ok, so who doesn’t feel this way at least part of your day?! So let me remind all of us WHY we are torturing ourselves (because I forgot why last night!)…
Studies have shown that eating Paleo (for just 2 weeks!):
–improves blood pressure
–lowers plasma insulin
Paleo is a great way to get stronger, faster, leaner, and improved recovery time between workouts.
The PROS (if you need more):
–no processed foods
–meat/fish are wild-caught (not farm-raised or full of antibiotics)
–you eat way more fruits, veggies, nuts, and seeds
The CONS (besides you hate it):
— athletes – especially endurance athletes (like marathon runners) will need more carbs.
— it’s restrictive
— it’s hard to do when out to eat (although improving)
— you hate it
Listen, here’s the deal. It’s perfectly fine to make room for foods you love, but you know are not optimal for your health…but how often? Daily? I’m not so sure. What about a percentage? Like 80%/20% of the time. 80% of the time I eat Paleo, 20% I don’t worry about it. Probably ok if trying to maintain your weight, but trying to lose weight? How about 99%/1%?
What are your thoughts??? Please comment.
