    My experience with hair loss and how I fixed it.

    This sounds wonderful! I wear hair extensions all the time now. My hair is extremely fine and it just won't grow! So I too was hoping that the whole 30 and being paleo would help! The last time I went to hairdresser she did say that I had a lot of new growth which is good, but still I suppose I must give it more time to see a noticeable difference. You said yours stopped falling out after 18 months, so I do hope mine actually starts growing after 18 months. Thanks for sharing this because it's been on my mind, would love to have naturally lovely flowing locks!

    The crazy things people say

    "It's not the bread that's the problem, it's the stuff you put on the bread"!!! Friend to me when I told her I was paleo!
  3. I was in the same boat myself for years with my older child! It's very tough and it can make you feel isolated. I do yoga too :-) ashtanga yoga! Couldn't do it for years because of the ME/CFS but so thrilled I can now again. It's very tough though and the brain tries to tell me I don't need to do it some days!! Silly brain lol!! God job I don't be listening to it to often! :-)
  4. Are you excercising at all? I have found that whilst I might fight against it due to old habits etc, I always feel much better when I do. It lifts the spirits I think. Also, cashew nuts, just a handful have the same effect apparently on the brain as Prozac!! Think I saw that on Food Inc?? Or another on net flicks, can't remember which. Also, sometimes it's good to look at such programmes or documentaries etc. Well for me it was good! I felt proud and strong and that I believe enhances a certain confidence which in turn gives you a feel good factor. You have done so well to get to this stage. Be proud of what you have achieved, even though you cannot feel it, or tell the difference yet, this can only be of benefit to you. Make sure too that you are drinking loads of water to flush those toxins away. Perhaps also see if there are other ways of enjoying other adults company bar going out to a bar etc. Maybe there is a class or something that you could do?? You know something like a hobby or something to take yourself away from everyday responsibilities as a single mum?? There is no doubt this is one heck of a challenge to ourselves. You have chosen to do it and you haven't given up on that committment to yourself. That in itself says a lot about your strength of character. You haven't thrown the towel in just because you haven't seen the physical results! You are sticking with it with only 8 days left!!

    Help! Akward topic...diarrhea

    I am paleo for the past 10 weeks. Although I must mention that I am only on day 2 of the whole 30, but pretty much no difference with the exception now I am not allowing treats say like coconut cream and strawberries. Anyway, for 6 weeks out the first 10 my bowel movements were a disgrace! It is only now that everything is normal! I didn't stop eating anything at all I just waited until it passed. Although if it had gone on any longer than 8 weeks I would have had to address it I think. But my feeling is don't worry! Drink loads of water perhaps there are s backlog of toxins there or something?
