Hi Robb –
I found you via reading Go Wild, and now I’m following your posts after reading the The Paleo Solution. Thank you. no, THANK YOU!
Today’s follow-up to the on-going “Paleo is too expensive” has me itching to share that as a self-supporting single mom with three school age kids, I am THRILLED to be heading toward a better life due to shifts made after reading your book.
I agree, folks who complain about this or that obstacle would find excuses for ANYthing. It was EASY to clean out the cupboards and give away to Food Bank. It’s been a delight to cut costs by not buying bread, granola, candy, cereal, rice, beans, etc etc. No, I can’t afford grass fed meats or organic product, but not eating “crap” seems like the bigger picture to focus on and be grateful for.
What sold me? Waking up ONE day after stopping grains/sugar and feeling different. It took a few more days to realize the usual routine of shuffling to the bathroom to put Visine in my red eyes then licking my cracked, dry lips wasn’t happening! No more red eyes, no more dryness. I don’t remember reading about it in your book, but add those to the list of “processed food consumption symptoms.”
What’s more? Prior to eating Paleo I would feel full after a meal with my stomach actually looking “full” – read Bloated. I thought that was Normal! Now, I feel satisfied after eating a meal, and my core remains tight and comfortable, never bloated! Gas? Gone. My kids? There’s a lot more even-tempered attitudes with two meals a day Paleo (they eat school lunches mon-fri). Sold.
Keep spreading the word – with joy,
