The 7 Things He Did to Lose 220 Pounds without Dieting
Dieting…just the word can conjure horror among those of us who have been through the typical rigmarole of trying to lose weight. There are weight loss centers, diet pills, prepackaged food programs, and gyms…yet most of America is still overweight or obese. Clearly there’s something wrong here!
For Jon Gabriel, his weight became a life-or-death situation in 2001. He tried everything. Because he was a man of means, he was even able to afford sessions with Dr. Atkins, famed for being the father of the “no carb” movement. Gabriel still could not lose weight. In fact, he continued to lose the battle, eventually ballooning up to 409 pounds in September of 2001. It was this month that would change his life. After narrowly missing the ill-fated United Airlines flight 93, Gabriel decided that his life needed more of a purpose. Devoting himself to learning more about what caused people to become fat, he used his scientific background to begin his weight loss journey. Two years later, he was 220 pounds lighter, without even dieting. This is how he did it.
