The base of my food pyramid: Lean protein
I highly recommend a great book called “The Slight Edge.” The author talks about the compounding effects of habits: Doing things that are easy to do but also easy not to do. While it’s great to eat Paleo for a four or six week challenge it’s your daily habits that will determine your health and wellness. Being healthy isn’t a big push that gets done in a couple of weeks or even months. Wellness is a lifelong journey. It’s like money in the bank. It grows slowly at first, then you pick up some momentum, and then before you know it you’re Warren Buffett. Our problem is we’re more like Warren’s little brother , Warren “AllYouCanEat” Buffet. Rather than plan on a big push for the Holidays why not just focus on a few small habits: Anything bad you’re going to eat cut the serving size in half. Drink mostly water. Treat all bread like cake…eat a small serving only if you must. Last of all, follow a rule the Okinawans are famous for called “Hara Hachi Bu.” Instead of stuffing yourself eat every meal to 80% full and then stop. January will be here before you know it and your resolutions could be about getting muscle-ups rather than shedding pounds. Do it.
