The Paleo lifestyle in itself seemed pretty basic and easy to follow (been Paleo for about 6 months now). But when you throw in all the rest of the things like percentages, levels, fats, workouts, when to fast, when not to fast, eat carbs, don't eat carbs, medical stats and terms etc...
It can become very complicated and overwhelming and to me that in itself is not very Paleo in the simplistic sense of the idea. It's trying to get everything just right that becomes discouraging to me.
I do IF my own way some days fasting dinner and other days 36 hour fasts. But there are so many rules to the right and wrong way to do everything that really gets me stressed. And everyone has a different opinion. I really dislike the percentages/math to everything as well.
For me paleo was the only thing that made sense, because of my already organic lifestyle and my bad gluten allergy. I learned about the Paleo lifestyle from another friend with celiacs disease they turned me on to Marks Daily Apple. There were both pros and cons to his idea of "primal" living. The exercise I can not do, I am very restricted. But the eating was spot on! The problem is that more I read about the Primal and Paleo lifestyles the more they become difficult to understand. And that frustrates me. Eating should be natural and simple. I highly doubt that grok was watching percentages. This is where I feel like I am in the twilight zone, what should be simple eating is now made highly complex.
Can someone please hack my fustration?
