      Thanks some much for the kind words.

      • Mirror of your Health | June 6, 2014 at 3:04 PM |

        Hi Steven,
        I made this awesome coffee today at my lunch with MCT oil and I added a raw stevia.I also watched your youtube video how to properly make this coffee.This recipe was so delicious,now I know what coffee I am going to drink every day.I also know that MCT oil is a good for diabetics,it regulates a blood sugar levels.I have a question,what is the xylitol?
        Have a wonderful,sunny day,Krystyna

  22. Thank you Steven, for liking my post.Well what do I say-Your wt loss inspired me to do much better for me on a day to day basis. and trust me you look no less than a Calvin Klein model post your transformation! :) so Kudos to you on you huge achievement.

  23. Thank you so much for sharing your story. You are truly an inspiration. I can’t wait to read the rest of your website. Thank you also for “liking” my post on how to prevent yourself from regaining weight after a major weight loss. Has that been an issue for you at all or have you been able to keep the weight off fairly effortlessly?

    – Kendall Hall

    • Thanks Kendall, it’s become pretty effortless for me at this point. The hardest part is finding meals on the go given I can not eat wheat products. Otherwise, I have no food cravings and want to eat only the right things to build up my health and vitality. I don’t need to portion control or exercise either. I think many food cravings are because of nutrient deficiencies (with the exception of Wheat, because its addicting).

  24. Wow, what a story. Thank you for being so honest. I am struggling with weight in my own way and you are right. It just has to make sense. I am trying so hard to make sense of it right now. I look forward to following your stories and maybe even catch up on the past.

    • Thanks! Weight can be a very difficult thing to address. Is there anything in particular you are struggling with?

      • Just the mindset. I have 40 pounds to shed. I only recently realized I am also a closet eater. I am tired of cheating myself and lying. I want to be healthy and hike the grand canyon or half dome. I want to have these achievements. So much more. that is why I am writing my blog. To better understand myself.

      • Well two things: A lot of times binge eating is due to nutrient deficiencies. So, ask yourself what nutrients you may be getting from that food source. For example, binging on ice cream or cheese ussually means your body is screaming for a cholesterol source to rebuild sex hormones. Second, wheat is physiologically addicting. Part of the protein molecule in gluten crosses the blood brain barrier and stimulates pleasure receptors in the brain. Food should not do this.

      • Interesting. I never thought of that angle. I should work on being more mindful. Thank you!

  25. Wow. What an amazing story. I am so happy for you that you were able to take what could have been tragedy and turn into something amazing and wonderful for yourself. I’ve had similar moments of looking in the mirror and thinking, “I’m smart. Why can’t I figure this out?” I get what you mean when you say the real miracle is that mental shift. My mental shift didn’t happen in one pinpoint “aha” moment. It’s been slowly but surely turning since about last March, and it’s still turning. I work daily on breaking old, flawed, thought loops. Anyhow, thanks for sharing your story. I’ll look forward to perusing your blog further :)

  26. Very inspiring story Steven! And thank you for liking my blog post :) In peace and health!

  27. Interesting, I have similar story except my accident was by me, run over by my own car. AndI am much older. Thanks for sharing your WP and you story.

  49. Thank you for following our blog. We sincerely appreciate your support.

    -Marpay Fitness

  50. Thank you for your advice. I’m going to try that. I have another 4 weeks before i’m allowed to do any vigorous workouts but i’ve been doing yoga to better my balance and regain flexibility.

    • Anytime! If you can’t afford to get 9 good hours of sleep a night don’t do a hard workout. It ends up being counter productive by creating more stress instead of relieving it.

  51. After reading your story and seeing your transformation all i can say is “WOW”.

    Thank you for stopping by my blog, you really are an inspiration. I would love to know more about you lost the weight. My goal weight to have a healthy bmi requires me to lose 108lbs and it seems daunting.

    But i have two young kids (3 1/2 years and 2 weeks old) to keep up with, they deserve a healthy mother. I’d like to go from the basement to the 2nd floor without feeling like i ran a marathon.

    • 2 young kids is a pretty damn good motivator! I would definitely check out my post on butter coffee, as pound for pound that is the single best thing you can do for your weight and health. Then, I would work on changing your diet over to veggies and meat. Fruit does not work well for weight loss. If you can get to the point where you exercise 2-3 times a week and eat healthy 5-6 days you will see extremely rapid progress towards your goal. If you can eat healthy 4 days a week and workout 1-2 times a week you will see consistent progress just not nearly as rapid.

      Best,
      Steven

  52. Wow, that’s a very inspiring story. I too had that burst of passion when I travelled by myself for the first time. Can’t wait to hear more stories!

  53. Wow, great story. Can’t remember the rails on the New York Subway, but if they’re anything like the London Underground, you’re a lucky guy. It’s always how you react to adversity that counts and it sounds like you had a pretty positive reaction… especially from the looks of the transformation photos on the other blog. Amazing.

  54. Hiya great to have you along with me…….and great to have your journey to read to. Looking forward to keeping up with posts..

  55. Miracles do happen, us being here is one of them. I (mirrorgirlblog) deeply connect with this story, as I could not have been here myself. Looking forward to dive into your journey. Thanks for sharing

  56. Wow. I am shocked. Most people who that happens to – die. And it doesn’t take a long time. My goodness. I dunno if you are spiritual, but that definitely signals something. Looking forward to reading some of your articles! You must definitely have some powerful words to impart…

  57. Your story really speaks with me with regard to how we see the world. Although I have had no sudden life changing experience as you have, I certainly feel like I am moving out of the fog and also starting to view the world like you. I hope that embracing life from this angle brings me health and happiness too. Thank you for finding my blog! I look forward to sharing your journey!!!!

