Paleo Is Not Open to Interpretation

Mar 25, 2014 9 Comments by

Paleo is confusing.

It didn’t use to be. Once upon a time it was eat some meat and greens and don’t skimp on the avocado or nuts. Now it’s paleo-pesto and paleo-cookies and paleo-noodles.

The latest and greatest offenders continue to be paleo treats. From homespun goodies that your friend made … once, to businesses that ship all over the world, paleo treats are more confusing than calculous.

But since it’s paleo, it’s good for me, right?

Instead of a cookie that “almost” tastes like a cookie, just eat the real thing. Or better yet, nothing at all. It’s not like our body will be able to tell the difference between Nabisco sugar, and Paleo sugar. Sugar is sugar, no matter what package it comes in.

If paleo is puzzling, if you’re fat and not losing weight or weak and not getting strong, you’re doing it wrong.

Coach never said to eat paleo. Originally–specifically–he said to eat meat, nuts, seeds, vegetables, little starch and no sugar and that’s what we should do. He knew, that left open to interpretation, we’d have a million versions of the same thing.
