But What About Energy?
People are often concerned that without grains, they will have no energy. This makes sense from what standard nutritional thinking has been but it’s nice to say this is nothing to worry about. You can get all the energy you need from the rest of the food system. Trust me. I have experienced it personally and have heard countless testimonials of increased energy from removing grains from the diet. There are also plenty of athletes who utilize the Paleo approach. If athletes don’t suffer energy issues, the normal person has nothing to worry about.
