Paleo Diet Before and After Photos
I am fully behind the paleo diet and it’s health benefits. I have been eating paleo for the last five years and have personally discovered how health can be optimized with this nutrition plan.
I was vegetarian (almost vegan) during college, and well into medical school. I was always tired, would get dizzy when I stood up, had problems losing belly fat, and had very little energy to exercise. During medical school and numerous nutrition plans, I discovered the paleo diet.
I feel great, and have felt great! My exercise and stamina has been increased, my focus is improved, I no longer want to nap in the middle of the day, and I am able to keep weight off, even if I can’t make it to the gym or take my daily run!
There is a time and a place for being really strict with your diet, like when you have debilitating food sensitivities or when you’re preparing for an athletic competition. For everyone else who’s trying to live a long, healthy life AND have fun while doing it, give yourself a break sometimes and eat what feeds your soul. That’s why we give you the Flex Days if you want them on the Paleo Plan Meal Plan. It’s good for two reasons. One, you get to live a little. And two, the bloating or headache or (enter symptom here) you might get after indulging will help you remember why you’re eating Paleo in the first place 😉
In general, eating Paleo means eating veggies, fruits, meats, fish, certain fats, nuts, and seeds. And it means removing grains (breads, pastas, rice, etc), beans, soy, dairy, certain vegetable oils, and refined sugar from your diet. But you probably want more details than that, right?
