When I tried (and failed) switching to paleo last April, and then my attempt with low carb, and most recently my third attempt at paleo, I searched high and low to find someone, anyone who was experiencing similar problems (thyroid downregulation, depression, digestion, etc). Almost everyone I encountered vehemently defended the lifestyle. No one would admit that maybe they had a little trouble adapting to it or, like me, couldn't last more than a couple weeks without experiencing a physical and mental meltdown. I knew there must be someone out there... maybe the were all hiding?
But diet has become a fair bit like radical religion. We faithfull follow the plan we want so desperately to believe in, and even if we experience problems along the way, once we make up our mind that it's the right way we are willing to die for it.
Maybe that's little dramatic, but there is truth to it. For many of us interested in nutrition and improving our health, Our Chosen Diet has become the golden calf.
Anyway, I generally find people who are nutrition oriented to be articulate and outspoken, and usually very well reasearched. Personally, I do a lot of research, understand the concepts, and know how to apply them, but lack in the communication, discussion, and debate part. Maybe there are other people out there like me, who have experienced problems transitioning to a paleo or low carb lifestyle but are afraid to speak out for fear of being squashed by the outspoken, articulate majority.
