I do paleo and I think it’s a pretty good way of eating.  One of hte great things about it is that it translates pretty well to my DH who eat’s whatever.  Basically paelo means eat meat, fruits, and veggies, plenty of fat, and no processed foods.  DH is alwasy happy with a dinner of steak and roasted veggies!

However, with a history of an eating disorder, do you think it’s healthy for you to diet?  I know paelo is a “lifestyle” but still…

I’ve recommited to doing it again because when I followed the program I did see results. For me the key to success was pre-planning. The reason why I’ve struggled with my weight was not having a plan. You get used to eating what you want, when you want without regard. Paleo made me become conscientious about what I going to shop for and eat. I had to think about options especially when eating out. The first few weeks are the most challenging, but after that it gets easier. It’s definitely not a diet persay it is a lifestyle.

I am! I check out marks daily apple.com every day! My regime has changed a lot lately as I’m pregnant (more carbs- white rice and potatoes).

There are a few of us who have been doing it recently.  I did it 7 weeks before my wedding and lost a dress size (or 2, depending o the brand.)  I’ve kept it up ever since though and I feel so much better (and have to buy all new jeans and dresses now.)

You can read through this thread for my and other Bee’s experiences.  also the Whole 9 website mentioned by a PP is great.  I read their book as well, but not until after I had finished the whole 30, I wanted to experience it for myself before being influenced by science.

I have been paleo for just over 3 years and I love it! I used to struggle with ED, and I can honestly say that I don’t feel restricted or triggered by eating Paleo AT ALL. All of my choices feel wonderful, food is gratifying and guilt-free. I never feel sluggish or ill after eating like I used to. I started because of terrible gallstones and a cholecystectomy at 23. I lost weight from the surgery, but as I slowly reintroced myself to paleo foods, it stayed off and I started to feel incredible. I’m 5’6″ and now I sit around 119-122 lbs. The paleo posts on pinterest and tumblr will keep you occupied forever! 

My SO is the FARTHEST thing from paleo — He lives off carbs and junk, and cannot seem to gain a pound. I typically make a LOT of meat and seafood, which he is always happy about, and I will mix it up occasionally with extra lean paleo beef/pork stir fry or meatloaf. There are a ton of recipes on everydaypaleo.com and nomnompaleo.com. I always make rice/pasta/potatoes/beans for him on the side. I don’t even think about it anymore, it’s become a daily dinner routine and we couldn’t be happier!
