I can't tell you how many people ask me "How can you eat like that every meal, every day" "I could never give up pasta and pizza" Here is my answer: do it for 2+ weeks then tell me how you feel. If that is NOT enough to answer your question then have a meal with pasta or bread in it after not having any grains for 2 weeks and then tell me how you feel! "No one said it would be easy just that it would be worth it" This quote is so true for Paleo/Primal, more so in the beginning when your still fighting the old lifestyle and cravings. I can better understand and listen to my body now, I don't obsess over counting calories, I just JERF (just eat real food).
I do it because of how I feel, better sleep, better complexion, and more energy! I love this lifestyle and yes will say slightly obsessed. If you are a serious part of my life you have listened me gab on and on about it or about what I made for dinner! I will never go back to eating grains or legumes ever again. I try to keep as many supportive, positive and motivating people around me. Once I changed my way of eating it seemed like my way of thinking about things had changed as well, or maybe I just hit a point in life where I don't worry so much about what others think and have become much more positive, healthy and confident.
I have had 3 friends just start Paleo/Primal
1) lost 3 Lbs. in a week
2) lost 6 Lbs. in a week
Way to go ladies <3
