I was over on Everyday-carry.com and noticed reference to "paleo eating" ... I never knew this had a name, but I've sorta been doing it for awhile. due to health reasons, I spent about 2 years trying out Organic Raw Vegan, and although cumbersome in Canadian climate, I dropped 30 lbs in no time. It was easy to do when both my wife and I were doing it. Since getting pregnant, food aversions have left this diet by the wayside, but I still REALLY enjoy making a green smoothie every morning. Anyways, since having our little boy, I've concluded the following: - animal protien is essential in building muscle - if you need to detox, RAW vegan is the way to go, no doubt. - white starches, flour, carbs of the sort are terrible for you. And in looking up Paleo, it seems its the same conculsion? Can anyone share any thoughts or expeierences with this. I'm in the midst of trying to drop 20 lbs and build up muscle to help me with all the photography gear I schlepp on a daily basis ... which has lead to back issues .. which I realize is a lack of muscle and esp core strength. Any reccos on work outs how to better building core strength and muscle? thx!
