I'm 26 and quickly find my health failing on the Standard American Diet. Growing up my parents were conscious of better eating habits, though it wasn't ever put into practice. I learned about Dr. Joe Esposito back in the mid-nineties. His 7 deadly sins lecture was impressive, but I was young and "healthy" and didn't have to worry about that stuff yet (I told myself).
On a SAD diet I've been pudgy most of my life. I trimmed down in 2003 for my varsity tennis season through excessive exercise and consuming large amounts of herbalife products instead of actual food. I did lose weight, but when I returned to eating food again regularly it came right back.
At 6'3" and almost 300 lbs I'm at a crossroad. I'm pre-diabetic(self diagnosed), have low energy, don't sleep well and can't seem to sleep enough, and tired of being the person (spritually, mentally, and physically) I never imagined I could become.

Please tell us about your dietary inclinations:
1) 06 FEB 2011 2) I have ate 100% for 4 days although I wouldn't yet consider myself completely there yet. 3) my goal is to sustain this for the rest of my life and help show my family and friends. It's very difficult to approach people with LFRV. Reading this forum has already helped me much in that regard.

My favourite books/movies/authors/pastimes are....
I'm a huge documentary fan, love books/movies on the monetary system of the world. In terms of nutrition I'm a fan of Dr. Joe Esposito, Dr. Dean Ornish, and most of all Dr. Douglas Graham. That is, after all, what led me to 30BaD.
