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.

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.

Im the same. I make my own stock but I just can't get into organ meat. Apparently I really liked liver as a kid though... ugh lol

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

Quoting eema.gray:

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

I never did. In fact, I was a vegitarian most of my life. HOW- I can't fathom it now as my main food is meat :P
