Challenge of the Week: NO BREAD!
This weeks Challenge has been a long time coming. As much as we believe in the Paleo Diet, we know it requires a HUGE shift in the way we approach food and our eating strategy.
This week’s challenge will be a small step to show you just how AMAZING you will feel when you cut out BREAD & Pastas from your diet!
Many people have some level of intolerance to gluten (the protein that is found in bread, pasta, etc.) Even if you don’t show any symptoms, at a cellular level, it causes INFLAMMATION in many people without our knowledge.
Something You Should Know….
Since wheat grows free and open in the field as a plant, it has a natural protective mechanism build in called LECTINS. Lectins are the plants natural protection against insects and other pests in order to not get eaten by them.
When we eat bread, we are ingesting these lectins, and they can cause crazy amounts of inflammation in our bodies.
In addition, lectins can cause something called “leaky Gut” which let the “bad” things in through the intestinal wall and not allow your body to absorb the “good” things like nutrients, vitamins, and minerals.
Lectins = NO GOOD!
You will not only feel AMAZING come Sunday, but you might have even notices that you dropped a couple of pounds
