Anyone else with this lifestyle?

Seriously changed my life for the better drastically. No longer depressed and anxious like I was (it was severe) I feel HAPPY for the first time in years and years. My blood pressure has regulated, my pulse is normal. I feel fantastic AND lost 50 lbs.

It was xanax and ativan for me. Loads of them. GOODBYE PHARMA.

Quoting Hunnybadgerkins:

I spent 11 years on xanax and valium. I was a mess. Anxiety was crippling. I still have panic attacks but not nearly as bad.


Quoting HelloSweetie:

I was literally an anxious wreck 4 months ago. It ruled my life. So scary. And depression. :(

Now I have a thousand times more energy and anxiety is so rare.

Quoting Hunnybadgerkins:

Definitely saw an improvement in my body composition. My anxiety is better too.

Oh yes! A Whole30 will do wonders for you!!

Quoting Silvertears1275:

I'm reading "It Starts With Food" right now, which I believe promotes a modified Paleo.  I'm seriously considering it...

If you have questions or just want to talk about it, please hit me up. I'm VERY passionate about it as it's literally been the best thing I've ever done for myself.

We are similar to paleo, except we do peanuts & potatoes. We aren't doing artificial colors/flavors, dairy, or gluten. These are the things we are focusing on.

I credit no grain and adding organ meats with the disappearance of ppd and sad from my life.

What is Paleo?

Paleo is short for Paleolithic, and the premise of a Paleo diet centers around the idea that our bodies have not adapted sufficiently to eating foods that weren’t available to us 10,000 years ago. It is thought that more than 70% of food consumed today was never available in Paleolithic times.  We put so much processed food into our bodies; most which us unhealthy.  The advances in agriculture and mass food production have caused us to move away from eating real food; food meant to work with our bodies for optimal health.

 A Paleo diet involves eating meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, little starch, some fruit and no sugar.  It means no grains, legumes, dairy or alcohol.  It means staying away from all processed foods. It means eating as our hunter-gathers ancestors did.  The Standard American Diet (SAD) is riddled with refined sugars, adulterated vegetable oils, dairy products and grains all of which can lead to obesity, heart disease and type-2 diabetes. Diet-related chronic diseases represent the largest cause of death in America.  These diseases were rare or nonexistent in the Paleolithic era and can largely be blamed on excessive consumption of modern foods including cereals, refined sugars, processed vegetable oils and industrially-raised meats.

I haven't been able to work in organ meats yet. Bone broth has been soooo good for me though.
