My son screamed at me: “IT’S NOT ABOUT THE CALORIES!”


I always had a weight problem.  In my mind, I knew how to diet and I knew about nutrition.  For the longest time, I really tried to follow what I thought was right-mainly counting calories.  But my life was crazy: I was working 60-80 hours a week and raising three kids.  Eventually, I just gave up.  I gained SOOOO much weight.  I gained 70 pounds.  I was trying my best to stay active-I walked the dog, chased the kids around, but was still rapidly gaining weight.  Finally, I went to see a doctor.  His suggestion? To cut my caloric intake to 800 calories a day.

After the doctor visit, I went home to see my son.  He was the one who introduced me to Crossfit and Paleo, and basically screamed at me, “IT’S NOT ABOUT THE CALORIES!”
