A few weeks back I tried eating Paleo for a few days. And then I started to get light-headed and felt awful. So I went back to my regular eating. And felt better, but not good.
Since then I have been doing a lot of reading and thinking. I’ve felt for a long time that I needed to change my diet to help to alleviate my issues. I’ve tried many things; cutting out dairy and gluten, detox plans, etc, etc.
There are some that I was able to stick with for weeks or even months, then there are some that I only made it a few days.
My body doesn’t respond well to change. Some of these efforts to change my diet have resulted in my curled up in a ball, with head pain more horrible than I ever experience, and barfing my guts out.
And when that happens, I give up.
Now, it isn’t always that bad but it tends to really suck and I can’t usually get past it. Who has time to spend days going through awful detox?
I sure don’t but I need to so I can really figure out if it will help. I’m so tired of the insanity of doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.
So now I try again. From what I’ve read, Paleo seems like a good option for me and I need to give it a real shot. This is day 2 and my head is exploding but I, oddly, feel a sense of wellness inside. Maybe it’s because I want it to work or maybe it is real. I will only know if I keep at it.
So wish me luck. The cravings and hunger and detox pain is going to get worse before it, hopefully, gets better.
I want to make it through to the other side. This time, please, let me make to through.
