I began the Paleo diet because I was recently diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and I am 41 years old, a nurse and I have a 4 year old at home. I cannot afford to take the immuno suppressant drugs that are normally prescribed for RA. I did some quick research and started a strict Paleo diet 25 days ago. I had some repeat tests done one weeks ago. I have decreased my inflammation markers by about half and my pain is all but gone. I have also lost 15 pounds since I started. I have been using the myfitnesspal.com app on my phone to keep track of what I eat just in case I feel poorly the next day, it is also a wonderful resource. I have had to go to the extreme form of Paleo (utilizing grass fed, wild caught, and organic) in order to naturally reduce the inflammation in my body. I am allergic to non steroidal anti inflammatory medications and so this was a fantastic, non pharmacological based plan to deal with my new diagnosis. I hope to put the RA into full remission then attempt at 85/15% plan unless I have a flair up and then I would revert back to the strict Paleo diet if needed. What a wonderful life change this is!
Sandy – Congratulations! This is wonderful news :)
I researched the Paleo diet for a month before I actually signed up. I was doubting that I could give up all the things I “couldn’t” live without. Bread, Shredded Wheat, ice cream, bread, bread, bread. I finally jumped in and said now or never. I can’t believe that it’s been 30 days already! I never remember to weigh myself and when I did and logged my weight into my Fitbit, I received an instant message congratulating me on on losing 25 pounds! In addition to the weight loss, I found that I am able to concentrate more and am not as hyper as I was 31 days ago. I no longer think of this as a diet, it’s now my way of life.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
That is awesome Denene! I am so glad you shared your story.
I went on Paleo one month ago out of desperation, because I couldn’t get an appointment with my pain Dr for a cortisone shot. My arm was very painful and my hand and fingers numb! I am now pain free and off of my pain meds, mobic, blood pressure meds and omeprazole! I felt awful at first, but realized it was because my blood pressure dropped so low. I have had this inflammation for many years and my only regret is that I didn’t discover this sooner. My blood pressure is perfect now. Oh, and I also lost 20 lbs without even trying!
Hooray Jo Anne! I am so glad you stuck through the transition and that Paleo is working for you.
what is the difference between the flex and full shopping list?
Great question, Patricia Z. – The flex shopping list is a 6-day shopping list for people who what a cheat day or just find that over the week they have too much food with the 7-day list. You can also customize your meal plan and shopping lists by logging and printing your editing versions.
