So far, so good on the paleo diet. My skin is clearing up and my psoriasis is getting slowly better. My husband's eczema is doing better (albeit - VERY slowly) and Elliot's teeth are starting to remineralize. I have a lot more energy and feel really good.
We're not low carbing it, like some of the variations of the diet suggest. We eat lot's of fruits and veggies still - totally got a taste for them while we were vegetarians. We're just focusing on organic meat, dairy, eggs, and produce. And absolutely no grains, vegetable oils, or refined sugars.
Since we've been on it, we've managed to find a few things that James is allergic to - citrus, tomatoes, kiwi, and pineapple. Add that to tree nuts and shellfish. The poor guy was so constantly inflamed before that we could never tell one reaction from another. Now it's much more obvious so this should help us clear up his skin even more.
I haven't really lost any more weight (just the 6 pounds at the beginning), but the fat on my hips is just melting off. I think I'm replacing it with a fair amount of muscle just from playing and being more active.
But it's still early. We'll have to see how this all shakes out over time.
