Episode 387: Starting AIP on a Budget

Episode 387: Starting AIP on a Budget Welcome back to The Paleo View!(0:40) Stacy is so excited; life is great. Matt and Stacy went through some hard times in life for a while, and she is in awe to be going through a really great season in life right now. Sarah's family made two resolutions together as a family. The first is to do an outdoor activity together as a family every weekend. The second is that they would do meditations together as a family, and they are using theapp Headspacefor this. They are doing them before bed, and for five minutes. Stacy is excited to help Barbara this week. A reader question came in that inspired this week's episode and is a unique challenge for both Stacy and Sarah to answer. Sarah loves the idea of getting back to basics and talking about what it is like to start AIP for someone who is new. Listener Question Barabara is 75 years old and is on social security. She wants to do the autoimmune protocol, and her question is: How can I do the AIP diet? Where do I begin? Sarah thinks it is awesome to take a step back and to talk about where it is best to put that initial effort at first. One of the things that most resonated with Stacy when starting her AIP journey, was to think about what she is adding in versus what she is taking out. The thought process is that we're adding in nutrient density. As a reminder, nutrient density is that for every calorie you are eating you are maximizing the amount of nutrients you can get for that food. That the food is high in fiber, or other minerals and vitamins, different kinds of things that are adding value to your health. We are adding in nutrient density to nourish and heal our bodies so that we can feel our best. The Starting Point As someone who is just starting and where to begin, we are just trying to nourish the body to feel it's best and taking away the things that cause the inflammation and the auto-immune systems. A diet is not healthy or unhealthy based on what you avoid. So Sarah likes to talk about any diet from the standpoint of what we eat, versus what we avoid. Sarah thinks that as we go through the steps on where to start with AIP, it is very helpful to adopt a positive focus on what we do get to eat. It is a subtle shift in mindset, but it can make all the difference. We need to not just think about the autoimmune protocol, but the mindset around food in general. This sets us up for a journey, as opposed to a dietary intervention that is going to be on for a while and then off. Working to find a maintenance diet that is going to work for you as an individual is key. AIP is designed as a thorough template to get to that point. Lists & Labels Sarah feels that the next step is food lists.(12:12) It is necessary information to know what to eat and what to avoid. There are free lists on Sarah's site, and inthis eBookthere are very thorough lists as well. Sarah created thateBookto be very comprehensive to expedite the application of AIP. From there, Sarah thinks developing the skillset of reading food labels is important. Using the food lists to inform you, and then reading labels to build awareness. Go through the pantry, and put anything to the side that is Paleo but not AIP. Even those who aren't necessarily new to AIP will find it very helpful to revisit ingredient lists and check the prep details with restaurants. Stacy likes to think of AIP as an elimination diet to see what works and what doesn't work for your body. The goal is for it be for a set amount of time to help your body to heal. It doesn't have to be a forever thing. Meal Planning & Prep Sarah likes to put her AIP lecture series students through an exercise to help with this process. The students look at the meals they already eat that are very close to AIP, and look for the little swaps they can make to adapt the recipe to be fully AIP. Look at what you are already cooking and love and look at where you can make a small change. You can build from there once you have t

Welcome back to The Paleo View!(0:40) Stacy is so excited that both she and Sarah were able to take a bit of time off around the holidays. She hopes it was as restful for Sarah as it was for her! Yes, Sarah took a real break. Her family went winter camping and she completely disconnected and fell off the grid.

Episode 384: Healthy Strategies for the Whole Family

Hello listeners and welcome back to The Paleo View!(0:40) It's the last Paleo View episode of 2019. This episode is being pre-recorded so that Stacy and Sarah can take some time off for the holidays. Episode 384 was inspired by another great listener question. Sarah is most looking forward to family time during the kids' time off from school. They planned family adventures for their time together. On a related cord, on this week's episode, Stacy and Sarah will be discussing how to not just spend time together as a family, but how to also heal together as a family. This is something very near and dear to Stacy's heart, as they have started to purchase experiences instead of gifts. The Question This is a question from an international listener from London. (3:48) Hey ladies! So I listen to your show every week in the car and I think you are FABULOUS. Real, authentic, informative and on point.

