I read this in the news the other day. Stories like this make me proud... it's nice to see people losing weight with just diet and exercise. Papa Joe Aviance proves you can lose weight without spending too much money on groceries. He also shed the weight without resorting to surgery.
Papa Joe Aviance basically did what I did... threw out the candy, gave up the soda and ate better food. He also started a walking routine. You might remember that I lost weight with walking myself. I still to this day walk 10,000 steps every day. This story proves that walking is a great form of exercise.
I think this is a great weight loss story, although I hope the guy is reading the food labels. Some of the food that Joe is buying might have too much sodium and sugar (such as the pot pies). This means he might still have to deal with high blood pressure issues. I know cutting back on sodium has made a huge difference in my blood pressure, so it might want to be something he considers as he continues on with his healthier lifestyle.
I'm glad the diet works for Joe. Like I said before, I think diets are a personal thing. If you find something works for you, stick with it, especially if you lose weight! Joe is a true inspiration to those that think they can't afford to lose weight with the price of groceries. There are healthier choices in every budget!
