how can i possibly live paleo??

it's time to tighten the belt, literally and figuratively speaking.

DS's graduation is on the horizon and i want to look decent for the pictures i'll be blasting ALL OVER THE PLACE.

i recently gained a few lbs in my new-found comfort of an amazingly loving relationship. i'd like to drop these lbs and maybe an extra 5-10... for a total of 15-20 (ideally... in a perfect world).

i've heard over and over that paleo is the way to go for rapid, healthy weight loss.

but can I do it??!! i love nothing more than a lot of the foods that are non-paleo.

how can a carb-loving, baker's daughter do this?

what are the "cheats" i should know to make this happen?

I would love to know how as well.
I have been trying for over a year. Each month I say I'm going paleo. I last 1-7 days :(
I don't cook so I think it's harder for me. I also don't like many veggies and most fish.
Plus no support from my husband to hand eating habits.

I've been Paleo for almost a year now and it's a lot of work. A lot of prep and planning. But, completely do-able if you're really dedicated. Most Paleo peeps I know follow the 80/20 rule. I stay more 90/10 because of food allergies and sensitivities. If you're really interested I recommend the book Practical Paleo by Diane SanFillipo. There are a bunch of meal plans in the back of the book, along with the recipes. I originally got it from the library, but have since bought my own copy.


*ETA: I didn't lose a ton on the scale, however, my body composition completely changed. I was down two full dress sizes in my first 30 days, even though the scale didn't show anything extraordinary.

You lose weight by eating less calories than you burn.
You don't have to go paleo.

Just join My Fitness Pal and figure out your calorie goals.

You don't have to do paleo to lose weight--if you want to go this route check out the book The whole 30. It is a 30 program. They have a website too.

I know this is not what you asked but- this is perhaps the funniest thing I have read in years. (Paleo related so not TOTALLY off topic!)

Thank you for the laugh!!!

I'm Paleo AIP, & not by choice, but because I have an autoimmune disorder & I want my health to improve! In addition to Paleo, there are other foods I can't have, like eggs, nuts, tomatoes, peppers, etc....so this totally cracked me up! It's a lot of prep & planning, so I'd never do Paleo for wt loss, I'd exercise & make better food choices.

OMG, I cried reading this! Hysterical!

I don't really follow it anymore, but I am a big fan of Paleo. Yes, its true, as someone stated "calories in=calories out" however, what I like about Paleo is it stopped my cravings. I wasn't starving all the time. It's a whole lot easier to stick to a prescribed number of calories if you're not starving and craving bread. Tha's why people fail on diets, they're hungry.

The Paleo people usually say try to stick to like an 80% rule. It's not hard, really. I would eat meats, fruits and vegetables and a lot of nuts. I personally ate potatoes as well.

I honestly don't like a lot of foods and i don't drink so it's pretty easy for me. I haven't really been doing it hardcore anymore, but when I did I felt 100x better, I never had stomach pains and gas like I do when I eat processed junk, but I LOVE bread. LOVE. and didn't want to be so restrictive. I still do some of the recipes and I still TRY to not eat processed foods, but again, there are some things I enjoy that I don't want to give up

How do you do it?? There are some days I crave meat so much!!! With eggs/dairy/nuts/legumes out, I'm not sure how I'd feel satisfied without meat.

I was vegetarian for many years prior. Recently had been strict vegan for about a year. So the transition wasn't hard for me. I eat tons of fresh fruits and veggies.
