Thanks to readers and clients who have submitted their comments. We hope you’re encouraged and ready to feel better too!
LOVE YOUR DVD!
I read about your DVD in a Weston Price publication and I ordered it. I thought it was so great that I ordered another one to give my brother.
I love your work! I appreciate the way you deliver your information in a clear, concise manner without treating the public like they are stupid, yet still with clarity and articulation for people who don’t know as much. Your approach is beautiful – I don’t feel you are trying to sell me something, but are trying to teach me something and giving me the tools to do it. I have read just about every book on health (natural health) but still there is so much I don’t know, especially the ‘WHY” of it all. I think that when people understand WHY it makes all the difference, at least for me. You have confirmed and validated with your DVD everything for me ~

IMMEDIATE DIVIDENDS TO OUR HEALTH Thank you again for all the helpful advice you have given me and my family. Since October of 2012, when I began preparation for my gastric sleeve weight loss procedure, I have lost 110 lbs, or 57.5% of my excess body weight. Thanks to your tips on smart eating and the Paleo lifestyle, I have reached the high-end average for first year weight loss for my procedure within 6 months!
While I have not attained the 100% Paleo goal, the changes I have made based on your advice have paid immediate dividends to my physical and psychological health. My wife and I are faithful listeners to your podcast, and look forward to your helpful advice as we proceed on our journey towards better personal health.
Warmest Regards, Dan R. Modesto, CA
DIET SOLUTIONS TO MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEMS: I watched your DVD and I’ve changed my diet drastically. Some of the healthy foods do have sugar so I’ll be more careful next time (two weeks). I became interested in the food/health connection for my clients, and for my own allergies, as I had a LOT as a child. Now I get that those intolerances may affect my mental status. I’m realizing I may not have “outgrown” them, and this diet may help correct that. I’m willing to experiment until I get it right, and then maybe help clients with diet solutions to their mental health problems. R.Walla, San Antonio
I KNOW WHAT “NORMAL” FEELS LIKE NOW! Thank you Beverly for the amazing things I have learned about diet and health from your podcasts, DVD and newsletter. Your efforts are so appreciated. At 47, I’m finally understanding my body, and the necessity to nourish it with the proper “Diet For Human Beings” as your DVD teaches. I now realize that so many of my physical issues were directly related to my diet, especially dairy. I thought what I was experiencing was “normal”. Let me assure you. I’m enjoying “normal” now!
I’m thankful I can impart your wisdom to my daughter, who is 21, and can start her adult life eating properly and enjoying good health. She’s already begun! We always thought we were doing what was right. I’ve been able to lose 43 POUNDS so far, and it’s been effortless since I get to eat all the things I enjoy. The key to my success is due to the advanced planning of and preparing meals. (Thank you for the free ebook on that topic).
Listening to your Primal Diet – Modern Health podcasts has been extremely educational. I’m so happy I stumbled upon your show through an iTunes podcast search. I really enjoyed your video on The Diet For Human Beings and plan to share it with family and friends soon. (Your skin is amazing…you must share which products you use with your listeners…or at least me!) Until you mentioned it, it never occurred to me that what we put on our skin could impact our health.
Thank you also for your newsletter. I can’t wait to try the Crockpot Chili Cilantro chicken. It’ll go on next week’s menu for sure. Now, you should print this out and read it again when you’re having a bad day! Thank you again…Good job!….Brava!
Sincerely, E. P., California
3 MONTHS – LOOK AT THESE JEANS! My husband and myself attended Beverly Meyer’s class on the Diet for Human Beings and everything changed for us. I had already been avoiding many foods and processed things but I had NO IDEA that grains were keeping me in a suspended state of extra pounds and physical complaints. Her class was eye opening! We bought some coconut oil, her DVD on the diet for human beings and some pink salt after the class and were ready to make big changes. We also bought the book “Wheat Belly” by cardiologist William Davis. A MUST READ.
When we left we talked about what we had learned and stopped at Longhorn Steakhouse where we ordered our first meal based on Paleo/Primal principles. From that moment on everything has been different for my family. My husband has lost 30 lbs and is still losing. I have lost 19 lbs. in 3 months and while my loss has slowed down, the scale is still slowly moving down and I don’t have anything to wear! LOL
I actually messaged Beverly this morning thanking her for this life-changing direction. Her class was that fork in the road!! If you can make it to one of her classes, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND doing so!
I can’t wait to post my husbands loss pictures when he gets where he wants to be! Monica H., San Antonio, Tx
WEIGHT LOSS, AND NO MORE SNORING! In seven months on the The Det For Human Beings/Primal Diet I have lost 20 pounds and gone from a size 14 to a size 10! I feel better overall and because of that I have added a moderate exercise program to my life. I only go to the gym two or three times a week, but I am now feeling the results. For years I have kept everyone in the house awake with my snoring (I would even wake myself with my snoring). After being on the diet only a short time, my snoring went away!!! Everyone is sleeping better. There are times when I miss bread and sweets (I’m from a family of bread eaters), but it is not hard to turn them aside and go for something good. And it is not hard to stay on the diet when away from home as many restaurants are becoming more aware of grain-free diets. Even airports have places where you can find foods for this diet. I have made this diet my diet for life and I recommend it to everyone. Reba R., Smithville, Ga.
DIET AFFECTS NEUROLOGY – I was diagnosed with a rare neurological disease 3 years ago (CIDP), and went in search of answers I couldn’t get from my neurologist. My approach was to learn about the condition, hoping to find a way to live the best life I could under the circumstances.
Beverly Meyer is a straight talker. If you are committed to your health and are prepared to work for it, she will form a partnership with you that can improve the way you feel dramatically. The individual ultimately has to do the work themselves to be successful and Beverly is an excellent educator and motivator. Thanks for everything! Kathleen C. San Antonio, Tx
I HAVE A WAIST AGAIN! The first time I met with Beverly was 3 1/2 years ago, in 2008. I was postmenopausal, and in spite of an active lifestyle and a supposedly “healthy” diet, my body was continuing to stack on the pounds. After our first consultation, I realized I would have to eliminate certain foods from my diet, and go gluten-free. At first it seemed really difficult, but I did it gradually and about 3 months later I started to see some stabilizing in my weight. I maintained a healthier weight without anymore gain. Finally, last January I felt I had plateaued and Beverly advised me to really get with the Paleo Diet, meaning no more or very few grains of any kind. I guess I was ready for the next level because it has been easier than I thought. I’ve learned to plan my meals on weekends by cooking and freezing and having lunches ready for the week. I’ve now lost the weight AND I have my waist back! I have more lean muscle mass and feel as good as, if not better than, before menopause. The changes have been challenging but well worth it for me. Thanks Beverly. Regina B., San Antonio, Tx
IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME AND MY FAMILY! I can honestly say that Beverly Meyer and everything she has taught me about The Diet For Human Beings saved my life and my daughter’s life. I will forever be grateful to her and her wisdom. My daughter suffered from IBS since birth and developed chronic fatigue in high school. I too have suffered from IBS my whole life and was headed down a road of chronic illness. Not one doctor (and there were many) ever mentioned anything about the food we were eating and how it might be the contributing factor to all our troubles. Since working with Beverly and following her Paleo Diet, both my daughter and I are the healthiest we’ve ever been. People ask me all the time if I miss bread, pasta, cake etc… But I just say that if you don’t have your health, everything else in your life suffers. It is not worth it! Thank you Beverly! Tricia N.
