    So it seems . Thanks for suggesting the journal, Paula. Btw, I sent you a private message but your mail is full so it wasn't accepted.

    Well, Day Two of journaling here. I didn't feel like I wanted to write much about my primal journey when I started the journal yesterday, but then I found myself thinking about things that I wanted to share when I woke up this morning. As I can get around to it. I do want to say right now that while the dietary changes that I have made are central and so amazingly effective, exercise also promises to be mind blowing.

    I monitor my vitals - and my blood sugar - at home. I started the blood sugar monitoring in order to understand what my body does on a very low carb (VLC) diet - and to see what effect that specific foods have on my blood sugar. Then, I started testing my blood sugar before and after taking a walk around the neighborhood. Without fail, a walk lowers my blood sugar significantly.

    So glad to see you are keeping a journal! When I first started low carbing to control diabetes, I realized I could have an icecream if I took a walk afterwards. I quickly got into exercise because I saw the positive effects so immediately. "My body, my science experiment," worked so well for me that I tested my bg 4+ times a day for the first year.

    Hi Pam, thanks - and glad to see you here! Exercise does appear to be self-reinforcing.

    My local primal buddy remarked yesterday that my hair looks darker. I had thought so, too, recently - but hadn't said anything about it. I actually like my mostly silver hair. I am blessed to have nice hair that has turned such a pretty silver that the two stylists who cut it both independently have said they are glad that I don't color it. My hair is not dry or brittle like greying hair often is. The texture and oil/shine has hardly changed. Plus, I really didn't think my hair was lovely during the transition from auburn to silver. So, I don't particularly want to reverse this process.

    I have heard about people's hair getting darker again, but wasn't sure that I even believed it. Now, I wonder what's causing my hair to darken. Could it be the primal diet? Could it be the iodine therapy? Isn't hair color dependent on melatonin? Could this change indicate increasing melatonin levels? I HAVE been sleeping extra soundly lately. Anyone have any ideas or experiences to share?

    Seems that it is possible that replacing melanin in the body can cause gray hair to darken again. And, NO, I am not taking melatonin or related supplements. Both higher protein and iodine intake are implicated in increasing melanin. Will be interesting to see what happens over time. While I don't really care a lot about the color of my hair, I DO care about what increasing levels of melanin suggest about over all health - as well as also indicating if I'm on the right track with supplementation and other lifestyle matters.
