Eat Like a Caveman

Ok so all I’ve been hearing about lately is the Paleo diet and how awesome it is. I’m not the only one right? A girl I work with is on it and today she brought in Paleo cupcakes which, to my surprise were absolutely DELICIOUS. I literally couldn’t believe that something made without sugar or regular cake mix could be so yummy. So after eating my entire cupcake we got to talking about what being Paleo was all about. 

For those of you that haven’t heard about the Paleo diet, it basically is a reversion back to what cavemen ate and nothing else. Aka no refined sugar, dairy, legumes or grains. Sounds pretty scary if you ask me. I’m not sure if I could live without cheese….. Anyway basically what you eat on this diet is meat, fish, poultry, fruits, and veggies. 

So, even though my co-worker seems to be gliding through this Paleo diet with ease, I’m not quiet convinced I could live in a world with absolutely no grains or dairy…. Anyone else thinking the same? Can you get enough nutrients? Do you have enough energy to still work out? Does the thing even make you lose weight? Let me know what you guys think, or chime in with any personal experience. I’m intrigued. 

 

ps: here is the recipe for the cupcakes if anyone is interested!

  1. I absolutely love the Paleo diet. I’m a big girl who has eaten carbs and sugar ALL HER LIFE, and I totally love it. I’ve done it before, had a lot of success on it, then reverted back to my old ways and gained weight back. I have tons of energy, and I feel great. I highly recommend it!

  2. Thanks for your feedback! Good to know it is do-able and not too bad to maintain. And as with all diets, I know reverting back to old ways is the number one downfall! (I think it has happened to us all more than once haha)

  3. Read Mark Sisson’s – Primal Blueprint – the book will literally change you. It isn’t a diet but a lifestyle change. You don’t have to count calories, watch portion control, macros, etc. As long as you stay within the guidelines you can lose 1-2 pounds a week at ease.

    • Not counting calories is like a weight off my shoulders! Thanks for the book, I will definitely be looking that up. I’m glad to hear you can make a change for good. I plan to slowly start changing my diet for the better and paleo seems the best route!
