Have you heard of the paleo diet? It’s a popular weight loss plan now and is also known as hunter gatherer diet or caveman diet plan but more than being a diet plan most people who are into paleo eating consider it as a lifestyle. The concept is to have a diet that runs on foods that our caveman ancestors used to eat. This is to prevent diseases and even obesity.
Think of foods available during the Paleolithic or Stone age period. If the food exists during those times, then it is a paleo food.
Example of paleo foods are meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, herbs, spices, healthy fats, and oils.
Foods to avoid on the paleo diet are processed foods, refined sugar, soft drinks, grains, dairy products, legumes, artificial sweeteners, vegetable oils, margarine and trans fats.

David vs Advocare Challenge
Pounds are dropping and inches are melting away quick. During the first 10 days of Advocare 24-day Challenge I went through some rough times with the changes in my diet. Eating every 3 hours on my schedule was a challenge. I can’t always put my work on hold to eat and I usually forget to eat all day. This diet made me pay closer attention to meal timing. After a few days of forcing myself to eat my stomach did a great job of reminding me to eat. I wasn’t really hungry, I just felt like I needed to eat. Day 5 was the first day I was actually hungry. After talking to a coach and looking up day 5 on the web, I found out that eating a little more protein would help relieve my hunger. Days 6-10 were easy. My reward was so worth everything. I was 12 lbs lighter and I had lost 16.5 inches overall.Continue reading
Lisa Advocare Challenge Day 14 Update
As of today I have lost 5 pounds and 3.5 overall inches. I have learned that the Fiber drink is good if you mix it with your spark in the morning. I used the orange flavor and it taste like a powder mix orange juice. I have tried the chocolate, berry, and chocolate peanut butter shakes. I did not like the chocolate peanut butter and the berry was ok. My favorite is the chocolate. There are a lot of pills to remember to take at different times of the days. I set my phone to remind me at work so I don’t forget to take them.Continue reading
