If you’re tired of low energy and crash diets, “going paleo” is one of the best things you can do for your health, but you can only pull it off if you avoid the common mistakes people make along the way.
There are plenty of places to go wrong, but one mistake TOWERS above the rest.
If you’re doing this (a lot of people do without even knowing), you’re setting yourself up to fail. But if you can AVOID this mistake you’ll put yourself on the fast track to better health.
Are you making the most dangerous Paleo mistake people make?
Seeing it as a DIET instead of a LIFESTYLE.
When you start a diet, you go into it with a few expectations. It won’t be fun. You’ll be hungry all the time. And most importantly, the diet will END.
Paleo is much more than that. People who succeed with it are in it for the long haul. Maybe they want to lose weight or cure a health problem, but that isn’t the ONLY thing that drives them.
People who succeed with paleo understand it’s a new way to live. It doesn’t stop after a few months or once you reach a certain goal.
Why Seeing Paleo as a “Diet” Sets You up to Fail
When you’re dieting, it’s easy to stick to the program for a few weeks. That’s when your motivation is high, but it gets harder as the days go by. Strict diets are BORING; you end up eating the same things over and over. Until you go off the rails and binge on some pizza or ice cream.
After that, it’s easy to blame yourself for not being disciplined enough. Then you give up on the diet altogether. Sounds depressing, doesn’t it?
It doesn’t have to be. Not if you see “going paleo” as a lifestyle change.
Turning Paleo into a Healthy Lifestyle That Lasts
One thing is GUARANTEED when you go paleo: you’ll slip up sometimes.
That’s OK if you see paleo as your new lifestyle. Instead of beating yourself up, you can learn from your mistakes and make small adjustments moving forward.
Feeling hungry after your workouts? No problem. Try adding some starchy vegetables into your diet after you train.
Tired of getting off track when you eat lunch at work? No worries. Figure out a way to bring paleo leftovers from home.
These are the kinds of little tweaks you can make over time to maintain success. There’s no pressure to follow an insane diet; just gradual improvements that pay off with a happier, healthier life.
There’s nothing stopping you from “dipping your toes” into paleo either. You can ease into your new lifestyle at whatever pace you’re comfortable with.
