I’m 36 years old, and 5 ft 8.5 in tall. I started the Paleo Diet about four months ago. Since then I’ve lost almost 25 pounds, bringing me down to my ideal weight of 150. My blood pressure went from 115/70 to 92/56. I decided to try the Paleo Diet because I read (on About.com) that it may help alleviate depression and anxiety. To my delight, it worked – my depression and anxiety have disappeared. My energy levels are much higher than before. I’m no longer tired throughout the day. My mind is clearer – I can focus much more easily, and my short-term memory has improved greatly. My skin is much smoother and less dry. Another improvement that I’ve found, which is kind of strange to me because I never expected it, is that my shinbones are no longer really sensitive. It used to be that if I barely bumped my shinbones against something, the pain was quite bad. Now they’re hardly sensitive at all.
