Health & Paleo Update: New Year

January 7, 2013

I was just in a meeting and we got off track, this happens quite a lot around here but today it got me thinking a bit more about my health. We were discussing the Paleo diet and some of the dogma around it, “blah blah cavemen ate this way, blah blah blah” and you know really none of that junk matters to me. I could care less about the dogma around anything really, I just care if it works and this way of eating is working for me. A lot of my previous health issues were related, it seems, almost 100% to diet. I can no longer look back at my previous attitude of “this won’t make too much of a difference, I’ll just  look better and feel better about my blood-work numbers but not actually feel better” and be smug about it.  That way of thinking is dead and gone for me. It may sound obvious and it may sound cliched but you are what you eat and I do actually feel better, not just a little here and there but really a lot better.

Completely changing my eating habits and diet have revealed issues I didn’t even know I really had. Things that I just figured were happening because I was getting older or because I was sick in other ways, my brain could not relate them to eating but, turns out, they were. In fact the only one of my general problems that I never thought was related to eating that hasn’t been fixed by this change is my terrible sleep habits but I’m now convinced that I can change those too without much ill effect. We shall see.

Anyway this was just a general, random update as those thoughts came to me during a meeting and now back to work.
