I never thought for one minute that I would ever get back down to the weight I am today. Since the beginning of last year, I have lost 80 lbs. Fifty lbs. of that has been since October 23rd, 2012. Without my wife being involved and taking charge of this new healthier lifestyle, I would never be where I am today. I attribute the weight loss to a few different things, but mainly to what I have been eating. It was a simple plan I had in mind. And I wanted to keep it simple. Keep it tasting good. Keep it different and exciting and still look forward to each and every meal.
I won’t bore you with the details, I promise. I’ll just state the facts because if I can loose the weight, you can too. I started on October 23rd, 2012 with the first phase of the South Beach Diet. I strictly adhered to Phase 1 for the 2 weeks required. After that, I introduced several whole and natural foods into my diet. These foods included meat, fruit, vegetables, and a variety of nuts. I paid attention to avoiding dairy, grains, processed sugar, and fats. Shortly after the 4th week I realized I had adopted the Paleo Diet to my new lifestyle without even knowing a thing about it.
The concept behind the Paleo Diet is simple. Let’s eat what our Cave Man and Cave Woman ancestors ate. NON-PROCESSED FOODS! At this point in my healthier lifestyle, I realized I may have created a brand new diet (South Beach meets Paleo). It is so amazing that by cutting out most grains, processed sugar, and most fats, I am never hungry (I do on occasion still have some food items with grains, very low sugar or fat in them). The cravings for desserts and sweets are gone. I eat until I’m full, and at that point, I am always satisfied both physically and mentally. Oh, and I must mention that I haven’t had heartburn since October 23rd, 2012. How nice is that?
I’ve created several recipes using the concept of my new diet, or should I say lifestyle? Below is a very delicious recipe that is easy to make.
