    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.
    If you want it enough you won't keep finding excuses to not do it.

    What fits your schedule better -- Exercising 1 hour a day or being f** 24 hours a day?”

    Paleo since Apr 2012 9st 9lbs got to 8st 7lbs October 2012 and with focus,exercise and motivation have stayed below 9st since.
    Hard work and dedication pays off.No time for excuses if you really want to loss the weight.
    I can now enjoy special occasions without having to worry about what the scales will say after.

    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.
