On wild horses and freedom

paleo-wildhorsesWe know that paleo is simple although for some perhaps never easy.  Every day there are moments for setbacks however what we can tell you of our paleo experience is that it is possible to satisfy your physical hunger.  Then it simply becomes a matter of waiting and watching the mind move.  And it does.

There are many who made a commitment to “detox” after Christmas.  Our tweet deck was buzzing with reference to a 21 day sugar detox immediately in that post Christmas lull. To us, that’s the “old way” speaking (being hard on your self) and something we have both left behind.

Perhaps the worst result on a sugar detox would be to complete the course and then go out and celebrate with a party meal!  Er…..you didn’t did you?

Paleo eating, primal eating is good eating.  It is steady eating.  It is happy eating and it provides a balanced life.  Have you ever eaten porridge oats with fruit or maple syrup for breakfast (standard dietary advice for the UK)  and then been crushed at 10.30 am by the need to eat?  Simply ravenous.  Same with toast and jam (whole grain or other) same with Cornflakes and  Special K you name it eating the wrong food for breakfast can cause the same issues.  Experiment and report back!

Nora Gedgaudas writes “nothing is more destablising to the brain and nervous system than blood sugar surges (and food sensitivity reactions).  Nothing is more stabilising to the brain than dietary fat”  And this mirrors our experience on a paleo diet.  And this is a constant experience.  It is freedom from the storms of emotion than can rip through so destructively when we eat a high carbohydrate high sugar diet and ride the roller coaster of hormonal response.

So what do you take from this article?  Simply this.  Eat a constant paleo diet and you may well be surprised at the many unintended benefits that follow.
