I've been on primal 8 weeks, but for the last 1.5 weeks I've also been on an antiobiotic and have not been as careful. I figure the antiobiotic is busy killing all the good bacteria as fast as possible. I'm also preparing for next week, buying a chest freezer and studying grass-fed farm lists, cleaning out the garage so we have a place to put the freezer, etc.
Sodium seems to be in everything. It takes some time to completely change living . eating habits.
Yup! I went hog wild on greens at first. Now I've sort of backed off the hog wild part and eat more roots than greens. What proportion should that be?
My problems were sure big to me anyway. 10 weeks ago I thought I was dying. I'm certainly guilty of over enthusiam here. But the results have been astounding. Other people comment on how much more energy I have. I feel good most of the time. All the other problems are gone, the last on is constipation. Yes, maybe others will soon show up. And probably my enthusiam will crash, but please don't pop my bubble just yet.
I think bubble-popping may happen when I go for another blood test for cholesterol, and I'm postponing that test for a few months. The whole 7-8 year series of problems started with Kaiser's Cholesterol Center, they're after me with intent to kill. They never give up. I'm allergic to every statin and also other non-statin drugs. For years I took 2000 iu Naicin daily and I've quit that also because one long term possible side-effect is stomach problems. Prior to this my Cholesterol was 530, which sent the Center mad. If this diet works it will be like a miracle. But if it does not lower the Cholesterol I'm going to ignore it. I'd rather die of a heart attack than live as I was.
I sincerely appreciate everyone's comments and help.
