Being Sick…

26 Aug

Husband is sure that people on Paleo don’t get sick…or at least get sick far less than people not on Paleo. I agree with this whole heartedly. I, of course, need to be an exception to this rule.

Since starting to eat Paleo in December, husband has not been sick. Since joining us on this journey in January, in-laws have not been sick. Since beginning this lifestyle change in December, I have been sick twice. Granted this is far fewer times than ever before and I recover much more quickly, I’m still sad I’m not part of the cool kids club of “I don’t get sick anymore.”

In all fairness, Paleo cannot work complete miracles. In the past two weeks I went from getting up at 8 to getting up at 4, I slept MAYBE 6 hours a night as opposed to 8+ during the summer, I took two plane trips, stayed at a hotel, and increased my workload significantly. It wouldn’t be so bad except that crazy So Cal weather has been in the 100s all week long…

    Ya, you’ve been in contact with WAY more nasty germs (planes, hotels, school!)
