Default Paleo diet

Not that my diet or health is bad but thinking I'm going to give this diet a try. Anyone else on it or try it? I'm reading the paleo solution book right now and holyshit does it open your eyes to "approved" food by FDA and all the other bozos that think they know what's good for us.

I think in the end i'll stick with the diet, or not even a diet but just a change in what you eat is the way I see it. Now I won't be 100% paleo but i'll be happy with 80 - 90%.

We do our best to stay away from processed (box meal) foods. We try to use organic usa processed, grown, etc produce. It's scary that its now legal (signed in by our wonderful pres) for the companies to not tell you where the product is even processed. Meaning it can go to China or anywhere. That's a whole nother post though. I've read a little about the paleo diet before and thought it made sense. Honestly though with a wife and two kids I cannot afford to do special diets like that. Having a daughter w/ a dairy allergy is tough enough. If it was just me and the wife though I would give it a shot for sure. Be curious to hear how it goes for you.

The guy linked below does a variation on the 80-90% paleo like you talk about. Described more simply as low carb, high fat, and moderate protein to match activity level. Guy is 50+ and took up running marathons after the diet change. His famous quote is that the first 80% of the result takes 20% of the effort, so you won't find him freaking out about grass fed kobe beef or other Whole Food type expensive stuff.

I'm on the road too much for work to eat like that, but my dad changed and lost 30-40lbs and all his blood work came in much better since a year ago. Doctor was happy, but my dad couldn't tell him that he basically flipped the food pyramid and ditched standard medical advice.

Yeah the book I'm reading the guy has a great sense of humor. He's like I'm just the messenger here and don't expect a dr. to believe your blood work and health turned around simply by a diet.

I don't eat bad by any means but plan to reduce my legumes, grain and dairy intake significantly but over all I don't eat that much of them to begin with. It shouldn't be a drastic change for me but not sure what the food bill is going to be when I fully convert for a 30 day trial like the guy beats into your head in the book.

I'm a solid 190 and want to get down to 175ish and stay there. I have muscle mass due to lifting weights and not much fat but Losing my belly is the main goal here, I'm a 32 inch waist. It's amazing when you get around 40 years old and it takes 2 days to gain 5 lbs and 2 weeks to lose it....

The no beer is the real struggle in all of this...

...ya I'm out lol Me and the Mrs. tried the paleo stuff a few years ago, results would be great if you didn't go in the poor house. We both liked it and will most likely try again after the kids are out of the house.

Nutrition has become pretty big with me, I like experimenting with different things to see what works best for me. Right now as far as losing weight I've found that a high fat diet works best for myself. Right now I shoot for 70% fat 20% protein 10% carbs. You want a challenge? Try getting 3500 calories on a high fat diet. May not sound that hard until you try it. A couple tips if you want to lose that belly. Stay away from carbs in the morning, if you want to stay away frI'm dairy, coconut oil becomes your friend. I usually put about 600 calories of heavy cream in my coffee each morning. As long as you don't put sugar in it, that will keep you satiated for a good while, and still keep your energy levels up. Also you can look into fasting as a good way of dropping weight and getting healthier. My diet yesterday was heavy cream in my coffee at 530 celery and full fat cream cheese and 4 eggs and a few pieces of bacon. About 1500 calories total and I had to force myself to eat the rest of my calories. Meanwhile my gut inflammation went away and my abs showed very well. If you want another great read, try "wheat belly" "keto clarity" or "the bulletproof diet"
