Tanka fan reaches goal to fit into a Tanka T-shirt by following the paleo diet
David Brown Eyes, one of our favorite Tanka fans, now fits into one of our 2X T-shirts after we first reported his decision to go on a weight-loss journey. Among gaining better health and nutrition, it was one of David's goals to finally be able to wear a Tanka shirt. Below is his "before" photo.



He said he obtained his results through a paleo diet -- dropping grains, sugar, legumes, dairy and high carbs.

David, who is one-fourth Oglala Lakota, follows us regularly on our Facebook page and posted on our wall yesterday about his journey. You can read about his personal challenge on his blog Ikcewicasa, which means "common man" in Lakota.

He's already achieving much success and we wish him good luck. Keep checking back here to track his progress!
