Food Journals / The Best 30 Day Paleo Challenge Ever starts next Monday!
« Last post by Seb_London on September 30, 2014, 08:23:46 AM »
Hey everyone,

I'm putting together a group to do a very special type of 30 Day Paleo Challenge.

Start date: 6 October 2014

Duration : 30 days

So this it the deal. 30 Day Challenges tend to be a bit boring, right? This one will be very different. All participants will become completely accountable to the rest of the group. No cheating. Full transparency. Maximum peer support, encouragement and motivation. Maximum results.

How?

We will be using a free iOS app I have developed. We will be sharing pictures of every meal we eat with this app. The app will keep track of how many Paleo meals we eat, validate that the meals are actually Paleo, reward the participants with points and allow them to track their weight. There will also be a crowd-sourced feedback system to make sure everyone is going in the right direction.

For now there are about 40 people signed up. Would be great to involve as many people as possible!

Interested? Then leave a message below and email me your name at sebastien@mypaleopal.com

See you soon

PS: I've also posted this on Reddit/r/Paleo (http://redd.it/2htc9c)
PS2: Really sorry for those NOT on iOS, but for now, the app is only for iOS...

I don't know if I'm getting enough salt though, I don't usually like to add salt to cooked food but I was craving watermelon with salt today bad. I'm also drinking a lot of water, so even sprinkling in salt doesn't seem like enough.

Good point Warren! I'm still in transition mode, so I'm not 100% percent Paleo yet. I'm not sure if I'll go full tilt boogie, but we will see as time goes on!  ;D

Looks like a pretty good diet.

If you want to go very low carb - ketogenic - paleo, you may have to limit or give up apples.  I would recommend getting some ketostix and using them until you get a feel for when you are in or out of ketosis, and how much fruit you can have and still remain in ketosis.

Once you get solidly into ketosis, you won't have much in the way of carb cravings, though you may still get some craving for fruit when you need vitamin C.

Introductions / New to Paleo

Hello all!

I am 32 yr old female. I've been very active my whole life but I have the diet of a 10 year old with no supervision. Seriously it's pretty bad. After years of fad diets and yo yo weight disasters I discovered Paleo. I decided to make this a lifestyle choice and found this site because I could use a community of like minded people. Living in the south i spend most of my time surrounded by biscuits and beer and I like knowing there are other people out there that I can get ideas and inspiration from. I started Paleo 2 months ago but did it in stages, to give my body a chance to adjust. Just giving up frozen dinners and processed sugar I've lost 9 pounds! Now I'm working on getting away from the processed meats and beans (which I will miss) and finding more vegetables to add to my diet. I look forward to reading everyone's post!

2 PaleOMG Soft & Chewy Double Chocolate Cookies http://paleomg.com/soft-chewy-double-chocolate-cookies/

I have to say, these remind me of the rule of thumb that "anything with 'paleo' in the name isn't paleo".  "Coconut sugar" is just sugar from an obscure source - and there's a lot of it in the recipe.

Still, you seem to be doing reasonably well so far.  Things like this may not matter until the last few pounds.
