i said a while ago that i was starting the paleo diet to try and regulate my hormones and get my pcos symptoms under control, but i havent really been putting in an effort; the main reason i have not seen results in the mirror or on the scale. However, yesterday really sparked something in me, and i think im finally getting the hang of this whole eat like a caveman thing, and i think im going to be able to manage.
i picked up a couple new books at the library, one about the paleo diet so i can learn more about it, one about insulin resistance, and one about the glycemic index. im hoping these give me a better insight on how to fix all of my problems [and i will be sharing what i learn along the way].
as of right now, im planning on going full pale, no slip ups, just pure paleolithic eating for a month to really spark something in my body. As yesterday was the day that really worked for me, im going to do my month of pale from june 3rd to july 3rd..which also happens to be my birthday, and i would really like to see some results by then.
after that, i will be mostly paleo, but when im not, im going to eat gluten free foods only to keep my glycemic index in check. i was at whole foods today, a great food store that i love, and i found a whole isle of gluten free, organic food that i cannot wait to try.
going a month without mistakes and amping up my exercise regimen is going to be tough, especially when people around me eat whatever they want, but i know i can do it and i know that i need to do it.
I love your determination approaching this challenge! I am rooting for you to meet your goals!
Keep pushing on! I’ve struggled w/ PCOS for years, but now in my early 30s I’m not on any medications and manage all symptoms w/ diet, exercise and a few great supplements. I’ve been able to maintain a size 2-4 for years. It just takes work, and not being too hard on yourself! Good luck.
Thanks!! That really gives me some hope!
