-“Hey Doc. I’m 5’7, i’m 32 years old and i’ve had 3 kids. What should my ideal weight be?”
– ” Well that’s easy. It’s 5x the diameter of your hand divided by 7x 1/5 of your Ulna.”
-“That’ll be 100 dollars. 

Ok. Maybe i’m exaggerating a bit (some might think i’m not). But aren’t Diets becoming more and more complicated…and expensive?

Here are 8 reasons why starting a Paleo Lifestyle will be the simplest, best thing you can do for yourself,your body,  your mental well-being and your wallet!

#8: Say Goodbye to feeling hungry

 Eating food that’s natural will give you all the proteins, fats and carbs your body needs. Eat when you’re hungry, stop when you’re satisfied. Simple enough!

#7:No need to read food labels.

Eating natural and healthy should NEVER EVER involve math or fancy scientific names. They are all real single-ingredient foods. No more counting calories or grams of sugar!!

#6 Variety of foods is HUGE.

Yes you will give up Pasta and Breads. But the list of things you will eat will keep you more than satisfied!  There are probably things you’ve never even tried. My wife made Paleo Chocolate Chip cookies once….and they were very good! (Maybe i’ll post the recipe soon on our Facebook page).

#5 So easy to prepare a meal a Caveman can do it…Literally! 

It doesn’t get easier. Start with a meat or fish. Add one or two types of vegetables. Eat Fats as you want. My favorite fats are avocados and nuts for salads and  coconut oil for cooking. Saturated fats are natural, trans fats are not!

#4 It’s not “more” Expensive.

This has to be the number one excuse for people not doing Paleo. Let me say this one more time, eating PALEO will actually save you money! It’s easy to find too, I was surprised how much Paleo food I was able to get at my local grocery store for less than I used to spend on groceries.

#3 No more Junk Food Cravings. 

Your body prefers real food if given the option. Once you jump off the processed carbohydrate bandwagon, your body will stop bugging you for chips and cookies.

#2 You’ll eat colorful foods

Colorful foods on your plate makes it seem more delicious, it also means foods are full of nutrients and flavor.

#1 You’ll Never Have to Diet again!

Eating Paleo will finally free you from all of the dieting you’ve put yourself through. You can stop counting carbs, calories and fat grams forever. As long as you stick to natural food, you will turn into that hot cavewoman or caveman you’ve always wanted to. Your body will look, feel and function much better.

There was a man taking a morning walk around the beach on a beautiful Sunday morning. He saw that along with the morning tide came hundreds of starfish. He also saw that when the tide receded the starfish would be left behind under the sun rays and die. The man decided to pick them up, one by one and throw them back to the ocean. 

Another man saw what he was doing and asked, “What are you doing? There are hundreds of starfish ? How can you help? What difference does it make? “

The first man did not reply,took two more steps,  picked up another starfish, threw it back to the water and said “It makes a difference to this one.” 

How many times have you heard, “What difference does it make”?  I bet dozens of times!
Better yet, how many times have you told this to yourself ?  I bet hundreds!

Think about how you usually respond to a question like this. Most of us, including myself, just give up at the possibility of not really knowing if we are making a difference. We make excuses for ourselves.

We decide not to eat an apple today because we know we’re going out for pizza tomorrow night, so what difference does it make. We choose to stay at home where it’s comfortable instead of playing outside with our dogs because…heck..what difference does it make. We sometimes decide not to go to the gym that day, i mean…”we all need a break”…what difference does it make if I miss the gym today. Got a chiropractic adjustment today?…I’ll just reschedule for next week….what difference does it make. Maybe I can just give my kids Nyquil so they can fall asleep faster instead of reading them a story……the doctor said it’s “safe”.

The man in that story could’ve stopped picking up starfish, head home and enjoy the rest of his Sunday. He decided not to.

He chose to make a little change, he chose to make a little difference for that starfish, for himself!

Think of 5 things you have made an excuse for not doing. Write them down. Now, promise yourself today that those 5 “little” things you’ve stopped doing will start getting done from now on! You will see how those little five changes will create an incredible difference in your life.
