Nigel's Experience with
Paleo Diet for Weight Loss

6 years ago

5' 11" and 240lbs on March 7th. 183lbs on December 7th. After losing about 20lbs found that blood pressure was reduced. Contacted doctor and asked which of the two medications I was on, I should stop taking. After losing another 20 or so pounds, blood pressure was reduced again. Informed doctor I was quitting the other blood pressure medication. I now take my BP every now and again, finding it is always in the normal range.

I follow a "Paleo Lite" diet in that I will eat a few potatoes, white rice occasionally and peas & beans. I will also eat birthday cake, christmas cake and christmas pudding.

I count calories to make sure I stay on track. But, having lost 57lbs, I am finding that the weight loss has slowed up. Hopefully this is because I do some strength training and am putting on muscle.
