The past week has been a really informative one for me as it’s helped me understand exactly what you’re after in terms of downloadable Primal guides, shopping lists and online resources.
After all the emails, whatsapp’s (and picture’s of your food with the caption “can I eat this?”) I received, I’ve identified 3 different types of Primal wannabe’s. By the way some beautiful, colourful food selfies coming through, you ladies are talented!
So to help me make the right creative choices going forward, please leave a comment below this post and let me know which one of the 3 diet personalities below are you.
1. The sexy body seeker:
With every year that passes, you seem to be putting on a couple extra kilo’s. You’re eating “healthy” at the moment, well okay you have the occasional treat here and there (what’s life without a couple guilty pleasures?) but you’re finding it very difficult to lose weight and keep it off.
You don’t have the time (or the want!) to exercize very much, but you know you probably should because most of the people around you who are eating a similar diet to yours combined with a slightly crazy exercize regime, are skinnier than you.
This group of people are commonly referred to as “the skinny bitches”. But fk it, you’d rather be chubby and happy than skinny and constantly exercizing and feeling bad about eating a slice of chocolate cake.
However, you want to lose weight badly and you know that if you do, things are gonna change for you. In the back of your mind there’s that lingering thought of “is my health suffering?” but that’s a problem you’ll deal with if and when it arrives.
If someone could just give you a simple guide that’s easy to follow and guarantee’s that you’ll lose weight (without having to become an exercize freak), you’d be more than happy to commit for a period of time. After all, you’ve tried every other diet on the block, what’s the harm in trying another.
“What can’t I eat and how long will it take to lose weight?” are your burning questions.
2. The healthy body seeker:
Losing weight is a secondary concern of yours and an added advantage to this lifestyle.
You’ve heard about this new way of eating more consciously or more ‘cleanly’. You’ve heard about others who’ve healed certain issues in their bodies naturally by going this route and you’re determined to educate yourself on this subject and adopt this lifestyle change sooner than later.
You are 100% ready for this – “how and where do I start?” is your burning question.
3. The easy diet seeker:
You’ve been skinny all your life and have never really had to worry about what you eat but lately you’ve noticed some cellulite popping up here and there and your skin doesn’t seem to have that healthy glow that it used to.
You know this would be a great ‘diet’ to adopt for yourself and your family. You’ve heard that Coke is really bad for you and you really should include more fruit into your diet. Your next shopping trip is going to be a lot healthier.
You don’t have time to learn about why you can’t eat this or why you should eat that (but you are mildly interested), you mainly just need a shopping list with some healthier packaged alternatives.
You haven’t quite realized that this isn’t just a “stock your cupboards differently” type of diet as much as it is a complete lifestyle overhaul. Even if it is, there must be some simple tips you can adopt to become a little healthier starting today?
“Where do I download the shopping list?” is your burning question.
So which diet personality are you?
Please leave a comment below and let me know which one of the above groups you fall into, or perhaps you fall into a different group that I’m not aware of yet. If so, please let me know so I can make a decision on what I should be placing the most importance on moving forward.
And let me tell you, you ladies (and men) are feisty individuals! I never quite expected you to be so open with me with regards to your health issues and how you like to do things. Apparently there’s no such thing as TMI…! It’s been an interesting week so thank you for being so open and honest, I know that’s not always easy.
So thanks again for all your feedback and don’t forget to leave a comment and let me know if you’re a sexy body, healthy body or easy diet seeker?
