On the 18th of July, 2012, I wrote the below blog post on my personal blog. I have been following a non-strict Paleo diet since and have already seen some benefits. However, I find that there are not too many resources for Indians.
Our diets are incredibly non-paleo – roti, daals, naans and even the cooking oil we use are all non-paleo. Strangely, non-Indians believe our diet to be very paleo but that is sadly not the truth. This is my attempt at demystifying Paleo for the common Indian and making it easy for all of us!
Below is a record of the first time I decided to go the whole hog
Since the beginning of 2012, I have been harping about the Paleo Diet to everyone who is pretending to listen. I have had a few flirting experiences with the diet and the results have always been positive. I am convinced that if followed to the letter, this can bring about some pretty great changes to one’s body.
…and thus, starting last Monday, I have taken the plunge. Gone fully Paleo. Its a fascinating world out there, and I’ll do every thing to level-up my life. This just seems like a natural progression to my way of living.
If you want to know more about Paleo, here are some great links to get you started:
VERY FIRST THING – READ THE PRIMAL BLUEPRINT by MARK SISSON!! Order it from Flipkart here.
Free The Animal – Richard Nikoley is someone I love reading. He can get NSFW sometimes.
Perfect Health Diet – Some interesting thoughts on Paleo and the recipes are amazing
Some bonus links that are not strictly Paleo, but still speak about it occasionally:
Lean Gains – Super awesome blog. Talks of how its not important to eat every 2 hours. How you can eat only when you feel hungry and over time, your body will automagically tell you when you need the food or not. Totally worth following.
The Legacy Project – I have to admit, this blog does not speak at all about Paleo. BUT I HAVE TO TELL YOU ABOUT IT. This is a project that asks people above 80-90 years, what they would do if they were young again. What mistakes would they avoid. Not one interviewee has mentioned money. Such fascinating replies!
Now that I have sparked your curiosity enough (uses The Force) you want to know what the hell I will be eating on this diet of mine. So here goes; what better way than to show you an infographic, eh!
Or if flowcharts are your thing then, this will make you happy?
