I’m not a huge fan of diets because they have never worked for me in the past and I simply can’t stick to them either, especially after I’ve lost my weight, too. But even if I were passionate about a certain fad or if I decided to go gluten-free or vegan, would I have my family follow my same dietary restrictions? Honestly, I’m not sure but I’ve seen plenty of mothers who have done so with varying results as well.
Australian mum Shaun Cooper has revealed that she has put her daughter Grace on a strict Paleo diet and for her the results have been very positive. The Paleo diet, which is very popular with all the CrossFit enthusiasts out there (you know who you are), eliminates diary and processed food and basically has you eating the same way cavemen ate many centuries ago. Shaun doesn’t give Grace any bread or carbs or sugar and so far she says it’s working for her because the 13-month-old tot has only been sick once in her life (but then again she’s only 13 months old).
Speaking to Daily Mail Australia, Shan said, “She spends a lot of time around other kids who are sick all the time — who have snotty noses, coughs, colds — but she just doesn’t pick it up. It’s certainly not because I’m shielding her from any of that stuff. I absolutely think a nutrient-dense diet is giving her a strong immune system.”
