A friend is seeing a gastro who recommended this for her, and I read a bit about it, then remembered seeing it mentioned here a time or two.

How many of you follow paleo (even if a modified version), why'd you do that, and how do you like it?

I do not follow a Paleo diet because I am very restricted with fruit and when I was healing, I was also restricted on vegetables. I still eat a high protein diet, but with rice and some corn.

I follow strict paleo diet except for a square of dark chocolate most days. My only fruit is blueberries and I have been increasing my vegetable intake, mostly well cooked greens. I don't eat any grains and I can't eat chicken or beef. Right now the proteins I eat are pork, venison, turkey, cod and sardines (fresh frozen not canned). I also can eat nuts. I drink coffee in the morning so I guess that's not paleo either.

Do you like the results of following it? (Not only for colitis but in general.)

It really works for me and it fits in with my Enterolab results.

While still taking budesinide, I started on the paleo diet. Very quickly my weight started to drop. There were not enough foods I could eat with sufficient caloric value to maintain my weight.
Like many others I had to add in rice, sweet potatoes and a few other items, i.e. gluten free chocolate chip cookies. Laughing I also have one cup of coffee a day. Since weaning off budesinide about 2 months ago, I've had some good days and some bad days. My diet is even more restricted, more paleo, and I'm losing weight again. I make almost everything I eat from scratch, no processed food. No gluten, no soy, no dairy, no eggs. Modified paleo seems to be my best alternative.

Good Morning, Leah. I think coffee is okay. It doesn't seem to make a difference whether I have it or not. Looking at my food diary there is almost no correlation between a WD event and something new I have eaten. I have to assume that the misery of my son's imploding marriage and all of the drama is causing stress. I thought I was handling the stress well but I guess my digestive system thought otherwise. It is going to take me a while to figure out how to eat without the budesinide. I am being sooooo careful, hoping things will settle down over time. I found a paleo recipe for pancakes and will try those just for some added calories and a change from the same old, same old breakfast.

Sheila, I'm so sorry you're dealing with such stress. Nothing can break a mother's heart like seeing their child struggle. :(

I started the autoimmune paleo elimination diet with ferments (water kefir) last October and I got amazing results. This year, I've slowly started reintroducing nuts (except walnuts), rice, rare quinoa, rare potato starch, rare egg baked into something, and non-spicy nightshade spices. I have confirmed a pretty severe corn sensitivity, so I'm done with grains except for rice and quinoa (which I keep because I was losing too much weight with sweet potatoes and squashes as my only starches). I hope to get to regular paleo soon (with eggs and nightshades).

Hi, Polly and all. I am new to all of this and still don't seem to have things reliably under control. But, even before this happened in the Fall of 13, I read a book that got great reviews in Scientific American and a few others called "The Story of the Human Body" by Lieberman, a professor of evolutionary medicine at Harvard. He never mentioned the Paleo diet that I recall but the whole book was about the numerous modern diseases that studies are showing are caused by our diet (and sedentary ways) and the radical change from what we ate before neolithic times. It was very convincing and I got more interested in the paleo diet at that time.
I am mostly eating that way but I am more concerned at this point with stabilizing my digestion. Once that happens, I do plan to go almost 100% paleo, watching my labs etc---it is hard. We have heard so much about low fat, minimal meat, lots of grains and F&V--I think 'can all these health experts be wrong?'. But after recent medical experiences, I have no trouble believing that the answer could be 'yes'. Suzanne

Funny you should mention Lieberman. I have just started reading a book entitled "The Paleo Manifesto" by John Durant. I am only on chapter 3 in which he discusses his visit with Lieberman in his lab at Harvard. I don't find eating paleo hard at all. For whatever reason I didn't have any trouble giving up the low fat high fiber/grains lifestyle nor did I have any trouble accepting that all these "experts" could be wrong. Maybe that's because I just feel better eating this way. Good luck with your journey to a healthier way of living.

I'm guessing that she was using the term "rare" in sort of a doctorspeak setting, to imply " widely scattered" or "very infrequently" (but I could be wrong, because for all I know, she could be referring to eggs from the spotted owl, or whooping crane Laughing).
