Weight Watchers vs. Paleo?

I've been doing the paleo lifestyle for weeks now. I'd like to use lifestyle because I believe it's not just a diet, like all other diets. If you want to lose weight, diet will never be enough, a lifestyle change is :)
So as I was reading about Paleo, I've come across a website where they featured 30 diets and guess what, Paleo was ranked the last! I was like? Blank all over my face. I have lost a total of 10 pounds by the way by walking, running, some weights and Paleo. But Weight Watcher's was friggin' number one on the list!
I was thinking if I already lost this much weight for a weeks in Paleo that ranked 30 in the list, how much more if I tried the first one! Well, I really liked Paleo because it was just not about losing the excess weight. It was a great healthy step for me. I never had milk, though I ate cheese once in a while, I never had nuts for weeks, but I had them on cheat days, I ate rice a couple of times and really, it's hard to go Paleo al…

Paleo For Beginners: Eating Out Paleo Style!

Eating out is sometimes hard for a Paleolithic dieter because almost what is served was used to be packed, canned and processed. These people look for restaurants that provide dishes of unprocessed food items. So, if you’re on this diet, follow these tips when eating out caveman style.
Paleo For Beginners: Do your research. Before going out to eat, search for restaurants that provide paleo-friendly menu items. Being prepared will make your dining experience hassle-free.
Photo Credit Paleo For Beginners: Skip the dessert. Going Paleo means keeping your diet sugar and carbs free so, stay away from the breadbasket. When the friendly waiter offers you the dessert menu, politely say no.
Photo Credit Paleo For Beginners: Go to steakhouses. Go eat out at a steakhouse where you’re pretty sure every meal, even the side dish, are paleo-friendly. Steakhouses, aside from the obvious steaks, they also provide baked potatoes and seasoned vegetables. At steakhouses, most if not all, dishes are straight-…

Buying Auto Insurance for Dummies!

Car insurance is important but picking the right coverage can be confusing to new car owners. You need to understand all types of coverage to be able to use and save money wisely.
Liability Insurance This insurance is a requirement everywhere unless your state offers other options (e.g. posting a surety bond of a certain amount), and if you take the option, you have to purchase a liability insurance.
This covers damages to another person’s property and injuries suffered by another in a car accident. Each state authorizes own liability insurance requirements and they don’t require you to carry more than $100,000 bodily injury coverage and $25,000 property damages coverage per accident. However, on more serious accidents, that may require more money. The worth of your personal assets should reflect the amount of liability insurance you need, but experts agree you need no less than $300,000 bodily injury protection and $100,000 property damage protection.
Further Kinds of Auto Coverage After…

How To Pick a Car Insurance Company? We'll Teach You How!

Here are some seven steps to help you on picking the perfect car insurance company. Keep in mind that these are not step-by-step as you can start which ever you feel right.
Verify Company’s state licensure It is wise to visit first your state’s department of insurance to know the list of providers who are legal to sell insurance. Request a hard copy list from the office or go online on their official website.
Determine whether to buy locally or nationally Almost all local insurance agencies are branches of national chains. Although, national insurance companies like Progressive and Geico do not have local offices. It’s essential to examine each kind of provider before making the decision. Part of that is to decide if it’s okay for you not to physically meet your agent or would you rather visit the agency to get the feel of it.
Hunt and Compare Rates Do efforts to save a lot of money by looking for the cheapest rates but still the same services. But remember, price is not the most important f…

Grocery List for Paleo Diet

And my grocery of fresh veggies and all right here! :) I stocked up on sweet potatoes as it is easier to cook and it fills me up longer :) i finally bought some spinach at I might cook on lunch time lol I wasn't able to buy cauliflower because it was a bit pricey and I did not saw any beautiful cauliflowers in the market hehehe I am not so sure if Dried Mushroom is allowed in Paleo Diet though.. I love mushrooms and since I cannot have most of my favorite food, I might as well stock up on foods that i like and I'm allowed to munch on hehe

Paleo Diet: To Try or Not to Try?

My friend introduced Paleo diet to me and now my nerd self cannot stop researching lol
So I just started to read about Paleo diet, i'm going to die! Lol okae so no milk, no grains, no processed foods and oh my gosh no legumes, my peanuts! Lol
Good side about this is i dont have any problems eating vegetables and fruits. I love veggies and fruits. I don't like meat too like pork and beef and other hard meat lol chicken is fine.
I have tried no grains diet it was nice i felt so light but today i sometimes eat white rice or brown rice or corn rice and after i read about paleo diet, i can't look at rice the same way again lol hahahaha and potatoes? I love potatoes and having said that i just ate sweet potatoes for lunch today. So sweet potatoes are fine but potatoes aren't, right?
It said that if i cant give up some foods, i should try limiting until i can completely give up. Im planning to cut out some food and then eventually stop eating them. I cant believe i cant eat peanu…

Happy Sundae!

Hi guys!
My apologies for not posting soon! I'm stuck with flu and  I've been in bed resting and working. I'm in a massage parlor waiting for my turn in about half an hour and while waiting, I thought I could squeeze in a blog post :)
It's a bummer not to be able to workout because I may be even more sick if I do. I miss running, walking and lifting weights. I eat rice as well because I need more energy so I will recover faster. I felt very sick during my mom's birthday dinner that I have no trouble in saying no to the yummy birthday cake ^_^ if I wasn't sick, I would have struggled and would have a hard time resisting temptation :)
Fast forward, I skipped church and just rest in the house. Watched lots of movies and episodes of my favorite series :)
So for everyone who are sick today, let's fight to get our health back on track! Enjoy your time off like what I did, spent it to enjoy the things I love :) don't let sickness drag you down. And always thank Go…
