The weight was flying off the first 3-4 weeks but not so much now. I was reading why in The Paleo Diet for Athletes book. In a nutshell, it was mostly water weight. Just as the book says, my loss has slowed but it’s steady now. It’s a good book, by the way. Most athletes (myself included) loaded up on sugars and carbs and hope for the best in a race. It’s just a wee bit more complicated than that and this book goes into detail about fueling and proper timing.
Re-reading the opening paragraph, I cringe when I see the word, “diet.” I’ll say it again: I eat. A lot. When I’m hungry, I eat. If I’m not hungry, I don’t eat. Simple, right? I have no plan to follow other than steering clear of processed foods, etc. Not to mention, eating whole foods leaves you full and satisfied after a meal. It really is that simple.
Let’s face it, the food industry is out to make a profit. They’ve figured out how to make highly processed, addictive foods that leave you wanting more and more. Have you looked at the cereal isle? Sugar coated everything! It’s genius on their part, not so good for our health and well-being though.
Thanks for reading! Have a GREAT day and don’t forget to drink water throughout the day (it does your body good).
