Amazed After Only 11 Days!

Written by: Patti

Dear Robb:
I have been following the basic Paleo plan for slightly over one week now.  My first week, I lost 8.5 pounds.  Where this might be typical, I also have Scleroderma (Progressive Systemic Sclerosis) and a multitude of other maladies.  I noticed a HUGE difference in just 4 days!  With Scleroderma, I have puffy joints and edema.  After the 4th day, I noticed that the puffiness and edema had subsided.  After the 7th day, it was minimal.  I have more energy, no blotting, and generally feel “well” all around.  My physician suggested this lifestyle for me, saying, “Just try it for a few weeks and see what you think.”  I must say, I am amazed, and my husband is so happy for me.  He is extremely supportive and said that he doesn’t mind eating some of the various paleo-prepared meals.  He also likes the fact that I’m weening myself off of artificial sweeteners.  I don’t crave sugar and I don’t have the daily diet soda as before.  This is only after 11 days.  I have another doctor’s appointment and blood work in May, and I will let you know how I fare.  I enjoy your site and the recipes I have found.  To your health, Patti
