If you’ve read this blog in the past, you’ll know that I view many of the situations our culture terms “failures” as absolutely fantastic opportunities.

Situations where we have had an outcome opposite to the one we want are chock-a-block full of data.

If, following a “failure”, we put our analyzing hats on, we can discern patterns and triggers that lead to the unwanted outcome. We can then predict our behavior ahead of time based on this information and devise strategies to encourage, or even force, different behavior in future.

I’ve been mulling the whole paleo/weight management/overeating thing recently and it’s been taking me to a new area of my local library.

But let me rewind a little.

Recently at an airport, as is my wont, I bought a book for the flight home. I was reviewing the tomes on the racks wondering which, of all these wonderful sounding titles that told me they would change my life, to buy, when my eyes alerted upon the words “Who Says I’m An Addict?”. I bought it.

Are you struggling with your commitment to eating paleo? Is your family sabotaging you by bringing home foods they (and you) love but which are most definitely not part of the paleo template? Are you forcing them to eat paleo, telling yourself it is for their own good, but they are kicking and screaming all around the dinner table?
