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,
“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.
