My name is Sharon and I’m from Palmetto, Florida.
I joined the Paleo Secret 30-Day Challenge because my husband has been sick for years and we only recently found out that he was intolerant to gluten. I was checking the web for assistance in learning about gluten-free eating and came upon the Paleo Secret. We decided to take the 30-Day Challenge.
Your daily tips and especially your recipes have been very helpful. I was not overweight at the start of this program but I still lost a total of 10 pounds and am now at the lowest weight I have been in 25 years. I used to wear a size 10/12 and now I wear an 8, sometimes even a 6!
Being on a gluten-free, almost 100% organic, Paleo Diet has restored my husband’s health. He is now able to eat again and often takes second helpings. Prior to this – and before we understood that he was gluten intolerant – he would take one or two bites of his meal, excuse himself, and go to bed.
He would often say that his dinner looked great and smelled and tasted wonderful, but his stomach screamed “don’t put one more thing down here or I will be sick!” You wouldn’t believe how many doctors we have seen over the last 10 years to try and get to the root of his problem. Never once did they suggest we go on an elimination diet.
- We will continue for the rest of our lives to follow the Paleo diet.
- We have finally found a functional medicine practitioner in Sarosata, Florida who will help us in our battle to get my husband off of the toxic pharmaceuticals that the physicians fed him – in lieu of actually understanding and solving the problem.
There is clearly a light at the end of the tunnel, and I feel more hopeful than I have in years.
Thank you, Chad and Brenda, for your part in teaching us how to restore our health. I intend to keep following you guys, and only hope to continue to get healthier and feel better.
