Welcome to The Ruttan Evolution Experience - a blog that tracks my evolution from average Canadian guy to healthy and fit.

My name is Jody Ruttan and I write The Ruttan Evolution Experience to track my journey (evolution) to a healthier person while assisting others with the same goal.

From Sickness to Health

Back in 2008 I started getting "sick". Not stomach flu or anything like that, just not feeling very well all the time. I was tired, apathetic, getting weak, irritable, and frankly getting depressed about the whole situation. I didn't know it then, but I was falling victim to a food intolerance that was wreaking havoc on my whole body.

After several rounds of "guess what's wrong with me", and insensitive medical professionals that just stared at me like I had three heads when I described my symptoms, I turned to the mighty Google for some late night self diagnosis. Several sites pointed me to a possible food intolerance, which led to cutting out food groups one at a time for some self experimentation. Turns out, on top of the already known lactose intolerance, I'm gluten intolerant.

Now that I'm eating healthier, I'm feeling better, it's time to regain my physical health.

Why The Ruttan Evolution Experience?

This site is dedicated to helping me track my progress and evolution to a healthier person , as well as assist others in their journey by sharing my experiences. I'd really like if others shared some tips with me along the way as well. The comment sections are open!
