I live in West County. Found this group through a Meetup search.
I've been following Paleo principles for about three years. Initially got into it to lose weight; stayed with it because it makes me feel fantastic!
Share resources for local food, especially humanely raised local meat.
The only issue I have personally had is that Paleo is a bit too restrictive on carbs. I really found I needed more carbs in my diet for thyroid health. I love the work of Chris Kresser - he presents a balanced viewpoint that I find helpful.
I need to incorporate more weight work into my exercise.
I got started with Paleo about three years ago. It has helped my health and well being tremendously. I also am passionate about local food and about treating animals humanely and avoid CAFO raised meats as much as possible.
