I’ve been asked by people about when to start a new diet plan, and I always tell people, “Why not now?” Sure, changing over to a diet like the Paleo Diet takes preparation, there’s no reason to put it off any longer than necessary to get rid of high-carb or high-sugar ingredients in your kitchen.
Putting it off can be practical. If you just went shopping and you have a week or two worth of food, there’s no reason to not eat it. Just go for it. Consider it a going away party. But short of that, you’d an begin eating right immediately. Sure, you will have to do some quick research on what to eat and what to avoid, but fortunately, Paleo is simple.
- Avoid anything with added-sugar
- Avoid grains
- Avoid beans
- Avoid dairy
- Avoid soy
- Avoid alcohol
You’ll be surprised how many foods you can find that comply with those simple rules. Yes, there will be many foods no longer on your menu, but forget about those. Concentrate on the foods you CAN eat, and you will find that you’re already eating most of those foods already. As a bonus, the sooner you start, the sooner your body begins recovering from its sugar addiction and the sooner you will start to get healthy and lose weight!
