Someone once told me that Monday is National Diet Day...

I thought really, I don't remember hearing that? And then they went on to say...

Yeah, EVERY Monday is National Diet Day...

The person was highlighting the fact that we all put things off until the perfect time.
Like to start something on a Monday will make you more successful??

I think not.

The point is to start... start at lunch today, start at dinner... start by not going for the extra snack after dinner tonight...


Here are a few resources and guidelines that we use and work for us. Maybe some sound extreme to you... ease into it... see how you feel.

Our guideline
Eat clean meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar and... and in our house little to no dairy

The Paleo Diet Cookbook by Dr. Loren Cordain (don't let the word diet scare ya... It's really a cookbook with explanations on why he agrees with Paleo)
