Please Don’t Tell Me It’s Hard – Will

One of the most common things I hear about nutrition here in Crossfit Ireland is that it’s too hard to stick to the Paleo diet. Let’s examine this.

You’re a member of the human race. That puts you in pretty impressive company.

Members of your species have landed on the moon, split the atom, built pyramids and invented the iPhone. These people are not fundamentally any different to you.

We can do some fairly impressive stuff when we apply ourselves to it. Sticking to the Paleo diet is pretty bloody easy in the grand scheme of things.

Folks, all you have to do is go to a supermarket, buy food, cook it and eat it.

While you’re telling me that you find it hard to eat scrambled eggs for breakfast, somebody elsewhere in the world is learning to walk after a car crash. That’s hard.

Someone in a war-torn country probably got shot today, and is busy dealing with that. Saying “no thank you, I don’t want a sandwich” is a little easier.

You’ve got a dry, safe place to sleep, clean water and an internet connection. You’re doing pretty ok.

Let’s quit feeling sorry for ourselves and eat some meat and vegetables folks.
