First of all, a short introduction, so you know who is writing.
I am a 35 year old female from Germany (so please excuse any typings or grammar issues...).
I discovered the PB last August and immediately realized that this all makes perfectly sense. At that time I felt quite bad. I was tired most of the time, couldn't concentrate, had headaches almost every day and migraine once a week. I was diagnosed with chronic Lyme Disease at that time, too, which explained lots of my symptoms most doctors told me were harmless. I changed my doctor, and she had the knowledge and the right tests to diagnose the Lyme Disease. She also almost immediately realized that something might wrong with my thyroids. She decided first to check my thyroids, and then go on with the Lyme Disease.
At that time I started to reduce grain and sugar intake, and I went off Topamax, which didn't seem to help with my migraines, anyway. Instead I started to take magnesium. I immediately felt better, lost a little bit of weight, and my migraine almost dissapeared.
I am not perfectly primal. I eat dairy, nuts, chia seeds, fruits, potatoes (from our garden), rice (both potatoes and rice on a regular basis, but I cut back my portion size a lot), and grains if I can't avoid it. Not to forget dark chocolate (I already had too much of that today...).
My better half doesn't want to go primal. He is overweight and has several minor health issues, so I am absolutely sure he would benefit from the PB. But no chance. At least he supports me as good as he can, and we try to find meals that we can eat both (which means he doesn't make pizza or pasta anymore). But life without bread is something he can't imagine. He prefers his bread while I eat eggs and bacon for breakfast.
We live in the city. But most weekends we spend at my father-in-laws house, which is in a wonderful surrounding, walking distance from hills and the forest. We have a large vegetable garden there, which means in summer we have lots of fresh veggies and fruit. At the moment there are only a few brussels sprouts left. The downside of this weekends is the food there. The whole family loves bread, cake, cookies. They don't understand what I am doing, but at least they aren't angry if I prefer a salad or yoghurt with fresh fruit and nuts over their bread and I leave the cake for them.
I work 2-3 days a week. Scanning articles in different supermarkets. I have a bachelor degree in environmental science, and I am a safety-of-health-expert, but with my bad health I couldn't find a good job. So I don't have much money, but lots of time, and most of my work isn't seated, which is of course a good thing.
That should give you an idea about me!
