A report

Although I haven’t written for a few months, I haven’t given up paleo. I’ve been reminded how powerful it is. Although I continue to drink, by simply being focused on a mainly paleo diet, I’ve been healthier. I’ve learned, also, to notice how bread, beer and cheese negatively affect how I feel.

I haven’t had heartburn until I decided to have calamari fried in bread. I’d been irresponsible the previous day as well, as some of my dinners had included breaded proteins.

That my wrist feels a little better is good – it’s been my excuse for not exercising. I finally got the industrial wrap, one which I’d been avoiding because it was twice as much as the other ones.

I’m at the same weight. A little softer. But I’m still convinced, if not as enthusiastic. Giving up the sugar is not hard. Giving up the beer lifestyle has been a bit more challenging.

    In my definition of the paleo diet I allow certain alcohol. An excerpt:

    The inclusion of alcohol in the paleo diet is controversial. Our paleo ancestors would have come upon and eaten fermented fruit. Even spurned male butterflies get drunk on fermented fruit. Some have issues with the yeast. In Wild Fermentation (p. 127 in Amazon.com’s Look Inside) there is a recipe for spontaneous hard cider that requires no added sugar or yeast. Now the resulting product (6% ABV) does not last long, but it would be paleo! No published paleo diet includes alcohol. But if you are going to drink it, pick one from fermented fruit and water it down to 6%.

    Spurned butterflies? That’s funny! I guess that means watered down
    Rieslings. Yesterday I had a couple glasses of one with a few icecubes. Very refreshing. My meal was a clean steak (with some spice rub), grilled eggplant, garlic and broccoli. Delicious.

      Butterflies only live a few days. All males try to find a mate. Not all are successful. Before the unsuccessful ones die they find fermented fruit and have a good drunk.
