Oct 16, 2018 · Polycythemia Vera and Nutritional Ketosis in Blood Cancers & Disorders

Starting this diet has made me aware of what all is put in our food. And what we are told is healthy. It's no wonder any other diet I tried failed. They put sugar on french fries in yogurt and tell you it's good for you. Reading lables has opened my eyes. I am eating things I've been told all my life would make me fat or is unhealthy. I pretty sure I have been lied to all my life. I miss bread but think that was one of the biggest evils along with added sugar. And part of the rules to this diet is if you can not pronounce it you can't eat it. No gmo's either. Hunt or gather except been which includes peanuts miss my peanut butter. But all the benefits it is hard for me to want to change my new life style.

My doc is on board by the way I forgot to mention that since I have started down this road my Doctor had been able to take me off my blood pressure meds! He likes the drop in weight and blood pressure. He is still after me about my smoking. I smoke a pack in two or three days. It's an improvement but I need to drop them all together. And no longer need to use my sleep apnea machine. I forgot about that pain I no longer need. I am the poster child for the Paleo diet. These changes happened slowly so I forget sometimes how much my life has changed.

I was diagnosed about a year and a half ago with PV. Have had phlebotomy performed every two weeks. I had started on the Paleo diet and have gone into a state of ketosis resulting in a loss of 80 lbs and general inprovments in over all health. Recently my red blood cell count has been low enough to for go the treatment!!! I noticed my numbers are better after I consume a whole pineapple the day before. Only twice but not getting stuck is a great day. I don't know if there is a correlation between the eating of pineapple and my numbers but it sure has me thinking. I will probably be eating pineapple in a fortnight. Was wondering if any body else has experienced any thing like this my numbers usually run in the 60s but my doc has my drained if I am over 55. Today I was at 41 the lowest it has been in a since I started treatment. The Paleo diet is hard to give up so much but I eat all I want. And I eat alot and the weight keeps dropping.
