Hello. I've been dairy free for over a year. Gluten free for at least six months. Then I cut out corn. Then went sugar. I felt better with each thing I cut. Paleo makes sense to me. I try to eat Paleo as much as possible, but I like rice! and beans!
I joined up for recipe ideas and reinforcement. ;)
Health issues made me make the changes. Thyroid issues, autoimmune issues, etc. I feel better eating this way. I also realize these issues run in my family and my grandmother through trial-and-error ended eating pretty Paleo.
My kids are teenagers, they support me, but they don't want to give up all the things I have. My daughter likes the weight she has lost eating this way, but my son wants his candy, hot dogs, etc.
I've been doing yoga for over 5 years, but had been too tired to do much of any kind of exercise. Going Paleo has given me more energy (the thyroid medication also helps!). I'm jogging for the first time in my life and I am going to run a 5K in August.
