I never did summarize my Paleo Diet experience and give my final opinion.
For the entire month of May I ate a fully Paleo diet. I never did feel very hungry, so I liked that part of it. I did feel healthy, but my energy never did return. I never could run over 4 miles at a time.
I had a TON of stressful stuff happen in May, so I'm not sure what effect that had on the whole thing.
At the end of the month, I decided that Paleo eating just isn't for me.
I'm sure that for those folks who have allergy problems with gluten or dairy, it's just fabulous. But my body apparently cannot function properly without CARBS!
I will carry over the lessons about adding more veggies to my diet, but I will also be adding dairy and grains back in as well.
I totally love the part about eating WHOLE foods and cutting out all the processed crap. That part I totally bought into. But I cannot deny my body those carbs. I want to get back into my running program and I just couldn't do it on Paleo.
