Paleo: my initial thoughts

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?
