The statistics are that I'm 63 years old and two full years Primal this month. The "reality" is that I am "younger" now than I was 10 years ago. During that 10 years I suffered debilitating arthritis, high blood pressure and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. My health is vastly improved, I have been able to reduce or eliminate most meds. I have had a wonderful improvement in mood, strength, energy, outlook and have lost and am still losing weight. What's not to love? I will never go back to that sad SAD.

emoticon Most people feel great on this plan, hopefully you will too! As a diabetic you want to still watch your carbs, even healthy natural ones, and make sure you balance them with fat/protein to avoid the spikes/drops of glucose. For getting started, www.marksdailyapple.com is great and if you search it I bet there is specifics for a diabetic.

Welcome and I am new as well an older than you. I just started Paleo last week because of my Doctor telling me this would be all that would work with my health issues. I found incredible energy in a few days. I have the book Paleo diet by Robb Wolf. It explains the process well. For me what is difficult is getting all of the other things that I have been taught about what is healthy. I wish you well.

I just joined this team as I have been educating myself on the Paleo/Primal lifestyle. I am 52 years old and diabetic, so the possibility of controlling my blood sugar levels and getting off of medication appeal to me greatly. I am wondering how older folks like myself feel about the diet, what their experiences are, and any advice they might have for me.

Thanks in Advance
