In Topic: Going The Primal Route....

I cant tell you how much better I feel when I dont have them in my system. I was feeling so crappy after about 2 months of going gluten free and its amazing to go more than several hours without a gurgle or cramp or gas.


This has been my experience, as well. I haven't been off grains for long, but I have felt MUCH better without them.

It has been 8 months for me and I'm still not there (though there was a dramatic difference when I first went gluten free... I'm still not close to 100%). A new aquaintance at work recently told us it took her about a year. This actually encourage me, renewing hope that things still will get even better than they currently are.

By the way, my endoscopy was misleading. A waste of time and money.

Can any of you share what you eat in a day, ie. your menu plan?

Breakfast: This meal is tricky, because I can't handle eggs right now and vegetables are hard to eat in the morning when they aren't in an omlet or other egg dish. Our normal breakfast is...
- 1.5-2 high quality chicken sausages (no nitrates, no sweeteners except a little fruit juice, etc.)
- blueberries and pecans
- whatever vegetable I can make myself eat in the morning

Lunch: leftovers or...
- burger (just the meat) or chicken
- salad (we prepare a huge salad every few days to use for meals) or cooked vegetables

Dinner: we are currently experimenting with various paleo recipes that incorporate meat and a lot of vegetables. My current favorite is spaghetti squash with a homemade meaty, vegetable-loaded marinara sauce. We've also been eating slow cooker recipes that involve plenty of meat and vegetables.

Does anyone else feel like they eat ALOT compared to others?


Definitely.

In Topic: Juice Fast

I think fasts are a fantastic way to transition into major diet changes. I have done this at various stages throughout my life and it has really made long-term adjustments to my day to day diet much easier.

Also... the statement about headaches and nausea that you may experience: I honestly don't think sugar is a likely culprit in this. Especially if you are doing a healthy juice fast involving a lot of fresh vegetable juices (like in the documentary). Most likely, headaches and nausea experienced during extended fasts are due to detoxing. If you do a longer fast (30-40 days), you will often find that these symptoms go away after the initial detox period.

Anyway... I think it may work out very well for you.

I didn't buy any books...just steaks. ;)


Lol!

Thanks to this thread, I feel motivated to keep going with this. Thanks, everyone. My husband and I just went strictly paleo, but got hit with some sort of bug right when we started. (No, we weren't detoxing... it was the beginning of the first official day, so my body wouldn't even know anything was different yet.) After throwing up, all of the foods I'd just eaten pre-up-chuck didn't look appealing anymore. I really wanted to reach for comfort food (cheese!) when my appetite returned. (Comfort food that makes me feel sick, ironically.)

Anyway... I am sure this will be worth it.
