Blog Number 1 for Winter 2013 5% Challenge

Saturday, March 02, 2013

The question I need to answer for this challenge is what new habit do I want to establish. This isn't a brand new habit but it is fairly new to me. I want to get back to eating clean and following the Paleo eating lifestyle. The Paleo eating lifestyle consists of the following: fresh meats (preferably grass-produced or free-ranging beef, pork, lamb, poultry, and game meat), fish, seafood, fresh fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, and healthful oils (olive, coconut, avocado, macadamia, walnut and flaxseed). It also consists of avoiding the following: dairy products, cereal grains, legumes, refined sugars, processed foods, and bread.

Stay tuned this week for more on this challenge.

    Actually the DASH diet was recently featured on Dr. Oz which advocated starting the diet with no grains (not even whole wheat) nor dairy. It keeps the blood sugar stable. Good luck!

    I completed the Whole30 program Dec - Jan, felt great, and then went back to my old habits; emoticon . My DH got very cranky not having his grains and dairy in the house, and I got tired of listening to the complaints! For this challenge, I'm trying to follow Bob Harper's Skinny Rules, but I may ease back into the Paleo lifestyle.

I hope you blog more on your progress!

    My daughter has been trying to do this too. She is getting tripped up by cupcakes. She is full time Nanny and they always have cupcakes in the house. Good luck! I hear that Paleo diet really gives great results!
