Paul Blackwood – 17.5kgs lost in 7 months.

“After many years of enjoying good food and good wine, my GP and I had a discussion about my lifestyle. We agreed that for my future health and well being I needed to lose weight.

When I hit 98kg I had to agree with her. A friend, Tony Green who is a personal trainer, encouraged me to investigate the CSIRO high protein, low GI diet. I thought I would give it a try, as I had nothing to lose.  I will be forever in Tony’s debt for his advice and encouragement. Although I thought I was eating reasonably healthily, I was eating far too much of everything.  It has taught me about portion control and the advantages of well-balanced meals.

Also a huge help, encourager and guiding light in my weight loss and improved fitness levels is Russell Cox of Regenesis Fitness, who has been training me for about 4 years with 2 sessions a week. I have been a member of Regenesis Fitness for about 9 years and before I changed my lifestyle, although I felt good after training it did not make much difference to my weight or overall fitness level.  Once I embarked on the diet, Russell could ramp up the training intensity and he has been a great enabler to get the kilos off and improve my overall health and fitness. I am now at the gym 4 times a week and at Centennial Park walking twice a week

After 7 months I have lost 17.5 kilos and my fitness level has improved remarkably and I now find that my energy levels are much higher. Importantly, from a medical perspective, my cholesterol, liver function, sugar levels and blood pressure have all improved to a point that I thought I would never reach again.

So, in conclusion thanks to CSIRO, Russell and Tony’s initial encouragement I am on the way to a better future.”
