I’m Paulee Peters. Wish I learned about Paleo lifestyle before I got sick and gained alot of weight. I wanted to try paleo for weight loss and health reasons (I was diabetic for a long time).
I was given the lecture from my doctor time after time about what was going to happen to me He tried to scare me into shape.
He would tell me about loss of vision, nerve damage, kidney disease.
I knew I had to do something before it was too late. I didn’t want to be the first to go before my parents.
I lost a total of 7.5 pounds in 4 years doing vegan, weight watchers, low fat-high exercise, gluten free. you name it, I most likely did it.
After I stopped all the weight came back.
After all, the ADA diet didn’t work for me. These were the so called expert nutritionists. Then, I went Vegan, which helped a bit.
But I was getting hungry and still feeling tired all the time with no energy.
I was introduced to the paleo diet from a colleague at work whose neighbor had success with it. I started reading everything i could on paleo diet. 3 days later, I decided to give the diet a shot as I had nothing to lose.
Within 1 week I was feeling great and alive again! For the first time in years I didn’t feel depressed anymore. I started feeling strong again.
A few more weeks went by and I started to join a gym and work out twice a week. Now I am at the gym 3 to 4 days a week with incredible stamina. This has allowed me to enjoy playing basketball once again.
The great thing about being on the Paleo lifestyle is 2 things.
I have also lowered my A1C significantly to the point I am no longer diabetic. And I was able to get off the medications I was taking for my diabetes.
Going on a Paleo diet was the best thing I ever did for myself.
I could have avoided getting sick and gaining weight in the first place.
