5 Tips to Help You Stay Paleo During the Holidays

December 21st, 2016 | Living, resources

Is this your first holiday season since going Paleo?

Whether you’re participating in our 30-Day Challenge or recently adapted to the Paleo Diet – it can be very difficult to adhere to your new lifestyle during the ‘most wonderful time of the year.

December seems to be full of company parties and family get-togethers that are centered around food and drinks. Our culture encourages us to be ‘Merry!‘ and that usually translates into too much sugar and processed ingredients, and not enough sleep or exercise.

If you’re feeling this Season’s struggle and need some guidance to get through the Holiday guilt-free, check out these 5 tips to help YOU stay Paleo:

  1. Create Awareness
    It’s hard for others to be respectful of your new way of eating if they don’t know about it – So tell them! Take the time to talk to your family, friends and co-workers about your new journey with food and how amazing you feel. Let them know how it has improved your life and how important it is to you to continue to live this way. Ask them for their support and who knows – they might end up joining you and trying Paleo for themselves!
  2. Share Dishes
    Pot-luck parties are the perfect opportunity to introduce other people to the Paleo Diet. Not only will this guarantee you’ll have something to eat at the event, you can expose others to the delicious (and healthy!) foods that you get to eat every day. It’s also a great opportunity to have some fun in the kitchen and take the extra time to prepare a more elaborate dish you wouldn’t usually have time for.
  3. Make Mocktails
    The hardest part about staying Paleo during the holiday seems to be the endless flowing river of libations. Overdoing it on the booze can lead to overeating due to loss of self-control and a little thing called a hangover. Too much alcohol over a longer period of time (i.e. the whole Season) can also lead to weight gain. It’s basically completely counterproductive to everything you’re trying to achieve! If you absolutely want something to sip on during a gathering, try making a ‘mocktail‘ – a cocktail without the liquor. Try experimenting with different herbs, fruits and flavors! My personal favorite is muddled cranberries, mint and club soda – YUM!
  4. Plan Ahead
    Sometimes you just can’t resist Grandma’s non-Paleo Pumpkin pie or your nephews sugar cookies complete with a sweet smile – and that’s OK! You don’t need to punish yourself for veering off the path. But eating too many pieces of pie and too many cookies can set you back huge leaps in your progress. I like to suggest planning ‘Treat Days‘ – specific parties or events that you know for certain you will be indulging. Schedule it and plan accordingly. Do something physical that day to get your body moving and your blood flowing. Hydrate with a lot of water and eat Paleo like you would any other day. Also keep in mind – there are a TON of Paleo-friendly treats that are free of gluten, dairy and processed ingredients. And when the time comes for your treat – Enjoy it! Look at it, smell it and savor every bite.
  5. Pay Attention
    When something is highly palatable (very pleasant to taste) like sugar and other Wintery treats, we tend to have an overwhelming desire to overeat. Sugar sends a signal to our brains to release serotonin (the calming hormone) and dopamine (the reward chemical), which makes us feel happy, excited, and, well, pleased. However, this feeling is short-lived, as our levels come crashing back down once we stop eating. It’s extremely important when indulging in these ‘pleasure foods‘ to pay attention to how you feel. Does your third or fourth bite taste as good as the first one? Are you still eating because you’re hungry and you actually want the food? OR do you feel like you already ‘blew it’ so you might as well finish it? Check in with how you’re feeling emotionally, mentally and physically – you could very well end up eating less than you anticipated!

No matter how you choose to spend your holiday, make sure you continue to take care of yourself by getting lots of sleep, hydrating and exercising. This wonderful time only comes once a year – make the most of it!

Obesogens… Obese-o-what?

October 19th, 2015 | Eating, Living

 

Obesogens …Obese-o-what?

Endocrine disruptors, also known as “OBESOGENS”, are lurking all around us and may be a key factor in making America FAT and SICK.  As you may realize, obesity is an epidemic and chronic diseases, such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes continue to escalate.

So…what role do obesogens play?

Obesogens are environmental toxins found in food, water, insecticides, plastics, cleaning products, cosmetics, etc. that negatively affect metabolism and may predispose some to weight gain. They mimic our own hormones and confuse or disrupt natural hormone production.

5 Hidden Causes That Could Be Making You Fat: Part 1

September 28th, 2015 | Healthcare, Living, Practical Living

 

If you are having trouble shedding those extra pounds and the scale just won’t budge….I recommend turning your focus towards these 5 often overlooked factors that could be secretly sabotaging your weight loss goals.

