I’ve always been one of those people that kinda wants to lead a healthy lifestyle, but kinda loves her snacks and pizza too. When I was younger, I tried leading a healthy lifestyle, but snacks and fast foods always got the better of me.
To be honest with you, I love fries, pizza, chips and every other snack so much that they often replaced my meals. And I won’t look for excuses, it wasn’t because I didn’t have the time to cook healthy meals.
I was just bored of bland salads and unseasoned meats that were called “the healthy foods” and would always pick a tasty pizza over them. Plus, I’m terrible at cooking so preparing complex meals was a challenge for me, and fast food delivery was…delivery.
Okay, okay, I was lazy. I admit it. But I really did try!
I also used to read a lot about healthy diets and healthy lifestyles regularly, but I gave up and stopped doing that too. But, my body doesn’t stay young forever. And I learned that the hard way. Once I turned 30, everything body-related started going downhill for me.
While I didn’t put much weight on, I began to see the results of my unhealthy way of eating. I started getting tons of cellulite, stretch marks and loose skin all over my body. Because my skin was looking dim and gloomy, I looked older than my age, so I started dressing like a middle-aged woman to cover the loose skin on my arms and the cellulite on my legs.
And I certainly didn’t feel middle aged! But the reality was such…I really looked like that.
I’m a very self-conscious woman and this really started to bother me. I was analyzing my body in the mirror every day to the point that I lose every confidence in it. I looked around me and saw all my friends looking so good and healthy, going out to clubs and pools, and there I was…grumpy ol’ me, all covered up.
As time passed, I lost confidence to the point I felt…less. I don’t know how else to explain it.
Everyone started getting worried about me. The bubbly person they knew that always made jokes about everything, that was fun, outgoing, and talked to everyone was now withdrawn and quiet. They kept asking me what was wrong, did anything happen, but I kept lying to them that everything was okay, when it was clearly not.
I had one of my closest friends come up to me and ask me directly…”Is it because of your body? Do you think you don’t look pretty?” This was the last straw, the drop that spilled the glass. I broke down and sat down with her to tell her everything that was going on and she helped me tell everyone else.
The amount of support I received from my friends was overwhelming. They all tried different ways to help me, whether by talking or by giving me recommendations on how I can improve my life. One of them sent me a link to a Facebook group about some Paleohack diet.
It had quite a few members in it, so I started reading what they all had to say about it. The feedback about it was very positive I must say. Everyone had amazing results in a short period of time, and not just physical as in, losing weight, but also health improvements.
Many told their stories about how they managed to cure conditions such as diabetes, weak muscles and chronic fatigue, which are very difficult to overcome.
There was one pinned post about a cookbook made according to the diet, so I opened that link. As I read more and more about the cookbook, I realized it was the right choice for me and I decided to order it. I made a promise to myself that I will commit myself to it and change my life completely.
Turns out that it was one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life.
