2. Really? You NEVER get sick? - One of the most common health claims I see on nutrition forums follows this format "I do this therefore I never get sick". I'm sorry but I remain skeptical that if you eat well you'll never get sick. Even if you ate exactly like Grok, you face daily situations that Grok would almost never run into. For one, you interact with far more people who come from far greater distances. Just going to school I interact with hundreds of people directly and probably thousands more indirectly. AND, our immune systems don't work by NOT getting sick. They develop and get stronger by getting sick occasionally. You don't build muscle by sitting on the couch, and you certainly don't build a well functioning immune system without contracting your fair share of flu viruses.
Since I went primal/paleo over a year ago I haven't been sick. I interact with a lot of people and a lot of kids because of all the children in my family. Plus my fiance is a pediatric nurse and she comes home with tons of germs from sick kids all the time. But I still never get sick. I used to get sick all the time but since I removed the big culprits, gluten and dairy, I just never get ill. I work out 6 days a week but I also get adequate amounts of Vitamin D via both the sun and D3 supplements. I also get 8 hours of sleep every night in a completely dark room. I believe all of these things combined really can bolster your immune system. I normally get right around 100g of carbs a day. I don't need to lose weight so I don't do VLC and plus I need at least the 100g of carbs to fuel my workouts as they are really strenous.
Do you have any gut issues? Normally your immune system is greatly influenced by your digestive health. That was definitely my case. I had IBS pre paleo and I would always have bad allergies and the common cold was very common for me. Now that my gut is perfectly healed I just don't get sick.

People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.
