How are you feeling?

Q: I’m on my first week of paleo and I feel hungry, tired, have a headache, and lethargic. I feel weak and my WODs seem slow. Is this normal? A: Yes, this is totally normal. Sugar is a drug and you are now going through withdrawal. For most, it can take a week or more for your body to make the transition to Paleo and start using fat more efficiently as the primary energy source for daily living. You might feel really hungry the first week or two. Your body is adjusting to the reduced carbohydrate intake. Make sure that you are eating until you are full. Keep nuts (unsalted) around in case of a hunger attack. Remember this is only for 30 days…you can do anything for 30 days…right?! PLOD (Paleo Link of the Day) P.S. Green Beens are OK!]]>
