We are completing week one of our transformation to this grain free, dairy free,Paleo like diet. We have some things to work on but all in all this was a fantastic week. Garrett and I remained almost 100% gluten and very close to grain free. Only a couple condiments threw us off the 100% in remaining gluten free and we had some gluten free beer one night which include rice (grains) but other than that we did great and REALLY enjoyed all our food. The kids are doing awesome. I need to mention that about two weeks before getting certified by Robb Wolf , CrossFit Nutriton and starting this way of eating….I took all vegetable oils and peanut butter out of their diet so they have had some large changes. No potato chips, baked frozen fries, corn chips, peanut butter crackers ect. All of this was always natural, organic, gluten free but I really felt the need to subtract these things out. I am seeing the benefits of this in Collin (age 7 with autism). His “belly” is not as bloated and he is appearing more focused. Whew!!!
I have dropped weight. I agree with Robb Wolf that you should throw out the scale and I am going to learn to use calipers to determine our body fat throughout the process, but I have jumped on the scale just to see what’s up! I feel great. I wake up everyday on my own shortly after 5am and I am not tired. I am not CrossFitting right now due to a shoulder cuff tear/problem AND plantar fasciitis (2 more reasons to start this way of eating) but I can’t wait to start again and see the results.
My Mom started eating this way about a week ago too. She dropped 6 lbs the first week. She works out 3 plus times a week with a trainer in her home town in South Carolina.
Here is her dinner from last night. It looks fabulous! Way to go Mom!
