After reading this book on recommendation of DNF I am willing to give this diet/lifestyle plan a try. It took a few weeks of persuading the missus but I eventually beat her into submission with several medical facts that countered her argument 🙂
Over the last 2 weeks we have been sourcing fresh food from our local butchers, grocers, fish quay in a bid to steer us away from the mass produced foods sold by the supermarkets. We shop online at Tesco’s and have managed to source the remaining bits and bobs from there. The primal blueprint basically eliminates carbs from your diet, its similar to Paleo diet but less intense. We will be trying it out for a month, apparently it tales 3 weeks to reprogram your genes to start burning stored body fat, it’s all very complicated for a person who normally laughs at diet plans, but it boils down to the production of insulin. I wont bore you with the details, more info can be found here.
We have put together a weekly food plan which we will stick to for 4 weeks. We both have different goals, my goal is to increase energy levels and fitness, Leanne is wanting to lose a bit of weight and tone up. Both should be possible the primal Blueprint.
There PB contains 10 laws which you must follow, this shouldnt be a problem as I led quite a healthy lifestyle already, but avoiding poisonous things may prove to be a problem with myself, I have more vices than the average man.
On the fitness front I have been following the Simplefit plan for the last 2 weeks, and its working well, hopefully it will produce over a period of time. Leanne is going to be adopting the new PB Fitness plan which can be tailored to suit even a beginner.
It all starts Monday, we will survive, who knows !!
