Richard Morris Saved

We are all familiar with the rapid/huge losses in wieght that are thrown in our faces by the media, one Jerad of Subway comes to mind. The story of Richard Morris, however, isn't one you will likely read about in the New York Times or see on TV but it is far more interesting and inspiring.

Richard unfortunately lost many of his closest family members to Diabestes and was on a self destructive path that could have potentially led him that direction as well. He was over 400 pounds and had a multitude of weight related health complicatations that were taking a toll on his life. One day while he was in New York he decided to stray away from his normal diet, he ate chicken with a side of vegetables and water intead of the usual cola and this small choice snowballed into a monumental change that would ultimately affect the rest of his life.

Richard called his wife and tossed around the idea of eating wholesome foods that aren't overly processed and changing his lifestyle; they agreed it would be the right thing to do. Fast forward to today, Richard has lost a significant amount of weight and currently works for Polyface Farms  as a delivery driver. He turned his life around completely and signficantly decreased his chances of getting diabetes. 

Food is probably one of the most important aspects of our lives, rich or poor we all need it to survive. In the last 50 years we have lost our way when it comes to food, but thanks to stories like this one and people like Richard I firmly believe we are starting to see the light again and are hopefully on our way back to the way our grandparents ate.

Richard is happier delivering #healthy #food & living on a #farm than he was when he had a six figure #job.
