    • Anonymous – the reason I can’t seem to get back on the Paleo wagon is because I keep getting mad about not being able to cheat and eat like everyone else. I get mad about me needing to meal prep and go through the trouble of preparing every meal. So even though my health is declining every week that I keep eating “the bad stuff” and it isn’t motivating me enough, but just gets me wound up even more. What can I do to find peace and accept my body and the fact that it just doesn’t like me eating non Paleo food?
      • Stacy stressed the importance of just focusing on you
      • Disengage from habits that cause you stress, i.e. comparing yourself to others or feeling pressured by what others are or are not doing
      • Reframing the “on the wagon” mentality to be more about a choice and owning the choices you are making
      • Stacy’s approach to how she incorporates the 80/20, and how this sets her up for success
      • Check out Real Life Paleo or 3 Phase Paleo and perhaps try developing a new approach on how to create balance and sustainability within your own life
      • How stress and lack of sleep can impact our choices
      • Perhaps not necessarily focusing on the food piece right now, but instead focusing on sleep quality and quantity
