I been on the Paleo diet on and off for a couple months before this but never got clear. So I wanted to really test this out very strict to see what will happen.
So I been on a strict (no cheating) autoimmune version of the Paleo diet for the last 13 weeks. But I am not getting the results that I have hoped for by this time.
So I eliminated tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, white potatoes, eggs, dairy, nuts/seeds and shellfish in addition to the Paleo diet.
This is what I eat: Meats, chicken, fish (not shellfish though), vegetables (except for the night shade family), coconut oil, avocado, olive oil, sea salt, sea weed (sometimes), organ meats (chicken liver, chicken gizzards, chicken hearts, cow tongue, beef liver), sweet potatos, squash.. My goal was to wait untill I was completely clear and start re-introducing some of these foods but I never got completely clear for longer than 2 weeks.
My psoriasis and acne went away after 8 weeks. Unfortunately the Psoriasis came back about 50% after 2 weeks (after the 8 weeks). Its only in two small spots anyway, so no big deal for now. And also my acne came back.
I have tackled my sleep issues and its slowly improving.
I also meditate 4 to 5 days per week to reduce stress.
Made sure to increase my vitamin D intake.
I fast anywhere from 14 to 18 hours per day. Its actually not that hard now that I am a fat burner:)
I am familiar with the GAPS diet but do not really want to go that strict to be honest.
Eventually I do want to see a functional doctor to figure out what else is going on. But at this time I can't afford it.
I was wondering if any adult on the Paleo diet here has any other suggestions for me on what I else I can try? Or I should just be patient coz I am still healing?
Obviously I am not gonna just go back to eating crappy food. Because I have already experienced many benefits: weight loss, more energry, no more temporary spring psoriasis outbreak
Thanks in advance:)
