Throwback Thursday: Why I Abandoned My Paleo 30 Day Challenge...

Welcome to the latest edition of Throwback Thursday. This is a weekly post where I share either a grossly cute or a grossly embarrassing (see below) throwback picture and, more importantly, dive deep into the Running for Dummies archives to share a post you may have missed from the early days (i.e. six months ago) of this blog.

Got to love a bowl haircut.

This week we are revisiting a post where I talked about my experience with a Paleo 30 day challenge and the reasons why I abandoned it after only 9 days. It was a decision which ultimately led me to a realization about personal choice for diet and exercise: To each his (or her) own. What works for some, may not be ideal for others. We all have to make the choices about what we put in our body based on our own experiences, lifestyle, desires, and goals. Deep down, we know what works best for us better than any popular diet plan, blogger, or diet guru. I hope you will click over and check out the original post and let me know what you think about it.

  1. AMEN. our bodies DO KNOW INTUITIVELY whats best for us!

  2. I loved this post. I follow the Paleo lifestyle to about 90%. It works for me, but there are some things, beer, that I want and I don't feel being all nazi and saying you can't have it makes you a healthier person. I have tried the Whole30 three times, first time made it to day 22 but it was a beer sorta day, you know! I think we need to find what works for us individually and go with it.

  3. I love the paleo philosophy but can't hang with all of the specifics. I'm partially paleo and partially gluten free ;)

  4. I like this one, Lea, because I just can't do diets anymore, or RESTRICTION of certain foods. Forbidden foods - I just won't do it.

    I can't live without hummus either.
