Amazed After Only 11 Days!
Written by: Patti
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
