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.
