Paleo/Primal

Anyone else with this lifestyle?

Seriously changed my life for the better drastically. No longer depressed and anxious like I was (it was severe) I feel HAPPY for the first time in years and years. My blood pressure has regulated, my pulse is normal. I feel fantastic AND lost 50 lbs.

    Paleo/Primal isn't right for everyone.  The most important thing I've gotten out of it is being aware of how different foods affect my body.  There are a number of things I've stopped eating not so much because the paleo books say not to eat them but because I don't like what happens when I do eat them.  :-)

    This made my head hurt....but i have heard so many good things about it.  Just not something I could personally do.

    I love the hunting convo! My husband and I have been throwing around the idea of buying bows and learning to bow hunt. We just got a chest freezer that we're excited to fill with meat.

    Don't go all out with your first set of equipment.  :-)  A Hoyt costs a $1000 or more up front but really, despite all the advertising, is not substantially different from a $300 Bear set up.  Also, test yourself to know if you're right or left EYE dominant first.  The first bow I got was a right hand bow but because I'm left eye dominant I had trouble sighting properly.  Switching to a left hand bow, I can shoot accurately much more consistently.

    I was thinking the same thing...I kind of tried a while back but then decided against it!

    Have you done it?  They say the first week or so is brutal, but maybe if I significantly reduce my sugar intake prior to starting, I won't kill anyone?  ;)

    Oh yes! A Whole30 will do wonders for you!!

    I'm reading "It Starts With Food" right now, which I believe promotes a modified Paleo.  I'm seriously considering it...

    Thanks for the advice! I know for sure my left eye sees a lot better, so that would make is dominant, right? Hubby has been watching this guy on youtube a lot lately that does videos about bows and hunting and now he wants to make his own bow, lol. I'm excited to try, I've wanted to be able to say that I helped bring an animal down that feeds my family. Grrr, lol!!!