  58. Congratulations to you on responding so positively to your “wake up” call, for that is how I see these attention-getting devices from the Universe. I have had my own experiences as well, though nothing quite as dramatic as falling onto subway line. Nevertheless, my own wake up calls have prompted a new, more holistic way of living and one day I plan to write about it on my new reflective blog “In So Many Words …” … All best wishes to you on your amazing journey. I’m looking forward to being inspired. … Be well, Dorothy :-)

  59. Thank you for following my blog. Your story just made my day, so glad I stumbled onto you. I also lost 125 lbs among a host of other life-altering experiences, so can definitely relate to your story. I did it over the course of 3 years and with diet/exercise and a whole shift in vision. Like you I’m a survivor, though with a different set of circumstances, strength is strength all the same. If you happen to visit, you’ll note similar themes to your approach spirit in all my (poetry) writing. What doesn’t kill you makes you stranger… err stronger. Keep the faith, you’re beautiful. XOXOX <3

  60. So amazing, I have a similar story and can relate, thank you for sharing :)

  61. What an amazing story! I can totally related to the ‘banging my head on the wall’ feeling when it comes to weight loss and getting/staying healthy. I face the same struggle myself, and am in the middle of a ‘need to lose weight’ phase. Also struggling with how I’m going to ‘make it stick this time.’ Reading your story makes me realize it shouldn’t take a major accident to make me value my health and well-being in the present. Thank you for that.

    • Awesome! You should check out my post on Butter Coffee. I wish I knew about this stuff when I was first trying to lose the weight. I use it know and it really helped me stay effortlessly lean. As I’m sure you can see, I wasn’t born with a speedy metabolism.

  62. Amazing story! I look forward to exploring this inspiring blog :)

  63. Wow, your story is truly inspirational. I’m so glad that you can share your story with others, and your kindness with many. Thank you!

  64. A blog that I feel should touch people … much like !

  65. Very touched by your story, and feeling bad just going on diets to keep healthy when I never had a weight problem. But as I said in my post, it’s a detox diet really :) You look gorgeous by the way, well done 😀

  66. Amazing story. You took something terrible and made it into a great thing for you. There is always something that can turn us around. We just have to find it…even if it is bad and unexpected.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and I look forward to reading about your success.

  67. Hi Steven,
    Your blog was one of the first I started reading and I really enjoy the motivation your share in your posts so I have nominated you for the “Versatile Blogger Award”.
    Kind regards,
    Michèle

  68. Always great to read stories of obstacles overcome, I look forward to reading more of your blogs in due course Steve, in the meantime, I hope this does not sound patronsing, but very well done for your inner strength and determination.

  69. Steven,

    You are truly an inspiration! I’ve also lost a substantial amount of weight since high school [I gained much the same as you – in response to a growth spirit that spiraled into laziness and video games] and I’ve worked for over a decade to lose it.

    Rather than being motivated my a near-death experience, I was motivated by my husband who witnessed me purging; I had suffered with bulimia for nearly seven years without ANYONE in my family learning.

    It’s only been the last few years [really, the last 12-18 months] that I’ve gained control of my eating disorder, primarily through the discovery of the Paleo lifestyle and fueling my body, versus shoving food into it.

    I look forward to following your blog!

    ~ Victoria Elizabeth

  70. I am so happy for you that you were able to understand and work through the mental and emotional healing work. I know that changing one’s thinking is biggest leap everyone takes in their life. It’s more than healing the body and mind, it’s about being true to oneself in order to align our body and mind with our soul. Namaste

  71. What an inspiring story! I grew up quite spiritual and aware and, severely ill with asthma, died a couple times, was in emergency rooms or hospitals on a regular basis. Doctors said i wouldn’t live to see 30. So at age 23 I started expanding my study of holistic therapies and alternatives. I fell through a hole in a store at age 20 and that with my other studies, led me to my now 34 year career in holistic health. And I am now 61, healthier than I ever was as a child.

    It is amazing how accidents and injuries often lead people to their true path. Good for you for saying yes to life and to change!

  72. Thanks for reading my post! I just came here and read your amazing story!I will be following your blog, it looks great.

  73. Great work on changing your life around! I am actually down about 75 pounds my self and have kept it off for about 2 years so far. It is hard for me being a chef as well, but I have found a great balance between eating healthy and eating NOT-SO-HEALTHY ;o) I also feel that physical activity is extremely important for keeping healthy and happy as well.

  74. I love this and look forward to reading more of what you have to say.

  75. Thanks for visiting my blog. I will be following you. Amazing story!

  76. Wow! You are certainly here for a reason, what an amazing miracle. Thanks for taking the time to read and like my post :)

    What an amazing story! Isn’t it funny how trauma can be the inspiration for great change. I can relate!!

  78. That is not only life changing, but awe inspiring. Was in a car accident a few years back. Nothing as traumatic as you–but had a few challenges. Balance was the last one I had to overcome. Best of luck to you, and thank you for liking my post.

  79. What an inspiring story! I was hunting around your page and have to say you had me at paleo but I’m glad I kept on reading so I got to see your story.

  80. Wonderfully refreshing! The change in attitude, accepting life as something you are responsible for, and glowing from the inside out… love it!

  81. Thank you kindly for dropping by my blog. You have quite the miracle story! :)

  82. Dear Steve,

    What a miracle you are. I am Colleen, I used to weight 114kg, I am 85kg. I lost weight by exercising, eating healthier, and dealing with my emotional issues.

    I am a therapist : I practise reiki and massage and these have been part of my healing process.

    I live in South africa, Midlands on a farm with my husband.

    Please tell me more about your story.

    Colleen.

    • Hi Colleen,

      Great to hear from you! I’ll be updating my blog regularly, so come back soon. Is there anything in particular you would like to know about? Out of curiosity, what do you grow/raise on your farm?
