NatashCher Posted January 11, 2014 Share Posted January 11, 2014 Hi everybody, my name is Natasha and I have started my paleo path on Monday, like many of you.This is me now: I think my phone makes me slightly slimmer. I am about 240 lbs. My dream weight is 130 lbs (I have lots of muscles). However any achievement will be happily welcomed, because my biggest goal is to become healthier. I have been struggling with a few conditions that really stay in the way of my happiness and active lifestyle that I so much want to live. My friend tried paleo and was amazed with results, so was I, so I am giving it a shot.It has not been particularly easy, but I know it will be worth it. I don't have many cravings (I didn't think I'd have any at all, but I did a bit - for something baked, for milk and for wine). So far I am stunned with changes I have been experiencing. Here is the list of the changes I am undergoing within just 5 days:- I wake up with no stiffness in my body (before it was a torture to stand up)- I feel that I am becoming slimmer- I am not as fatigued by the end of the day, and in general, I have more energy- I don't have much appetite between meals- Food smells more intense, including berries and fruits that I didn't feel had much sweetness, now taste very sweet- Smells became more vivid and diverse! It feels like my smell had been asleep.- I have much more clarity in my thoughts and feel much happier - not just because of the notion that I am doing something good for myself and already see results, but I believe also from the physiological point of view, it feels like what I am doing is straightening up the serotonin metabolism. And of course, I am very happy that I found out about this way of being (rather than a diet), and I feel very empowered by it and what I am doing and what I am experienceing. I also took some "before" photos in less clothes, which I will keep for now till I can show the "after" photos which will look significantly better. I have one question though. Why do I sometimes feel sweet taste on my tongue, even when I didn't eat anything sweet? Sometimes I feel it in between meals. Thank you for reading this far. I wish you all strength and luck on your way to the healthier you! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
