I’m a romance writer who began to see the pounds quickly accumulate due to the nature of my work and whose eating habits had devolved into horrible food choices. I shudder now thinking of some of my ‘lunch’ choices (a hotdog from the general store on the corner, mini chocolate donuts, a bag of white cheddar popcorn and a Coke Zero had been known to happen, not every day, but still).
Already 20 pounds overweight, when I put on 10 pounds in 1 year (and all in my belly–I looked like I had a baby bump) I decided to do something about it.
What this site is and is not
I’m not a doctor or a health practitioner so I will not be originating any theories or advice here. Anything of that nature will be from other sources. There’s also plenty of paleo/primal blogs to follow for recipes, medical advice and the like, that I don’t see how I can contribute to that stream of awesome knowledge. However, I do see a need for ways to practically implement this lifestyle into a busy writer’s life, and so my posts will be geared toward the challenges of eating paleo/primal as a writer.
If you’re interested, I have one novelette published, Beer and Groping in Las Vegas, a geek romantic comedy, as well as several novels looking for a publisher (my agent is busy working that end). If you’d like to know more, my website is: www.angelaquarles.com
