Now, let me introduce myself. My name is Jesssica Reinhardt. I am a new coach at Crossroads Bootcamp, and I have been following a Paleo lifestyle for over a year. I am excited to introduct you to eating Paleo.
About a year ago I was eating what i considered to be a “healthy” diet. Whole grains, low fat, lean meats, and of course fruits and vegetables. However, I struggled with constantly being tired, feeling bloated, and other nasty gut related problems. In fact, I had been struggling with these problems ever since my teenage years, and after many doctor visits and a variety of “fixes” nothing seemed to fix the problem. I had come to terms with the fact that I would always feel this way. Then I was introduced to the Paleo lifestyle. I was skeptical, just like you probably are, but I took a leap of faith and decided to give it a try. After the first two weeks I was already seeing a difference in my energy levels and I noticed my bloating and gut ailments dissipating. Now, after almost a year of a Paleo lifestyle, I am alert and energized throughout my entire day, and all the gut problems that I had been struggling with for so long have completely disappeared. A nice little bonus to all of this was the improvements in my performance during workouts and the inches that have also come off my waist line.
My story is nothing phenomenal; however there are some out there that are truly inspiring. I highly encourage you to spend some time with my friend Google and see what other personal Paleo stories you can find. There are some great ones out there as well as a ton of helpful websites, blogs and books to keep you focused and inspired.
A “Paleo” lifestyle is first and foremost about eating real food. With frozen meals and fast-food restaurants dominating our lives it is hard to remember what a home cooked meal tastes like. While most of us who follow a “Paleo” lifestyle still eat some things on the “No” list now and then, this challenge is a strict Paleo challenge
Do Eat: meat, seafood, eggs, tons of veggies, some fruits, and plenty of good fats from fruits, oils, nuts, and seeds.
Don’t Eat: sugar of any kind (even sugar substitutes), alcohol, grains, dairy, or starchy vegetables (aka white, red, or gold potatoes.)
Before you go think about giving up on all of this, let me give you a little insight into why eating this way is so beneficial. Many of us don’t realize that the foods we eat create substantial hormone imbalances in our bodies, wreak havoc on our gut, promote inflammation, and make us feel plain-ol’ run down. By completely eliminating the foods listed above you are able to let your body heal and recover from whatever effects the foods you eat might be having on your body. You might not believe me now but during this program your life will do a 180. You will come to think about food in a completely different way. Instead of food being the enemy you will learn how eating good foods improve your health both physically and mentally.
