For those of you interested in transforming your diet to this style of eating simply and realistically, read on.
First and foremost, Paleo is referred to as a “diet” when in actuality it is more of a lifestyle. There are certain communities, such as CrossFit enthusiasts, that have made the Paleo way of eating more mainstream over the past several years. You don’t have to be a hardcore athlete or excel in endurance sports to adopt this way of eating and living. Simply choose to make time for daily exercise and include whole, natural, unprocessed foods into your diet and you are there.
When you decide to adopt new eating and moving patterns, the shift can feel overwhelming. Take heart! You do not have to make rapid changes all at once. Here are some great tips for getting started.
Do not go into this process blindly. There are great resources online that will give you a great start when it comes to increasing your knowledge about the Paleo lifestyle. Former research biologist and author of The Paleo Solution, Robb Wolf, has a great website full of scientifically backed information. Mark Sission of Marksdailyapple.com has been a long time PALEO proponent and offers readers insight into the Primal lifestyle. If you want to get down to the nitty gritty basics, UltimatePaleoLifestyle.com offers simple graphics and lists to make grocery shopping a breeze.
If you are accustomed to eating a highly processed diet, start small. You can begin by removing processed grains from your diet and replacing them with whole foods instead. Love spaghetti? Ditch the packaged noodles and use “zoodles” instead. By spiralizing zucchini, you can create veggie noodles that pack a serious nutritional punch. Instead of a handful of crackers for a snack, you can opt for nuts, seeds, or a piece of whole fruit. You don’t have to spend tons of money and make hefty promises that will only set you up for failure. Rather, eliminate one thing at a time until you are ready to take on something new. Remember that you are creating a lifestyle, not a diet. This journey is about progress and not perfection.
