I don't eat Paleo to be healthy - I eat Paleo so I don't feel like crap.
This is my way of saying: I'm a total Paleo hack. :)
But I am enthusiastic about how great I feel. How I had my third baby in my 40's - my first Paleo pregnancy - and it was the easiest by far! I love how I lost almost 50 pounds - and kept it off. And I love how my children are easy going, un-whining people I don't have to chase away from the cookie jar.
So, is it harder to be Paleo than just eating the Standard American Diet?
Yes and no.
It's way harder than just ordering a pizza or going through the Wendy's drive through (which I used to do all the time). But it's way easier than feeling exhausted, having joint pain or back pain, being cranky, or living with cranky kids.
I went Paleo in 2011 and I haven't gone back. Not once. So far Paleo has been good to me. And it's getting better all the time. Now, with mayo!
