My Paleo(ish) Experience
My husband and I started this new lifestyle (him being a veteran of it already) a couple of weeks ago. You basically cut out processed food, breads and dairy (which I'm still drinking my milk by the way). It's exactly the type of lifestyle I should be living anyway with PCOS and Pre-diabetes.
I've felt great since a few days after I started. Yes, I've gotten hungry sometimes but that's because I didn't have a prepared snack ready to go. It takes some preparation and a strong will to do this, but I promise it is SO worth it. I would say the hardest thing is when I leave the house. There are a couple days a week that I don't eat that much strictly "paleo" foods which is alright as long as I stick to it in the long run.
I've already loss close to 8 pounds. That's HUGE to me.
A plus side to Paleo - YOU CAN STILL EAT CHOCOLATE AND DRINK WINE. (In limited quantities)
Dark chocolate and red wine. Right up my alley.
So that's all I really have so far. Here's a list of foods I eat regularly:
- Sunflower Seeds (since I'm allergic to tree nuts)
- Dark Chocolate
I also take a Prenatal Vitamin, Cinnamon Supplement, Magnesium Supplement and Chromium Supplement to help with my blood sugar and metabolism.
If you're thinking about it or want to talk about it, let me know! I'll be happy to help!
