Be nice

Yes, be nice. Be nice to yourself, and your body. If you’ve decided to give this a shot, go ahead and weigh yourself.

And then put the scale away. Preferably to Goodwill, but if you’re not quite ready for that, then the tippy top shelf of your closet.

Paleo/Primal/Cave person eating is not a weight loss plan. It’s a gut health plan, and you want to heal yourself. Weight loss might come, and it might not. But in order for it to work, you have to step away from the scale, and while you’re at it, you should be stepping away from the critical mirror. You know, the one that makes you squint at yourself and pinch yourself here or there and otherwise make you miserable.

You shouldn’t be miserable. Life is ever so short, and you want to be happy and healthy as long as you’re able.

So, let’s start slowly. Decide to cut wheat, corn, rice, and potatoes. Cut legumes (they give everybody tummy trauma anyway) and cut soy. Ditch the scale.

And just breathe.
