Okay, I've decided to eat like a caveman. No seriously, I am. I'm going to start the Paleo diet when I move home to VA next week. More on the moving later, right now it's about the diet.
Earlier today I was thumbing thru my last free installment of People Magazine and I read that Scarlett Johansson had been on the Paleo diet. I don't know about you but ScarJo looks pretty damned amazing. I was dubious at first. I asked my Facebook friends about it. No one really knew anything about it but they were curious, so I took to Google for some cold hard facts.
I found out that diet is a "back to nature" thing where you only eat what would have been available to a cave man. Normally, I wouldn't keep reading after seeing "diet" and "caveman" used in same sentence but I was more curious than disturbed. I read on. I saw the words, "all you can eat" several times. This caught my eye. All I can eat? Really? This gets better and better!
The website said I could have my fill of any fruit, any nut, any fish, and any lean meat. The only restriction was on the types of vegetables I could have. It seems that some veggies are a product of the modern agriculture age and are not allowed. Also, no sugars and no grains. No dairy either. All this is fine with me so far.
As long as I can still have my morning coffee, no one will get hurt or go to jail.
So, here we are. I am going to try this for 30 days and blog about how I feel and look. Starting next week in Virginia, I will be living the Paleo life.
Just don't call me Captain Caveman.
