Persistance pays off

Saturday, April 09, 2011

I have been eating according to the primal lifestyle for 3 weeks now. And I have had incremental gains every week. I have tightened up my calories, but I just wasn't feeling like I had lost any weight, in fact feeling like I had gained again. Yesterday I was actually considering going back to a somewhat CW diet. Not processed foods, but maybe adding in some whole grains and doing what I know has worked for me in the past. After all there are tons of people out there eating grains and high carb foods and losing weight! I have done it myself!

The more I thought about it, the more I know I can't. After reading Good Calories, Bad Calories and The Primal Blueprint, I know that we are not meant to be eating grains and certainly not grains that have been processed to death! I know this is the right way for me to eat at this time.

Today I hopped on the scale (even though I had considered staying away from it) and I had lost 1 lb. It's only 1, and I have more to go, but it helped me see that yes, this is right. It takes time to stop a ship and get it turned around, but it is turning emoticon

I was also doing a little research on insulin resistance. I have a lot of the symptoms and I want to avoid all those nasty complications and diseases it progresses to. I came across an article that absolutely confirmed for me that yes, a paleo/primal diet is what I should be following!

I am so over the moon happy today! I am also taking the advice of my paleo teammates and focusing on the health and wellness, and letting the weight take care of itself. (which it will) emoticon

    Have you tried taking measurements instead of going by the scale? For me, measurements are much more accurate now that I've switched to primal.
