It all started with 23 and me. Initially, I did it bc this company was just getting started, and I enjoy analytics and health and ancestry. Well, once I got the info from this, a colleague of mine told me about DNA Fit. It basically looks at your genetics and how your body handles nutrition, fitness, and metabolism. I found out a lot about my own health! Based on my DNA, it said my body does best with a Paleo diet. So, I opted to do a mostly paleo diet starting in October 2016 — with an upcoming wedding in February 2017, I was on a mission.
I started ordering Trifecta Nutrition for quick and organic Paleo meals. I would eat these meals 5 days a week for lunch at work. One of the biggest things I noticed was that I was fuller longer and had much less cravings for sweets. From October to February, I lost 10 lbs and got lean. Of course, I was also doing Sweat (iphone app) by Kayla Itsines. This is a no-nonsense program that you can do anywhere and anytime. In the past, I’ve done almost all of the beachbody products: p90, p90x, p90x3, chalean xtreme, turbo jam, insanity, turbo fire, hammer and chisel — of all of these, I really highly recommend P90x3 — it’s a terrific program that will give you results if you put in the work. But what I found is that I would actually stick to the Sweat program much longer and have faster recovery with her program vs. P90X3.
So what have a discovered about myself as I’ve taken a more Paleo heavy diet? I have less cravings. I perform better physically and mentally. I actually feel like I’m eating more and staying fuller longer. And that (for me), is one thing I absolutely love! Overall, I feel less deprivation…and that makes me happy!
What are your thoughts? Anyone else have similar or different experiences with a Paleo diet?
