Hey! Does anyone else here follow a paleo diet? I am, and I have also cut nightshade plants. I notice a difference within the day. Would love to know how others are getting on!
Reason: Moved To Weight Loss Forum
But I took this paleo route in response to I.B.S and a natural progression to other lifestyle changes, and finding it quite easy and positive.
I am doing paleo, as well as calorie counting to make sure I'm not pushing past where I need to be. Because I just started with this I am easing into it. One Paleo meal a day this week, two next week, and then I am going to do the 30 day straight up paleo. I had great success with it in the past and it really made me feel good, but stress had me back to bad habits and that had me having to restart.
Let me know if you need some recipe sites and things :D
Its almost like a wholefood Atkins.
What would you do for breakfast? I'm finding that akward..
Eggs, vegetables, fruits, avocado, sausages, bacon, smoked salmon, black coffee, tea, almond or coconut milk, leftovers from last night's Paleo dinner, etc..
One paleo girl I know includes a baked sweet potato sprinkled with cinnamon with her breakfast to get herself going in the morning. She loves it because she takes it to work with her and just does it in the microwave there.
I grew up with a milk allergy so a lot of breakfast foods just don't appeal to me. Do love me some eggs though. I like eggs scrambled with mushrooms and artichoke hearts and a little garlic :D
Thanks for advice!
Hey there! Did you start Paleo? Hope you did! :)
I've been on Paleo for about 3 months now and I have to say I love it. At first I thought it was difficult having to cook so much more but the meals I've made are nothing short of delicious and satiating!
I had the "carb-flu" starting Paleo--for about 2 weeks I was so lethargic, had headaches for days in a row, and I could not concentrate on anything. I went from eating upwards of 300 g of carbs a day to less than 100.
I think Paleo is naturally low-carb which really helps with weight loss. Cutting out refined grains and sugar is the most important thing to burning fat. Fat won't make you fat! That was one of the first lessons I learned after reading Gary Taubes.
To learn more about Paleo, check out marksdailyapple.com (run by Mark Sisson; also read his book: The Primal Blueprint) and for other Paleo specific questions, head over to paleohacks.com where hundreds of others on Paleo are ready to help answer any questions.
Basically, after gaining so much weight after recovering from anorexia, Paleo has helped me to feel better. I think I'm slowly gaining a better composition (through lots of walking and weight lifting 2 times a week).
The most important thing I can say is: don't be afraid of fat, eat lots of meat, and enjoy life (which will definitely happen if you're on Paleo!).
