Wahooo! I have followed a clean (to my knowledge) paleo lifestyle for 20 weeks now! In that 20 weeks I have ate amazing food, lost 13 lbs, dropped 2+ dress sizes and gained healthier skin, stacks more energy and a true appreciation for health and nutrition. The main benefit would be the knowledge I have now of how my body works, how it is designed to work and what I need to do to make it work as an efficient fat burning machine. The other HUGE plus is that my family are benefiting too. Hubby is heading towards 30 lbs lost and is planning on a visit to his Doc. to get new blood work done to find out if indeed this paleo lifestyle is everything it’s cracked up to be. Emma, my eldest and her best friend Caroline (HI Caroline, I know you read the blog ) and Caroline’s family follow the paleo way too. My youngest is claiming that she wants to opt out of the grains and try eating our alternatives more regularly. I swear to you this lifestyle ROCKS! I know I may sound a little cuckoo but hey I challenge you to give it a go for 2 weeks or 30 days and I guarantee you ALL the successes I have had! You up for it?!!! Drop us a comment if you are so we can support you and we can share in paleo power together.
If you’re into Paleo or even if you are on the fence you must check out the Paleo Summit that is going on right now. It’s a free webinar, 23 online presentations over 8 days. Check back here each day for the latest presentations and interviews. I have leant so much about Paleo in watching a couple of short videos and listening to interviews from the pioneers and experts in the field of paleo! So don’t take my word for it, head over to either the Paleo Summit and register for yourself or we’ll see you here again each day to get the links for the presentations each day. Make up your own mind, take all the science and info on board. Process the basics and have those doubts made clear. It’s all good knowledge to have to make any changes for the good to your lifestyle which in turn allows you to pass on that knowledge to your kids and then them to their’s. Right?!
Ok sermon over… sorry! All I know is that I have never felt so good and healthy in all my life. I have never been so slim and trim and lean in many MANY years, IF EVER if I’m truthful! I am weighing in at 146 lbs (10 ½ stone) and I’m 5′ 10″ tall. I am one happy lady My weight loss has plateaued but I feel I’m still loosing mass as my clothes are still getting looser. I now know why this happens and how my body has become an efficient fat burner and uses what I eat to work in the way it is designed to. Anyway I’ll shut up now and you can make up your own mind Thanks for listening to me ramble on though
