The barefoot running post I wrote the other day has got me thinking.
A reader (who I happen to know is, like me, a ‘modern’ Paleo kinda person) jokingly commented that if one has the mentality that we need to mimic what our ancestors did to the fullest, then we should not actually be using computers, driving cars or doing many of the things we do on a daily basis.
An extreme and facetious comment, but not actually that far off, for some.
Nothing wrong with that approach, at all, to be clear, however, it’s simply not the way I go about it.
I eat the way my body was meant to eat (hello, Paleo), but I am far from a cavewoman.
Similarly, I’m an athlete, but I remain a ‘girl’. What has that got to do with it?
Well, this is precisely what I wanted to address with my new book, Paleoista, Gain Energy, Get Lean and Feel Fabulous with the Diet You Were Born to Eat, and not just for the women out there.
If you’re interested in eating in such a manner that will lead you straight to optimal health, but have previously been a bit daunted because you don’t want to haul logs as your workout, nor do you want to hunt and gather your own food from the wild, you can rest assured that you can absolutely have the best of both worlds.
It’s all about the balance.
Read the book for more, tune in to the radio spots and podcasts I’m doing as part of the PR and get the message out in your community that ‘present-day’ Paleo is an completely viable way to approach the lifestyle!
