I have had Hashimoto’s for over 20 years and I have tried numerous diets. I tried the paleo lifestyle diet and it was great for me. I was eating a lot of foods that were good for me and I’ve been on it for over a year now. I lost a lot of weight and it was such a relief to see results on tests when I was really sick.
In the last few years the paleo diet has been taken off the market, and although I haven’t had an allergic reaction, I’ve had a few cases of food poisoning and I was given a few antibiotics for an infection I think may have been a bacterial infection. So I’m sure that the paleo diet isn’t for everyone.
You know when you eat something that has an allergy to something you know its bad for you, and you think, “If there was something I could eat that would be good for me, id say eat it.
One of the most surprising things about paleo is that it seemed to cause people to eat only foods with a low glycemic index. So after eating a lot of rice, I guess you could say I was eating more than half of it. It seems that people ate more of the high-GI carbs and less of the low-GI carbs because of the paleo diet. This is a problem because when you eat a lot of low GI carbs, you tend to gain weight.
I guess after all the blood sugar crashing that we were all experiencing as we went to the paleo diet, the one thing that we were eating that seemed to be good for us was a lot of processed foods. We ate more of those than we normally would, and this made us gain weight. And you know what, I kind of hate all of that fat. I think it’s bad for the blood sugar level.
I guess it’s not as bad as it seems. Although, if you were to eat the same amount of food as you normally would, you might end up gaining weight more quickly. I’m not sure if that’s just me, but I don’t know of anyone else who gained like six pounds on the paleo diet.
Yeah, I think it could be. I think our bodies have a tendency to compensate for a little excess fat by storing it as fat, so when our bodies are doing their natural fat-burning, we feel like we’re gaining weight, but really we’re just eating more food. In general, though, I think it’s a good idea to get your body used to eating a little bit more natural food.
According to Dr. Joseph Mercola, a popular paleo-diet expert, the reason why paleo dieters gain weight more quickly is because their bodies are not getting the proper nutrients. Mercola says that our bodies compensate for those low-nutrient foods by storing fat. He says that if you are following a paleo diet and eating the same amount of calories and protein as a paleo dieter, you are not getting the proper nutrients, you are simply gaining weight.
Mercola is also the author of the popular book Eat, Pray, Love: The Paleo Solution, which explains why the paleo diet works. He explains that our bodies have a higher level of protein intake than we do because our ancestors were hunter-gatherers and our bodies were designed to be more efficient at using food. If our ancestors survived to the present day, they would have had the same amount of protein intake as the average person today.
So, what’s the deal with the paleo diet and weight gain? It may seem counterintuitive, but the paleo diet and weight gain is really not that tough to understand. It’s actually pretty easy. Basically, paleo means paleolithic and therefore meaning the ancestors of the modern human species were probably cave dwellers, and therefore had a very low calorie intake.
