My Personal Paleo Diet Results
I thought I would share with everyone the day I had today. It’s days like these that really motivate me to stick to our lifestyle.
This morning started off at school with one of my friends complimenting me on my hair and how shiny it is. We’re beauticians. She asked if I was using some new amazing product. But I’m really not. I told her it’s just because I’m not eating crap.
Later in the day I was doing a haircut for a customer and she complimented me on my “beautiful skin.” She asked what face wash I used. The thing is, before the paleo diet my skin was broken out on almost every inch of my face. Not anymore. I did tell her what face wash I use — which is nothing new, it’s something I’ve used for years. I then told her about our lifestyle and how I owe my clear skin to eating right and not my face wash.
To give you all an example, here is just a quick picture I found of me in 2007.
When I was a teenager my doctor put me on a prescription of Benzaclin over many years which didn’t do anything to clear up my acne. I was off and on Benzaclin from 12 to 16 years old. The doctor wanted to put me on AccuTane but my mom wouldn’t let him because she thought it was too dangerous. So I lived with my acne.
Here’s a recent picture of my skin:
I’m not used to being complimented on my beautiful skin. And I must say it feels great!
It’s not all about skin, though. Going paleo has done wonders for my hair.
Last January I chopped my hair off above shoulder length, which was a big change for me. My parents hated when I cut my hair. Growing up it was always down to my rear. After I cut it off, my hair was so damaged that I couldn’t get it to grow again — as it would grow it would just break off.
Well since going on a paleo diet, my hair has been growing really fast. A girl who I hadn’t seen in two weeks asked me when I got extensions done. She didn’t believe it was my actual hair. But it is. I promise.
So, today was a very exciting day for me. I’ve never got compliments on my skin, so compliments like these make me realize how awesome paleo really is.Did you enjoy reading this? Subscribe to our RSS feed!
