  1. Enjoy eating paleo. Enjoy what you eat. If you are unhappy with what you are eating you are unlikely to continue to keep eating that way, and once the nutrition is gone, staying fit and healthy becomes much harder.
  2. Pre-cook food. Spend a few hours at the beginning of the week and cook big batches of food. This will allow you to minimise the amount of time that you have to spend cooking during the week.
  3. Cook more that you need. This is similar to the previous tip, the idea being that if you cook more than you need for one meal then you can eat it later, or the next day.
  4. Rather than cutting yourself off from all of those foods which you enjoy that aren’t 100% paleo friendly, simply eat smaller amounts and be moderate.
  5. Do not keep junk/unhealthy food that you know you shouldn’t eat, in the house. For most people, if it is in the house they will eventually eat it.
  6. Do not run out of food. This is horrible. Do not let it happen to you.
  7. Try planning out your meals for a week. This comes easily to type one personalities, for the rest of us it can be a nuisance. Though this has the benefit of ensuring you know what you need in the house for the week, and eliminates that time wasting period during which you try and figure out what you should cook for dinner.
  8. Keep a handy meal replacement shake/can of tuna in your car/office/desk/bag for a paleo friendly snack in case plans change.
  9. Learn to use spices; this will do wonders for you and will offer variety and different flavors to your meals.
  10. Eat lots of vegetables; try and eat a good variety with many different colours.

    Some great tips.

    During February, I’ve been following an e-book i found online called ‘The 28 Day Natural Eating Plan’ written by Sydney based personal trainer Joe Bonington. It’s centered around the principles of the Paleo Diet and so far I’ve found it to be a fantastic starting point to changing my eating habits and getting started with the Paleo eating. It contains the right balance of information and guidance without being too time consuming.

    I feel alot more energiesed and would recommend the Paleo diet to all my family and friends.

    #6 is a huge one; I’ve noticed that eating Paleo is easy until I run out of food. If I’m hungry, I’m much more likely to eat something bad than drive to the grocery stores, come home, and prepare a meal.

    These are some good tips. The hardest thing for me about Paleo eating is finding things to eat when I’m on the go. Pre-cooking definitely helps.

    ORGANIC BABY FOOD….is another quick fix for Paleo Eaters….especially for busy ones…
    It comes in those new type containers…that look like Runners Food Pouches…Actually, Certain brands of it contain only the fruits and vegetables …and because they come in those pouches, they are easy to store, even in your car or purse…..and to be honest, you will feel better than if you eat anything else……IF you can get past the fact that this food is marketed as BABY FOOD. You can also get it more affordably than runners food…..Most brands can be purchased for around $1.00 each pouch for a
    3 oz or 4 oz serving…on sale….and sometimes even less…..whereas the Runners pouches will cost about $3-$4 each pouch…though a little more and maybe added vitamins….not hardly worth the difference in cost….since the purpose is not to sustain you while running a marathon….but only to get you past the hunger mode until you can prepare a quality Paleo Meal….or to give you quality energy for a workout……GIVE IT A TRY…..YOU MAY BE IMPRESSED……AND IT CAN BE STOR3ED AS EMERGENCY FOOD TOO….FOR YOU AND ANY ONE IN YOUR FAMILY!
