I've become increasingly concerned about the foods available in the market place. The number of unpronounceable ingredients in some food is overwhelming. Two years ago, my family took on the challenge of removing high fructose corn syrup but was that the solution or just a first step?
After having three kids, I rediscovered rowing as an excellent form of exercise. I was a coxswain in school and my love for rowing was renewed when I discovered a local indoor rowing facility. Toning my body and making strides on my weight loss goals was improving my fitness but was that the solution or just another step?
Having tried all kinds of diet programs over the years, I've become adept at counting calories and making healthy choices but I still wasn't satisfied. Then I learned about the Paleo Diet and the pieces started making sense. In our desire to add more science to the production and distribution of our food, we were actually removing much of the nutritional benefit. We aren't just growing food, we're manufacturing it with flavor enhancers, food coloring, and other chemicals to add to the shelf life. What our bodies really desire is fresh, wholesome food. That's exactly how our systems are designed to efficiently process nutrients for a healthy body.
I welcome you and applaud you for choosing to take a stand for a healthier body and healthier lifestyle. Join me on an adventure in paleo living and together we can reap the benefits!
