“If you adhere to a Paleolithic set of guidelines, you will optimize your health, minimize your risk of chronic disease, and lose weight.”
I came across this article writing in “Medium” — a newer online writing platform started by two former Twitter execs.
The author, a food editor, tries out paleo for two weeks. In her post, she goes through some of the ups and downs that I’m sure many of you have experienced. Things like the dreadfully complicated process of eating at a restaurant, to eggs seven days a week, to finding out all the beloved cooking ingredients you once relied upon are no longer available.
“But eating out was a whole ’nother story. Offending ingredients popped up everywhere—a dash of soy in this, a nob of butter in that, and bread, oy, bread; I found it easiest to nix restaurants altogether.”
Personally, I go in and out of my paleo diet, more strict at times than others. But one thing I focus on is constantly improving it. A lot of folks get frustrated by failure, and once start cheating even a little bit, give up altogether. In my opinion, diets are meant to help you improve daily, not fix a lifestyle of poor choices overnight.
Anyways, I thought it was a fun fifteen minute read that I wanted to share.
