Experiment!

  With the Paleo challenge well under way, some of you might be wondering “What happened to Zoleo?” Zoleo hasn’t gone anywhere! In fact, as part of living a healthy lifestyle, it’s important to experiment with new ideas and paradigms, to see if they work for you (or not). This Paleo challenge is for us to experiment what happens when we don’t balance or measure at all, and eat strictly paleo foods. After 30 days, we’ll evaluate how we look, feel and perform. It’ll be interesting to see how it compares to Zoleo. Here’s what I ate yesterday (I’m stillContinue Reading >>

Raw Milk – Take a look!

I’m in the middle of a meeting so today will be a short one. Have you ever tried raw milk? There’s little mention about it in the mainstream, however the benefits are amazing.

Danger, danger! Step away from the scale

You have decided to take on a new lifestyle incorporating physical exercise and a healthy diet, partly because you enjoy this new lifestyle and partly because you want to see results.

We become obsessed with the scale and its reading and unknowingly make it our diet and exercise counselor. One pound down, hooray we are on the right path, one pound up, boo this plan isn’t working time to switch to a new plan.Continue Reading >>

Green Leafy Veggies – Nutritional Powerhouses

It was common for our paleo ancestors to eat up to six pounds of leaves per day. You can imagine them just walking along picking and eating leaves as they went. Can you imagine eating that much? Unfortunatley, most of us don’t eat the minimum USDA recommendation of 3 cups per day, yet leafy greens a jam packed with vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. Per about.com: “Dark green leafy vegetables are, calorie for calorie, perhaps the most concentrated source of nutrition of any food. They are a rich source of minerals (including iron, calcium, potassium, and magnesium) and vitamins, including vitaminsContinue Reading >>

Paleo Faux Pas

After a few days of reaping the benefits of a Paleo lifestyle I decided to splurge on a birthday lunch, thinking how bad can it be? I will eat in moderation. Day 4 breakfast was on point, lunch rolls around and as requested the family prepared me an Indian favorite: Chole Bhature (garbanzo bean and slightly fried bread) with Kheer (rice pudding) for dessert. I normally would have ignored my fullness triggers and eaten about 2 plates but this time I listened and ate in moderation but still managed to hit a stage of uncomfortable fullness. Yes it was deliciousContinue Reading >>
