I´ve been trying out many ways to eat for the last couple of years. Vegetarian, vegan, raw-food, lchf, paleo, intermittent fasting... You name it. Mostly because of my own interest in finding a way to eat that I like and that makes me feel good both physically and mentally.
When I manage to eat strictly paleo life gets so much easier.
All my stomach problems just goes away. Like that. It´s like a blessing. And I believe that it´s thanks to a combination of two things: better eating habits and food that my stomach finds easy digest.
Also I lose weight. And I´m not even overweight from the beginning thanks to an active lifestyle. The reason for the dropping scale that is more awareness of what I put in my mouth. Not only WHAT I eat but HOW I eat.
I get happier. And that´s a no brainer. I am forced to deal with life without food as a comforting friend and when I succeed with that my self confidence grows enormously. I also lose weight and feel happier in my body, not with pain in my stomach all the time and I can wear my clothes without having to think about if they fit or not.
Nothing about paleo is really hard for me to understand. I get it. I know what I feel is good for me to eat. I´ve been following Mark for years. The only thing, and the REAL challenge, is that I have a girl inside of me that constantly asks for food as company, as a friend, as comfort. She does not like paleo. At all. She is beside me every hour of the day and I am so sick of it.
So now I decided to do something totally new for me. I´ll use MDA as a friend in space and hopefully this forum can give me power to maintain the lifestyle and the good habits that I love so much.
Spending time with friends and family, crossfit, health (medicine), biking/hiking in the summertime.
