PaleoJay Podcast #41- Be a new Paleo YOU- Back to the future!


Listen to PaleoJay podcast #41- NOW! Just scroll down to listen now...

I'll be on iTunes by tomorrow at the latest- PaleoJay #41 on iTunes



Yes, you really can become the New Paleo You!  It won’t happen overnight, but considering that you’ve been sliding into the Old Neolithic you for decades, at least, you will be very pleased to hear that your new self, no matter how much you’ve been damaged metabolically from bad nutrition and exercise advice, is only months away in most cases.

Let’s take a bad case as an example- let’s say you are a life-long exerciser, mainly running and other forms of “cardio” or “aerobics” like spinning classes, dance classes, jazzercise, whatever kind of exercise that only is supposed to burn calories and help endurance...  this kind of exercise is really bad!  just so you know, it is counterproductive, and will only teach your body to hold onto fat, raise your cortisol or stress hormones, lower your immunity to colds and flu, and wear out your joints.

And let’s say you have been a “yo-yo” dieter for years- reducing calories to 1500 per day or less, losing weight (not only fat, but mostly muscle first, and then some fat), until your body intervened (luckily) and forced you to eat more food... unfortunately, the body can’t tell you exactly what food to eat, so you just ate lots of low fat (which equals high sugar) processed fake foods, lean cuisine type nutritionally barren processed fake meals, and horrible fast foods... yuck....

This is actually a pretty typical modern American, especially of the female variety!  (Males have their own bad normal “types”, but let’s work with this for now- the solutions are identical!)

And, in addition, you’ve probably gone regularly to the Doctor, trying to be “responsible about your health”, and have been prescribed various medications for, oh, high blood pressure, migraine headaches, anti- depressants, and maybe (worst of all!) a Statin drug for high cholesterol.   And you probably have various skin ailments, dry or oily, perhaps acne or rosacia, and all in all you just feel BAD. You have trouble sleeping, and feel anxious much of the time.

All of this is very common, almost inevitable for the present day and manner of living and eating...

But now, let’s go... Back to the Future!



Now, you are going to become the New Paleo YOU!  And don’t worry, it’s not all that hard, in fact it’s easier than what you are doing right now, and the results will amaze both you, your family and friends, and especially even your Doctor!
First off, change your diet.

Actually, this is first, second, third and fourth- change the way you eat.

Simple things first-  throw away your salt!  No, I’m not telling you to eat less salt, I’m telling you to eat MORE!  But get a good quality SEA SALT, not that lousy fake processed salt made by big industry.  Himalayan is a great place to start!
Tastes amazing, and loaded with healthy minerals your body is craving.

Next, throw away your vegetable oils and margarine and Crisco poisons!  They have no nutrients at all, and are only helping to make you fat and sick- throw them out, don’t even donate them to the homeless, they are better off with out them too.  Again, I am not asking you to do without, just substitute UP- go buy real, pastured butter.
(Hey, this paleo thing isn’t so hard yet, is it?  It’s just way tastier...)

For pastured butter, buy Kerrygold from Ireland or even better, Organic Valley pastured butter from the wondrous state of Wisconsin wherein I reside... for OIL, get olive oil, coconut oil, ghee (clarified butter) is also great and readily available.  Do NOT get peanut oil (a legume), but real NUT oils like macadamia or almond oils are great.  Coconut oil and pastured butter will be your go to butters, but real honest-to-God lard from grass fed beef and pastured pork or (my favorite) duck is to be prized!

So far, everything has been improvements to your life and diet (and your health!)  Nothing hard so far...  but now:

I want you to give up grains.

This is actually the key, the lynchpin of your health.  This one thing will improve your health beyond all measure; make it possible for your to be ideal healthy lean self, bring you back to your new Paleo you, and improve everything!

And it’s not that hard.

Basically, from now on resolve to only eat real food!

You can start just by going to bed early (proper sleep- 8 hours minimum is super important- just as important as what you eat, really!  Get to sleep EARLY!)

And then, get up early, in time to make a good, solid, filling, make-your-body-happy-for-the-first-time-in-a-long-time breakfast!

And also in time to pack a super nutritious Paleo Lunch- a big, giant salad, with lots and lots of beef, or chicken, or tuna, or salmon, or ALL of the above would be great!  Don’t forget to add a lot of good quality FAT, in the form of olive oil and apple cider vinegar along with it.


Then, come home and either fire up the grill (like me!)  and make a nice steak, chicken, grill some bacon for tomorrow’s breakfast (and a little ‘snack’ for tonight too!), seafood, maybe grill a baked sweet potato to top with real sour cream and butter...  not sounding too bad yet, is it???

The main thing is to stay really, really full, especially at first.  Then temptations are easy to avoid...

But, I have realized over time that the very best way to implement this New Paleo You approach is with is a good Paleo Smoothie in the morning.  Get a Vitamix blender, a good supply of real God-made foods, veggies, cod liver oil, coconut milk, berries, and you will have the battle already mostly won.

You have a big canister of smoothie, and if you have a glass in the morning of the most nutrient dense food on earth, trust me, your body will be utterly happy and you will not be hungry for longer than you will believe.

You will have no desire for neolithic (GRAIN) foods, devoid of nutrition, because you have had all the nutrition you need!

This is huge.  The reason modern folks are hungry virtually all the time is because they are eating things that give their bodies no nutrition- so your body says “EAT EAT EAT”!,
And you do, but what you eat, again, has no nutrition!

So, the EAT signal never stops!

But now, for you, IT DOES!!

Just eat lots of real food, LOTS!  To get a Vitamix to help you easily process, actually chew up the food for you and get it into your thankful body, go to paleojay.com and click on the Vitamix link.  You’ll get free shipping, which is the best deal on the Vitamix you will find anywhere, and also help support this wonderful show, which is the best deal you will get on a show anywhere (free)!

Oh, and after the first day, what do you do?  REPEAT!

That’s right, day after day, you just eat the healthiest foods on the planet (and any other planet as well!)-

Nutrient density is the name of the game!  Meats, grass fed is best, pastured pork is best, free range chicken is best- bacon, steaks, pork chops, roasts, barbequed chicken, more bacon, shish-ke-bobs, more bacon, seafood, shrimp, scallops, sardines, mussels, tuna, salmon- you get the drift!  Just really good, really real God made foods- EAT THE FATTED CALF!!  This information is just loaded into and peppered throughout the Bible!

And, as for exercise?  I know, you’ll go crazy, thinking you need to “burn calories” and need to “feel the burn” as Jane Fonda infamously said...

But I, PaleoJay say to you, now- Do NOT exercise for 30 days!

Even I can’t believe I just said that!  But I mean it-

It is SO much more important that you understand and start into really DOING these dietary changes, that I want you to have NO DISTRACTIONS.

Your future health, your body composition (fat to muscle) ratio, your need for poisonous medications- all of this is based 90% PLUS on DIET alone!

And this from someone who does some exercise just about every single day...

But, at this point, exercise is not what you need, my friend.  You need a...

New Paleo You!   And you will get it- let’s go back to the future!

Start tomorrow!  Keep me posted on your progress.  This first week is 100% about diet, and diet alone!  KEEP ME POSTED!

I have a Speakpipe feature on my site, paleojay.com, where you can just talk into your computer to ask me a question, or even tell me that I’m a creep if you want...

Go ahead and use it son (or daughter!)...

And take some before pictures for yourself, because in about 90 days, your after pictures will be amazing!

I will see all of you Paleo You people next week, next Sunday!  God bless us, everyone!!
