Fat old guy who should know better log
« on: November 05, 2011, 02:50:29 AM »
Ok time for me to get serious. I know better. I am a chiropractor with post graduate training in paleo nutrition. Yet I'm out of shape and eat way too much sugary crap. So I'm here to get going again

I have been doing crossfit for about 6 months, and I'm getting fitter but not leaner. All my own fault.

So tonight I had hamburgers with salad, but yes I had bread. A little fruit. And a hard boiled egg

Alright! That's awesome you want to take the step to paleo eating! As a chiropractor you also act as a model to others.

The next step is to skip the bread and go for meat/fish with veggies, as you know.

A good thing might be to plan your meals ahead and do the shopping so you know what to have for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

What do you think is your biggest challenge with starting eating paleo and losing weight?

Also, throw out the bread and other nonpaleo foods, and don't replace it.

Thanks guys. Bread rice pasta etc is gone. Biggest hurdles are sweet foods and snacks at work! Cooked up a bunch of snacks for work tonight, so all done.

Today was 100% paleo, so far so good

In my personal experience it depends on the carrot / objective / whip that gets you going.

Some people have goals like... I want to look good because I want to...

Or for me, I've been very deathly sick and I do not want to be sick anymore... that is why I am on a RAW paleo diet.

What's your carrot / objective / whip?

What is in your Paleo pancakes?  If you are using nut flour, you are not helping yourself.  You would be far better of by not trying to make SAD foods out of Paleo like products.  Just eat good strong Paleo foods.

It looks like you started this about a month ago. How is your progress? Do you find yourself getting leaner and/or feeling better?

What has the hardest part of going Paleo Been? You mentioned you miss sweets, how is that going?

I leave cash and change at home and not even in my car. There is a vending machine about 30 feet away from my cubicle. It's easy to say that one candy bar won't hurt me.
