One way to stay motivated to get started and stick with the Paleo diet is to track your progress. For some people, this will solely be based on weight loss. But it’s a good idea to look beyond the numbers on the scale as you determine the effectiveness of the diet.
You can take photos of yourself at the beginning and then weekly to see if you can visualize any changes. You can also keep a journal about your energy levels, any health problems that you’ve experienced, and generally how you feel.
Seeing problems improve and getting closer to your goals will help you stay committed to the Paleo diet – even when it’s tempting to give up. The longer you do it, though, the better you’ll feel and the more results you’ll be able to document.
