I am not what you would call a health nut, but I have always been interested in healthy living. I played a lot of sports growing up and ate pretty healthy. In the last few years I started to focus my diet on reducing added sugar and focusing on fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. I also started working out pretty hard at the gym. I hired a personal trainer, took classes, and worked out on my own before the sun rose.
I loved the endorphin high, but after a few months, I was getting this nagging feeling of boredom. I wasn’t feeling fantastic, which I attributed to school and a lot of stress. I had read and heard about paleo/primal diets on various websites before and have a friend who has been doing paleo for a few years now. I never had much interest, but this time around, I really took the time to read some of those websites.
What I read really piqued my curiosity and the health benefits are really what I’m going for. I won’t mind if I lose a few pounds either.
I started eating a Paleo/Primal diet in June 2011. Along with the diet, I’m hoping to get on a better sleep schedule and create a calm lifestyle.
As of now, this is a big self-experiment. There are still a lot of adjustments to be made and things to figure out. I decided to keep this blog to keep track of what I eat and what changes I am making.
If you haven’t heard about paleo or primal eating please refer to following websites for information:
