Paleo Diary: Staying Committed

My Tips on Sticking to the Plan and Loving It

It was two months ago when I dived in with full force into the Paleo, well Paleo(-ish), world. By full force I mean that I gave up cow milk in my coffee, the one non-paleo thing I held on to until the very end of my Paleo warm up. Not to say that it's been easy or that there hasn't been any slips. But there has been rewards on feeling more alert, more energized and capable every time I do stay committed.

So here's a quick run down of 6 easy things that helped me stay on track and in love with the Paleo diet.

Are Grains and Legumes bad for you?

Why say no to what we've known to be healthy foods (whole grains, beans and even soy)? 

Two weeks ago I announced the beginning of my Paleo, rather Paleo-ish, experiment. And I say ish because before I dive in with full force, I needed some answers. Are grains and legumes really bad for you? Here's the new word on these old food staples.

How often can you say (speak the truth)

Wow, there is nothing that I'm not already doing for my body!

Having said that, last week I realized that I've been taking a nice stroll around the same spot instead. 

So I made a pledge to challenge my body, my culinary ability and my mental stamina. And here's is how it went, the recipes that made it possible and how I made through it.

I Am Going Paleo(-ish!) Do You Dare?

I saw this documentary, The Perfect Human Diet by broadcast journalist C.J. Hunt, about two weeks ago, spilling some very harsh opinions on wheat, especially whole wheat and legumes (a Vegetarian's best friends). And whether the claims in the film are true or not, it was enough to get me curious.

So yes, I am going Paleo(-ish)! 

Now, here is why I am doing it...

Snacking Your Way Into a Healthy Body

I once read a quote from a fitness trainer posted by a friend on my Facebook timeline a year or two ago, and it said something along the lines of if you are hungry before lunchtime, your breakfast sucked. Being a proponent of eating every couple of hours for as long as I could remember, at first I rejected the idea. But then it got me thinking, what if he is right?
