Frequently Asked Questions
There are so many diets out there - how do I know this is the right one?
I hear you. I asked the same thing – but what I figured out was that Paleo / Primal / Keto was basically our factory issued eating strategy. The reason that we have so many diabetics and overweight people is that we have a metabolism that was built to survive in a scarce food environment and we’ve plugged it into a carb-heavy, super-abundant food environment. We’ve got to pay attention to how we’re wired to eat.
How can anyone afford to eat grass fed meats and organic fruits and veggies?
Great question. Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good. This is about making smart food choices. Not everything has to be grass fed and organic but when you stop buying fast or prepared food you realize that you can cook some incredible meals for a fraction of what you spend eating out. The other thing that you realize is that when you pay for a happy meal at a fast food place, the price that you pay at the register is only a fraction of the cost of that meal. Fast food is the gift that just keeps on giving…
I'm a lousy cook. Can you still help me?
You don’t have to be a chef to crank out some great food. You’ll learn how to cook meals that don’t take all day to cook and that taste fantastic.
I've got a medical condition - shouldn't I check with my doctor first?
Absolutely. I’m not a doctor and I’m not going to give medical advice. I started this website because my wife and I have been eating this way for years and we loved how it made us feel and we wanted to introduce this way of eating to others.
Why do you have stuff on here about movement and sleep? Isn't it just calories in vs calories burned?
Just like we’ve gotten some sketchy advice about what types of foods we should be eating we’ve also gotten some questionable advice about burning off calories. There’s growing research that suggests that our diet, sleep and stress management play an even greater role in weight management than exercise and that the type and intensity of exercise we choose plays a critical roll in determining if exercise is going to enhance or counter our weight management goals.
I'm in terrible shape and walking to the mailbox wears my ass out - how can I get this to work for me?
Not a problem. This is about taking steps in the right direction. First, we’ll get your diet headed in the right direction and walking to the mailbox counts as exercise. You’ll keep building on that until you’re heading around the block. This is about building on your progress.
