So I have been eating paleo for about 5 weeks now. To say the diet has been liberating would be an understatement...I started it to lose weight but never knew that it would free me of my constant hourly battle with hunger, cravings and guilt.
Anyways just wanted to share something and see if it has been an issue with anyone else..
I had a huuge realisation last night whilst at a friends bbq which was jam packed with SAD food. We had all had our main meals and then dessert rolled around...Various crumbles and chocolate slices with ice cream and more. Everyone started tucking in and when I didnt they all commented that "Gosh this must be really hard for you to resist". It was at that point that I realised for the first time that actually...NO! IT was so easy for me to resist and I actually didnt WANT it anymore. That I wasnt resisting it, it just wasnt a part of my life anymore. I think I have associated my own personality and who I am with occassions revolving aruond junk and crap food etc for so long that it just became such a huge part of my life out of pure habit.
Might not sound very big to anyone else but it was honestly huge for me! And boy did it feel good when about 15 mins later when all the sugar started to kick in, everybpdy started to complain about "feeling sick and tired". That really reconfirmed why I have moved over from the dark side!!!
Anyone else had a similar experience???!
