    Default Going paleo any advice?

    I'm going paleo because it sounds sexier then just eating right.

    Anybody else doing it?

    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!

    Soo...its basically eating a balanced diet of unprocessed food with a name you can show off to your friends...?

    Edit: Do I have to turn in my man card for looking at this thread?

    I actually said that exact thing in my first post.

    Turn in your man card for being a dick who doesn't read.

    Haha Personally I don't "name' diets, and think the idea of doing so is restrictive, but for the purposes of this thread it's helpful. To me, the most irritating thing about the whole idea of "naming" a diet is that guys start cutting foods out because they don't fit the criteria of the particular diet that they follow.

    "Fancy an apple, bro?"
    "No way man, I'm legit paleo, fruit's off limits, pass the steak."

    Hope the diet's going well CRisCO!

    You have to turn in your man card and exchange it for a douche card.

    this is definitely what Paleo is...what's hysterical to me is how clowns like Robb Wolf will denounce any and all grains, including pseudo-grains like quinoa and buckwheat which contain no gluten and could be eaten raw once soaked, yet he's OK with drinking alcohol every day...yeah like that was around back in the day...also if you read that Wiki article (not that it's a good sourcE) but it denounces a lot of stupid shit that Paleo dudes promote...

    in my practice we utilize a paleo diet but we NEVER call it that. we cut it all the processed food and bread because wheat is the devil, but we don't let it get a name because all of these have some sort of connotation associated with them.
