My Paleo Manila Diet: Week 17

I’m super excited to write this post for 2 things. 1.) My blood results came back and after 4 months on my PALEO MANILA diet, my blood sugar level went down from 220 to 180! Yay! I know it’s still high, but in time -and if I stick to my no-carb/no-sugar diet (well, with a little cheats here & there), I may well be on the way to recovery & maybe the need for insulin won’t keep cropping up. 2.) Paleo Manila delivered super cute food for the whole Halloween week. Eating diet food has never been more fun! \m/

But first things first. My BEFORE & AFTER blood chemistry results. Can you see the difference in my blood sugar level? Admittedly, the cholesterol level is still high so I’m still on maintenance meds, but with a mostly all-meat diet to replace my carb intake & keep me full in the process, I really don’t know to bring it down. But overall, I’m still very happy with my blood results. Paleo Manila succeeded in bringing down my blood sugar levels, which is why I’m on it in the first place. For health benefits more than aesthetic purposes.

BEFORE: Blood Sugar 226.



AFTER: Blood Sugar 179.

I just have a confession to make. One that I’m very ashamed to admit, and one that I owe my Paleo Manila family a huge apology for. I’ve been too comfortable with losing weight that on my 4th month, I began “tasting” sinful food again. So there’ a temporary setback. I didn’t lose any weight this month. I know I have let all of you down. I have let myself down too. But most of all, I have let my Paleo Manila family down after they invested so much in me. I became too kampante that I became foolish. I let my guard down. I thought I would still continue to lose weight as long as I just tasted bits & pieces here & there. I’m only human, and I became weak in facing adversity & gave in to my carnal desire. Moral lesson of the story, when you do something, there is NO half way. Either you do it & commit 100% or don’t do it at all. Clean & healthy living does not have an expiration date. It’s a lifestyle -a forever kind of thing. And for that, I am truly sorry. :'(


I truly am sorry Isabelle, Gen & Trisha (not in photo) for letting my guard down, and in the process, letting YOU down. I promise to get right back on the track. With you still believing in me. I CAN DO IT. I did it once, I will do it again -cold turkey.

My promise: I will really stick to my Paleo Manila meals these coming weeks & I will do my best to stay on the path that will lead me to a better, fitter me. I won’t let you down again.
