I received a wonderful email 3 years ago from Tony Lonero, since then we have become good friends. I am so proud, that at the age of 57, he is still qualifying, and EXCELLING, in bike races like the Paris-Brest-Paris, with his Multiple Sclerosis in full remission thanks to The Plan.
I wanted to know I saw you speak on Foxnews. I have had MS since 2001 as you know it is a battle.
What you said hit me and I bought your book. Since MS is a disease of our immune system, what you said about the right way to eat made sense to me. So I thought if I can find the foods that will not cause my immune system to act up, it may work. Well, I got your book in May and I started right away. I lost 12 kilos which is about 25lbs (I am an American but I live in Italy).
I feel great! So far my symptoms have been in remission. I usually have increased symptoms in the winter from November to March, why nobody knows, but this year I feel amazing. I found out that coffee, vinegar and gluten are killers for me. I am an Ex-Olympic athlete, I was in the Los Angles Olympics in 1984.
An Italian film company produced a documentary about my life called Ride to Finish. This is my site http://www.ridetofinish.com/ ”
“It has been a year now since I have read your book , the biggest element that I found that bothers me and still does is some gluten. I now make my own bread and pasta now which is a lot cheaper and better I must say!
I pretty much eat that was reactive for me before, except vinegar, that’s still a killer. My MS has been good, I haven’t had any episodes in over a year. I always had problems in the winter . Last year I had nothing which is good. Changing my eating habits changed my life.
This past year I rode 16,000km on my bike that is my tops and I have to say I feel 20 years younger if that is possible. I qualified for the Paris-Brest-Paris next year in 2015 for the fourth time , the ride is held every 4 years.
Lyn, a ride we do here every year racing across Italy and back 630km non stop, it took me 5 hours less than 3 years ago. Took me 28 hours instead of 32 hours! I know your book helped me with my MS and as an athlete.”
And finally just this week he sent me this-
“Lyn, get the message out “non mollare” don’t give up. Until 4 years ago it was my bike and “non mollare” that kept me walking. Thanks to The Plan, I feel 20 years younger and have found that by identifying my reactive foods, I know I can confront this disease and anything it throws at me.
And here is Tony’s gift to you- this video- Non Mollare- it shows him qualifying for the Los Angeles Olympics, how he found out he had MS, and how the spirit of “don’t give up” became his mantra.
Remember, your body ALWAYS wants to heal, reducing inflammation is key. Find the foods that work for YOUR chemistry and you will achieve your best weight and your best health!
Yours in health,
