7 Paleo Mistakes to Avoid


  1. Thinking Perfection or Nothing

It is always Progress not Perfection…always doing the very very best you can. Never allow a mistake to knock you out of the game. Just get up and start again.



  1. Skipping the Crucial 30 Day Elimination Time to Reset

    and Detoxify

Leaving out all grains, dairy, processed food and sugar for 30 days is needed to detoxify and reset your insulin response (and to begin resetting your Set Point of weight). Once you do this, the results will begin.



  1. Failing to Give This Time

This is a totally new way of life for most of us. It is NOT a diet, but a Lifestyle. “Faith and Patience inherit the promises.” Give yourself at least 120 days to test and learn this new lifestyle and you likely will never wish to go back. BTW, it takes 120 days to get a whole new generation of cells.



  1. Fear of Calories, Good Fats and the Scales

We have been trained wrong. All calories are NOT the same. “Calories in and calories out” is totally outdated thinking. All fats are NOT bad. Lack of Good Fats causes many problems including excess weight. Inches on the tape measure will tell the real truth. Muscle weighs more than fat.

  1. Thinking Perfect Food Quality (Organic, Grassfed Beef)

Just doing the best you  can will still work wonders.



  1. Still Selecting No or Low Fat Foods

These are most often filled with sugar (which turns to fat) and are processed foods versus the healthy, whole foods God created. Diet foods make most people fat in time.  Choose whole, fresh foods.



  1. Missing Balance of Protein, Carbohydrates and Fat. (Too

    Much Meat without the Vegetables and Fruit)

God created wonderful vegetables and fruits to give us delicious and healthy food to enjoy. Keep the vegetables in a ratio to the fruit about 3:1 and most nutritional experts suggest even more than this.

Enjoy, but Limit the bananas.

“For your first 30 days of Paleo, bring your “A” game, so your body can re-calibrate. Later strive to live an 85-15% Paleo lifestyle.” I suggest adding back one thing at a time to see how your body likes it. Members use your food diary to discover foods that are detrimental to you.
