Today marks six weeks of Paleo for Craig and I. How’d we do?
I think we did pretty well. We didn’t make it through 100% of the time, but I’m pretty certain we averaged over 80%, probably closer to 90%. I coped a little better with office lunches than my sandwich-fan husband, but that was always expected.
My smallest pair of jeans, the jeans I couldn’t fit 6 weeks ago? are now the only pair of jeans I own which fit properly.
So what now?
Much to Craig’s chagrin, I don’t want to jump back on the refined carbohydrate bandwagon. But I miss … soy sauce. And tortillas. And chickpeas.
(I really don’t miss dairy, or bread)
I think the lasting impact of Paleo is more about eating whole foods.
I read more labels than ever before. I avoid emulsifiers and stabilisers and ridiculous additives. Unusually, I’m eating more organic than … ever. It just seems to be making sense to me.
Oh and the coworker who said he would waste us all? Didn’t make it a week. Victory!
