Re: Coworker came to me for advice

For someone who has been eating a pretty poor diet and is just falt out new to it all, IMO, it is MUCH better to first explain to them that food quality and choices are the most important part of the diet. You can eat only 1 scoop of ice cream and t whole wheat sandwitch and 1 serving of cereal a day and be skinny but you WILL NOT be healthy. I would go back to him and explain what Paleo is and that the first thign he should do is focus on making better food choices. Clean out the kitchen, pantry and go buy healthy food. You can print off a grocery list from Robb Wolfs website under FAQ's and tell him to have balanced meals with proteins, veggies and fats. By changing the quality it will be easier to dial in quantity once he sees results.