Yes…diet and exercise are key components in losing weight, having a rockin’ body and feeling awesome. But…there is much more to the equation that people don’t realize.  Many people dial in their nutrition using a Paleo, whole-food approach and lose tons of weight, and others lose some weight…but not as much as they hoped for. And for those people…there are likely other factors holding you back.

This may be just the information you need to squeeze into that stunning, black dress you’ve been avoiding because it’s a little too snug and exposes your lumps, bumps and rolls OR give you the confidence to strut your stuff in that sexy bikini you bought as an incentive to lose weight (and is currently buried in the bottom of your underwear drawer).

Wouldn’t that be awesome!

What’s even more awesome is that all these factors…if addressed and improved upon…not only help with weight loss, but also help with improved overall health, well-being and disease prevention!!

5 Hidden Causes That Could Be Making You Fat:

1) Low Vitamin D Levels

2) Poor Gut Health

3) Obesogens…Obese-o-what?

4) GMO…OMG!

5) Stress: The Muffin Top Monster

We are going to start this week looking at how Low Vitamin D Levels may be associated with weight gain and will cover the rest of the 4 in upcoming posts.

30 Day Challenge

Fred Testimonial

October 8th, 2017 | Testimonials

My name is Fred Talmadge and I am 52 years old and I live in Seattle, WA

What an interesting and informative 30 days that was! I feel like the Paleo Secret 30-Day Challenge was a success for me. Here is a review of my ‘WHY’ statement that I established at the beginning of the challenge:

I am taking on this 30-day challenge because I want:

 

– Stop feeling that internal pain every morning
– To look and feel better about myself
– I want to be physically and mentally stronger for myself and my family
– To prove my critics wrong
– To feel ‘normal’ again
– To gain more confidence

 

Before the challenge I would wake up every morning feeling pain inside my body. Usually it manifested itself around my mid-section. I also had this sciatica condition where pain would shoot down the back of my right leg. It was really uncomfortable. I would start my day vaping cannabis just to ease the pain during the day (Cannabis is legal in Seattle). On day #6, I woke up and the pain was gone. I didn’t have the pain in my midsection anymore. The sciatica pain was subsiding. Later in the challenge, the sciatica pain disappeared altogether. Plus I stopped using Cannabis to treat the pain.

For fitness I started walking again. I took Chad’s advice on one of his videos about walking your dog. My pet Chihuahua and I would walk the neighborhood about four times a week. Usually we traveled 2 to 2.5 miles per walk. There is a nice hill to climb during the walk, which got less challenging every day. One time Zarya (my chihuahua) and I walked 3 miles!

My before and after pictures did not show much change. However, I started the challenge at 248 pounds and I ended the challenge at 238 pounds. I feel really great about losing that weight.

For October, I am doing the challenge again. For the fitness part, I am changing to 1 to 2 mile walks five times a week. When I get home from the walk I will be trying out the Flat Belly Flow program. My goal is to lose another ten pounds in October. My overall goal is to get my weight down to 170 pounds. Maybe I can reach 165.. I feel that will take a year to do but now I have all this newfound knowledge. I am getting to know how my body reacts to food and exercise. I think I finally found a method to achieve this. Plus I am learning how to cook healthy meals which is a lot of fun too. Plus I am saving money in that we are not going out to eat as often during the month.

I want to thank Chad and Brenda for their website and their helpful advice over the past 30 days.  Everything was so helpful to me and I am thankful for how you both approach this. I wasn’t overwhelmed in beginning this new phase of my life.

 

Thanks again,
Fred Talmadge

30 Day Challenge

Donna Testimonial

October 7th, 2017 | Testimonials

Dear Dr. Chad and Brenda,

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
My name is Donna McIntosh and I’m 64 years old from Cumming, Georgia

Before the 30-Day Challenge, I had hip surgery on my left hip and pain in my right hip. I anticipated having to have surgery on that hip as well. The pain I felt in both hips, even after surgery was so bad that I was having a hard time sleeping and working.

I would cry in the evening after work (I’m a swim school owner/instructor). The pain was worse at night, but never went away. I have had this pain for years. I had done physical therapy, steroid shots, pain management, and surgery. I did not look forward to more surgery as it did not relieve the pain. Because of the pain, exercising had been nil – even swimming hurt.

