I’m fairly new as well. I was doing the paleo diet for awhile to help my stomach problems. It helped for a little while, but then I was having pain again. I think it helped to get rid of carbs, but I was eating lots of fruit. I looked at this site and thought it made really good sense to try it. So far, even though it hasn’t been very long, it seems to be helping. I’ve cheated a few times, but I’m getting better at being stricter.
Take care and good luck!
