At this point, we've been eating Paleo for 6 weeks, weighing, measuring, and tracking our food for 5 weeks, and targeting specific macronutrient intake for 4 weeks. Hopefully you're experiencing some benefits in the form of improved body composition, better performance, and/or improved sense of health. At this point, I'd like to ask you to "scale up".
When we started, we selected scaling options on the Paleo and Macro scales. I'd like you to revisit these scaling options, and select one that matches your preferences for the final four weeks (continuing doing what you're doing is also an option). Some of you will be competing in the Open, and "in season" is no time to be calorie restricted, so choose a Macro target that supports recovery and performance (if you've been trying to lose fat and want to shift to fueling performance or recovery, add 100 calories to your daily target per week, until you get back to your baseline intake, or start gaining weight). Some of you are getting great results from incorporating more unprocessed foods in your diet, and for you I'd like to suggest removing some of the non-Paleo things that are still part of your routine, or even trying 100% Paleo for the final four weeks. Finally, some of you have been really diligent about being 100% Paleo, and for you I'd like to suggest considering a thoughtful reintroduction of foods you'd like to have in your life going forward.
One strategy for Paleo maintenance is to eat roughly 85% Paleo - meaning you eat consistent with your goals, but allow some non-Paleo things in roughly three meals per week. Another strategy is to pursue modified Paleo - where the bulk of your calories come from Paleo sources, but you allow for specific exceptions, like cream in your coffee, rice a few times a week, protein powders, or something similar. As you reintroduce non-Paleo items, pay attention to how you feel. You may notice a return of things you had always considered normal, but had gone away during the time you were eating pure Paleo (breakouts are a good example). If this is the case, you may want to consider keeping the offending item out of your diet. If you notice anything major, I'd highly suggest discussing it with your doctor.
