I've been on the PB for about 12 days now. Being off processed carbs and grains has made a noticeable difference in my energy level, body composition and general well-being.
I'm still reading the book, but wonder if there's been any feedback and/or info on the effect of a primal diet and lifestyle on osteoarthritis. I have it in both hips and it's abnormal for my age. I recently turned 40 and have led a very active lifestyle for most of my adult life. I used to run a lot and have surfed regularly for about 22 years. I used to do yoga (ashtanga, power) religiously, but have backed off to about twice a week.
However, the feedback I've received from orthos, chiropractors, etc. is that there simply shouldn't be the amount of ligament degradation and bone spurs going on in my hip sockets. I'm 6'6" and weigh about 185 lbs, so it's not an issue of too much weight on the joints.
The last ortho I went to had a very blunt bedside manner and said that I would need a hip replacement in about 10 years. That being said, I am not content to accept this fate and am wondering what I can do, besides what I'm already doing, to mitigate and reverse these osteoarthritis effects. It's not debilitating at this point, although you won't find me doing any deep hip stretches.
Anybody have any experience or feedback on this?
