Trust me when I say, I’ve made so many food mistakes along the way.

Oh my goodness, when it comes to nutrition, I’ve made my fair share of food mistakes.

In fact, I recently celebrated my 7th anniversary of “going paleo,” and I wrote a big blog post covering some of the oopsies that have happened to me along the way.

Even if you aren’t paleo, the concept is still the same: Strict diets can be a great starting point for a healthier lifestyle.

But ultimately, strict diets – whether you’re paleo, primal, gluten-free, vegan, or whatever – all have a major downfall…

…they don’t take YOUR context, YOUR life, YOUR goals into account.

And that’s where you come in. To truly make any eating paradigm work for you, you have to factor yourself into the equation. That means learning to listen to your body, and to get acquainted with how it feels.

To tinker and try new things. To let go of what doesn’t work. And to remember that even if you do figure it out, what works now may not work in the future.

You’re inevitably going to change, and your nutritional needs, at some point, will too.

In This Episode of Harder to Kill Radio, We Cover:

  • Why treating a diet like a diet is bound to fail
  • How to really eat in a way that’s sustainable long-term
  • The macronutrient everyone’s forgetting about when it comes to nutrition
  • How not eating enough can ruin your goals (and why it’s so common)
  • Why healthy desserts are a trap
  • …and a lot more.

  1. Just wanted to say that I listened to this episode this morning and I think the conversation about people generally lacking critical thinking skills is so spot on! People like to be fed information and are likely to follow dogma diet philosophies over listening to their own bodies. Wish this was a bigger part of the larger conversation on food and health.

  2. Quote: “Sheep! You are all sheep. Bahhhhh” (Can’t Hardly Wait). I’m not sure when people stopped thinking. Critical thinking skills are very much lacking in our society today. It is very very scary to think about where we will be 40 years from now. The majority of our best thinkers are dead or will be within 40 years. This is how the gap between mass society and the elite gets bigger. I’m loving S2 of the podcast! These are the conversations that need to be widespread in the community.

    1. Hey Candace…I’m not sure either to be honest.

      It scares me, too…and I just hope we can keep questioning things as a culture.

      Thanks for the very kind words…I’m going to keep doing my best!
