This is my 3rd week on the paleo/primal life style. I love it. Its easy, it's effective (I've lost 22 pounds) and it's tasty. So much makes sense now. I never understood why I always felt like crap after I ate of bowl of pasta (I love(d) pasta..!!) There were things I just didn't digest well, things I craved and I'm talking serious binge worthy cravings. It sort of reminds me of alcoholism, it's as though I kept tempting myself by allowing sugar, flower and wheat in my diet. These foods triggered insane cravings in me.
Craving talk aside, my body is shrinking, I fit in a pair of jeans that I couldn't fit into 3 months ago (before paleo). Right before I started I still had to wear a long winter coat and last week it got chilly outside so I put it on while I sat on the porch with hubby and the coat was baggy in the tummy area. This is progress and it'll only get better. How can I knock something that is making me lose weight, feel better, is good for my health and so much more...
I believe I'm 90% paleo because I'm still eating some dairy in tiny quantities; butter (on mashed cauliflower or other vegetables), cheese (in salads) and dressing (on salads) and diet soda. I plan on creating my own paleo friendly dressing this evening, tons of recipes online and I might even tackle paleo mayonnaise (easier than you think).
This is a tasty, healthy and effective way to eat in my humble opinion.
Of course please check with your doctor before starting any new diet.
