hey folks. i am getting off paleo and i need to know... i have been on strict paleo for about a month and half now. zero sugars... hardly any carbs... and TONS of fat. I feel wonderful but... having some complications. and i want to try something. it's a bit personal. i was just curious... do i have to slowly detox from paleo into a normal american diet? since my body is not used to sugar... should i slowly introduce it? i am still going to try my best to make healthy choices. i amnot familiar with health... is there a danger to stopping paleo and eating usual diet? blood sugar wise? insulin wise? i am 100% perfectly healthy. i just want to make sure i dont send my body into some kind of shock or something. i am a hypochondriac so i would appreciate the feedback. thanks very much everybody

When we get to paleo, we'll never be sick, we won't get any older, and we won't ever die

A better question is, "Should I slowly re-tox from paleo?"

i seem to recall anecdotes of some people experiencing anxiety when doing LC/ZC/Ketogenic type paleo...possibly related to thyroid health(?).

may be just adding some carbs will sort things out for you.

& may be get you thyroid checked out (TSH test at least) if you have not already done so.

lol its just this whole thing... i love paleo and i will probably get back on it. i am just trying to see what my body does. ever since starting paleo i have developed severe anxiety. i am perfectly healthy otherwise its just miserable. tons of panic attacks. i cannot even begin to explain how hard its been. the thing is though i am not blaming paleo... i am just going to experiment ans see what happens if it was my diet change. if not i will swing back on paleo. life is stressful so i am almost positive its not paleo... just anxiety from life. otherwise i feel good on paleo.

Increased anxiety on a VLC diet? It's not uncommon.

Folks with existing adrenal/thyroid problems often fare poorly on VLC/ketogenic diets. I experienced this first hand, and it wasn't pleasant!

What you'll want to do is start eating starches and maybe some fruit. A potato with every meal is a good way to begin.

Keep eating paleo (whole foods), but aim for 30% or more carbs in your diet. I'm almost certain you'll recover.

Either way, let us know how you do, and good luck!

You can't quit paleo, or you die.

Start out with the best carbs. Things like buttered sweet potatoes, pumpkin and winter squash, unsweetened yogurt (and other fermented foods) and berries. The fermented foods should help start repopulating your gut with carb-digesting enzymes.

If you start out easy you won't end up back at the SAD. You'll probably gain 5-10 lbs as you rebalance to higher glycogen levels.

"do i have to slowly detox from paleo"

Since Paleo obviously tries to avoid toxins, detoxing would be impossible. Probably won't have any near term issues of moving back to a bad diet, long term seems kind of an odd choice if you are ok with Paleo. You can tell us your personal issues since nobody knows who you are, just say you have a friend who is from another planet and has ...............
