30 Day Paleo Challenge

At the time of writing this, it is the day before I will be starting a 30 day Paleo challenge with a friend.

We have both followed a strict paleo diet before, so we both know how amazing it makes us feel, but find it hard to get motivated to be strict all the time without having someone to do it with.

We don’t see each other that often, so we will be inspiring one another via Instagram pics to make sure we are still on track. (#ashandchloegopaleo)

Our ‘rules’ are: No grains, dairy, starchy carbs (ie potatoes), sugar, processed foods/oils, and alcohol is restricted to white spirits such as vodka or gin.

I am expecting the first week to be the hardest, while my body is craving energy spikes from carbohydrates or sugar, but once the first week is up I should hopefully start to feel the difference and it should get easier!

Both of us have a day in the month that we have an event where eating paleo will be near impossible, so we have clarified this from the beginning, and we have excused ourselves for this day! We could always do an extra day at the end to make up for it!

I will also be drinking homemade bone broth, and taking a couple of helpful supplements and probiotics to try and heal my gut as much as possible along the way.

Each day I will attempt to write a food diary, with notes on how I feel so I can look back on it later to motivate myself to do it again!

My goal is to have more energy, get rid of my anxiety, hopefully lose a little weight and generally feel better inside and out! It would be ideal if I could continue on with the lifestyle change, even if it’s to eat well 80-90% of the time. I also hope that by reading this, people will be inspired to take up the challenge too!

Wish me luck!

    If aldosterone levels are high, but renin is low,
    the patient may have primary hyperaldosteronism. A needle is then inserted into the
    chosen vein, where a syringe or airtight vial collects enough blood for
    the test.
