Chocolate!
« on: November 15, 2016, 08:04:06 PM »
I've been on Paleo for 1-1/2 years now. 42 years old, 5'8, male. Before Paleo: 157lbs. After Paleo: a lean 147lbs. I do HIIT training 3 times a week.

Why did I go on Paleo? I'm trying to get more lean and lose some stomach body fat that jiggles when I run etc...

My diet is strict. Meat, eggs, veggies and berries and I snack on unsalted nuts. I also drink a lot of water.

Once in a while I'll do the 80/20 rule.
I do get an ice cream with my son 1-2 times a month and snack on a small package of M&M's, Snickers or Reese's Peanut Butter cups a few times a week.

Even after the "occasional" sugar snack I managed to keep my weight at 147lbs.

Is what I'm doing ok?

Sugar isn't good for you but you seem to be doing just fine.  Nothing wrong with 80/20 - better than 100% garbage.

Personally I wouldn't be able to handle the candy, but it sounds like it's working for you.

Try making your own to satisfy the cravings.  I like to melt down 90% chocolate and add some coconut oil and crushed almonds. I pour it into an ice cube tray and leave them in the freezer. For zero sugar use bakers chocolate instead.

That sounds good!

After eating sugar if you are able to manage your weight then there is nothing wrong with it.
