Does anyone else follow a Paleo diet?
I've always had weight and food issues and when I had my 1st child at only 17 I put on 40kg! I cruised along until I was pregnant with my 3rd and I ended up with severe gallstones. I had to go on a no fat diet and in 6 months I lost over 20kg. Although the weight came off I felt terrible, always tired and lethargic, cranky, irritable and craved the foods that I couldn't have so badly! I had the gallstones removed in 2012 and went back to eating like I was before and put all the weight back on and then some. Since then i've had really bad stomach problems, reacting to the food that I ate.
Three months ago I discovered and started the Paleo diet and it was a major lightbulb moment. I no longer have ANY stomach problems, I feel light and healthy, I don't get tired in the afternoons anymore and don't need coffee or V to give me energy. The weight is very steadily starting to come off and i've lost 8kg. I don't calorie count or have to weigh my portions. I no longer crave fast food or treats with refined sugar in them and i'm never hungry. I can happily sit next to someone eating pizza or macdonalds and not get cranky because i feel like i'm missing out.
I'd love to hear other's Paleo/ HFLC journeys
