Has anyone done this I am on my 2 month and I am pretty happy so far I have lost 21 Lbs, but was wondering if anyone else has been on this diet.


Good luck to all

This. I have a mostly paleo diet, but it's definitely a lifestyle. I was suffering from post partum depression when DS was 4 weeks old when my husband introduced me to it. It's been 6 months and I've lost 30 lbs, am not on any kind of medication, and I just FEEL healthy. This was a huge change for us and it's made all the difference.

Quoting ReadWriteLuv:

I don't like to call it a diet, it's a lifestyle.

Myself and Michiganmom are the two biggest proponents of Paleo that I know of in here. Eating this way just clicks with me.

I truly think any diet that promotes eating healthy, non-processed foods and work out, will cause you to lose weight.

Congratulations and good luck to you!

Do you have a list of what a typical week of dinners looks like for you guys?

Quoting michiganmom116:

My whole family eats this way, even the kids.  Their acne cleared up.  My failure to thrive child has grown 8 inches and put on 20 pounds and no longer has migraines or upset tummy multiple times a week...none at all. 

I try to eat Paleo meals at least 95% of the time although the family does like potatoes 2 to 3 times a week.  I'll give them that.  I also allow cheese & butter, sometimes sour cream if it's not full of things besides actual sour cream.

Most conventional nutritionists panic at the idea of a diet that omits all whole grains, refined sugars, and dairy.  They say it's very unhealthy.  I just wonder what they say to the people that have celiac disease or are allergic to dairy.   I have a cousin (by marriage) that has celiac disease and she's one of the healthiest people I know.  Whatever......

You'll love the cherry garcia smoothie:  1 can full fat unsweetened coconut milk, a couple of good sized handfuls of frozen sweet cherries.  Blend until the chunks of cherries are gone.  Top with shaved dark chocolate.

Taco soup:  I make up a homemade taco seasoning mix:  2 tsp chili powder, 1 1/2 tsp. dry onion flakes, 1 tsp. paprika, 1 tsp beef soup granules (no MSG, maybe some wheat but its miniscule and I'm not going to agonize over it), 3/4 tsp. sea salt, 1/4 tsp. garlic powder.....and my homemade ranch dressing mix.  I don't remember the proportions of that one.

sounds amazing once i get coconut milk i will try it... That was one of the biggest problems with paleo for my hubby is that he hates coconut but i used it for a lot of desserts and to use for cooking oil

No. But I've lost almost 30 pounds in 5 weeks as well by nothing more than a slight increase in exercise, and a more fruit filled diet
