No need to be afraid of meat!

Hello, I am Rita. I am a 20 year old female living in New York City. I am born into an Albanian family with carb-loving carnivores. That decided to stop for me about a month ago because I've had enough of feeling low energy, self- conscious, and unhappy for no reason. Then I thought to myself maybe it's the food I've been consuming. Coming from a southeastern European family we are raised to eat pasta, bread, white potatoes, sweets and all of that junk.

Hello, I am Rita. I am a 20 year old female living in New York City. I am born into an Albanian family with carb-loving carnivores. That decided to stop for me about a month ago because I've had enough of feeling low energy, self- conscious, and unhappy for no reason. Then I thought to myself maybe it's the food I've been consuming. Coming from a southeastern European family we are raised to eat pasta, bread, white potatoes, sweets and all of that junk. I recently came along a diet (well more like a lifestyle) that works for me and this lifestyle change is called the Paleo diet. Although I love my carbs, I love my meat even more so I can definitely live without the bread, pasta and the rest of the processed junk. My goal is to look, feel, sleep, and think better and not only that, but to pass this lifestyle change to my children and my children's children. We were made to hunt, gather, and eat real natural food, and not food that comes out of a cardboard box. If the cavemen and cavewomen did it millions of years ago, who says we can't do it today? Anything can happen when you put your mind to it.

I looked and found a thread exploring the Palio diet.
I www.sparkpeople.com/ma/paleo-diet/7/
1/25136189
You could also go to your start page www.sparkpeople.com/resource/motivat
ion_articles.asp?id=1124
and look under spark teams for one that is using that plan.
I am not big on eating a lot of meat.
But my son and his wife have been on Atkins for years.
Palio is mostly meat ... so similar.
Go for what works for you and you will find those who are also using the same diet and can help you get adjusted... Welcome to spark...

emoticon Welcome to Spark. You have taken an important step on your journey by joining!
I've been a member almost 3 years. I made fantastic progress and lost 100 pounds in the first year BUT I became careless about nutrition and exercise and have gained a lot of the pounds back! I became disgusted with myself and closed my Spark account, but soon realized I NEEDED to be here. I'm back using the nutrition and exercise trackers now - they are so important. The sense of community and the friendships I have made here keep me going!
Explore the site, make your Sparkpage if you havenít, join teams, and make friends. You will find this site an amazing place full of encouragement, inspiration, advice, and support.
Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with.
Good luck!
Sheila
