So a couple years ago I had warmed to the idea that most of what I was ingesting was likely not good for me, shaped up my diet a bit. Then I even ran my own self-experiment to see if one can eat healthy and cheaply at the same time. Yep. Ok, check that. For some reason, for the past year I believed this mantra that I needed a bunch of carbs (I’m also a runner), hence I would eat lots of breads and pastas. Everything started to shift again last June, which is when I met Bob Ewing and Antonie Hodge.
Bob Ewing spoke at a seminar in Atlanta, GA for the Foundation for Economic Education. When I introduced him to the audience, I remember there being something in there that piqued my interest so I went over to Antonie Hodge, his girlfriend later to ask what it meant. It may have been something like “he enjoys living a primal lifestyle” or “running barefoot”. Anyway, point is, I saw it asked her about it and the rest is history.
Antonie introduced me to Robb Wolf’s site, Marks Daily Apple and a slew of others. She’s pretty smart and so was able to explain quite about off the top of her head. Ever since then I’ve been doing my own scouring, reading, listening to the Paleo-Solution podcast and have since gone “completely primal”, incorporating things like a full night’s sleep, play, sunshine, barefoot running and walking etc. into my life. Never woulda thought I’d be blogging for one of the biggest primal blogs…but here I am. I am simply a learner trying new things and seeing what works.
Thank you Bob and Antonie for introducing me to this and patiently (still) answering all my questions about this stuff! It can be pretty complicated and scientific at times.
