What is the one (paleo) thing that you wish you could do but are too afraid?

Yeah, I hated liver and forced myself to eat it once a week. Now I find myself craving it from time to time, though it's still not my favorite taste ever. And, yes, it does make me feel energetic. I did the same thing with sardines.

I don't quite view all fears as a problem because some are there to help us protect ourselves. But to push through or do things despite fear, I think that really shows one's mettle

stay with it and you will see a difference! I am no poo for about 6 months and it is definately for the better. I do a shampoo about every 5 weeks or so to get the product out but other than that, it is conditioner only! My hairdresser says she's never heard of such a thing and is a little put off by this but whatever. To each her own.

Thanks! I have always been enthusiastic about trying everything, going into things 200% and never judging a soul, etc. Realizing and then telling myself "I don't have to be perfect all the time" and then trusting myself and the decisions I make. To acknowledge that these were detrimental pieces in my life and it was time to stop being so utterly critical of myself was a big scary deal, nobody freely wants to admit that there are pieces of themselves that need to be adjusted, but I did EEP! and I'm happier for it :)

I saw this criticism of foot stools on the web..."Sitting with your feet elevated is a crude attempt to imitate squatting. It increases the constricting pressure of the toilet seat, since the body's weight is shifted to the rear. To compress the colon, you have to use the awkward posture pictured below on the left. You still need to hold your breath and push – which is not required when squatting correctly. Straining in this way is the cause of hemorrhoids, diverticulosis and pelvic floor prolapse."

Can you seriously not see how the original question, which did not include the word paleo, would not fit under the category of "paleo" hack? "What is the one thing that you wish you could do but are too afraid?" There's all kinds of interesting questions that are not paleo related and don't fit the goal of this site. "How many times can you fall in love?" "Do you have difficulty reconciling your career with your beliefs?" etc etc. As Patrik has said before, other sites with different rules are good too. No need to be a negative nancy because you disagree with the FAQ.

Learn when to let go of desparately tight conscious control, trust my own innate skills and intuition more often.

Listen to my body and the world around me instead of always second guessing and delaying my decisions/actions until I have "just a little bit more information".

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_UWv9F6iyU

At some point orthorexia needs to yield to acceptance that while the means to the end is arguably within my control, the end is not. The countless hours scouring nutrition and health blogs, continual research, hacking, tweaking, experimentation is ultimately rooted in the inability to accept the inevitable.

Fear is the mind killer. I fear nothing and constantly seek to push my personal paradigms right to the edge of the abyss. Most fears are self created and therefore easily dispelled. Paleo is about the truth and a lot of people fear that the most.

Letting go of this sugar addiction is killing me. The gluten, the carbs, the legumes, the seed oils, the nightshades, the coffee, the alcohol: easy. But I just can't let go of the sugar.

I'd also like to squat more often for the toilet, but I'm not sure how to rig up my bathroom, or do it like that at work.

I've been wanting to buy that contraption for a while, but shipping to the US makes it too expensive. It looks like Wozza's an Aussie, so the price isn't actually too terrible there. They sell plans for those who are handy as well.

Tips: Take yer pants off first. Lift the seat so you don't crack it. Practice at home first (mirror optional).

Eat raw liver.

Seriously, I've known several people who say it produces the most amazing sense of well-being. I already feel pretty well, but dang. A meat that gets you high? I'd like to experience that.

Yeah, I hated liver and forced myself to eat it once a week. Now I find myself craving it from time to time, though it's still not my favorite taste ever. And, yes, it does make me feel energetic. I did the same thing with sardines.

Stop counting calories.

My satiety cues are all shattered to heck, and while I'm always pleasantly sated on Paleo, the thought of not knowing where I stand terrifies me.

It's a crutch, and one I hope to let go of soon. :)

Quit my job and just focus on school. I dont need the money (my wife makes enough to support the both of us) but I've always worked. When I have down time I feel uncomfortable and on edge. I know it would help me SO MUCH to reduce my work volume to below the 55 hrs/week I work now, but I'm afraid to do it. Too many "What if's" to plan for I guess.

Your question's basic premise is that there is a fear, that we are afraid to do something which we would want to do, I digress.

..Its not about being afraid but about knowing the tremendous difference between perfection and totality, and remain 'total' and not necessarily perfect.

Perfection is a goal somewhere in the future, totality is an experience here, NOW. Totality is not a goal, it is the style of life.

If one can get into any act with one's whole heart, one is total. And totality brings wholeness and totality brings health and totality brings sanity.

Where is the room for fear?

For some reason, the idea of it excites me, and being the minimalist/resourceful-ist that I am, have a feeling I could do this well...but am too chicken-shit to...yeah...

For me it's letting go, I don't have to be perfect all the time, and just flat out trusting me and my instincts. I definitely think that this is a Paleo question as I for one am more in-tune with myself since that change. Examples of what I've done since Paleo that I would not have before: I agreed to make 200 desserts for a wedding in August. I entered my food into a contest. Quit the job that I loved instead of sticking it out due to that love and just eating the bad emotions daily. Nobody wants milk crates, food, and soft goods thrown at them or be verbally abused on a daily basis, right? I've never quit anything in my life. Approached someone in my life nervous and scared as hell, expressing my feelings and wants (badly of course), and having them accept what I offered.

I'm excited for what's next and I like this question :)

Thanks! I have always been enthusiastic about trying everything, going into things 200% and never judging a soul, etc. Realizing and then telling myself "I don't have to be perfect all the time" and then trusting myself and the decisions I make. To acknowledge that these were detrimental pieces in my life and it was time to stop being so utterly critical of myself was a big scary deal, nobody freely wants to admit that there are pieces of themselves that need to be adjusted, but I did EEP! and I'm happier for it :)

stay with it and you will see a difference! I am no poo for about 6 months and it is definately for the better. I do a shampoo about every 5 weeks or so to get the product out but other than that, it is conditioner only! My hairdresser says she's never heard of such a thing and is a little put off by this but whatever. To each her own.
