  • 1. CAN I HAVE MANGO? THE PALEO LIFESTYLE in a Culturally-Sensitive weight loss and detoxification program Author: Michelle Edmonds, M.A., M.Ed. Sr. Nutritionist|Author|Co-Founder FB/serenityweightloss More Information about the author The SERENITY CHALLENGE© |The Serenity Weight Loss and Detoxification Program©, 1992 All rights reserved
  • 2. We love the PALEO Lifestyle but it raises different questions for different cultures For instance, below is an American ethnic favorite! TIP: Not Paleo Follow our recipe board @ SERENITY CAFE on Pinterest Our Seminar and Conference Schedule: FALL DETOX COURSE
  • 3. Technically PALEO, but you killed it, really dead!
  • 4. THE WHITE SHEET (Level I Modified PALEO) Exception: this list excludes FRUIT, potatoes, corn, beets and all beans (legumes) You may include carrots, but ONLY if as part of a vegetable mix or in salads. ● Wild caught­deep water fish, such as salmon (including canned red or pink), Pollock, tuna, swordfish, Basa, Sea Bass , etc (Avoid farm­raised fish, such as Tilapia & catfish) ● Chicken cutlets, frozen hot wings, rotisserie chicken ● All veggies, including avocado, eggplant, mushrooms ● Salad (Avoid iceberg lettuce) ● Hummus (Technically cheating: Serenity uses to enhance the protein value of turkey lunch meat wraps) ● Turkey cold cuts (from butcher is best) ● Whole eggs (not egg whites) ● Cooking: Extra Virgin Olive oil and all nut oils, such as walnut.No canola or vegetable oil Treats: All berries and seeds: sunflower and pumpkin seeds
  • 5. THE NO SHEET This is NOT PALEO~Cave Men did not eat waffles, sprinkled with white sugar!
  • 6. Serenity’s Level II Paleo Eating Just like your ancestors, your eating evolves Ground meats in moderation, cave men did not have food grinding equipment and it appears to be the inferior parts of the animal. Grind yourself or watch while the butcher grinds the cuts you choose
  • 7. BLUE SHEET All white sheet foods Plus: Duck, Fresh Whole Turkey, Lamb Grass­fed pork, such as pork loin Grass­fed, bison, organic lean beef, such as a medium ~ rare steak or philly steak slices
  • 8. Fruit and Nuts Plums, nectarines, peaches, apples, grapes almonds, pecans, walnuts, basically all fancy mixed nuts (Pistachios are OK ~ Add-in cashews last)
  • 9. Milk Substitutes Almond and Coconut Milk (Avoid the Soy, which is from beans and Rice Milk, which is from grain
  • 10. FEEDING TIMES We know everyone is busy, but never, ever change your meal frequency or your body will return to storing fat again Eat 6, but no less than, 5 mini meals per day each with a protein and vegetable. Schedule: Within 1 hour upon arising, 12 noon, 3 p.m. 6 p.m. and again @ 9 p.m. If staying up past midnight, keep going. Yes, keep going because you are!
  • 11. Ok cave man (wo~man) we just said each meal must have a veggie and a protein, or your body does not have the enzymes needed to use the protein source. However, you may cook your meat!! (medium rare or medium done~ no more well-done, charbroiling or frying)
  • 13. It’s makes no sense to allow yourself to gain weight or have creepy crawly weight loss, simply because you are meal sleeping.. uh.. I mean skipping
  • 15. Pace Yourself and Plan: Unless you don’t mind chewing and drinking constantly, there is really not much time to consume snacks.
  • 16. THE WISDOM OF THE BODY If you find that you are meal skipping, it is most likely due to portions that are too large.
  • 17. Your body is talking to you all the time...LISTEN! If portions are small enough, nature will give you a hunger nudge naturally about every 3 hours
  • 18. NON PALEO EATING ALL Refined Sugars Some allow small amounts of honey or pure maple syrup - but this was a very rare treat. ALL Grains- including corn Foods that cannot be eaten raw. They require soaking or long term slow cooking *Sorry: Wheat barley, rye and oats are all grains that contain gluten
  • 19. “Starchy” Root Vegetables In general, you would avoid the following because they need to be soaked to be consumed or they are poisonous if not cooked: All Potatoes, YAMS* Pumpkin Cassava, Manioc Beets ● As a culturally sensitive PALEO program, we say “Yes” to sweet potatoes, but no candied yams! Sweet Potatoes are a controversial area PALEO area Legumes (Beans, Peanuts) These are omitted on the premise that they cannot be eaten without cooking, and that legumes have a high content of lectins (poison) and other anti~nutrients.
  • 20. About Soft-shell pods (Peas, green beans, string beans are controversial). Since we are a culturally-sensitive PALEO program, we say, consume these veggies, just keep your foot on the brakes, but don’t wear yourself out! LOL
  • 21. So you think, “Milk is the NATURAL”!
  • 22. THE DAIRY CONTROVERSY ~Just the facts and a caution~ CAVE MEN did not consume dairy products before animals were domesticated. Most authors of the PALEO lifestyle exclude dairy including milk, yogurt, ice cream, cheese, etc. However, they include butter and cream* This includes Dr. Joel Wallach Youngevity founder, * (because of the low lactose & casein) * We say: OK on occasion and butter for cooking.
  • 23. Which SHEET do you follow during a healing or after Weight Gain?
  • 24. Immediately return to WHITE SHEET for 14 days then transition back to BLUE SHEET Your treats are limited once again to Blueberries and Seeds During healing, rely on homemade soups that contain high protein, such as homemade chicken soup. Consider pureeing an entire meal, such as fish and veggies and eating as a soup
  • 25. EMERGENCY CARE Learn to keep emergency foods like homemade soup in the freezer, even if a lentil soup blended in a blender. If cheating starts excessively or does not slow down, stay at WHITE SHEET for 90 days, then try again If you GAIN weight following an illness, you did not eat properly
  • 26. PALEO WRAP RECIPES aleo­eating­on­run. html
