Introductions / Great Intentions, Support for the Follow-thru
« Last post by Target205 on April 28, 2016, 05:53:38 PM »
I have tried and have had success in the past with other diets....but it is short lived as week by week the pounds return.  I am motivated to see all of the benefits other than weight loss that occur with this diet and soon to be way of life.  I am sure that I will learn many things in the posts here and look forward to the feedback and responses.  Tonight, I am at 263 pounds and look forward to seeing 205 in the very near future.

Diet and nutrition / On the road, fast food alternatives??
« Last post by Target205 on April 28, 2016, 05:26:37 PM »
I spend 50% of my time on the road each month and am just getting started on Paleo...  I am looking to you, the experienced, to guide me through a couple of fast food choices that can be quick finds and true to the plan.  I have used travel in the past as an excuse not to follow a diet, but at this point I have to change!!  Your help is greatly appreciated!!

Hi there!

Welcome - it's not too late. You can change your life!

I would suggest walking - every day.  Start small.  But do it *every* single day.

As for foods, buy stuff you like and buy on sale.  Cuts of meat that are on sale.  Learn to like eggs.  Stuff like that. 

Don't have to jump in 100%.  Just cutting out take out will make you cook more.

Stick around - read a LOT on the topic.  Post here, read here and ask questions.

Introductions / New Girl, Just heard about this program!

I don't know where to get started? I am 60,I have diabetes and weigh 265.  How I found out about paleo, I was looking up what our fore fathers ate.  Because there was no mcdonalds or grocery stores on every corner. And they survived just fine. That's how I heard about Paleo. I am on disability so I don't have a lot of money to spend on food. I have to be budget wise. So any help in getting me started would really help this girl regain some quality of life!

Exercises / Re: I have to exercise. I am 65 this year and very unfit
« Last post by kuahmd on April 27, 2016, 01:20:41 AM »
I have the start of osteoarthritis in my hips and my knees are not flexible.
I have zero money for equipment or a gym.
I have started with some gentle tai chi. I would like to do some weight or resistance training. I own a pair of 2.5kg plastic dumbbells.

Am I beyond help? Can someone point me at something useful on youtube. I have not found anything suitable yet.
Also, I am easily discouraged. How can I measure progress?

I am currently 196 lbs and 5feet 5 inches.

All suggestions gratefully received.

I really need to start gently.

Oh, I also have a static bike and a cross trainer.
Hi. Im 60 yrs. Earlier I was on medication for diabetes and high blood pressure and was nearly losing my senses and my movement restricted due to joint pains. However in April 2015, I stumbled upon a YouTube video-Do you believe butter makes your pants fall down by Butter Bob.. It was something which I thought was funny but decided to watch it to the end. Amazingly Bob showed how he's health condition improve after a year on butter. I decided to do what Bob did and it was a miracle. My health improved with my glucose readings and high blood became normal. I research further and found out ketogenic diet which was similar to what butter Bob was doing. Since then my health improved tremendously and lost 14 kg. Hope you can give a try cos it has help numerous people improve their health. All the best then.

*bump* anyone else wrecking their diet every month with PMS cravings?

I started paleo this month and because of the changes in my diet/ exercise regime my cycle was sooo delayed. I felt like I needed the carbs and ate unhealthily for a couple of days. Don't know if it helped, but at least I got my period! I was going mental.

Any suggestions to avoid PMS cravings next month would be most welcome! It really is my downfall :(

Thank you! Doing great and loving it. Felt sick and weak for a couple days, but after that felt great.  On about day 20 now and surprised at how easy its been. Been sticking to the whole 30 prescription for the first 30 days.  Reassess after that. Not really having any cravings but I am new so don't want to count my chickens yet.  Point is, I feel really great. Lifts are going well.  Hungry alot, but only craving Paleo food. Probably to long of a reply, just excited. Thank you for the warm welcome.

I don't know that much about marmite, but personally I would just use salt in those cases.
