I struggle with cravings a lot - especially sugar cravings. It's hard to get off sugar completely, because I find, even if I have a little bit of fruit, the cravings come back.
My craving cheats are:
- have a big cup of herbal tea
- distract myself: put the TV on, pick up a book/magazine
- go out for a walk
- work out!
Hope that helps!Help me on my paleo journey - follow my blog at http://paleoonthecheap.wordpress.com

I find that quite often you can ask the waitress to make a swap for you - eg, fries for salad, hold the dressing - without too much fuss.
I ate at Giraffe in London recently and managed to get them to do half a chicken, cole slaw and sweet potato fries... it was great

I eat when I'm hungry. While I don't count carbs, I only eat carbohydrates in limited amounts of fruit and in incidental amounts in nuts, of which I usually choose the highest fat varieties, so my carbohydrate iintake is very limited.
There are three main differences between paleo and Atkins: paleo does not allow dairy; paleo allows unlimited fruit and vegetables, though you may want to limit fruit if you want to maximize weight loss; paleo does not allow you to gradually return to the standard bad diet, as Atkins does in its supposed maintenance phase.
do you eat as much as you want anytime, or just at mealtime? Do you have to count carbs? and what distinguishes this from the Atkins diet?
Thanks for your response.

Thanks! I love spinach - I'm going to try to slowly reintroduce the caul/broc/brussels - but one at a time and not every day - Still amazed at how well I sleep now! I am enjoying this journey!

Spinach, onions, and carrots would probably be okay.

Good morning all - only 2 months in to this new way of eating - I realized I have big problems with Broccoli, Cauliflower, Brussels sprouts - I love these - and I think I was overdoing it with them - I was eating at least one of them with just about every meal - and I ended up in so much stomach pain - I started reading various posts and online sources and noted that some folks do have sensitivities to them and that they can be contra indicated for folks that are hypothyroid! Backed off - as in I'm not eating them at all and I feel much better - I am now taking digestive enzymes as well as a probiotic by Jarrow - My stomach feels much better! I do eat lots of eggs, beef, pork, fish, chicken, and I love lamb (have always been all about the fat!). Any suggestions as to veggies I can eat (other than lettuce)?

I have actually been on this paleo journey for about a month now after getting some information from my mother-in-law and then doing some further research. It has been a bit of a journey thus far. I have been a little bit over weight for quite a bit of time now but I started having health issues going on about a year and half ago with my thyroid and my female hormones being out of balance. It has taken me this long to find away to help myself and I need some accountability in the process. My first major goal is to get through the 30 day challenge and then after that, meet my short term goals so that I can reach my ultimate goal and that is to lose 115lbs.
I wish the best of luck to everyone!
