Paleo Food Diary Day 5, The FINAL DAY!

12 Mar

Here is the final week day of my Paleo Food Diary. What a week of reflection! I have been on the Paleo Diet for three years and I must say, writing down what you eat definitely holds you accountable for what you are eating and how much. This has not only been a great exercise to show meal examples to others ( as intended), but it has been a valuable lesson on what I can improve upon on my diet.  I guess I can compare keeping a food diary to dead-lifting in CrossFit.  I learned how to perform a proper dead-lift years ago. I can also show you exactly what proper dead-lift form should look like. However, when I start dead-lifting heavy weight over and over in a workout, does my back start to round if I am not careful? Yes.  My point is, even though we “know” what we are doing, it is still important to re-evaluate our course from time to time and make sure we are on the right path. If you have been Paleo dieting for some time, I challenge you to keep a food log for a few days. You may find areas that need improvement. I know I did!  🙂
