It's no secret that I'm not a very healthy eater. This is not for lack of trying; I just tend to have a little more self-control on the working out part of a healthy lifestyle versus the eating part. I have a couple of friends that have successfully tried and stuck with the slow-carb, or 4-hour-body diet. I've been looking into this diet over the last couple of days and even attempted to try it, but I have to admit that this lasted for about 12 hours. I just cannot cut out fruit the way this diet requires!
But it is a sincere desire of mine to take better care of the body God has given me. We only get one, people! So now, I'm looking a little deeper into the Paleo Diet. Have you heard of it? If so, what are your thoughts? I would love, love if any of you would like to share your experiences with me.
I like that with this diet, you can eat fruit. Some paleo dietitians allow sweet potatoes because they are root vegetables; others ask for you to stay away. I'm a big potato person and since regular potatoes aren't allowed, I like that I could allow myself a sweet potato every now and then. And wine? Allowed (yay!). In small quantities, of course, but still allowed. Amen! (See a list of Paleo foods here.)
So please, share your thoughts on this diet with me. I'm really looking for a healthier lifestyle, not to loose a whole bunch of weight. And if 10 pounds falls off, I won't complain. :)
