Ug, Ug. Me try Paleo, Ug.

For the next 40 days J and I are trying the Paleo diet. That's right, we're eating caveman style. For the most part, I don't think I'll miss bread or pastas all that much. The biggest challenge will be having fresh foods prepped and on hand for quick and easy dinners.

Although I'm sad to see enchiladas and sub-style sandwiches go, I'm welcoming the thought of crisp, refreshing veggies and feeling healthier. I've already lost about 10-15lbs since last fall just by cutting out a lot of snacks and reducing my pop consumption. Let's see if the Paleo diet, combined with nicer weather on the way, can subtract another 30lbs. 60lbs would be even better.
