Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know that so many people hate that term “clean eating.” Bite me and my clean food.
I’m using this challenge as an excuse to get off my Splenda-eating behind and go Paleo for a month.
You see, I’ve transitioned into Paleo eating as I’ve gone more and more low-carb. I started out by eating way more fat than I ever did (up to 40-50% of my daily calories) and then I started listening to Paleo podcasts and loving the messages they were sending. It’s about quality and caring for your body enough to pay attention to what you’re putting into it. It’s not about weight!!! In fact, it’s about releasing that number and reframing my paradigm of what’s important (from a Balanced Bites podcast)
- How do I feel?
- How is my training?
- (many more questions)
- How do I look?
However, I haven’t been able to fully kick my artificial sweetener habit and I’m not comfortable with the amount I’m leaning on that stevia, etc. to get me to drink water (Crystal light junkie) and I’m pretty sure it’s affecting my raging sweet tooth.
So, for August, I’m Paleo and sugar-free.
Time to go make some bone broth.
I’m about to become a bigger hippy than I already am.
