Cutting weight in my 50s

Updated: May 19, 2021

In 2019 a friend encouraged me to begin running again. He was facing prostate surgery in spring of 2019 and planned to run a 5k in July. It was hard to say no to this challenge - so I began training for the 5k.

I came across the Plant Paradox book by Dr. Gundry. I liked how the science of nutrition and digestion was explained in a way that a person who had biology over 35 years ago

I'll blog a bit more as I go and share the incremental progress from when I started eliminating "bad Plants" from my diet in November of 2019...
