Well, it’s been nearly 3 weeks now since I started this paleo experiment. I have to say, I REALLY like this way of thinking!
I’ve stopped thinking about being on a ‘diet’ and instead am thinking about good, fresh, real food. And it tastes yum!
I’m not doing 100% paleo, as I know if I put foods on the ‘I can’t eat, EVER’ list I will just crave them. So I am mostly paleo, but if I am out for dinner, or I really want a little something not-so-good, then I will. The key words being A LITTLE. I have eliminated grains (99% of the time) and rarely eat white potato any more. I still have dairy, but only minimal amounts. Processed sugar is out 🙂
This approach seems to be working for me. I’m not finding it too restrictive, and can still eat familiar meals (with some tweaking). It’s also helping me branch out and try new recipes and foods I wouldn’t think of eating before.
As far as weight loss, I didn’t take a reading when I started, but have lost 2.6kg in the last 10 days. I feel good, really good 🙂
I think I’m onto a winner here folks
