I've only read a few pages but wanted to share my experience as well. I decided to go Paleo 3 1/2 weeks ago, just because it sounded like a good
idea, and I'm always willing to try something to make me feel/look better. I've done cleanses, vegitarian, wheat free, vegan, french, meditarian and
probably some others that I can't remember. I was a bit over weight, 211 on my weigh in before I started, I should be around 195.
So I started on paleo, the first few days were pretty darn hard, my body was crying out for something, anything other than what I was eating, meat,
veggies, some fruit some nuts. Also drinking, not a huge alcohol consumer, but a few a day, switching to just tea/coffee and water with lemon in it
was hard too. But after 4 days or so my body stopped crying for this stuff and instead of asking for crackers and cheese, potato chips, bread, beer,
and the like, it now wants water and a handful of nuts or raw vegetables.
My results have been like nothing else I have ever tried, I was loosing on average 1/2 pound a day for the first two weeks, and as of today I have
lost 10 of the 15 pounds I wanted to loose. I can tell it was fat as most of it is around my mid section and this part has shrinked dramatically, down
to the last notch in my belt going the right way! Also I work shift work, and I have struggled on the night shifts 20:00-04:00. After two weeks of
this way of eating my last round of nights were a so much easier than I have ever had in the 6 years that I have been doing them. Not to mention that
I wake up feeling great and through the day I don't have any feelings of starving even though I'm eating less.
Thanks for posting OP, and I hope you don't mind me sharing my story. The main difference on the paleo diet is that it isn't for a while, it isn't
for until you loose the weight that you want to loose, it's a life style change and it's one that I for one will be sticking to for ever I think.
