Stepping Up and Stepping Out

spring cleanSometimes its hard to step up and out of your groove.  Things get stuck.  We get fat.  It happens.  So how do you motivate yourself enough to make a difference to where you’re at?  You take action.  Direct action.  Stand up and move.  Be physical.  Make a start and clear out the cupboards!

Take out anything and everything that is going to make you fat.  Anything and everything that is going to make it hard for you to achieve balance, anything and everything that will cause you to wobble.  If it upsets  you to throw it out: take it round to a friend or a neighbour and see if they can use it. Hand it out at a housing project, meals on wheels, local charity, sell it: it doesn’t matter just lose it.  Clear the space for something good to come into your life.

And then, when the house is clear, replace those unhelpful items with things you can use.  Things that will make you feel fantastic, things that will help you get creative in the kitchen.  Choose good quality meats, seasonal vegetables, eggs, spices of every variety and flavour, nuts, seeds, good fats and fruit.

You will find that without the distraction of processed food and with the temptation of real food, real fat, real taste, colours, textures you will want to cook and create new meals.  Make it easy, keep it simple and let your paleo experience grow from there!

Tonight we baked home-grown Bramley apples in the oven and filled them full with bilberries we had gathered from the moors above our home.  The greens and purples looked fresh and made a simple good dessert with a spoonful of Greek yoghurt for topping..

Do you have any experience of gathering foods?  We’d love to hear your story…

About Paleo Works

Paleo Works Have you ever wondered how you arrived at “being overweight” and thought how difficult it is to get rid of and keep off those excess pounds? Hi, I’m Katie and together with Mike my husband, we are Paleo Works. As a busy working mum of four, I often watched others embark on weight loss progammes only to return to their start weight (and then some) shortly after reaching their target. Why was this happening? Conventional dietary wisdom would have us believe that it’s YOU who has failed. But Mike and I thought different. We felt that there had to be something wrong with that conventional dietary wisdom after all we can’t all be hopeless? So we studied intensely, sought out advice and read avidly. We questioned robustly and talked with many on various 'dieting' regimes. What we found was radical, our story has to be told, our knowledge has to be shared. So If you are ready to stop blaming your self for being overweight and ready to change your approach to weight loss then contact us and let’s get started!
