Livin' the Paleo Life

Answered on August 19, 2014

Since going paleo, have you found a sense of contentment, purpose, or has going paleo been another source of anxiety in your life? For me, it's a mixture of everything depending on the time and the weather.... How do you all deal with the "highs" and "lows" of it?

I look at life much clearer as well. No big worries about day to day crap that doesn't mean anything. I was already pretty laid back, but now I don't have to try.

Also, when it comes to my job and career, I'm no longer laser-focused on just doing what it takes to get ahead. I'm not competing with anyone or worrying about anything other than what I do everyday. Hell, I've even thought of moving to Hawaii where my fiance is from... find work that will pay the bills, and live in paradise. That's a little extreme I know, but the point is I'm realizing what's important: family, friends, health, enjoying each day. I love getting up at 8 am on my own to cook, walk, mow the lawn... whatever!

It gives me a sense of comfort knowing that I know how to feed my body in order to feel good, and seeing my progress certainly helps. Then there are times when I stress out unnecessarily about eating times, macronutrients, and such. Eventually I just have to remind myself that I'm doing a good thing by eating real, whole foods and relaxing about it is much more healthy than getting it "right" all the time.

Going Paleo has helped me to cement beliefs that were always simmering below my consciousness. I had tried Atkins back in the day and it seemed much more in tune with the life that I imagined my ancestors had experienced, but it wasn't the full picuture. During the time that I discovered the concepts driving the whole Paleo lifestyle I was also becoming frustrated in my lack of influence within my field of work, which is natural resources (fisheries specifically). And I decided that the only way that I could influence change in our local resources, which I believe to be the first step in influencing a reversion to our old ways of eating as a people (Native Americans), would be to restore the resource my tribe depended on most (salmon). So now I am currently pursuing another degree in another field in order to work my way into a position of influence to help make the kinds of changes that will restore a traditional staple to the diets of the people I come from. Today I have a specific vision of the future for myself and my children and someday my grandchildren. The Paleo life=style serves as a constant reminder to what my family, my friends and my neighbors could be living like if they were free from the constraints of neo-lithic poisons.

I now know where and how I fit into Life & the Universe, no stress as it's just wasted energy, I just go with the flow of Life like floating on my back down a river letting the current take me along at it's own speed.

Paleo has been smooth sailing for me because I do the 80/20 Primal version. No cheats, but I eat some potatoes, white rice, beans and other marginal foods.

There have been some major stresses in my life, mainly dealing with governmental idiocy. Perhaps I have handled them better than I would have in the past. My mind is much clearer.
