Preparing Yourself for Paleo Success

One of the best things that you can do for yourself when you start your paleo journey is to prepare yourself for success. Believe it or not, preparing for success isn’t just about motivating yourself it is also about identifying your potential obstacles, making plans for ways to get around those obstacles, and finding ways for you to keep yourself motivated.

Even though the goal of eating paleo is to achieve your best health and weight, it will take some time to get there. If you go into this journey expecting your motivation to be enough to change your life, you will likely fail. Likewise, if you go into this journey thinking about all of the things that are going to go wrong you will likely fail. There is a balance for being successful, and a big part of that balance is knowing how to be realistic about what you should expect while still being confident that you are going to be able to achieve your goals.

It takes 21 days to create a habit. By that logic if you think about everything good and bad that you may experience in the next 21 days then you are getting yourself …

Where to Buy Paleo Foods Online

Shopping for paleolithic-approved foods at your local grocer can be difficult. You have been shopping a certain way for a very long time, either years or decades. That means that you are used to spending a lot of time in the interior aisles of your favorite supermarkets.

Top Paleo Meal Delivery Services

When Henry Ford adopted the assembly line as a process for making automobiles, little did he know he was contributing to the growth of your waistline. Cars replaced horse-drawn buggies, and pizza chains and other restaurants now use vehicles to deliver food to your front door. Unfortunately, most delivery food is less than healthy. Much of it certainly doesn’t qualify as paleo-friendly. Lately though, in the United States and other countries, paleo meal delivery services have become commonplace.

This is a simple way to have a virtual paleo chef cooking for you. You go online, place your order, either one-time orders or weekly and monthly deliveries, and you simplify the paleo eating process.

Simple Tricks to Keep You Feeling Full On The Paleo Diet

When you go paleo, it means you are going to be consuming food that is nutritionally supercharged. As opposed to the simple carbohydrates, junk food, sugar and fast foods you may have been eating in the past, paleo food is often low in calories and carbohydrates. It is nutritionally dense, which is a good thing, but the fact that you aren’t taking in as many carbs and calories as you are used to means you may feel hungry eating these types of healthy foods.

Fortunately, there are some easy ways to combat these hunger pains.

Eat More Frequently

One simple way to keep yourself feeling full is to spread your meals and snacks out over 5 or 6 sessions. We have been taught to eat 3 major meals in many modern societies. Unfortunately, this is not the best way to keep you feeling full all day long and to keep your metabolism cranked up. Eat 3 sensible meals and 2 or 3 snacks during the day, and drink water, black tea or green tea all day long. This keeps cravings at bay, and keeps your belly full.

Drink A Lot

Eating paleo means avoiding most foods and drinks which require …

Preparing Your Paleo Kitchen

They say that if you are selling your home, spending some time redoing your kitchen can return several times the amount of money you invest when you finally make the sale. The same is true when you spend money on your kitchen for health purposes. Whatever you spend getting your kitchen ‘paleo ready’ will return itself many times over. Not only in terms of your overall health, but also your energy levels, weight loss, and mental clarity. Below are some ways that you can invest in your paleo kitchen, and by doing so invest in your health.

Avoid Temptation by Purging Your Pantry

When you don’t have non-paleo food staring you in the face, it is harder to stumble on your paleo path. If the unhealthy foods you crave are not nearby, it is much easier to avoid eating them. So your first step to creating a paleo friendly kitchen is to purge your pantry, cleanse your cupboards and clean out your refrigerator.

Some of the things you will want to remove include grains, beans, dairy, flour, refined sugars, carbonated beverages and processed foods. You can donate these foods to a worthy cause, discard them, or have your non-paleo friends …
