About This Site

The Promise Diet™ and this website were started by Reid Wilson as a way to encourage, motivate, inform, and equip people to lose weight permanently and improve their health in the process.

In addition to being someone who has lost 120 pounds while being radically transformed by the power of The Promise Diet™ and PUBIMU™ Promises made to his wife and three (now four!) young children, Reid is the IT Director at the Queensboro Shirt Company, which offers custom-embroidered apparel over the internet with great prices and low minimums. (Queensboro was the first company to let businesses and organizations get shirts with their own logos embroidered on them and has been doing that for over 20 years for tens of thousands of customers.) In particular he is focused on web application development using LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP).

Reid has a B.S. in math and an M.A. in linguistics and taught at the college level for ten years in the U.S. and the Middle East, during which time he created a website to help language learners learn language.

Quoting Reid, "I'm convinced that The Promise Diet has a message many are waiting for, a message that can radically transform the lives of many obese people, just as it has transformed me from a 326-pound caffeine-addicted happy but undisciplined junk food junkie and lover of food to a 206-pound -- and still dropping! -- happy but undisciplined lover of food. My hope is that the new Promise Diet website will be a resource to help bring about that kind of change for many people."

In addition to losing weight, Reid has seen his blood sugar levels and blood pressure drop (A1C from 5.9% to 4.7% and BP nowadays in the one-teens over upper sixties) , his level of fitness increase (14.8 METS on a treadmill stress test in August 2005), and his cholesterol improve significantly.

Reid (age 37) and his family live in beautiful Wilmington, North Carolina in the southeastern United States.

If you are morbidly obese, this website could save your life. I've not completed my journey, but I've lost over 115 pounds so far, most of it since starting something I'm calling "The Promise Diet." You can too, one promise at a time."
