My success story
I have struggled with knee problems for the past 12 years, after a car accident that dislocated my knee cap. I have had 9 surgeries in that time trying to repair the damage. In March, I started Crossfit, with some hesitation that my knee might be a problem. I pushed myself, I struggled, but I kept going. Then I took a closer look at the Paleo Diet, and what that might mean for me and my lifestyle. I did not start the Paleo diet to help my knee, I started it to lose weight. After first 6 weeks eating Paleo, my knee had never felt better, it was stronger, not swollen and I was doing things I hadn’t been able to do, Squats almost to full depth, Box Jumps, and Lunges. It wasn’t until I had a bad day of eating and drinking, that I truly felt the results of the Paleo diet and being Gluten free. I woke up, after my “free” eating day, my knee was swollen, clicking and killing me! It took about 3 weeks for my knee to get back to where it was during that first 6 weeks. I am happy to say that with the help of Crossfit and Paleo, my knee is the strongest it has been in 12 years. My knee will never be perfect and I will never be pain free, but I now have the knowledge and skill to keep it feeling its best. Thanks Greg and Orion and Crossfit Golden!!
