Used to be overweight

I was recently going through my photo library. I was intending to select some of my in-law’s grandchildren as part of a birthday present for my mother-in-law. Anyway, while doing that, I came across some fairly disturbing old images of myself. In order to embarrass myself, I thought I’d post at least one of those here.

That was at the start of 2012 when I weighed around 215 pounds and sported a 38″ waist line. Before I started on a serious program of micro-nutrition, I managed to drop about 10 of those pounds by running intense short distances; 1½ to 3 miles mainly. That took me to around October 2013, when I started real effective micro-nutrition.

This is me about 8 months after starting that micro-nutrition regime, at around mile 16 of a marathon in July 2014:

Some difference, huh? If you were going to sort those images by the age of that guy, which is the older person? The 215 pound 61-year old or the 180 pound 63-year old?

I didn’t change my “diet” (macro-nutrition) significantly; in fact, I was probably eating more while training for that marathon. What I did was achieve optimal micro-nutrition to help me support better stamina and endurance and weight management. That included a broad spectrum of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. It also included highly purified omega-3 fatty acids, anti-oxidants, and glucosamine.

When you look at that 63-year old guy running, please recognize that he hasn’t had any cartilage in his left knee since he was 16. He’s also had disc surgery (L4/L5) on his back about 14 years earlier. Osteoarthritis runs in his family.

You can too. Ask me how.
