Paleo mindset – have you got it? Are you always dreaming of foods that are not paleo? I did when I first started, but I don’t anymore. Why? Well I am not sure but I have a couple of theories about why. If you are having problems thinking about non paleo foods then perhaps you should try a couple of my tricks.
While I may not agree completely with everything in the video, the basic figures cannot be ignored. So it is not just a case of removing all thoughts of non paleo foods from your mind. There are other things you can do to help yourself. I personally love dark and bitter chocolate, in fact I prefer it to the lower quality cocoa types. So while it is not perfectly paleo I try to think of dark chocolate as a non paleo or naughty food. This helps me a great deal when dealing with the thoughts of foods I used to eat before turning to paleo.
So the first thing I recommend is to think about the paleo foods you really enjoy eating. Start your paleo mindset with a list of the paleo foods you really enjoy. Now when your mind wanders to foods you should not be eating think of those paleo foods that you do like and enjoy eating.
When the feeling of non paleo foods gets too strong then follow the advice in the video. If you are eating 5 times a day (three meals and two snacks) then you could allow yourself at least one non paleo snack as long as you don’t go too far off the paleo scale. If you are always thinking of non paleo foods and cannot think of any paleo foods you do like, then perhaps you should be considering if you are eating the correct foods for your body type. While I believe paleo is the correct way to go and my body enjoys it it may not be right for you.
