I cannot begin to thank you for your wonderful seminar last night. There is so much I want to tell you, but I will try to keep this short.
I heard you speak (with Sunnny) at a seminar in SF Sports Basement a couple of years ago, and I thought it was wonderful (btw, that following Sunday I ran a PR at Big Sur!) But last night made more of an impact. Several months ago I let myself get out of shape and gain about 50lbs. (lost 10, 40 to go) I realize I really don’t have a handle on healthy eating. I guess all that running only compensated for my poor habits. That’s all about to change. I’m training again (to run marathons) and I can’t wait to see what happens as I implement your diet guidelines.
Last night I (sort of) dragged my 17yr old son along with me to hear you speak. I had been raving about you. I knew he would be open to hearing about nutrition because he had heard bits and pieces of it. He loves bike riding and going to the gym to work out with weights. This is what he said about last night,
“I went there last night thinking I would find out what to eat before and after I lift weights at the gym. I wasn’t so excited at the talk, but the more I think about what he said - it has changed my life. It’s not about what I eat right before or after a workout; it’s what I eat at every meal that counts. And it will make me better at everything I do.”
Holy smoke! How rewarding to have such an impact on a kid! He totally gets it. I know this will spill over into all areas of his life. He told me now he knows what to do. Actually, he hasn’t stopped talking about you and your talk. I wish you could have heard the excitement in his voice. He thinks you are the smartest and most amazing person ever!
Thanks again. You’re the best.
