Introductions / Hello I'm new here and new to Paleo
« on: December 27, 2013, 06:34:24 AM »
Hey all!

This is my 3rd week Paleo and I'm just looking for support, because I all hear from my family is "you are missing out, you should try this :)"

So why I went paleo? I'm fairly slim - 5'6" and 120lbs, I never had to work to keep weight down, but about 2 months ago ago I suddenly gained over 4lbs in 1 week, which I could not drop (I guess my metabolism has decided I'm old now), so I thought to try a diet, in addition to that I always had mild acne, sinus issues and digestive problems, and I always wanted to try all-bad-things-exclusive diet, but never could stick to it for more than 2 days. A week of paleo showed a major improvement in my sinus and skin, and I lost those nasty 4 lbs. I never could breathe as easily and people started complimenting my glowing skin. I decided I'll never go back to normal (or abnormal?) diet. I don't do cheat days, because obviously I cannot tolerate something, and I'm not risking putting it back in me. I made lot of mistakes, but I don't sweat it, I just avoid those mistakes as I move on. I work, so I allow myself to eat cafeteria meats, fish, soups and salads. As long as they are roasted without gravy and look very simple. I found few good and easy recipes that I make over weekends and enjoy through the week. I have a family with 2 kids, I cook non-paleo for them and paleo for myself. I do work out, but I'm very lazy, and need motivation.
