I feel like all week I’ve highly defended Paleo from nay-sayers claiming Paleo’s too hard to follow. I have shown how there are easy and healthy substitutes for our favorite non-Paleo foods. I’ve shown how versatile the diet can actually be.
This week I’m testing out my paleo menu plan for Conservation Fitness Head Start (still not sure if I’ll keep the name or not). When most people think of Paleo, they think of simply eating like a caveman. Eating natural foods, unprocessed, whole foods. They think of eliminating grains, and sugar, and dairy. It’s all…
One of the biggest complaints about Paleo I’ve heard is it’s too difficult shopping for such a restrictive diet. I know, that’s actually two complaints wrapped into one.
Ask a health coach their number one recommendation for eating healthier, and they would say eliminate processed foods. Press further and they would say eat foods available in their natural form. Cutting out foods made in a factory and not by our own hands is healthier for us, and it’s better for the environment.
A few days ago, I was listening to yet another book telling me how THEIR diet was the best program to follow. I listened for a while, at least 30 minutes, but started zoning out, because my mind wandered to my own principles I’ve started following for optimal health and fitness.
I find books on nutrition and diets to be quite fascinating. Not so much in “wow, this is insanely interesting information I am obtaining” but more in the way of “wow, that is vastly different from what this other guy said in HIS book”.
