I eat as paleo as I can, with the exception of wholemeal toast (with poached eggs) in the morning, and if you a lot of grains or pasta/rice at the moment, you'll notice a HUGE difference in how you feel, and pretty quickly, but it might not all be good.
After I first started consciously cutting out most non-paleo foods I felt quite weak, because I wasn't getting the burst of sugar I was used to getting throughout the day. Depending on how
paleo you want to go (some people don't think fruit is a paleo food-type), fruit is a great way of combatting this, so keep an apple/pear/banana on you to munch on for the times when you feel like this.
Also, as I used to be a big fatboy (I was 205lbsishh and I'm now 150lbs - 205 is BIG for my frame), I still get big fatboy cravings, so I give myself one day a week to eat whatever I like. I used to call them "cheat days" until Mike Dolce pointed out that then you feel like you're doing something you shouldn't do, and they should instead be called "earned days", days on which you have earned the right to eat whatever you like, by either working out a sufficient amount or by being disciplined with your diet.
This really, really helps to surpress the urges you're bound to feel to neck a Mars bar or some pasta because I know that at worst I'm only ever 6 days away from eating as much crap as I like.
I hope this helps a little bit, let me/us know how you get on man!
