Paleo Side Effects: An Unexpected Bonus

In life it seems we each carry our own story.  These stories can define us, make us who we are.  And we hold onto these stories to excuse our lack, no matter what: my husband left me for another woman - I eat and therefore this has made me fat,  my mother abandonned me at birth - this means I am unloveable, I have red hair so life will be challenging - I'm sure you can find your own story and fill in the gaps.  And for some it can be a very lonely place..

We went primal almost two years ago.  At first it was about weight loss, food, exercise but somewhere down the line I became aware that this had become a lifestyle and there was no going back.  And with that came the realisation that my story had gone, I had stopped living my life from that place.  Every choice every decision made now comes from a much simpler place.  And that is for me, the wholly unexpected bonus of living a paleo life.

“Nothing is more destabilizing to the brain and nervous system than blood sugar surges (and food sensitivity reactions). Nothing is more stabilizing to the brain than natural dietary fat.” writes Nora Gedgaudas and this has been our abiding experience: life before and life after!

What have you found has changed eating a paleo diet?  We'd love to hear from you.