So when I read about the Paleo Secret 30-Day Challenge and its benefits, I thought I would give it a try. I decided that I was all in. I was committed. I had one day that I would say that I cheated.  My daughter is moving to Minneapolis, and we had a special dinner.  I had a small piece of cake, but everything else was strictly Paleo. Other than that day, I did not cheat at all.

I also did the 3-Minute flow program. I was actually afraid to start. After two-weeks I noticed that the pain in my hips was almost gone. I have had no pain at all in my hips since Day 18. I realized that I felt rested for the first time in years. I only lost 5 lbs., but I’m OK with that because I feel great. Today I have started a new exercise regimen. I expect over the next few weeks that I will begin to see greater weight loss.

I am a Paleo Secret believer. The daily emails were critical – just what I needed to stay motivated. You guys have changed my life. I sit here now with tears in my eyes as I think of how I felt on Day 1 and how I feel today on Day 30. I look forward to the next 30 days. I will keep you posted on my weight loss going forward.

 

Thank you so much,
Donna McIntosh

Dear Brenda and Chad,

Due your daily emails, recipe suggestions and detailed explanations completing the challenge was easier than expected! I must admit it did require spending more time planning, more time in the kitchen and more money in the grocery store. However, the positives definitely outweighed the negatives. You were right when you said “you have eaten this way, just not for thirty days straight”.

Within the 30 days, I didn’t have sugar, grains, dairy (besides eggs) or alcohol (with the exception of one glass of red wine on my husband’s birthday and on the day of my daughter’s engagement).  And I didn’t miss it at all!

  • I was never hungry when I didn’t miss a meal;
  • Felt more satisfied after each meal;
  • Did not crave sweets or snacks at any time of day, especially at night when I often snacked;
  • Did not have an energy crash in the late afternoon as I often did;
  • Lost 4-5 pounds;
  • Lost fat around my waist, stomach and back where I needed it most. My clothes fit more comfortably;
  • Ate foods I’ve never eaten before including bok choy, swiss chard, parsnips, and shallots;
  • Learned to make bullet proof coffee (could never drink coffee without cream and sugar or honey)

My husband also benefited from my effort since he ate the food I prepared and didn’t eat some food that he normally ate on a regular basis that I thought was healthy enough, like his daily morning yogurt.

I’ve always been an active person. I thought I could eat what I wanted because I was going to burn it off. This worked for most of my life from a weight perspective. My last employment was managing a fitness club where I worked out using weights at least 3-4 times a week. My weight has been a steady 127-132 lbs. for 30 years. However, upon leaving the gym (the owners decided to close) I was also diagnosed with Sjogren’s syndrome after a series of seemingly unrelated issues. After a couple of years, it became evident that the incidents were connected. I refuse to label myself as someone who suffers from an autoimmune disease. The conventional doctors say there is no cure. It’s clear to me that the food choices I’ve made have lead me to where I am today. I would like to try to feel better and to improve my health by changing how I view food.

I haven’t lifted weights in over a year (although my weight was still 131) my waistline and belly began to expand. I’m a 51-year old mother of two from Massachusetts and continue to walk, run and exercise, but not with the same intensity, enthusiasm and commitment. After the 30-Day Challenge I lost only 4-5 pounds. More importantly, I lost inches and feel much lighter.

In addition, I’ve suffered from anxiety and depression for as long as I can remember. I decided to take medication when my daughter and son entered High School so that we could all endure the teenage years without me adversely impacting their experiences. My only regret is that I didn’t learn to cook this way sooner so that they could have benefited from the example. My daughter graduates college in May 2018 and my son in May 2020. They’ll be thirty years ahead of me if they can embrace better nutritional practices early on, so I intend to provide the kitchen basics when they move out of the dorm and into their own homes.

Thank you, Chad and Brenda, for presenting the 30-day challenge in a way that was easy to follow and execute. I looked forward to the daily email and seeing the inbox recipe of the day. There are a few recipes I look forward to making again! Also, Chad’s weekly recipes helped to demonstrate how to prepare meals intended to be consumed in more than one day. We always eat leftovers in our house so it’s great to have food to eat at another meal or even in between if necessary.

One important thing I learned is that all fats and oils are not equal. I’ve always used butter and olive oil, just not the right kind! I’m now buying the healthier versions, and have added coconut oil to the mix. I also plan to minimize carbs and sweets forever!

