Paelo Diet

I'm on the third day of a Paelo diet.

 Two years ago, I decided we needed to be strict Vegetarians to help with my hubby's cholesterol.
We have enjoyed the lifestyle but my fibromyalgia discomfort has increased. My daughter suggested trying the elimination Paelo diet to see if it would help with my symptoms. After much reading, I decided to give it a try and chose the first day of Lent as a starting point.  I figured it would be a difficult transition and, if I was to give up many of the things I crave, Lent would be a great time to put the plan into action.

Here is the plan:
NO Processed food
No Dairy
No grains
No alcohol  (Yikes,  I might need a glass of wine!!)

Yes to 
and Fruit
with minimal good fats

I read the first week is the hardest and baby is that right!
Three days into it and my stomach is churning!
I can have my coffee but it has to be black, no cream or sugar.
I've watched my coworkers eat sweets, while I sat drooling!
I've eaten more green beans than I have in the last year.
I've had a hard time purchasing the meat because I see the slaughter houses in my head.

I will keep you posted as the weeks go by.
Wish me luck to a new....pain free.. body!!


  1. Best of luck and keep us posted.

  2. How's it going? I feel like I need to try something different, but I think I'd miss cheese too much :(
