ACNE & SKIN
"A dry skin condition I had since high school cleared up."
"30 days later [after starting] and I had lost about 30lbs, I wasn't chronically oedematous, my skin had cleared up, I had more energy than ever and my mood had brightened considerably."
"I feel healthier, have much improved skin, less congestion, and feel like I am reducing my body's stress. I used to get cold sores regularly, and when I went to the dermatologist and asked why I get them she told me that my body was stressed. Well, I didn't know why that would be because I always thought I ate healthy. I haven't had an outbreak since I started this diet."
"My knees and hips, which always ached, but I ignored had stopped hurting. My skin cleared up. Amazing!"
"Clearer skin, reduction in exzema/dermatitis."
"My hair was dry, my skin was flaky and spotty, nails brittle, and I was pretty much always exhausted. I can't remember how I found Paleo, but I was doing some researching online and found other people who had been living like I had been and feeling the same way until they dropped the sugar, grains, processed everything, etc. So I tried it and it was amazing...my hair/skin/nails improved even more."
"My skin cleared up (used to get cystic acne)."
"Decrease in acne on face and back"

"Then I read Gary Taubes and eliminated all grains (including a daily large dose of wheat germ) and started consuming much more fat, esp. animal and dairy fat. Amazed myself by reducing to 115 pounds (what I weighed as a 15-year-old) in less than a month. After a year, I am still at that weight, and my BMI is about 19. I used to have terrible arthritis pain in my wrists, but the pain is now completely gone. (I credit giving up wheat germ for that.) One of the down-sides is that I realize exercise does not help keep my weight down."
"I am a middle aged woman who bought the low fat thing entirely. I was always hungry! I got interested in eating locally for political reasons, then a friend told me about paleo. Though I'd give it a try. It certainly cured the "always hungry" problem and I've been slowly losing fat, about a pants size in 6 months. I've also mainly kicked my antacid habit. I've NOT had any miraculous recession of arthritis or disappearance of sleep issues, yet I don't feel like giving up the way of eating."
"My first intro to the paleo diet was from nutrition presentation given at an ADHD counseling center that my older daughter goes to. Thought it was a bit crazy but made sense in a lot of ways so was willing to research further. My research led me to realize that this may be the perfect diet for my younger daughter who was suffering from chronic debilitating headaches that I strongly suspected related to food sensitivites. While both girls were at overnight camp, I tried the diet on myself. Almost immediately I had more energy, arthritis was gone and year round allergies gone. I was gone."

"But more than just the energy levels there was the alleviation in my lifelong IBS. And the fuzzy headed feeling that I would get often where it was an act of will to focus my eyes or speak without slurring, usually in mid afternoon but even at other times of the day."
"The thing that did change significantly is my digestion. I was probably borderline IBS, and it's all gone now. Same for my allergies, which disappeared the moment I stopped dairy (except butter)."
"Improved digestion and bowl movements and IBS symptoms gone."
"IBS symptoms were gone and was able to come off of 3 different prescription drugs for my IBS."
"I then read a lot of other Paleo books and liked what I read in The Primal Blueprint. Got his cookbook as well and follow it for the most part, still kind of Neanderthin as well. They're not diametrically opposed. I did it mainly for the IBS and to drop my blood sugar and was shocked when after a couple of weeks I'd dropped 10 pounds. And my blood sugar has dropped from 6.1 to 4.8 at last measure. My IBS hasn't been cured but it's lots better and hopefully it'll come around as well."
"IBS episodes much less frequent."
"IBS gone, eczema gone."
