Tonight I had dinner with my good friends Djuan and Brandon – two very awesome people. Djuan is on a quest to climb seven peaks on seven continents. He was one of the first people to go skydiving over Everest. It’s called HALO jumping – high altitude, low opening. Crazy.
The real story is that of his nephew Brandon. A year ago Brandon was seriously overweight at 375 lbs. Djuan staged an intervention and brought Brandon to Hawaii to get him back in shape. They made a commitment to each other (they actually signed a document!): Brandon was going to get his weight back to normal, Djuan would take care of everything Brandon needed to get that done. 6 months later, Brandon has lost over 100 lbs.
Brandon’s also an awesome cook. He made chicken breast with lightly sauteed tomatos, mushroom, and spinach for a total of 350 calories.