Episode 383: Anxiety

Welcome back to The Paleo View, episode 383.(0:40) We are talking about anxiety this week! Inspired by a listener's question, Stacy and Sarah will be discussing generalized anxiety disorder. It was fascinating for Sarah to research this topic because of her family's history with generalized anxiety. Matt has been formally diagnosed with anxiety and does therapy and medication to help him with both his anxiety and his depression. When Matt and Stacy switched to a paleo diet it did help him reduce his medication. However, Stacy wants to put it out there that there is nothing wrong with the various things that you need to do to maintain your quality of life. Between modern medicine and the various treatment options available, please do not have shame or negative emotions associated with any of this. You are not alone and there is no stigma. What Stacy and Sarah are going to talk about today, you have their support and there are people in your life who will support you in making changes...

Episode 382: Social Media

Welcome back to episode 382 of The Paleo View!(0:40) This week, Stacy is talking about a topic that is top of mind for a lot of people. However, we often talk about this but don't actually do anything about it. Stacy's hope is that through the science, discussion and recommendations, change for both the end of 2019 and the new year ahead will be inspired. With the new decade, it is a chance to refresh and revamp. Sarah and Stacy laughed about their year changing memories, especially the Y2K days. Social Media Evolution In the early 2000s, social media was a great way to connect with people you lost touch with. There are so many different social media platforms these days, and new ones are always being launched. For the purpose of this week's show, Facebook and Instagram will be referenced, but the tips apply across all platforms. Social media is a constant evolution, but the principles remain the same. You are interacting with people in the way they want you to interact with them; i...

Episode 381: Is Breakfast the Most Important Meal of the Day?

Welcome back to episode 381!(0:40) This is the episode where Stacy's heart will be broken as they discuss if breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Before diving in, Stacy wants to lay the groundwork and stress the importance of bio-individuality. Stacy doesn't have a gallbladder and she has learned that breakfast is very difficult for her in the morning. Through trial and error, she has learned how to boost her digestion and get things going so that she can eat an early lunch. However, she would love to know how to improve this situation for herself personally. This show was inspired by a listener's question and this is a topic that Sarah has blogged about before and is excited to discuss here as well. The effect of eating in the morning is tangentially looking at intermitting fasting research. Not to spoil the conclusion of the show, but after digging into the latest research - yes, breakfast is really important. Sarah naturally leans towards sumo dieting. This is an eat...

Episode 380: Eating Paleo for Two

Welcome back to episode 380, where we are going to try so hard to not be the longest podcast.(0:40) For those who are listening to this in America - happy Thanksgiving! Stacy hopes that everyone had a wonderful holiday with your family. This was Sarah's first Thanksgiving as an American. Stacy saw Frozen 2 and recommends it to others; she really enjoyed it. This week's episode is about food cravings while you are pregnant. Listener's Question Here is a question that Stacy and Sarah received that sparked the topic for this week's show (5:11): Since becoming pregnant, I have felt nauseous all day, every day, and the thought of food has been unappealing. All of my regular Paleo foods, which I loved eating before, seem revolting. I am craving food that is sweet like juice and fruit, which is not something I ate a lot of before. I also crave bread and fast food. I am loving the salty and greasy foods and so far have found Paleo substitutions, but I know that is not healthy either. Do you...

Episode 379: Let's Talk About Coffee

Stacy and Sarah are back again, with Sarah leading the charge this week.(0:40) Sarah likes to think of last week's episode as a hodgepodge. When Stacy structured last week's episode she wanted it to be a catch-up show that was worth listeners' time, and she hopes everyone enjoyed it! This week's episode is about coffee. Coffee has come up in probably half of the episodes because Stacy and Sarah so commonly receive questions around that topic. Before diving in, Stacy thanked this week's sponsor, Clean Coffee Company.
