fail fast

Fail fast: This is the biggest part of The Paleo Shift. Let’s say you messed up. Let’s say you went off the rails and were all “PALEO-NO!” It happened! Move on. Fail fast. Don’t dwell on your mistakes, shake it off. For your next meal, be Paleo. “Fall down seven times, get up eight,” is the Japanese proverb. Paleo is a lifestyle, not a crash diet. We should strive for progress, not perfection and to be compassionate with ourselves when we fall short.


what to do after eating badly

“Be honest. What was the reason you ate whatever it was that has you feeling gross now? Was it in response to a stressful situation? Were you bored? Did you feel pressure to eat what everyone else was eating? Figure it out. Write it down. Understand the why.

Understanding the WHY behind your decision to eat badly is really the most important thing. If your current eating habits are leaving you feeling unfulfilled and deprived, then of course you’re going to continually rebel against whatever restrictions you’ve put on yourself.”

you need purpose

“Motivation without purpose is like lighting matches to try and keep warm. It works for a brief period of time, but in the end it becomes exhausting and futile. The point is, if you are constantly needing a motivational quote to keep you going it may not be motivation you need at all but rather purpose. A strong purpose is like a bonfire that never goes out. “Looking good” is rarely a strong enough purpose to sustain a permanent lifestyle change. Define who you want to be at your highest self. The thing that would move you to do anything. That is your purpose and when you can attach your body change goals to that, it is not a matter of if you will change, but when.” — Metabolic Effect
