I live in Fenton, and searched for Primal Living on Meetup.com
I have had severe reactive hypoglycemia and moderate gluten intolerance for all of my life, leading to rheumatoid arthritis, vision problems, headaches, irritability, etc. Previous diets -- raw food vegan, low carb (i.e., Atkins but with grain products), etc. -- ultimately failed for various reasons. As a geologist, I am familiar with our evolutionary history. I find the science behind the Paleo diet (particularly problems with grains and excess sugar) to be compelling.
Show new ways of cooking, share stories about people's paths to the Paleo/Primal lifestyle, meet different families, discuss local sources of food, gardening tips, etc.
Currently still trying to become "fat adapted" -- still dealing with weakness following large meals low in carbs
Dive in and learn how to cook the foods that will keep me healthy.
I have just recently started a Paleo diet, having been plagued with severe reactive hypoglycemia and gluten intolerance for most of my life. As a geologist, "paleo" has a nice ring to it and I love the way it makes me feel!
