So today is Day 8 of eating on the Paleo diet and I am so incredibly pleased. I could go on and on about different things that I like about it, but I'm sure I'll get to all of them individually at some point. For now I'm going to say that what I love the most about it is the way I feel. There were a rough couple of days at the beginning, as we were told there would be, but after my body got used to not being inundated with sugar, I started to feel great, and now I feel even better. My body has stopped feeling those huge up and down swings from when I'm hungry to when I eat. When I get hungry, I eat, and when I eat, I gradually gain energy, but I don't have this instant, "ahhhhh" sensation that now that I ate I'm ok. I've also made great strides in the mental aspects of eating that I've talked about before.
I'm also really pleased with the results. From a numbers standpoint I've lost about 5.5 pounds this week, going from 190 to 184.4. I know some of this wait is water and inflammation, but I feel like I look better. Whether or not I do, I'm not sure, nor do I really care. I'm putting week 2 pictures up more to see if there is a progression, like I hop there will be.
