In January 2011 I decided to try my next diet. I had been exploring different diets for about 20 years by this point but this next one was different. This one made sense, common sense. I had already been a big proponent of getting back to our roots and getting as natural as possible. I had also recently been exposed to the theory that the Agricultural Age was the beginning of the demise of mankind. Mass producing food just did not seem natural, and when I found that there was a way to eat that supported my beliefs, I was all in. Before I could finish The Paleo Solution by Robb Wolf, I was blasting all over social media about how this was the only way to eat. I was even, for a short while, the Paleo police and would criticize people who were not following the "rules" to a tee. Realizing I was being a jerk, I gave up my badge for the Paleo police but I continued making posts and bragging about my progress. I even started taking on personal training clients after taking a break for many years. To me, eating this way was the missing ingredient to my success as a personal trainer. Within six months of going paleo, I lost around 35 pounds, dropped to a weight I had never seen as an adult, and accomplished things I never thought I could do, like run four miles barefoot and do pull-ups and ring dips. The transformation was amazing. Over the years I've received several inquiries from friends and family on Facebook asking how I achieved these results. My advice was simple: eat these foods, don't eat these foods, and read these books. Every single person I gave this advice to, failed miserably. I couldn't understand why when it was exactly how I got results! I would even get a little frustrated (maybe a lot) at the fact that people weren't achieving good results with the advice I was giving them. In my mind, I gave great advice. Then someone pointed out to me that not everyone was like me. Not everyone was a gung-ho, all or nothing, do-it-now type of person. That's when I sat down and started creating this more

About David Soto Jr

David was born in Gardena, California and spent most of his childhood in Los Angeles. In high school, his family moved to a small town in Missouri. At age 17, David joined the Air Force and spent the next 23 years toggling between active duty Air Force and Missouri Air National Guard. In 2002 he was deployed under Operation Enduring Freedom and in 2004 he went to Iraq as a civilian contractor because his Air Guard Unit would not send him themselves. Throughout the years, when not in uniform, David tried his best to fit into society. He got a job, went into debt to buy a house and a car, and tried to find a girl to marry and start a family with. None of these seemed to work out for him. Instead, he felt best on the road. At the age of 30, he sold most of his possessions, put his house up for rent, hit the road, and (more or less) hasn't stopped since. Currently, David works with clients as a life, small business, and wellness coach. He writes and speaks about how to regain your freedom through simplification. He calls it: Primitive Living. You can learn more about his philosophy at more
