Miscellaneous / Gall bladder removal
« on: August 10, 2012, 02:45:05 PM »
Hi all

I was hoping you might be able to help me, i used to live a caveman lifestyle a few years ago and then with one thing and another, getting pregnant having my daughter i stopped doing it and have piled all my weight back on, however i am having my gall bladder removed on monday and i really want to go back on the diet afterwards once i am recovered but i have had a few drs tell me that this diet is not recommended for people without a gall bladder was wondering if there were any people on here who as had their gall bladder removed and still eating paleo, or if anyone can tell me otherwise i loved this lifestyle and really want to restart my health and diet especially now with having my 15month old daughter.

Miscellaneous / fallen off the paleo wagon
« on: April 19, 2010, 07:18:59 AM »
Hi Guys,

I am back and back for good, i was doing so well and to a degree i have been eating so much better since my doctor told me about 'caveman diet' then i started eating badly again choloclate etc, saying to myself it is only the once yeah right! i am still loosing weight but not toning like i was with caveman and wow do i feel sluggish, so i have told myself i need to stick to paleo, i felt 100% better, had more energy and was loosing weight at a nice pace. i am going to get my hubby to put photos up and i am going to keep a religious diary as this helped last time, plus i only have till the end of july to get my BMI below 35 for me to start fertility treatment. Just in case your wondering my BMI is 36.6 (it was 40.6 at the beginning of january before i found this site and paleo), please can i have encoursgement and messages and emails from people as i found this helped last time.

thanks hope everyone is doing well.

Meta / wow, i feel awful

ok so i was doing really well on paleo, and lost a stone in 15 days :), then i got ill with a stomach virus bug thing abd couldn't keep anything down and doctor told me to just eat what i was able to keep down this happened to be crap food, chinese, kebab, weetabix with hot milk all the things i shouldn't be eating i also stopped writing my food diary any way that was at the beginning of last week and this week we had hardly any food in apart from what was left in the freezer, so meat and veg, and fish which i know is ok but was having other non paleo food with it, and this week i have eaten loads which i know i shouldn't be eating, ben and jerrys cookie dough, chocolate, fizzy drinks, chinese, and i feel like i have lost touch with eating caveman and lost site of my goal. I took my husband into toys r us to look at 'babies r us' to see if that kicked started me again, def made me think and cry in the middle of the shop.... so i weighed myself and i have put 6lb back on :( i am so upset and angry with myself. i have till july 30th to get to a BMI of under 35 before i can start the fertility treatment. I really need to get motivated again, we went food shopping and brought aload of meat and veg in again, then had 1 last blow out of chinese so i am startign again tomorrow. i think encouragement is needed guys. thanks.

Exercises / confusion
« on: January 31, 2010, 12:31:24 PM »
I am confused about what exercise i should be doing (i have not done any properly for about 11 years now). I am currently walking everywhere i go and goign on the wii fit plus for an hour a day doing the aerobic and training plus things on it. i have also started the running on it. Somehow i still feel like i am not exercising properly. I can't afford the gym. I have brought a skipping rope today and was thinking of going in the garden and doing that as well as the walking and wii fit. Any suggestions.

thanks Amy

« on: January 25, 2010, 08:54:06 AM »
 Well today was my first day on paleo  :) I am loving this new way of eating i can't even call it a diet as I am not hungry at all.

Today i have eaten, a fruit salad for breakfast (banana, apple and orange),
a dry fried stir fry (carrots, onions, and mushrooms with a boiled egg) for lunch.
For my evening meal i am having sausages, with carrots, mushrooms, onions and other vegs.

Can someone please tell me if this is ok.
