Welcome to the Human Performance Outliers Podcast with hosts Dr. Shawn Baker and Zach Bitter. For this episode, we welcome Jeff Cyr. Jeff was always overweight as a child and at the age of 17 he weighed 345 lbs. In 1997, Jeff was diagnosed with severe lumbar spinal stenosis. By 2004, Jeff was on his third back surgery:
1- Laminectomy and fusion of the lower (lumbar) back in 1997.
2- Cervical neck fusion in May of 2001.
3- Laminectomy and fusion of the mid back area in 2004.
Through diet and exercise, Jeff has managed to make massive changes to his state of health. In this episode we go over much of Jeff's journey, but for an even more detailed look at Jeff's journey and hurdles along the way please visit his written interview with Ivor "a.k.a Fat Emperor" Cummins here.
