10 years ago I weighed in at 275lbs, tons of health problems, and only 28 years old. Depressed and lost, I had finally decided to stop being a victim and changed my diet. I had to do it, nobody was going to do it for me.
Eating a conventional clean diet full of whole grains, I dropped 80lbs, but still didn’t feel well. I was severely anemic, my skin, hair, and nails looked terrible, and I was having horrible stomach pains.
Time went on, and I struggled to drop the weight. I was determined to do so, but ran into a wall. My anemia was so bad that my doctor diagnosed me with a rare form of cancer that left me with 3 months to live. Though totally distraught, I was not buying it nor giving in.
Doing my own research I heard about Celiac, and after years of demanding to be tested, I was finally diagnosed with Celiac.
Upon my new autoimmune discovery I ran across The Paleo Solution. At first glance I thought it was a fad diet, but upon further reading saw it was an amazing way to eat if you couldn’t eat gluten.
So two years ago I gave it a shot. I removed all the ”no-no” foods, began to listen to podcasts, and read everything I could about Paleo. Slowly but surely my iron increased, my nails and hair were stronger, my complexion cleared up, and I’ve never felt healthier.
Paleo is the obvious way to eat no matter what your health condition is, but definitely the way to go if you have been diagnosed with Celiac.
MAHALO for making the information accessible and helping me change my life.
