1/4 Swedish, 1/4 English,1/4 German, 1/4 Irish/Romanian.. I cannot lose weight unless I eat ZERO carbs. I gain weight if I eat over 20 carbs a day.
I m Age 56. (Pre Paleo/ Very low carb)... Chronic candida, Chronic sinus infections, sleep apnea, High blood pressure, Asthma, Hives, Migraine headaches from allergies to food color..I also HAD an Auto Immune Disease,,,....Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. Doctors at University of Chicago Hospital said there is NO CURE! Every night at 3am I awoke with horrific headaches. I was taking a cabinet full of meds.
3 Months ago I began to eat a Paleo diet. I went very low carb 2 months ago, but still Paleo. I am now taking NO meds. Blood pressure is 116/68. I am 20 pounds down. My RSD is GONE!!!! I have no symptoms.
I have no idea if I will be able to add some carbs back when I have gotten rid of the next 40 pounds. My last goal is to lose the CPAP I use for apnea...if possible.
