Paleo Fast Food aka as it comes

The longer I follow the Paleo lifestyle the more I come to realise that I can just eat the food as it is, no need to cook it. This is becoming more and more a feature of breakfast and lunch. Not only is it easy, it tastes great and I am getting all of the nutrients. It might not be for everyone's digestive system but it works for me.

Spinach, Carrot, Orange... simple delicious.

Day 150

Today I weigh 14 st 7 lbs (203 lbs) that is a 31 lb drop in weight and I have to say I feel pretty good about it. Several members of my friends and family have had a bunch of ills over the last few weeks, including norovirus and yet I have managed to stay well. I could just be lucky but I also think if you are fueling your body correctly it must be more efficient as it is not dealing with unnecessary toxins.

I have started improving my diet further by choosing vegetables that are claimed to be chemical/pesticide free (I say claim because I would never be so naive to believe I was being told the truth on food). It is more expensive but there are a number of tangible benefits, the main one being the taste. Tomatoes are particularly worth the money, mass produced Tomatoes just taste of nothing.

Anyway here is the comparison:

Day 1

Day 150

Looking at those photos I am in shock, to give it perspective my chest is approximately the same size (42') but my waist is about 4+' thinner. I am also functionally stronger and probably the best shape of my entire adult life.

Moving forward I plan to continue improvement to my diet and I am going to add more cardio to my exercise regime. Looking forward to the weather settling enough so I can go cycling which I will be able to because since going Paleo my bad right knee has healed!

Feeling good, feeling happy and living more simple.

For anyone considering trying Paleo... I absolutely recommend it.
