As someone that has been living by a "counting" kind of a system for a long time, the Paleo Diet seems like it might be a good plan to try for a while - just to switch it up. I am so incredibly tired of writing down every single thing I eat. It's exhausting. I can't event ell you how exhausting. Although, I guess I just don't like the idea of "not being able to have" something either. That is the trade off with the counting.
The Paleo diet is about eating simply - eating what the cavemen ate.
What I like about it:
- No counting
- Meat and veggies
- Fruit and Nuts
- Oils and avocados!!!!
- It's simplistic style
What I don't like:
- It's association with Cross Fit (sorry - I think some people are psychos, not you BOB) - Posting all your workouts and food choices. We get it - you are healthy and buff!!!!
- Eliminating entire food groups
- I think you should have dairy - mom always said so!
- Not being able to have the "cheat" meal or food
- What about drinks?!!?!?
I would like to maybe try this short term - not change forever, I normally eat fresh, healthy, non-processed foods anyway so this would not be a huge switch. This may just be a nice change for a while.
Do you Paleo?
