Corey and I normally do a live stream every Sunday at 10am (PST) on our Instagram and we have a fun and nerdy interaction will all our followers. We first came across Jason (aka. @primalvoyage ) during one of those live streams. Great guy and now that we know his story, we are totally blown away. It's fascinating how you pull the rock and there are layers to all of us. Behind a person just walking or talking, there is a wonderful narrative. This is what he sent us:
"I was overweight and miserable my whole life. Growing up in my teen an adolescent years I never had a date, no women would ever give me a chance, was a truly depressed individual I would turn to alcohol to numb my pain. I tried every yo-yo diet you can think of nothing work I was constantly starving and would lose a few pounds sometimes even 20-30 lbs only to gain it all right back in 2-3 months. This is how I lived my whole life up until 3.5 years ago when i was 34 years old."
"I went to my doctor for a routine procedure at his doctors office, it wasn’t even considered an outpatient procedure I was suppose to be back at work the next day, well long story short he hit an artery and didn't know it and sent me home I made it 1 mile and was hemorrhaging blood everywhere and losing consciousness. I was able to make it to a hospital where the nurses were forcing units of blood into me as fast as I was hemorrhaging units out, was near death they tipped the bed upside down to keep blood in my brain, that day changed my life for the better in an instant I realized how fragile are life is and that we can be taking out in an instant, at the time I was 295lbs and miserable I decided im going to do everything I can to loose my weight so I can be around to see my kids, and start being happy."
"I started on Atkins and lost 20 lbs quick in maybe a month or so, then Paleo was all the rave I started to research about Paleo and eventually started paleo and lost 60 lbs in a 9 month period, was Paleo for 1.5 years, but I was stuck in a Plateau I couldn’t break with Paleo. I stumbled across a Brandon Carter youtube video and started looking more and more into, and eventually took the plunge and jumped on the keto train loving every minute of it with Keto I crushed my plateau and feel better than ever inside as well as outside, i've been obsessed with keto, its all I think, dream, and do is Keto. I want to help so many people i’ve created an Instagram, Youtube, facebook business, Facebook group @primalvoyage this year January 1st all dedicated to keto, I just became a NASM-AFAA certified Keto coach and am taking personal training classes, as a way to build my accreditation and help more people. This is the short version of my story."
