Living The Paleo Way 10
Now we are going to go over some of the difficulties involved in switching to the paleo way of life.
This is a difficult question to answer because it’s all relative. What may seem easy to one person may be difficult to another.
That being said, the paleo diet is slightly more difficult to follow than other diets. Don’t let that discourage you though because it’s also more effective.
The goal of the paleo lifestyle is to remove unhealthy and even toxic foods from our diet.
As we know, it isn’t about calories, carb consumption or other normal factors that most diets concern themselves with.
It’s about eating food in its natural form without additives, preservatives and other substances that most people can’t even pronounce.
Food products with unidentifiable ingredients aren’t suitable for human consumption despite what the food manufactures and the FDA say.
Our early ancestors didn’t consume these foods and our body’s aren’t designed to process them so they end up getting stored in the liver or as excess fat.
As we also know, grains, sugar and certain other foods aren’t allowed either.
This makes it difficult for many people who have lived all their lives eating foods that contain restricted ingredients.
The exclusion of grain means no more breads and pastries.
Not eating sugar means giving up comfort foods such as cookies, cakes and ice cream. It’s all just overwhelming especially in the beginning.
The question then arises… What can we eat?
Even salt is severely limited. Meats such as sausages, salami, etc. aren’t allowed.
This can seem almost depressing.
The paleo diet also encourages people to cook their own food since most of the commercially available foods do not meet the dietary standards.
This is another hassle. Grocery shopping and cooking.
Furthermore, paleo dieters cook their food in big batches to last a few days.
All this definitely takes effort.
The diet also recommends eating organic produce and grass-fed meats. This can be expensive and that is another factor that can demoralize a new paleo dieter.
However, one need not be so rigid and eat only organic produce or grass-fed meats. Normal meat and veggies will do if your budget isn’t big.
Despite all these conditions and sacrifices, thousands of people all over the world give glowing testimonials and reviews of the paleo diet.
It has made people lose weight, feel ache and pain free, lower diabetes symptoms and effects, have a healthier relationship with food, have less allergies and much more.
The sacrifices you make in the beginning will bring you rewards in the future.
Once you conquer your sugar cravings, after 2 or 3 months, you will not have them anymore.
A body that is getting all the nutrients it needs doesn’t get cravings.
In fact, if you will just try out the paleo diet for 3 weeks or a month, you will automatically see and feel the difference.
This is intangible and must be experienced to understand the benefits of a paleo diet.
If you have the determination and are willing to go through the ‘hard yards’ in the beginning, you will become healthy, happy and proud of your achievements later on.
Mastering the paleo lifestyle is indeed an achievement.
It takes effort and dedication just like all the best things in life.
