Wow, looking hot!
Wow, looking hot!
Wow, after plateauing in the 168 to170 lb area for 3 weeks, I suddenly dropped to 165. Diet is still basically the same, perhaps a few less carbs a couple of days last week, but I did start taking 500 mcg of Kelp based iodine per day. It could just be coincidental but still it makes you wonder if it stimulated my thyroid in some way. Also I added another interval session at the track last week. I haven't weighed 165 lbs since high school!

You're an inspiration! An encouragement (if I needed one) to continue on the Paleo path.
I'm a 63 year old woman, just three weeks into my reformed eating system. In this short time I have lost 18 lbs, despite enjoying a variety of tasty real food and never feeling hunger.
My digestion has improved - never even thought of reaching for my customary antacid - and no nasty bloated feeling.
Just a thought regarding grains ...
My husband's horse cannot tolerate being bedded on straw - he coughs continually, and we can only put it down to the chemicals they spray the crops with. We've tried wheat, barley, oat straw - all with the same result. He's now on woodchip, and never coughs now. So tell me ... if a large animal like a horse can be so badly affected by simply lying on straw from the grains we are encouraged to eat, what sort of effect does it have on us if we're actually expected to EAT the stuff? Never again, no way.
I feel so much better after just three weeks of this lifestyle change (not diet!) that it's a sheer joy to follow.
Thanks for your example.
