For 2012, I’ve decided to do something I’ve never done: eat like a caveman. So, starting tomorrow – I already killed it today putting creamer/sugar in my coffee – I’m going to eat nothing but whole foods for 30 days, just to see how my body reacts. In the past, by cutting out bread and potatoes, I’ve noticed a significant difference in my attitude and appearance, and this Paleo diet, short for the Paleolithic diet, follows the way our ancestors used to eat and is “Centered on commonly available modern foods… mainly of fish, grass-fed pasture raised meats, vegetables, fruit, roots, and nuts, and excludes grains, legumes, dairy products, salt, refined sugar, and processed oils.”
So…here’s to nutritional offroading! Last night, I had my “last supper,” – a celebratory dinner consisting of orange (fried) chicken, rice and broccoli from Applebee’s. Sometimes, I just have to start this way!
I’m excited to go off sugar and flour because I believe it’s hard for the body to process, but I’m also looking forward to the self discovery that changing my eating habits will bring!
I will post before and after pictures, AFTER!
