Question: is there a period of "detoxing" when you begin the Paleo lifestyle, including uncomfortable body aches and other symptoms? How long should it last, and will it eventually go away completely?
Hubby and I are on day 14 of our 30 day strict Paleo diet, looking forward to what was assured would be a dramatic change in how we look, feel and perform. Instead, my body is complaining about the smallest workout that wouldn't have even fazed me two months ago: hamstring injury that won't go away, aching body all over from just 2 hours of yard work, uncommon skin blemishes, and a general feeling of heaviness. We feel that we are following what we read about appropriate amounts of fat, protein, veggies and sleep, but maybe we're missing something?
