    Man I am loving this diet. I feel great! I haven't been on any asthma or allergie medication for more than a month now and I am symptom free. The Bikram Yoga is a main contributer to that as well. I can't believe how much fruit and food I am eating and I'm still dropping weight! I'm loving life right now.

    I usually get allergies to the point I can't even wear contacts but didn't experience much other than occasional sneezing this year. Very strange.

    I've strayed from Shelby and doing my own thing now. He knows his shit and can get anyone to achieve their goals. However, my goal is not just strictly mirror or weight. I'm developing an entire new lifestyle to keep me lean, healthy and feeling good. I will continue to update him with my progress for the 12 weeks but I'm doing my own thing.

    Sounds like a bold move. But you know your body and how it responds to everything. From following and ready your posts here and at AF it sounds like a good move. Your not natty anymore are you?

    Good luck BDR

    I love the paleo diet also! Been on it for around 2 years, and what I like about it is not only do I feel great, but also look good too.

    If you havn't already you might look into taking vitamin D3. I greatly enjoy how D3 makes me feel. It brightens the day, to say the least. It would be considered paleo also. D3 is the vitamin/hormone made when warm sunshine strikes your skin. Our ancient ancestors were in the sunshine more than us, and so would have had greater D3 circulating in their system. It is thought that our paleo ancestors would have had a testing value around 60 to 70 ng/ml.

    Here is a video on how D3 prevents several types of cancers:

    Vitamin D: Treatment for metabolic syndrome?


    Metabolic syndrome is that increasingly common collection of low HDL cholesterol, high triglycerides, high blood sugar, and high pressure that now afflicts nearly 1 in 4 adults, rapidly gaining ground to 1 in 3. Beyond these surface factors, metabolic syndrome also creates small LDL particles, VLDL, intermediate-density lipoproteins (IDL), increased imperceptible inflammation measured as higher c-reactive protein, and greater blood clotting tendencies. Metabolic syndrome is usually, though not always, associated with a big tummy ("beer belly," though I call it "wheat belly").

    In short, metabolic syndrome creates a metabolic mess that leads to dramatic increases in heart disease, vascular disease and stroke, and cancer. The medical community has been paying increasingly greater attention to this condition because of its booming prevalence and because of the big bucks invested in "education" by the manufacturers of the diabetes and pre-diabetes drugs, particularly makers of Actos and Avandia.

    But here's a curious observation:

    Replacement of vitamin D to healthy levels (we aim for 50-60 ng/ml, or 125-150 nmol/l) yields:

    --Higher HDL
    --Lower triglycerides
    --Lower blood sugar
    --Reduced c-reactive protein
    --Reduced blood pressure
    --Reduced small LDL
    --Enhanced sensitivity to insulin

    (Whether blood clotting and effects on IDL should be added to this list is uncertain.)

    It's obvious: Vitamin D is proving to be a very important and powerful corrective influence on many of the facets of the metabolic syndrome. In fact, I would go as far as saying that, side by side, vitamin D yields nearly the same effect as prescription drugs Actos and Avandia--without the extravagant cost (nearly $200 per month), leg swelling, congestive heart failure and heightened heart attack risk (with Avandia), and average 8 lb weight gain. Of course, vitamin D also provides benefits beyond metabolic syndrome like facilitation of coronary plaque regression, increased bone density, reduced arthritis, and reduced risk of several cancers.

    You'd think that agencies like the American Diabetes Association (ADA) would be all over vitamin D like white on rice. Yet they remain curiously quiet about the entire issue. (That should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with the behavior and politics of this organization, the same outfit that has widely propagated the ADA diet, a program that accelerates diabetes and its complications. In my view, the ADA is an embarassment.)


    [​IMG]
    For a really great story and video on vitamin D that includes a terrific interview with vitamin D guru and Track Your Plaque friend, California psychiatrist Dr. John Cannell, go to What's the Real Story on Vitamin D?. While the video will yield little new to readers of The Heart Scan Blog or Track Your Plaque members, it just feels really good to see a well-made, high-class video production echoing many of the things we've been talking about these past two years.
