The Benefits of The Paleo/Low Carb Lifestyle

I hope you are enjoying my YouTube videos as much as I have fun making them. I am continuing the education series by talking about the benefits of this lifestyle.
I have to admit that the results from this lifestyle have been amazing! I have never felt better in my life. I have so much energy and literally jump out of bed in the morning. Here are just a few of the benefits from this lifestyle:

Endless energy-
I no longer require coffee or caffeine to fuel my energy. I feel like I am always wide away and ready to go.

Better skin- I have always had pretty nice skin thanks to great genetics from my parents but I have noticed a glow to my skin and tightness that was never there before.

Better blood panel- Before I started eating this way, I had a thorough blood panel run to see what my standings were. Then, six months later, I had the same panels run to see if this lifestyle had an impact or if it was all a placebo effect.

My cholesterol as whole increased but the ratios were never better. Doctors are now moving away from just looking at the numbers but rather the ratios.

I am no longer anemic. I have been anemic since I was 9 years old and for the first time in forever, my body was accepting the nutrients and iron. This was truly a miracle.

No more leg cramps, this is something I have always battled and this simple lifestyle change allows me to sleep through the night.

Sustained weight loss- I was always one that watched my intake and tried to balance it with my crazy workouts. I have tried everything (and successfully failed at it) and like everyone else, sunk hundreds of dollars in so called programs but ate total crap. Isn’t that funny how we will do anything to look good but never give a second thought to our health?

Never count calories- Since I eat a lot of fats (no, I do not live off of bacon, I could, but I don’t) and proteins, I am never hungry. This is a great feat that keeps cities from being ruined Godzilla-style. I have always been the type of person who gets super hungry and then all of a sudden I am hangry and unknowingly taking it out on everyone around me. Since I started this lifestyle, this no longer happens to me. I am once again the happy, go-lucky Ri that everyone knows and loves.

Clarity- I know this sounds really odd but this lifestyle has led to better sleep: I now require less sleep but the quality of the sleep I receive is amazing. I sleep exactly 7-8 hours but I feel amazing when I wake up. When I am awake, I have such clarity and focus. I think this comes from the nutrients in the foods that I eat.

These are just a few of the benefits of the diet, why wouldn’t you choose to eat healthier foods that make you feel amazing? Start a 30-day challenge today to see what results you get!
