Kevin rocks his “Irish Yoga” shirt. See what Kevin said about his first few months at DCF below:
‘In February after a blood test my doctor told me if I didn’t change my lifestyle I could develop NAFLD (non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, a life threatening condition). ALT, the enzyme in your blood that tests for this, was 64 on my blood test (with a normal range being 36 or below). I also had unmeasurable triglycerides and high cholesterol.
Yesterday I had to go back for a follow up blood test and my ALT was 35 (or normal) my total cholesterol went from high to normal, a 20% reduction, my triglycerides went from unmeasurable to high, but a 45% reduction, my good cholesterol was raised and LDL (bad cholesterol) lowered. My physician was amazed at the progress.
Basically I’ve been going to crossfit 3 days a week for 8 weeks and following the diet principles of the paleo plan, fasting when I can, and drinking a glass of red wine every day. I can’t wait to go back and get another test in 6 months to see if my Triglycerides are normal as well. You guys are literally, “lifesavers” thanks for helping me live a healthier life.’ – Kevin

“. . .When they finally arrived at Aqaba, Lawrenceâ€™s band of several hundred warriors killed or captured twelve hundred Turks, and lost only two men. The Turks simply did not think that their opponent would be mad enough to come at them from the desert. This was Lawrenceâ€™s great insight. David can beat Goliath by substituting effort for abilityâ€”and substituting effort for ability turns out to be a winning formula for underdogs in all walks of life, including little blond-haired girls on the basketball court. . .”
