Introductions / :( Hi... I need some help please
« on: July 09, 2017, 11:10:00 AM »
Don't really know what to say here but... I've been wanting to "go paleo" for probably nearly 2 years now but for some reason can't do it... like I'm too scared to or something I don't know. But basically for the past year I've had severe depression and anxiety and IBS and I honestly just feel like giving up now. I don't want to be medicated for it and I have a phobia of taking any tablet/supplement so vitamins are out too.

I seem to spend all my free time (evenings + weekends) just going on the internet looking at paleo success stories and websites and hoping something will click so I'll start it but nothing does. I eat a lot of pizza and takeaway although I do eat a lot of meat as well. I've read nearly all the Paleo books (Primal Blueprint being my favourite) but I just can't seem to get my head around it. I'm scared of how many carbs I should be eating as I've read too low causes anxiety but too high causes depression. And I don't know how much meat and I don't really like vegetables that much. I can't afford organic/grassfed meat and vegetables and my mum doesn't believe in the diet so buys loads of food that I end up binge eating.

As anyone got any advice for me please? :( I feel like such a failure and I haven't even started.