Thanks again for your guidance. I really appreciate it!

30 Day Challenge

Judy Testimonial

September 20th, 2017 | Testimonials

 

To the other Paleo neophytes:

I was looking for a way to lose weight only. Luckily I had no other stomach issues.

The reason for my weight gain was this: 20 years ago, a back surgery left me a paraplegic. I have the use of my arms, but I cannot walk.  For at least 15 years, I was a swimmer and used an arm bike, so I stayed the same size. Then I was told that my shoulders were so arthritic that I could no longer swim or use an arm bike.

Of course, I began to gain weight because I now could only do stretches and some strengthening exercises. But two years ago, my shoulders got much worse and I began to lose strength and gain more weight. In May of this year, I had to buy six size16 shirts to get by until I could get back in the closet full of size 14 shirts that I wore for many years.

Paleo was the lifestyle I chose as the healthiest while the hope of losing weight was realistic! I had a hard time starting because I had to convince my husband that the meals were not too different from those we were used eating.  We ate protein and vegetables but added a starch.  We did not have junk food in the house anyway.  So I have now just completed the 30 days.

I was at first concerned that I had no way to weigh myself. And looking in the mirror, I didn’t see much difference.  However, when I thought to put on a size 14 shirt, I rejoiced!! Although I need to lose more weight, I have made real progress.  I can actually wear some of the size 14 shirts and I feel sure that I will be able to wear all of them in another 30 days!!

I never felt hungry in my first 30 days. And I never felt cravings! I ate almond butter for a treat and continued to nibble on 85% chocolate!

I will continue as a Paleo enthusiast and encourage other first timers to do the same!! ☺

I have just completed my 30-Day Challenge. It was very inspiring.

My name is Pam Barclay, I am 49 years old from Texas and at that time in life when weight doesn’t just drop off like it used to. So I really needed a boost to get started.

I worked very hard to make the many changes in diet and your daily messages were helpful. I was able to drop 9 lbs. in 30 days. I am hopeful to continue losing weight as I plan to continue with these lifestyle changes.

When I first started out, I really did not think I would like any of the foods. But really, I like most of the choices I have found!  I did not really find a big jump in my grocery bill, as you were right, not purchasing some of the “junk” food snacks makes a difference. I can feel my intestinal tract is more in balance and after the first week it felt pretty good. The first week was very challenging as I was very much addicted to soda and sugars.

I am trying to also incorporate Yoga, which I believe is a great adjunct to the dietary changes.

Thanks for all the tips – they were helpful!

Brenda and Chad,

I just want to say… THANK YOU!!!

I have attempted to get healthier on many occasions over the years, but inevitably fell back into my old, unhealthy habits. After finding your program, I have been able to embark on what I consider to be a PERMANENT life change.

I am 60 years old, living in Eastern North Carolina. During the 30-Day Challenge, I have lost 8 pounds and a lot of inflammation. I feel so much better, and no longer have that insatiable, “eat the wallpaper off the walls” hunger that I invariably had previously. As a matter of fact, sometimes I’m not even hungry at mealtime!

I have to say, that I have not really seen this as a ‘challenge’, but more as an introduction. I was not able to totally clean out my kitchen and re-stock with proper foods, but I continue to replace as I can, and have done the best I could.  I have totally changed my shopping habits. I had house guests, then went on vacation during the last week and a half, and again, wasn’t perfect, but made what I thought were the best choices.

And the best part of all… I did not feel guilty!  So my program was not sabotaged.

A side note… A couple of items on my original “why” list included wearing some of my favorite clothes that I had ‘outgrown’, and being able to run up my stairs – something I used to do routinely which I had not done in a long time. Well, today I comfortably wore a pair of slacks that I could barely button before the program, and over the past few days I have once again begun running up the stairs! YAY!

Why has this program worked for me where other programs haven’t? The online support group is hugely responsible. I am a pretty private person, never comfortable joining the Weight Watchers type programs where you go sit at meetings and share stories. But this group has been a huge help to me. I was heartened to learn that others were not ‘perfect’, but still successful. I love the recipe sharing too. I look forward everyday to see what new ideas someone may have come up with. So thanks to all the members as well!

Thanks again for all you do.  I look forward to continuing my Paleo lifestyle and enjoying my healthy, “golden” years!!

