Vegetarian to Paleo | The Paleo Diet

Dr. Cordain,

After 30-40 years as a vegetarian/Natural Hygiene sympathizer, I have adopted the Paleo Diet. The diet is simple, sensible, and scientifically based – and I do well on it. Actually it was easy for me to adopt as, I had already deviated from Natural Hygiene by adding fish, dairy, whole grains, etc. to my diet. I now simply eat more fish, fruits, and veggies and have pretty much abandoned the dairy and whole grain. It’s an easy diet to follow – especially on an island where fresh fish are readily available for a buck a pound! One pleasant observation I have made while on the diet is that I have NOT lost weight. When I first became involved with vegetarianism I recall that my weight plummeted from a muscular 190+ to an unbelievably ripped 160. This weight loss was one factor that (fortunately) discouraged me from pursuing a strict vegetarian diet.
