Guide For Starting Paleo

Starting a Paleo diet is much like starting with a new Paleo skin care, you don’t know where or how to begin. It is pretty normal to make a few mistakes at the beginning like consuming lentils alone, a common misconception with Paleo, and avoiding butter and coffee which is actually not a necessity. While these are small mistakes, there are those that commit serious misconceptions with the Paleo diet that the experience turned out to be miserable for them thus they ended up dropping it. The following tips below help beginners avoid those mistakes.

  • Forget about the food pyramid when starting with Paleo. Many of those starting out believe that Paleo is similar to the dietary guidelines which require only low fat. We have been programmed to hate fatty food and those that are rich in cholesterol therefore we also follow this line of thinking when starting Paleo. In fact, the diet is all about embracing saturated fat from whole foods such as liver, coconut oil, avocados and egg yolks.
  • Do not rely on assumptions but rather look up specific nutrient to accurately track what you are consuming. This is important if you want to make sure you don’t go beyond the required number. If you plan to stick with low-carb Paleo, your carb consumption must be between 50 and 150 while medium-carb is between 150 and 300. If you don’t look up the number of carbs, you will end up guessing and might go beyond the required.
  • Prior to beginning the Paleo diet, conduct a shadow week. For the whole week, you can eat as usual but make sure to write everything that you consume. After that, check the list and determine the foods that are allowed within the Paleo diet and find alternatives for those that are not allowed. This way, you can estimate the amount of grocery shopping you need to do and begin with your meal plan.
  • Just like choosing a new Paleo skin care routine, you should be flexible when committing to the Paleo diet. This is a common pitfall for many who got so obsessed with getting it right that at the end of the day they were not able to follow anything because they over think things.

During the event that was held at the hotel garden, there was a man offering sets of glimmering bowls that were made from copper and bronze. The trade was passed down from the Baan Bu communities, In a corner, foreign tourists and locals lined up to buy gac, a juice made from a red colored fruit that grows in KohSarn Chao neighborhood. In another stall, handmade textiles were shown off by descendants from the ethnic Mon from Bang Kadi community.

The six old neighborhoods that were teleported to Bangkok include Banglamphu, Hua Takhe, Baan Bu, Nang Loeng, Bang Kadi and KohSarn Chao. The trend of offering tours to the traditional neighborhoods of Bangkok is fast catching up with several companies like Hivesters and Local Alike following what AchirayaThamparipattra has started.

Meanwhile, Airbnb, a global accommodation service has recently launched “Experiences” to allow tourists to experience cooking classes and bicycle trips with locals. When tourists experience local communities, they stay longer and spend more than staying at beaches in Phuket and Pattaya.

Meanwhile, nothing beats the popularity of Thai food that is served in the best restaurants in Sukhumvit for both tourists and locals. The food flavors are unique and served in an atmosphere that ensures a delightful dining experience. Restaurants in Bangkok area are different from the usual because the serve with passion and love.
