I feel like I’ve struck gold!
I have found a whole online community dedicated to healing their autoimmune diseases with my favourite way of eating, paleo. I have been struggling with my low carb diet, a diet that always usually works for me (when I stick to it) but hasn’t shown any good results for some reason and has felt awkward and just didn’t feel right. but now after reading ‘The Thyroid Solution’ by Doctor Ridha Arem, I am finally understanding just how much hormones have a say in metabolism and weight loss. I think that I have over reduced my carb intake and my thyroid hasn’t liked it. Also I just got my copy of Sarah Ballantyne’s book ‘The Paleo Approach’ which I stayed up all night to read and haven’t let it from my side – I finally get it!
Don’t get me wrong I still love the low carb high fat diet and it really works, but after five weeks being 100% good, and not eating anything off the menu, it felt wrong and I was still feeling that I had a sluggish metabolism whilst on it. My hormones are really out of wack – especially as I went on the mini pill for 3 month and come off it, it’s really had an effect on my metabolism and weight loss.
So why am I so excited about the Autoimmune Protocol Paleo Diet (AIP), well I think that I have found my lifetime eating plan. Its got everything that I like to eat and it’s working to reverse autoimmune diseases and is totally backed up by scientific evidence.
The autoimmune paleo diet treats the cause of an illness rather than medicating the symptoms
It’s still very much an underground way of eating but if you are interested in healing your body whilst eating delicious nutrient dense real foods, why not join me on my journey to great health? I will be posting much more about the AIP and working out my own recipes and diet plans with foods found locally here in the UK.
