Back to this whole Paleo thing...
« on: March 23, 2016, 12:13:43 PM »
Long story short, I got into paleo years ago when I was an endurance runner and competed in BJJ.  It worked great for me and I loved it.  Mainly followed stuff from Robb Wolf's book.

Later I had a bad car accident which left me pretty sedentary, I put on 60 lbs, got diagnosed with low T, blah, blah, blah.

So I'm back in the gym doing a beginners version of Westside three times a week and some hiking or spin class two days a week.

My wife and I are hopping back on a modified paleo starting Monday (we are easing into this week), but I'm keeping my protein drinks as they have always delivered results (switching from cow to almond milk) and I'm keeping garbanzo beans.

Any advice or issues with my plan?  Any big developments in paleo research the last 5 years or so?

Sounds great.  I have trouble putting weight on.  Have a build similar to Michael Phelps - my struggle has always been not being skinny as heck.  So I have to shovel food into my mouth.  I wish I learned this when I was 14-16 instead of 24-26 .. would've been stronger/better at sports in high school.

Keep us updated!  How is your wife doing with fitness/diet as well?  That's always tough

I'm pretty impressed with her.  I taught her the basic lifts and she is doing it along with me.

Going back paleo has been something I wanted to do for awhile, but it's difficult to do when the wifey is baking fresh bread and sweets all the time.  She actually brought it up for us to make the change this time.
