Founder's Story, William Bird
  • This is my story! At 5’-4” (161cm), I was obese. I weighed 212lbs. (93.4kgm) (15st 2lbs). I had to grab a chair or table in order to stand up from the floor. So embarrassing! My wife, always hounded me, about how unacceptably fat I was. I found it difficult to keep the weight off. None, of the diets I tried, worked. I was frustrated and always hungry.
  • Mentally I had  anxiety attacks, stress,
  • Physically, I had arthritis, heartburn, chronic coughing, sleep apnea, chest pains, and in January of 2018, my dear doctor told me that I was diabetic.
  • Now, I didn’t take this diabetic news as a devastating blow. You see, this was my incentive to fix my health. We agreed that the first thing I should do is drop my weight. She referred me to a dietitian.
  • The dietitian asked me to journal my daily consumption of food. After a few weeks, I had a problem. I knew the value of writing down what I eat but the journal format just wasn’t working.
  • I purchased some takeout. At first, I felt fine, but then I felt so stretched. I knew right then, I had eaten the wrong food. The next morning when I weighed myself, I was up a disappointing 2.5lbs (1.1kg). When I ate the takeout, I knew I’d weigh more the next morning. I could feel it in my gut.
  • Now, the journal showed me “when” I ate the takeout, but “when” doesn’t matter. What matters is that I ate it and how I felt.
  • So I made a chart of rows and columns. Each column had a feeling for a title. I’d eat something. 15 to 20 minutes later I paid attention to how I felt. I entered into the chart, what I ate, under the feeling, which I had.
  • As, the metric of success was weight, I recorded my weight each day. I did not measure my food portions, nor count calories, nor count points, nor use an app, nor take supplements, nor go the gym, nor workout enough to contribute it to weight loss, nor have bariatric surgery. I did not follow the food guide.
  • If I’m eating properly, my body tells me, that I’ve eaten enough. I did not restrict myself to meals, at certain times of the day. When I was hungry, I ate. When I wasn’t hungry, I didn’t eat. My body decided, not the clock.
  • Mentally, I no longer have anxiety attacks, or chest pains. I can tolerate muzak, I'm less angry with my family.
  • Physically, I’ve lost 60 lbs in 18 months. I no longer have arthritis, heartburn, chronic coughing, sleep apnea,  And as unexpected bonuses, my nails are strong; the hair in my head is tightly attached; my skin looks great. My heart rate dropped from high 90s to low 70s. I no longer have high blood pressure. I can now stand up from the middle of the floor without grabbing anything. And to my doctor’s surprise, I’m no longer diabetic. And the best of all, my wife hugs me more. Can’t beat that. I’m 69.
  • I’m not a medical practitioner, I’m not a dietitian, If I was I wouldn’t be able to put this together. You see, they are bound by their government license to promote the government food guide. If they deviate from it, they’ll lose their lively hood. I’m simply a person just like you, who was frustrated with my weight and health.
  • However, I’ve discovered the cause of my illnesses, the fountain of youth, and I’m compelled to share my discovery. I feel an obligation to teach it. For I know that this solution doesn’t just work for me but it will work for you. I know this because I know, my physiology, how my body is made, isn’t unique; it is that of a human just like you. So if it works for me, it will work for you as well. Make sense?
