So, Where has Paleo gotten me over the last 6 weeks?

13 Feb

Greetings all, I just wanted to give a little update on how things are going now that I’ve hit the 6 week mark on Paleo.

First…My Knowledge Base. I’ve read around 5 books concerning the paleo lifestyle, and reviewed COUNTLESS blogs and blog posts. With every day I become more convinced that the evidence supporting Paleo is unmatched, and sadly, will also never be mainstreamed by the government or media. That’s just reality, folks. Big government and big business will win every time. That said, it does not mean that educated people can’t both live heatlhier lives, and try to get others to do the same. I’ll keep reading, and plan on posting some interesting facts I’ve learned about Paleo in the coming weeks.

Second…My Personal Experience. So six weeks, I’ve lost 17 pounds, never feel hungry, very rarely crave things to eat, sleep like a champ, feel more energized, and just FEEL healthier. Oh, and I stopped the blood pressure medicine I’ve taken for almost 6 years two weeks ago, and my pressure is normal. Quite amazing, it really is. This is real change folks…and it’s not hard.

Third…My Friends’ Experience. I’ve convinced no fewer than 5 friends and family to go Paleo, and they have all experienced similar results to myself. The two main constants are people sleep much better, and they are never hungry. I just don’t see how people can justify their eating habits when they feel so poorly doing so.

So, where do I stand? Well, I certainly am convinced paleo is right for me, and for my family. My kids have benefitted as well from my wife and I’s dietary changes, and they I believe also feel better, even though we are not as strict with them as we are ourselves. Also, I’ve convinced that it is right for certain patients I see at my clinic.
