The Beginner’s Guide to the Paleo Diet | Nerd Fitness

I don’t like keeping track of how much I’ve eaten, I don’t like obsessing over how many grams of a particular nutrient I’ve eaten, and I don’t like worrying that I ate too much/little and the end of the day. Not only do I hate counting calories, but I know that calories are really only half of the battle, as they’re not all created equal – 400 calories of Doritos do NOT affect your body in the same way as 400 calories of high-quality vegetables and chicken.

I switched to the Paleo diet 4 weeks ago and I’m loving it. I rarely get hungry between meals, don’t get cravings for shitty food, and I’m losing fat at a healthy pace. The diet also allows my body to function at a high level for CrossFit workouts. If you’re not sure what Paleo is all about, take a few minutes to read the post linked above.
