Almost all the cracks that had been developing in my health around age 48 are now resolved: joint pain 90 percent less; deeper sleep; clear skin; small premenstrual headache gone.
No problem with hunger or cravings. The wheat-sugar addiction has been broken!
Weight loss. I'm the thinnest I've ever been in my adult life.
Plenty of energy to get through my day. Not one day have I dragged my feet, even if I had short sleep the night before. This is not to say that I want to play tennis when I get home in the evening. But I can do everything I have to do in a day, and when the sun goes down, I'm ready for a good rest.
Optimism and mental clarity. People cite mental clarity often, but I'd like to give a few examples of what it means to me. (1) When drifting off to sleep one night, lots of random memories of places I had been in the distant past kept bubbling up. Strange and interesting. (2) Insights into personal relationships. I feel as if I can figure out more easily what's going on in people's heads. Though I could be deluded about this! (3) Watching old movies I've seen before, plot points and themes I never thought about before jump out at me.
Haven't woken up with a stiff neck in 16 months. A few minor colds in 2012, and nothing so far this year, when I have been more strictly primal.
