You can be a healthy, functional human being with small amounts of grains and oats in your diet. To say that Paleo is the only way is a bold statement that I don't necessarily agree with. I think its important to find what works for you and to stick with it.
Do your research, ask questions, try them. There are fads out there that are wacky and I don't view Paleo as one of them. From time to time you may see me eating brown rice, oats or even ice cream! I'm human, if you ask I'll give you my opinion, their is research out there that backs up a lot of ideas and valid points, but I feel like you have to find what works for you as an individual.
I've seen a lot of people see huge weight loss success with things from weight watchers, Body by Vi, Advocare, Atkins etc... These are all stepping stones and useful in peoples health journey. The main idea of this post is to open your mind about the way you fuel your body, food is energy and it's important that what you put in it is helping you meet your goals and not hindering it. Nutrition is 80% of the equation and if you're missing your mark there, it will clearly show in how you feel, your recovery and performance. Make good decisions and if you need some extra information or want some ideas, let me know!
