Who’s ready for some inspiration today? Not, “aww, that’s cute” inspiration. I’m talking…

That kind of “shock and awe” inspiration!

Mark Sisson, the creator of the Mark’s Daily Apple website and blog, as well as the author of The Primal Blueprint (one of the premier books on how to improve your life through diet and regular physical activity), posted an amazing article last week.

It’s titled “The Unconquerable Dave”, and features the story of Dave Parsons and how his life changed forever through improving his health and diet, in large part by following Mark’s advice. (That in no way diminishes the fact that Dave did the work himself!!)

I’ll let you check out the full article on your own, but just to entice you a little, here’s the last email that Dave wrote to Mark at the end of last month, along with some “Before” and “After” pictures to put the words into perspective.

An amazing story, and an even more amazing example of how it’s never too late to start changing your life for the better with something as simple as improving what you put into your body!
