My name is Jacob Love and my journey began a little short of 400 pounds.  In 2016 I had a complete physical. At that point I was 350 pounds. During this visit I was diagnosed with high blood pressure and extremely high cholesterol.  It was so high that they wanted to put me on medication. I was 29 years old at the time. Since that doctor’s visit and fast forward to 2018 I had put on an additional 50 pounds and had some seriously scary moments.  On several occasions I experienced chest pain, episodes of shortness of breath and blurry vision. I had not been to a doctor since 2016 and this was really because of shame and fear. I absolutely dreaded being weighed and tried to avoid it at all costs.  After a weekend visit to my very fit youngest brother and after watching him compete in a mixed martial arts tournament (that he won) in the fall of 2018 I knew I had to make a significant change. I spent the rest of the weekend asking my brother and his wife about their diet choices. They followed the Keto and Paleo diet and both were physically fit. I came home from that visit knowing full well that if I did not change I would see an early death. I literally moved to save my life.
 
I watched documentaries about the food industry.  The “Magic Pill was life altering. I cut out all sugars, flour, rice and pasta.  I focused on clean eating and preparing my own food. It was at this point I scoured the internet for ideas and help for healthy living alternatives and came across Califlourfoods.com. I ordered a case of their cauliflower and lentil pasta. It had 2 simple ingredients. That’s all it took. That “pasta” became a main daily staple of my diet. It is without question the best veggie pasta I have come across.  I have eaten this pasta as part of my plan for almost a year now. I also tried their jalapeno flatbreads which are delicious. Slowly I incorporated physical activity in my journey and completed a 5k in March of 2019. I have lost 105 pounds in less than a year and I am determined to lose another 50.  I did this with no pills or surgery. I had a complete physical in August 2019. My blood pressure and blood sugars were normal. My LDL and HDL cholesterol were normal. My overall cholesterol was still a little higher than what is considered normal, but was down 30 points. I was actually proud to step on the scale to show my primary provider what I have done. He was astounded and proud. I am a changed man and I thank the people at Califlourfoods.com for understanding the need to revolutionarily change the face of the diet industry. I owe my life to them.

That is an smazing transformation, Mr. Love! So very proud of your weight loss and touched by your story…I too was overweight most of my life. When I saw my Dr.s report that I was ‘morbidly obese’ that shocked me into changing my eating too! Cauliflower pizzas are more work than than just a delivery pizza, but SO MUCH HEALTHIER! And we use turkey pepperoni, lite cheese, and a few veggies like peppers or mushrooms, and you don’t miss a thing! Thanks so much for inspiring me to continue in my health journey! God bless you ..CAT
