10 official days

Okay, I didn’t swallow the cool aid, well, mostly because cool aid isn’t paleo. 🙂  I think the thing I’ve learned the most so far is that I was eating a lot of crap.  I’ve been reading The Paleo Coach for the last week or so, and while I’m still skeptical about some of it, most of it is really making a lot of sense.

I started eating better and closer to what I needed about 2.5 weeks ago, but it’s been 10 days since I started eating paleo only, and I have come to certain conclusions:

  • I feel better.
  • My shirts fit better.
  • My pants fit better.
  • Things that I shouldn’t eat are beginning to effect me negatively.
    • bread makes me really tired
    • sugar is giving me an headache
    • cookies just aren’t worth it anymore
  • My body is still craving milk, so I’m not totally on the bandwagon on that part

I’ve been munching on apples, carrots, and macadamia nuts because I’m coming to realize that I am a snacker.  Going to get a head of broccoli and cut it up in a bowl and munch on that when I want to snack.

I’m curious to see what happens as I walk this path, so in order to have a baseline, I’ve gone to the doctor and had a battery of blood work done so I have something to compare to.  I have to say, I’m eager to see how well I can progress, but more importantly, see how well I can keep it up.
