Paleo Diet

So, I’ve been realizing that although my eating habits aren’t bad: I eat fruits, vegetables, low-fat milk, whole grains etc, however I’ve noticed myself still being bloated and my stomach is upset a lot of the time. My doctor thinks that I may be lactose intolerant or allergic to gluten “or both or neither” so for the next month she wants me to try the Paleo Diet. The Paleo Diet for those of you who don’t know is basically only eating what our ancestors would eat before agriculture. So basically I get to eat meat (the leaner the better), fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, etc.

I have to cut out a number of things

  1. Sodas
  2. Partially Hydrogenated Oils
  3. Junk Food
  4. Fast Food
  5. Grains
  6. Dairy
  7. Processed Foods
  8. Legumes
  9. Potatoes
  10. Pseudograins

Really the only thing that will be really hard for me is potatoes. And we are allowed coconut and almond milk so I will be enjoying those things.

A friend of mine tried this diet and lost 9 inches off her waist in 1 week and her grandpa’s diabetes is in control now because of this diet but honestly I just hope I can enjoy a meal without being up all night with an upset stomach.

I’ll be posting an update on my Paleo diet and college soon and if you have any suggestions or questions for me about the diet please let me know!

Happy Shredding

3rd Fit Test

Hey all,

So a few quick things before I discuss my 3rd fit test.

I visited my school for orientation last week and chose all of my classes. I’m so excited for all my classes and will be switching my major, I’m not sure what I’ll be changing it to yet, but after orientation I realized that business is not for me.

The day before I left for California, my family and I went to the beach and although I did apply SPF75 sunscreen my back was burnt to a crisp. I was so uncomfortable on the plane and could barely walk Sunday and Monday night so I didn’t work out those two days. I’m upset with myself but I was in so much pain getting that extra work out wasn’t worth it. I did however get more than 10,000 steps both of those days. So, it’s not like I laid on my butt I just couldn’t put a sports bra on and do vigorous exercising.

Anyway, here are my 3rd attempt at the fit test results.
