Title: Day Six Doing the Caveman
Post by: OilDude on June 20, 2009, 07:49:14 PM
Wow where to start.Heard about the Caveman diet from an Edmonton Eskimo's offensive lineman who recently retired,started doing the research and liked what I was seeing and discovering about HUMANS and how we evolved.
Eight years ago I was diagnosed with a hyper thyroid and had it radiated and have been on synthroid daily ever since,and three years ago was hit with type 2 diabetes,no medication as I am border line and my blood sugar is always mid range.The thyroid issue gave me an extra 60 lbs and has been a struggle to get the weight off and keep it off.
I started the caveman diet on Monday and today is Saturday and I am es tactic as I have lost 6lbs in six days and have more energy than I have had in years.
Monday was extremely rough as I found myself starving all day and when I ate supper I had to lay down as I felt like crap and wanted to pass out,but I stuck with it.
From Tuesday on I have felt stronger and have had lots more energy at the end of the day than I have had for it seems like years and the starvation was gone.It must be true about the rush of vitamans and the detox.

I look forward to talking to you all and getting your support in my quest to get back to 200 lbs and living my life again.

Have been doing the 3 stages with a twist I guess.Nuts and fruit during the day and for my main meal I have been having a extra large salad with either chicken or salmon.Mixed in a good steak half way through the week which was very tasty and lots of water,so far so good.
