After doing an entire 30 days of paleo, I naturally have a bunch of thoughts about this! Also – I did not go into this paleo challenge wanting to lose weight. That wasn’t my goal from the beginning. My goal from the beginning was to get a real understanding of food and what we put into our bodies on a daily basis and how I can refine and adjust my eating habits along with exercise. Naturally, when you go through something like this, eliminating sugar, dairy, and grains, you’ll likely lose weight, so the weight loss was an added bonus for me as I gained 10 pounds while writing the cookbook ;) I also want to add that if you think going into this challenge without changing a thing with activity levels will cause you to lose weight, you’re wrong. Sure, you could shed a few pounds but you’ll end up plateauing. It’s all about diet and exercise, not diet or exercise.
Alright…here we go with my giant recap!
