Hi there, My names Terrence Kuhn and after my own personal experience with many day to day issues I now spend the majority of my time researching the various problem problem. I’m someone with a real passion for helping people achieve their goal as I realize that sometimes we all need a little help, a push in the right direction.
One of my major focus area is obesity. Back in 2010 I was around 30lbs over weight. Now I know that’s not a massive amount but as someone that has always been slim, I was quite alarmed how easy the weight crept on while I wasn’t really paying attention. But as with lots of people, 30lbs wasn’t enough to make me do something about it.
Then in July of that year one of my best friends died from a brain aneurysm. My world was shattered as you can imagine. I needed something to focus on so one day at work I had the idea to raise money in his name by running ten miles on his birthday. I knew this would help his friends and family if they all got involved in the fundraiser. So that week I arranged the event and began running.
Over the next few months I studied hard. Learning techniques and strategies to help me take on such a huge challenge. As someone that loves eating and cooking, I wasn’t willing to give up the foods I loved, so I got to work creating healthy variations. This was a massive help I think, being able to still enjoy good food while training.
The funny thing is…Although I didn’t set out to lose weight, within 8 weeks I had lost 28lbs. I was amazed! This revelation set me on the path I’m on.
So my friends birthday finally came and I run the ten mile comfortably. We raised $3k and continue to run the same ten miles every year on that day as a mark of respect for a great guy that we all miss.
I loved the fact that I had lost so much weight without following any FADDY diets or not really trying to hard at all. I wondered why the western world has such a weight problem when I had lost quite a lot without to much difficulty.
