Success Story Follow-Up: At 44 Years Young, I Feel Great!

By Guest


It’s Friday, everyone! And that means another Primal Blueprint Real Life Story from a Mark’s Daily Apple reader. If you have your own success story and would like to share it with me and the Mark’s Daily Apple community please contact me here. I’ll continue to publish these each Friday as long as they keep coming in. Thank you for reading!

In the last two and a half years, since the publication of my success story on MDA, I’ve been consistently 100% paleo, and I’m doing very very well!

I’ve kept my total weight easily in check, and I even added some more muscle mass (about 3-4 kg more compared with 2014).

I kept the same eating habits, except now I usually don’t eat nightshades or dark chocolate anymore to prevent inflammation of the joints, and I practice intermittent fasting 5 days a week to naturally increase my testosterone levels, my insulin sensitivity, and HGH.

My IF protocol essentially consists in eating only one meal (usually dinner) every 24 hours from Monday to Friday. On the weekends I eat two square meals. Breakfast is definitely a thing of the past for me anyway, and I don’t miss it at all.

Cropped_Federico_Success_StoryAbout a year ago I tested my genetic profile with DNA Fit, and as I suspected I have a strong intolerance to carbs and dairy products (which I had already cut out completely since 2011 by the way).

It turns out I’m also genetically pretty prone to injuries and inflammation, so my omega-3 intake should be kept pretty high (I was already on 6 grams a day, remember?). That’s why I now take a supplement of 7 grams daily of high quality omega-3 in addition to frequently consuming salmon and other natural omega-3 sources.

Being in a natural, mild state of ketosis pretty much all the time—thanks to my super low-carb, high-fat, and moderate protein regime—my sugar levels are perfectly stable, I feel full of energy all day, and my mental clarity has reached super high levels.

At 44 years young, I do my one and a half hour brisk walk routine outside with 5-7 full-out sprints and some intense full-body bodyweight calisthenics everyday, and I feel just great!

26+9 Birthday

I had a happy 35th 26+9th  birthday yesterday! After the wedding and honeymoon, it came up so fast that I barely remembered to celebrate! But Thomas and Mazen made me feel very loved. I think Mazen was more excited for my birthday than I was! He threw me a “surprise party” in my bedroom and had wrapped all of his favorite toys in his blankies to give to me. Thomas took me out to a nice lunch, and we’re doing dinner this weekend. We also had Princess Cake that his mom surprised me with the night before. I spent the morning shopping at LOFT (I got some good stuff but did not buy those green pants. I can just hear the What Not To Wear team saying “Do NOT add adornments or pockets to your thighs!” lol), and I did a really fun and hard ACAC off-campus hill workout outside of Three Notch’d Brewery’s new taproom and restaurant followed by dinner and a flight of beer inside. Those pretzel balls!! Mazen and I ended the day at T’s volleyball game. Mazen doesn’t have school today so he got to stay up extra late and loved every minute! The last event of the day: a nice hot bubble bath. It was a great birthday : )

Here are T W E N T Y S I X photos from the day!!
