I have a couple of resolutions this year. I think one of the most important is that I want to recommit to the Paleo lifestyle CJ and I followed for the year we lived in Denver, CO.

While we were living in Denver, I worked at Barnes and Noble. One day when he came in to pick me up, CJ was scoping out the resolutions section and noticed The Paleo Solution by Robb Wolf. CJ bought the book, was an instant believer, and talked me into trying it out.

Wolf encourages a 30 day trial to detox the body. Within the first week alone however, CJ lost ten pounds. This is not a diet per say, it is a lifestyle change. I have never felt healthier or more energetic than while we were following this way of eating. For us, it was not about losing weight, it was about feeling better overall and leading a healthy life.

It was very easy to fall out of this way of eating while staying with my grandparents. I love my grandmother with all my heart, but she is a definite “food pusher.” When we finally get into our house, which is supposed to happen the middle of this month, we both have said that we are once more going to be Paleo. I CANNOT wait.