September 17th, 2017 | Testimonials

Hello,

My name is Sharon Cole and I am from Ridgely Maryland.

Before starting the Paleo Secret 30-Day Challenge, my weight has always been up and down (mostly up). I would lose a few pounds and quickly gain it back with a couple of extra too.

I have had stomach issues that have gone on for years. I had gone several years with these really bad and extremely painful attacks in my abdomen, only to have my doctor tell me I had Irritable Bowl Syndrome. Finally, in 2010, I went to another doctor and they found that my gallbladder was “sludge” and it had to be removed. Then in 2014, I lost my appendix and still had issues with IBS and sometimes-severe diarrhea.

Just before deciding to start the 30-Day Challenge, I was going through some really horrible days where I could barely walk. My doctor thought that it was caused by arthritis in the spine and a fall I had in March. After months of therapy, which was not helping, I sought out another doctor. She ran some tests and discovered that I had H. Pylori – which is a bacteria in the stomach. I decided that was enough and once I was through the treatment for that I was going to try something different. That is when I found the 30-Day Challenge.

My weight at the beginning of the challenge was 236 pounds. I ran into some problems during the challenge (gastroenteritis) but at the end I weighed in at 223 pounds. Now my exercising was not so much cardio as it was walking, physical therapy, and yoga, however, I am still very happy with the results. I am going to continue with this way of life and am planning to order a much better quality of probiotics. I am now a firm believer that our health issues come from the gut! Thanks you so much for the encouraging emails and the recipes!

 

Sincerely,
Sharon Cole

I wanted to try the Paleo Secret 30-Day Challenge not only because I wanted to lose weight but also because some of my fasting glucose tests have been higher than normal!

I do not want to fall victim to adult onset diabetes. Doctors are checking my HG and A1C and I want to make sure that number is lower than the normal.

I also take a number of blood pressure medications, which cause my ankles to swell. I think they make me dizzy as well! And I am also taking medication for elevated lipids.

I decided to make a lifestyle change – to eat healthy, naturally grown, whole foods and no processed foods or added sugars.

After 30 days, I have lost 10 lbs. I increased muscle mass and reduced body fat – something, I didn’t believe would happen on this diet.

I have seen a change! I feel better and I have more energy than ever before. I just turned 75 years old this August, and am still working – many people think that I am in my 60s!

I feel good, and I want to educate others – even my spouse, who can eat anything and not gain weight!

I plan to continue this lifestyle, beat those tests and hopefully get off those medications that people have told me I’d be on forever.

Thank you Brenda and Chad for introducing me to this way of thinking and living.

I don’t have before pictures, but if you’ll be patient, I might come up with one in about a year! I would also like to follow-up with you about those lab tests.

 

Thanks,

Hi, my name is Jacqueline Tillar, I’m 49 years old and I live in Durham, NC.

I have struggled with my weight for over 22 year, since my oldest son was born. I have a torn meniscus in both knees and arthritis in both knees as well so exercising has always been a challenge. It required icing my knees after each workout.  So I usually would not stick to any kind of diet or exercise routine for very long.

I have tried every diet out there over the year – Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, South Beach, green smoothies and on and on. When I read about the Paleo Secret 30-Day Challenge I thought it may be just what I needed.

Over the last 30 days I have felt great!  I’ve lost 12 lbs.! I’m exercising but not having knee swelling so I have not had to ice them. My joints feel great all over. I don’t have any stomach issues at all. I do miss my desserts, so I ordered your Paleo Treats Dessert cookbook. I plan to continue this diet as a way of life.

 

Thanks so much for your knowledge and guidance!

I went into the 30-Day Challenge with the decision to “do my best” to eat Paleo knowing that I am not much of a meat eater.

This was the easiest “diet” I’ve ever tried.

I lost 11 lbs. in the first 14 days and then just maintained that loss because of a few slips here and there. I had my biometric screening at work and my:

  • Blood pressure was: 98/64,
  • Heart Rate = 74
  • Cholesterol = 153 (HDL = 69 and Triglycerides undetectable Fasting Blood Sugar = 78)
  • BMI = 23.8

The nurse doing my blood work had to rerun the triglycerides because they weren’t detectable, then she asked if I was following any sort of special diet. She is now looking into Paleo.

Everyone is so surprised at my progress. I definitely feel better eating this way. I have less joint pain and an overall better feeling of health.

Thank you for the emails and group support.
