We are all brought to eating paleo for different reasons. For some of us, eating paleo is a way to alleviate our symptoms. For others, it is simply a way to eat healthier or lose some weight. No matter what brought you to paleo eating, the hardest part can be getting started.
We read little tidbits, here and there. We research the rules of eating paleo. We go out and purchase tons of fruits, veggies, and grass fed meats.
But, then, what do we do?
For me, the greatest help, was finding a program I could easily follow. I also wanted a program that would address my carb cravings. Although I had gone gluten-free months before, I was eating lots of gluten-free breads, corn chips, pretzels, and pasta. I would also need a paleo program that would work with my special autoimmune needs.
Through my research, I found the perfect paleo program, The 21-Day Sugar Detox, by Diane Sanfilippo,Buy here
. Her program had everything I needed. I ordered her book from Amazon immediately.
Every month, Diane begins a new group to do The 21-Day Sugar Detox, together. If you like group support, I highly recommend starting your program with one of these groups. She posts daily motivation, check-ins, and updates through emails and Facebook. I’ll provide the links at the end of this post.
I began my group program on January 6, 2014. Every day, I posted about my experiences on Boho and Mo, my holistic lifestyle blog. In case you haven’t read any of these posts, but, would like to, I’m giving you links to each day’s post. I highly recommend reading them, to get a sense of how the program works.
Reading these posts can give you a sense of what it’s like to follow a paleo program. It’s much easier than trying to go about eating paleo on your own. And, following this particular program, can help you get rid of those sugar and carb cravings.
My decision, after following The 21-Day Sugar Detox, was to continue eating paleo. The fact that I felt so much better made it a pretty easy decision for me. It is so much easier to follow a pre-set program, than to try to do things on your own.
I would like to let you know that I do not receive compensation for this opinion. It’s simply the method I used to begin eating paleo. I understand that not everything works for everybody. But, I truly believe, this program will make going paleo so much easier for you.
Did you have success with a different introduction to paleo eating? I would love to hear about your tips and successes. Please Comment!
