paleo newbie
« on: October 05, 2016, 06:33:18 PM »
Is there anyone on here that has some tips to a newbie, about staying on track and keeping it going. I am only five days in and so far I love love love it. But my family is not on board and I fear falling off the wagon

I would suggest arming yourself with a good book or two on the Paleo diet. This way you have a few recipes on hand and also have some good background information when needing to defend what you are doing. The best defense is when you notice and they notice changes in your health whether it is weight, energy level, skin, sleep, or all of the above.  The book I started out with is The Paleo Diet by Loren Cordain. I'm about 5 books deep now but this book is probably the best first one to read. Also, no need to call it Paleo. You can just say I'm trying to eat a natural whole foods diet that is gluten free. Or, I'm just working on cleaning up my diet a bit.

Good answer by tilley -

I'll throw in it's very valuable on ANY diet to keep the food you want to eat in plentiful close distance to yourself at all times.
Never hurts to have jerky, fruit, almonds, or whatever you want to focus on nearby in case hunger or cravings arise.

Good luck and stick around!
