When I first started paleo, it took me months to get over the idea that bread was food.  It's not an easy adjustment to make.  Unfortunately, "paleo" baked goods just maintain the illusion, which it's better to kick as soon as possible.

If you're going to go paleo, your choices are low carb, ketogenic low carb, and fruitarian.  And fruitarian has major problems.

Hmmm. I never felt tired when i started the paleo diet. I guess you can say that my body adjusted pretty well to it. I think some people are going to react to change in their eating habits differently. Some will adjust fairly easy while others will have slight adjustment curves. Never the less if the fatigue persist you should definitely figure out whats going on. The paleo diet is suppose to make you feel healthier and more energetic not more sluggish.

Sorry to say that you will never succeed on paleo if a significant portion of your diet is comprised of "paleo baked goods" (no such thing to be honest), and you don't embrace meat and animal fat. From one bread addict to another, it's easier to go cold turkey on the baked goods and acclimate to eating meat, than to try to replace bread with almond-flour based products.

Ok so I am just becoming paleo. I have always been into fitness until I blew out my knew. I gained quiet a few pounds. I notice a lot of things I read say eat all the meat and veggies you want. My question is do I still need to worry about a calorie deficit to lose weight

Diet and nutrition / Paleo baked goods

Okay, a little background.  I have always, I mean always LOVED wheat!  I mean, I was a total wheat addict.  But when I heard that wheat could be causing this degusting "muffin top" thing I can't get rid of, and it could be giving me acne, I thought I might try paleo.  I have tried vegan, and that ended in disaster.  I hated vegan.  I tried it for 4 months, thinking I would loose the belly and acne (thought that my acne was caused by dairy), but after 4 months dairy free (and meat free), acne was only worse, and so was my belly, I had gained 15 lbs.

So I decided to try paleo.  I am doing okay so far, and it does seem that my acne is beginning to fade a little, my belly is still poochie though, but it has only been a few days.  But the bread, the bread is a tough one.  I have had luck so far replacing it with home-made paleo bread.  I LOVE the stuff, I make it with almond flour.  Paleo bread, paleo waffles, paleo pancakes, paleo cookies, I mean, even my 5 year old son loves it, and that is saying something! 

But here I find out, most paleo people don't each much of that stuff.  But I am not sure I could do it without it.  It works pretty good as a bread replacement.  I eat meat, fruits, veggies.....problem is, I have never been a big meat eater.  Eating meat for 3 meals a day gets old pretty quick.  So tonight for instance, I was sick of meat, so instead I have a couple of slices of paleo bread smothered in honey, with a spinach and blackberry salad for dinner.....delicious!  It was exactly what I was craving. 

So, is it bad that I eat a lot of paleo baked goods?  Are they bad? I mean, they are delicious!  I have always had a carb addiction too, so I have way upped my intake of sweet potatoes and bananas.  I am NOT trying to do a "low carb" thing.  I am not particularly interested in loosing weight, my weight is fine, but that damn poochey belly drives me crazy.  Any advice?

At 5'8, your ideal lean body mass is probably no more than 150 pounds.  Unless you are actively trying to build large amounts of muscle, 70g of meat protein per day should be sufficient to sustain that.  I'd recommend cutting protein substantially from where you are now, as the excess just gets turned into glucose in the liver.

I would get some ketostix and test at least daily.  Cut the carbohydrate to a level where you stay in ketosis all the time.  I don't remember your sex, but staying in ketosis is especially important if you are female.

Once you are solidly in ketosis, you can cut the amount of fat intake as well, burning body fat instead.

Consider keeping a food journal so you can track what you are eating and what throws you out of ketosis.  If you get hungry, checking with the forum can help, but if you are solidly in ketosis with plenty of body fat to burn, actual hunger shouldn't happen.

Does crocodile taste like alligator?  Alligator tastes like white meat chicken, but with the juiciness of beef.
