I just started this with SO 10 days ago.  He is doing it to lose weight. I’m doing it to support him.  So far he has lost 10lbs (!) which is great!  I, however, have gained 4lbs. So I’m thinking it might not be for me :-p.

@canuckandakiwi:  I’ve been on Paleo(ish) for 2 years now (yay!)

I dropped weight effortlessly right off the bat then when I got to what I consider my healthy weight I automatically plateaued and stayed there.  I’ve gone up a bit since then, I think mostly due to cheating with sugary foods (chocolate covered jube jubes, you are my nemisis!) on too regular a basis. 

The fact that I auto-plateaued once I reached a healthy (not model-esc, but skinny) weight is one of the things that convinced me that this is the right way to eat for my body.

@canuckandakiwi:  I mostly feel like it’s just the way I eat and avoiding non paleo things feels like hte normal “watching what I eat.”  I do cheats at times.

@canuckandakiwi:  I just started Paleo on Monday, with my workout group. We did “before” pictures, weigh in, and measurements before our workout. Of course, I also got sick (stomach bug) the same day. I cheated with some chicken noodle soup, and then had some wheat toast and peanut butter becuase it was the only thing I could keep down.

As of Tuesday I started full force. I did have to miss today’s workout, and will most likely have to miss Friday’s workout too since I’m still under the weather.

I’m really curious as to what kinds of results I should see. QUESTION: For those of you eating Paleo – are you also working out to see results or did you just change your eating?

@canuckandakiwi:  I’ve been indulging a little too often lately!  But yeah, I don’t see it as being very different than a typical person who tries to “eat healthy.”  Cutting out grains is actually not too hard in our low-carb-friendly society.

I only started paleo in October, and lost 10 pounds in 2 months. Then I took a month off for the holidays, and only gained two pounds back. I’ve lost those two pounds and then some since getting engaged, and eating quasi-paleo. I eat paleo when I can, but when I can’t, I don’t stress about it. It’s worked really well for me so far.

@canuckandakiwi:  I’ve been doing primal/paleo for a few years now, but nto to lose weight. I do it for my health. My best friend’s DH went strictly primal once, and lost almost 30lbs in 1 month, without excercising once.

Unfortunate that paleo has to even have a name or be considered a diet– when in reality it’s just real, normal food.

@canuckandakiwi:  That’s really good to know! I started it Monday with my workout group. Irgonically the SAME day I got sick (thought maybe the flu, turns out to be a really bad head cold). I normally do an hour workout M/W/F, and while I got Monday in, I’m missing W/F. I’ve stuck to Paleo despite being sick with the exception of Monday night (my first night) and Tuesday morning when I had to eat some toast because it was all I could keep down. I was really really upset that I’m missing my workouts this week and hoping that it wouldn’t negatively effect my weight loss too much.

The hardest thing about Paleo to me is that I’m a PICKY eater…and I hate most veggies. Surprisingly I haven’t missed bread too much this week – eating a lot of lettuce wraps…lol. Going to try my hand at spaghetti squash this week!
