It’s going well. No adverse effects. Pretty easy to follow.
A prior post outlines the paleo diet version I’m following. It’s a little more hardcore or purist than some of the others you’ll see.
Only two transgressions. I absentmindedly drank a diet Coke and I purposefully ate four bacon-wrapped stuffed jalapeño peppers that held a little cheese. The peppers were too hot for anyone else at home and I couldn’t stand to see them go to waste.
I’ve been working a string of 12-hour shifts. My wife has cooked my meals; I eat one hot and fresh, and take the leftovers to the hospital for my mid-shift meal. So two meals a day.
I’m not doing this to lose weight, but I’m down to 169.5 lb, a loss of 1.5 lb in one week. I think the loss is real, not reflecting my state of hydration or contents of bladder and bowels.
This is fun.
PS: The paleo diet is also known as the Paleolithic, Stone Age, Old Stone Age, hunter-gatherer, or caveman diet.
