    Biggest challenge to starting the Paleo diet

    I've heard a lot of good things about the Paleo diet so I'm seriously considering starting it this Monday.

    But I'd like to hear from some of the veterans - what was the hardest part to starting off?

    For me there wasn't a hard part as I wanted to feel better,lose some weight and after reading up on it knew cutting everything out from day 1 was the way to go.


    Been maintaining under 9 stone on a Primal diet since Oct 2012.


    Commitment and hard work gets you there.

    You can 'diet' and still have a life if you really,really want to.



    Maintaining is easier than the losing.

    Your weight is not going up for no reason. It's going up because you consume more than you burn.

    116 days until Xmas.

    Cutting out bread is going to be tough. My entire family was raised on bread! But hey, if I'm serious then I'm going to have to make some sacrifices...I guess

    Yep you sure are or join Slimming World/Weight Watchers where you can still eat those foods..

    I use to pack away a whole packet of biscuits,6 pack of crisps,box of cereal bars,cakes,sweets the list just goes on just in a day.
    Don't miss any of it.I eat a sandwich/baguette if we are out but it doesn't make me want it again.

    I can't say there is anything on the 'forbidden' list I miss now.

    I have been eating this way for nearly 2 years now and I am still enjoying what I eat.

    Okay, I'm going for it! What do I have to lose

    Have you tried the Keto diet? I've heard that is good as well.

    Definitely bread and pasta but then I do occasionally have croissants as I missed those. But I started with the idea of being 75/80% paleo anyway. I thought not having pasta would be hard but when I do a pasta sauce, or make somethign like lasagna I have what I call courgette spaghetti instead, I just fry strips of courgette in some butter with some garlic and that's great.
