Day 9 Update of Paleo eating and I feel great — energized and there is a noticeable change in the way I feel. Even at my most energetic, I felt what i would describe as sluggish. It has never been something I could put my finger on but I have more than once talked to my general p Doctor explaining the way I felt and that there had to be a reason for it. I shouldn’t be that tired all the time — maybe it had to do with my body’s response to eating wheat/gluten. My big sis, Dee has a diagnosed gluten sensitivity but it never occurred to me that I could have one too but that it affected me differently. I am beginning to think that maybe that’s what was causing my overall fatigue. I have never gone for this long without gluten/wheat products of any kind. In fact it has been a staple in my diet always — as I am sure it is with most of the people out there.
-even waking up at o’dark thirty seems easier — I didn’t say EASY though, it is 5a afterall!! And I have noticed that I havent hit that super tired wall I seem to always hit mid afternoon.
I want to point out that when I decided to try the Paleo approach to my diet — I set a goal of 2 weeks before deciding if its working and whether or not it’s the right thing for me. Change doesn’t have to happen all at once. You can give something a chance, try it out — and then decide. It’s the same with making healthy changes in your life. Want to start an exercise program, stop drinking soda, cut back on drinking wine? Set a goal for the trial period, Once you reach that trial goal, evaluate how it went, how you felt, improvements, changes, then commit. Small changes or big changes — they can all lead to the same path!
