Laura Jeanne Penrod Posted December 2, 2014 Share Posted December 2, 2014 Good Afternoon, I had completed a Whole 30 a year and a half ago and became very frustrated while following a Paleo lifestyle. I had adopted the practices in the book, maybe having a few slip-ups here and there. I was doing Crossfit and eating in a Paleo fashion. I continued to increase in weight and finally gave up on Paleo. After I had thrown in the towel, I went for genetic testing. I was told that my blood panel showed great results. No high blood pressure, great cholesterol levels, so on and so on, BUT, and here's the big BUT my doctor stated based on my genotype of APOE 3/4 I was predisposed for Alzheimers and that I also was unable to process fats like other people. He stated I needed to follow a low-fat diet and needed to increase my cardio. Everything I've followed for the past year has been the opposite. I still have not adopted a low-fat lifestyle or increase cardio, but am at my wits end. I also suffer from excema and Endometriosis. But am more concerened with being told to eat low-fat since the paleo approach to eating is anything but low-fat. Any insight would be greatly appreciated as I'm thinking of venturing on another Whole 30. Thanks again, Laura Jeanne Penrod Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
