What are your thoughts on occasional cheat meals? I love doing Paleo. I feel much better when I do it strictly versus eating the standard American "healthy" way, which we all know is not healthy at all.
Case in point: I had some sugar (normally zero sugar for me) on Thanksgiving. I went the rest of the weekend as usual; meat, veggies, nuts and oils. Yesterday I started to feel awful. My energy plummeted, I felt dehydrated despite it being a rest day and drinking lots of water. I just felt like I needed something with some carbs..which I normally do not crave. So my husband and I ordered a thin crust pizza. I ate a small amount and instantly felt better. No bloating, no remorse, and today I feel great back on my normal Paleo method. I know of course that pizza is not optimal, but every now and then can it help propel you when your energy lags and your body is craving it?
I'm interested to hear your thoughts.
