One Year Paleo Anniversary

Friday, August 9, was my one year anniversary! Paleo Strong! Can’t believe where I was last year, compared to where I am this year. It’s been amazing so far!

It’s crazy how I have just adopted this as the way it is…me…out of all people. If you asked me a year ago about it, I would have told you I would have to be crazy to change…well, I guess I’m crazy then. 🙂

There is a frightening statistic about how many people in America are diabetic or pre-diabetic. There is a direct correlation to the disease and diet.  I read a study that compared the Paleo diet to the Mediterranean diet in people with type 2 diabetes. Basically, the big difference between the two, is grains and dairy are NOT discouraged in the Mediterranean diet. They discovered that people who followed the Mediterranean diet showed little to no improvement with the diabetes symptoms; anyone who followed Paleo actually showed reverse symptoms to diabetes, and at the end of the study, had normal glucose levels.  Celiac and Diabetes are connected, in that, 1% of the population has celiac and 10% of people with type 1 diabetes, have celiac.  But some articles I have read do say to get tested for celiac and a gluten intolerance before eliminating them completely.

“I can. I will. End of story.”

I’m a 36 year old kid at heart. I reached a low point in my life where I felt like I needed to take control before I didn’t have the choice, and that’s when I decided that I needed to change my lifestyle. It’s going to be my life long goal to always achieve optimum health…I am still young after all. Here I am, over one year into my Paleo journey, and I never felt better.
