Every one of us had goals in mind when we started this journey. Maybe it was to lose some weight or to improve our endurance performance. Maybe it was to help control our Type 1 Diabetes or reverse our Type 2 Diabetes, or cure our Hypertension or reduce our risk of Cardiovascular Disease. Maybe it was to experience an improvement in energy or cognitive function or maybe just our feeling of general wellbeing. Whatever your original goal was, I am willing to bet that you have seen distinct improvements in many other areas that you were never expecting. I initially started out to lose some weight, which I have done, but my running has also improved astronomically, my recovery time is infinitely better, I feel 20 years younger, I have tons more energy, I can concentrate all day now and never have periods where I feel I am dragging, the inflammation in my knees has cleared up…. and that is just the stuff I can think of off the top of my head as I write this.
