They've already replied that I can eliminate the dates if I want to and use more almond butter. That's probably what I'm going to do, as I try to avoid fruits, especially dried ones. The beauty of You bars is that apparently you can customize any way you wish.

Even though I 'created' my bars with their terrific online assistance, they encourage me to call to discuss changing the recipe, so that I can get 'real time' advice.

They seem very customer oriented.

Hi

Hello all
I have started eating this way last week. I was already low carbing but lets face it CHEESE was a food group of it own ! I have had problems with the washroom and going too much:blush: and suspected that dairy was more of a problem than I thought. Well I did it. I am dairy free and I gave up my half and half. OH BOY have I had the most wicked headache ever. It is just starting to get better. And this is all from dairy withdrawal. I was totally totally shocked. I have given up everything they have asked except I need to phase out my salt use and I have not given up my Walmart Brand diet soda at this point ( it is made with splenda) though I have not had a pop in 4 days. I will have one if I have a rum ( not drinking for 6 weeks til we go on our vacation to the Mayan on December 1st).I think I will do well at the all inclusive as the food is so great. Fresh fish, seafood, fruit. The booze well we shall see . I am not having a hard time at all. It is easier than I thought. I think I craved dairy and it was hard on my system.

I like that it says 90% of the time to eat this way. Some can do it 100% but not me. If I can get the weight off and stay away from most dairy 90% of the time. I will be thrilled. I have no weighed since I started this. I will weigh next Wednesday and let you all know how I am doing.

It is nice to meet others trying to give this a try.

Katie

Thanks so much for the detailed review of You Bars! I was looking at the site and thought about ordering but was afraid to since I could find no reviews on the taste and texture. Did you ever reorder and go without the dates? I would love to do that. It seems like it would be hard to get the bars to hold together without the dates though. Just wondering if you'd tried them.

What happened to "fluffybear2" ?? Did she become extinct, like the caveman? Haven't heard from her in months.

Minnas-

I DID re-order without the dates, and although I liked them, I don't think that the average person would enjoy the 'flat' taste with no sweeteners at all. You are right that they are more 'crumbly,' but they stay together fairly well. I would not hesitate to order again.

Don't be afraid to order because they offer money back if you don't like the bars you ordered. On Mark's Daily Apple, I read that a poster didn't like his bars, sent them back with a request for a change, and got the newly formulated bars free.

Good to know! I love this concept and would love to support this business so maybe I will go ahead and place an order. Like you, I don't want to make bars part of my diet but it's nice to have something for travel and I need them for my earthquake kit, lol!

So I need to call to place the order for the bars without dates right?

If you go to their website, you create your own bars there. It's really cool. You select all your own ingredients, and the site gives you a running total of calories, carbs, protein, etc.

And you should see the guarantee there as well that you can return what you've created if it's inedible!

I had actually done that a month or two ago when I got an email from Groupon that they were offering the bars half price but I didn't see the option to lose the dates so, in the end, I didn't order. This is before I read your experience. I will see if they now offer that option on the site and if not I'll just call. Thanks!

I'm really heading towards the Paleo way of eating by accident, with the exception of butter for cooking and flavoring, and the 1 or 2 servings of tofu with my daily dark veggie consumption. Don't need much more than food with eyes and dark green veggies, avocado's, and nuts.....such a simple lifestyle....

I have a problem maintaining my weight when I eat fruit. I do eat some veggies every day but fruit poses a problem for me.

I would like to bring to your attention this web site. It is based on a scientific approach to paleo.

PaNu - paleolithic nutrition - duplicating the evolutionary metabolic milieu

And note what he says about fruit (see my signature)

Fruit is a disaster for me and some others so be careful.

climbing aboard....was in the low carb rooms but since I don't have a sweet tooth all the needies there crying about pop tarts calling them and such began to become a drag. Who in their right mind has that crap in their house anyway?
Started out LC Atkins and lost initially but I'm in a huge stall and haven't lost since the first two weeks. Yes, I love my white wine but would eat short (two meals/day) to make up for it. Any suggestions?
BTW I was vegan for three years before realizing that makes you gain too.

WOE: paleo, sprinkling of fermented dairy
Start Date: 5/08
I'm up for a monthly thread!

A recent days menu:

B: frittata with broccoli, spinach, ham. Kimchi on the side.
L: braised brisket with multiple chiles, mashed turnips, braised collards
S: .5 apple + almond butter
D: seared tuna with cabbage salad (with fermented carrots and daikon)

I agree--simple, real food, yummo.

As I say on the side, I eat a bit of fermented dairy (yogurt that I make, a bit of cheese every now and then). I also eat butter, particularly clarified butter. So maybe I am more "primal"? But still.
