Well, it is a good thing there is some anonimity on the internet.
For me, it is official; the paleo style diet is over. It may work to bring down weight for awhile and my sugars did pretty good for a week. However, the last two days they have been higher than the first week and I was eating less and less carbohydrates and climbing stairs at work like a mountain goat. They would not go down.
I have been feeling worse and slept very poorly last night as my legs kept trying to cramp up on me. I finally broke down this afternoon and ate a yam, an apple, a banana and a bag of corn chips and the fuzziness went away. I will see what my sugar has done here in a little while and report what it is.
As far as this modern man is concerned, paleo is not sustainable and should be avoided. I will bow to the chuckles and catcalls from the bench and fade away as did the cave men of the past to supplanted by modern men who manage to eat a modern diet and stay slim except here in the richest, fattest nation on the earth where eating too much of the wrong stuff is a multifaceted fine art.
Thus ends the saga of obsidian. Never to be seen or heard from again.
