  • New from Portland! - Chronic illness and weight control...

    Hello everyone!

    I've been reading MDA for a few months, but just decided to register for the forum. I've been eating somewhat Paleo/Primal before I knew it had a name. I realized I was gluten intolerant back in 2005, I stopped eating grains two years later, I NEVER liked beans, etc. I still have a hard time "cheating", with sugar, dairy (especially cream) and some grains.

    I'm seeing a Natropathic Doctor for my Multiple Sclerosis (diagnosed in early 2009) and he's putting me on a strict Paleo diet. I know I'm going to need some support. I also want to lose the last 10 lbs that I've struggled with for years since I lost the first 50 six years ago. I also have PCOS so weight has always been a struggle since adulthood.

    As of Sunday, I'm going to track what I eat. Thanks in advance for your support!

    I guess you probably already know about Dr. Terry Wahls, a medical doctor who's using Paleo for the same purpose:

      Lewis,

      Thanks for the link to her website! I've watched her TED Talk video, but actually haven't looked at her site yet.

          Hi from Southeast! (for now). Anyone up for a Portland Primals get together? Maybe a picnic?

            Thanks @SoccerGrok @tfarny!

            I am definitely up for a Portland Primals get together. I'm still somewhat new here and can use more contacts.

                Great, I'll start a new thread and see if we can get 1/2 dozen Cavepersons in Laurelhurst Park or a similar spot for a picnic, or we could do a primal-friendly restaurant?
