Many of you are at the beginning of the Best Shape of Your Life Challenge. For some of you, it’s your first nutrition challenge. Coupled with just getting the hang of a Paleo diet, the first week may have felt like a huge challenge in and of itself.
Depending on where you may have begun, the removal of highly addictive foods can trigger a bit of a withdrawal phase. Sugar is the biggest culprit and its removal will likely result in a feeling of lethargy. The key is to power through and know that your body will bounce back once it knows that the bad stuff will not be returning.
