If you told me that in 30 days after a Paleo diet i would be feeling 20 years younger, energised, lighter and happy.... i probably would of thought you were slightly insane~
But here we are.... we took up the challenge and cut out all Sugar, Dairy, grains and legumes!
Gone... nothing.. and how do we feel? FN fantastic!
What have i learnt?
1. Cutting out sugar really wasnt that hard.... (Yep i said it!)
2. There are thousand of other food choices out there. (within Paleo)
3. It really is about how much you eat vs output in movement
4. I was a lazy eater. Unadventurous and boring.
5. I will continue to eat Paleo!
Paleo isnt a diet it is really a way of life. I have done alot of research and the way my body is feeling tells me that i am now on the right path.
I used to go to bed exhausted and then sleep all night and wake up exhausted and i have concluded that it has EVERYTHING to do with what i was shoving in my mouth. Looking back at my food choices i have realised everything we were eating was in some degree processed or laced with sugar.
I dont feel a slave to my food either. How many times have i thought about food in a day, what was i going to eat, how many calories it was going to be and how guilty was i going to be after i ate whatever.
Now..... i have total FREEDOM...I know what i can and cant eat and the simplicity sets your FREE.
I am not saying that if i feel like something sweet i wont have it. But i have noticed i no longer have those sugar cravings... I used to always want something sweet after dinner....ALWAYS but now Nothing!
I am sure now that those crazy people (sorry hope i dont offend anyone) who say that they put addictive in the food that make you crave it have a point.... I used to crave so many things and now i have no desire... no desire at all to eat anything sweet.
30 days i have lost 5.5kg which is fantastic. Thats with 4-6 days exercising.
I challenge you to give it a go. Whats 30 days of your life?
