One Month Paleo
 
30 days of Paleo and lost 13 pounds. It was rather effortless. I didn't count calories and ate whatever I wanted.

Weight is slowing a bit so I will have to tighten any binge eating tendencies, but in the long run I can see how it would be incredibly difficult to gain rapid fat eating like this.

I feel great.

I have had fits losing weight this past year for the first time in my life. On the Paleo I have no carb cravings at all. You have no idea how freeing this is.

I have always thought Paleo was rather restrictive, or at least more confusing than not. "Is this paleo?" "Did cavepeople eat this?" I suppose if you have a list of acceptable foods it might be pretty foolproof but damn...the no coffee thing stops me right there.

I drink coffee. I haven't noticed any insulin spikes. But I might exit it sometime.

Restrictive...well for me it was freeing. I always avoided fat. Now I am eating bacon and butter and cheese and losing weight. I am cooking broccoli in butter.

My food actually tastes good now. My meals are crazy satisfying.

Fantastic results Steve!

Have to say, I'd miss my potato, so I'd never be able to stick with it.

I tried a French diet thing before the holidays...high fat, etc. I ended up ballooning up. It was horrible. But I enjoyed the food while it lasted.
