  1. The paleo diet is a way of eating that works for some people. But its not right for everybody; vegetarians and vegans included.
    I suggest to my clients that its all about balance and moderation, a bit of everything. If for whatever reason they decide not to eat a certain food group then substitute it with something else rather than eliminate it such as eggs for meat or tofu for meat, if they want to go vegetarian or vegan

  2. Much to my dismay, at age 40 my weight began to creep up. I assumed it was because of my age, a slower metabolism and hormonal changes. To change I had tried EVERY diet program, Weight Watchers, Nutrisystem, Atkins as well as medically supervised programs with hunger suppressing medications. Each was successful to varying degrees. However, I ALWAYS gained the weight back. How could this happen? I have been on a weight loss/weight gain roller coaster for the last 20 years. I purchased several Paleo books until I found Nancy’s blog and then my life changed. This is the best overall in information and has great recipes. I have lost several pounds in a couple of weeks. I feel more energized, strong and balanced throughout our days. The best part is, for the most part, no crazy out of reach ingredients, the meals are simple and really tasty…all which fits in very nicely with our busy lifestyle.
