My name is Justin and here is my story.

Iím in my mid 30s and the activities I enjoy doing are getting harder to do. I have been suffering with back pain for about 14 years now and it had been progressively getting worse then last year I had enough. I quit working for about 8 months and did pretty much nothing hoping my to give my back time to heal up. Well that didnít work it still hurt and I gained about 30lbs. So finally I went to the DR and got in a physical therapy program. I also decided at this time I need to lose my extra weight and get my muscles I lost back and possibly even more strength.

I had looked into paleo years ago a few different times when I would get on health kicks but never committed to it because I didnít see the benefits vs my normal eating habits. Quality meats, wild game, fresh fish, vegetables etc. and didnít want to give up beans, bread, etc.

The only thing I am clinging on to right now is cheese, yes I know itís not paleo recommended but I plan to do a whole 30 in the future after my body adjusts to the lack of carbs and sugars. I will probably add dairy back into my diet after that because I donít think I have any lactose problems. We will see.

I have been paleo now for about 2 weeks and have lost about 6 lbs.

I am looking to sharing my progress and reading others stories and learning from you guys here. Thanks for having me.

I have also heard many benefits of turmeric. It also helps to increase glow on your face.

I hope you guys don't mind me splitting this into a separate topic.

loelaj, I would guess that most likely your scale isn't that accurate; most bathroom scales are not.  In some cases, though, people see muscle gains that compensate for fat loss initially, if they were previously not eating sufficient meat.
That could be it, thank you

Hi loelaj,

Have there been any changes to your activity/exercise in this time?
No, not yet. Since this is a drastic change to my diet, I thought I would just do the dietary changes for the first month, then add exercise so I don't feel too overwhelmed. I think a big reason people give up is that they try to take on too much at once

I've taken to rooibos tea lately (a South African variety without caffeine). Less boring than water, less caffeinated & addictive than coffee, less sugar than fruit juice.

Same old for meals (granola, salads, eggs, etc), another roo steak & salad for dinner last night - prawns (with coconut cream, kaffir lime leaf, coriander leaf (aka cilantro), scallion, chilli, ginger, garlic, S&P) tonight. I had less fruit than I have lately (refer to Warren's previous comment). Last night I had smoked salmon for "dessert" - I've found a brand that contains only salmon, salt, and woodsmoke (most have sugar in the curing mix).

I found a supplier of excellent free range, grass fed meats recently, so yesterday I stocked up the freezer with various cuts of beef, pork, and lamb which is farmed close to home. Expensive, but a little goes a long way.
