Get Off The Couch featuring The Live Debate (DEBUT Performance)

Do any of you know who Anthony D'Amato is? Well, he is more than likely the biggest Paleo success story that you will ever here. He went from 385 pounds to 165 pounds. I'm lucky to call him my friend as we first met in Chicago last year.

He is the lead singer in his band. He has an AMAZING voice and you will literally be BLOWN AWAY by his voice and transformation. It's time that his story get's heard folks.

I hope you will join me for this event. You do have to pay for a ticket of course but it's only $7!!.

What follows are the details taken from the facebook event page:

      I hate to say this but I'm no longer able to make it. In at the train station right now to go back home to GR. Anthony knows this. PLEASE still go. You will really enjoy it. Anthony rocks. He's a massive inspiration and his story will be on my website next year.

    This is perfect; I have acupuncture scheduled right after work on this day around this same area - almost TOO convenient for me. I'll be there!
