My diet is not a fad, but a lifestyle. I do my best to eat whole, organic foods and avoid grains and sugar. I eat similar to Paleo, but they do TOO much honey and maple syrup for me… I eat really similar to the WHEAT BELLY plan, but I do allow quinoa occasionally, though Dr. Davis doesn’t recommend it. Why have I chosen this path?
For years, I suffered with an autoimmune condition. I had several actually. My research included reading books by Dr. Doug Kauffman, Dr. William Davis who wrote WHEAT BELLY and has a wonderful Facebook page, and Dr. David Perlmutter, who wrote GRAIN BRAIN. I watched videos from several sources and no matter where I turned, it became clear that if I wanted to feel good and prosper into old age, I needed to kick grains and sugar to the curb.
So, in July 2010, I made a once and for all decision to embrace eating healthy and that meant NOT eating grains and sugar and eating as many other healthy foods as possible, meaning lots and lots of organic fruits and veggies, grassfed beef and poultry.
What happened? I lost weight. I sleep better and I have way more energy. Over the years, I have tried many medications: prescription, over the counter and natural alternatives. They all helped somewhat, but when I finally made a decision to ALWAYS EAT HEALTHY, no matter what, my autoimmune issues went away.
I have no regrets! I don’t miss the pain that came from bad choices. I have embraced the lifestyle of healthy choices. I have embraced FEELING GOOD!
