How Is Your New Year’s Resolution Going?

by Glenda

paleoLike a lot of people my new year’s resolution was to eat better and exercise. Well, I don’t know about you, but I am not doing well. So I decided that I am going to try this new diet that I have been seeing. It is called the paleo diet or paleolithic diet. It is a nutritional plan based on the diet of the paleolithic humans. The premise is that human genetics have scarcely changed since the dawn of agriculture and that modern humans are adapted to the paleolithic diet.

The diet consists mainly of fish, grass-fed pasture raised meats, eggs, vegetables, fruit, fungi, roots, and nuts. The diet excludes grains, legumes, dairy products, potatoes, refined salt, refined sugar, and processed oils. If you are thinking about trying the diet out, the library has a few books that could help you out:

I’ve been doing graduated NYRs this year. So mine is going well because once I get used to doing one for a month it’s habit by month two. And so on. Paleo is definitely not one of mine, though; I’m more a vegetable kind of gal. To each his or her own but I think it’s just another fad diet that’s hard on your organs. If you’re really set on it, though, there’s an Atlanta restaurant that caters to it and even offers “Paleo Boxes” to get you started. It’s called UrbanPL8. I can only vouch for their tofu red curry, which is astonishingly good.
