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.

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!
