This week's trip started well... I walked a mile from the hotel to load up on fruits and veggies for snacks and water for the room and then the hike back with some curls along the way... Nice sweat and a nice pick up.... Out tonight to find a nice piece of salmon. We will see what the Padres have for cavemen tomorrow night.
I've noticed a disturbing trend that I feel is really holding me back in terms of my diet/health
Every single time I try and go paleo I stick with it for 2-3 weeks and then I end up bingeing out on things like bread/fake peanut butter/jelly/crackers etc.. And this always lasts a few days and sometimes spirals into weeks of feeling like shit and eating foods that are horrible for me
I don't think it has to do with not eating enough but perhaps it's just unstructured eating causing this?
Btw in a typical day I eat:
B- 2 egg omellette w veggies and fruit
L:tuna or some other fish/meat w lettuce and a lot of fruit
D: some sort of meat w sweet potato, fruit
Snacks: fruit, almond butter, smoked salmon (realizing I eat ALOT of fruit)
Has anyone had any experience with this and can offer some advice? Thanks!!

I'm not above Wendy's bacon burgers. I order them plain with no cheese and I throw out the buns. Sometimes I put mustard on them, and salt of course.
Training yourself to throw out the buns is key. Get those plastic knives and forks instead. If you have any fat to lose, you can skip the bacon and get any fast food burger, plain, and throw out the buns.

You don't need a lot of money to go paleo.
If you want to see some initial success, I would suggest one or two weeks week on strict paleo. Buy hamburger, eggs, and bacon, with some nonstarchy vegetables, and a bit of whole fruit if you really want, enough that you can eat nothing else for a week. Carrots count as "nonstarchy" but avoid potatoes or sweet potatoes. Don't buy canned or prepared fruit as it often has sugar added.
If you have a bit of extra money, buy some steak for a treat.
If you limit yourself to those foods for a week or two, you sill start to see results in terms of blood sugar and reduced need for insulin or other drugs. Be prepared to cut your dosages.
Once you see some results, you can decide if you want to keep at it.

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.

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!!

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.

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!
