Hi everyone,

I am just beginning to learn about Paleo/primal etc, and would like to lurk and ask questions occasionally if that's ok with everyone. My nephew has been doing it about a year+ and he looks absolutely fabulous and so healthy and has cheek bones now! I tease him he's chiseled and looks like the David statue by Michaelangelo! He says he feels great, better than ever... he's a pro-snowboarder here in CO, and highly recommended Paleo to me.

So if it's okay--I will watch you guys, start reading the books in the coming weeks, cheer you on, and hope to join an October Challenge like Stevie Renee with you all if that's okay? I think dairy, especially hwc, is what's been holding me back. I'm addicted to it, and copious amounts of butter as well.

Good luck all, only a few more days before your challenge begins!

oh and I wanted to add, that it seems alot of people are missing the point of a "Challenge"
its not supposed to be easy to give up splenda or stevia or cream in your coffee.. but thats why I call this a challenge, its only 30 days and you can go right back to where you started if you hate this wol. its only 30 days and I promise if you ACTUALLY give it your all for 30 days you will be a changed person. You will feel amazing, you will like this and wonder how you actually ever ate some of the items you cross off your list.

I had cream in my coffee today for the first time in over 4 months. IT WAS DISGUESTING! I couldn't even drink it..

lol I was making coffee for other people at the weekend, and by mistake put some milk in my own - it was revolting - I was so shocked because going over to black was no problem for me - I had always drunk coffee both black and with milk depending on my mood, so I really didn't expect it to be horrible - but it definitely was.

Wow! It's so exciting to see everyone here and ready to go! I have still been on my 'test drive' with only a few slip ups and here is what I have decided:

Absolutely no: Dairy, grains, legumes, artificial sweeteners or nuts/seeds for 30 days. strict 100%. I had some pecans a few days ago and not only did it make me want to keep munching them, it stalled my weight loss so I've decided to skip those til I am closer to goal weight. I still lost 7 pounds on my test drive, though!

I am looking forward to this challenge and the support from everyone! I completely understand Kerry's post about being strict for 30 days because I just want to see where all this takes me and then make informed decisions from there. And I look forward to the day when HWC in my coffee tastes gross but I'm not there yet!

I have been reading up on paleo and I am very close to paleo.

I am lactose intolerant so I really could try giving up dairy.

I mostly consume butter, parmesan cheese, and some cheddar. I don't consume more than about 3 oz per day.

I am going to think about this, I may join you guys in the future. I have just recently cut out all sweets whether natural or artificial and I don't want to take too big of a step and end up rebounding.

Rae: why no nuts? They're allowed and a good source of fat, fiber and nutrients (I usually have 2-3 brazil nuts a day for the selenium lol).

Quote:
Nuts and seeds: Pistachios, Brazil nuts, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds
(pepitas), pecans, walnuts, pine nuts, macadamia nuts, chestnuts, cashews, almonds.

Soo good to hear, I would love to have that happen to me some day as I am so addicted to the hwc right now!

Great, that makes about 3 of us now that could do a challenge together in the future. What do you think about starting Oct 1st?

Dottie,
I am going to skip nuts & seeds for 30 days for a couple of reasons. I know they are 'allowed' on paleo and I also know they are a fantastic source of nutrients. I love them, but I have always tended to overeat them (you could even say binge). I found myself doing just that a few days ago. I made delicious pecan crusted chicken from the Everyday Paleo book but after dinner found myself munching on pecans ALL NIGHT LONG- I couldn't stop! Nothing else in the low carb WOE does that to me and it reminds me of past carb binges... something I need to work on for sure!

Also, I just really want to strip my diet down to the bare bones basics and do this as simply and as clean as possible for the 30 days. Meat, eggs, lots of veggies and healthy fats and small amounts of fruit if any.

Hi, to those of you who are lurking or not sure about the challenge why not join the challengers for the first seven days instead (or the second if you prefer). Then you could see how you felt about it without the scary thought of 30 whole days ahead of you?

it's my understanding though, that even coffee isn't Paleo in that the coffee bean requires a lot of processing to be edible...also people become dependent on it to function.

BUT...some plans allow for it, so I'm certainly not going to say that someone is not following the challenge if they drink coffee...even though I gave it up.

oh..to be clear...I AM going really strict. I gave up coffee (day one). I am strictly on veggies, lean meats...mostly fish, water, tea and small amounts of nuts and fruit.

my main concern is that greek yogurt helps with tummy issues. I will just wait and see how that goes.

I am just allowing a small amount of stevia for my tea.

Hi again

I am having coffee - the way I see it I am fairly addicted to my caffeine and I know I am going to go through some pretty severe withdrawals from it. My intention is to mix some of my current coffee with a decaf brand so that I am slowly cutting down over the next few weeks. That is good enough for me at this point.

what I have planned is that if I get a withdrawal headache ( and I generally DO), I will have a small cup...just enough to get by with a Tylenol if I need it. that has worked for me in the past. the 1st cup is usually after a day and a half...the next one is maybe after 2 days...etc, etc.

hopefully it won't be a big deal since I have only been having one (large) cup per day.

Some people reckon that Whole30 says no coffee - I don't think it does though. I definitely need to cut down - I drink way too much. But as I say, there is no way I am going without it at the moment!

My coffee and my fizzy water are non-negotiable!

Whole 30 doesn't say no coffee... I dunno. My idea when starting this thread was to follow whole 30 or robb wolf...

ok I'm going to join in. I'm doing a candida cleanse for 10 days and then I'm going to stay as close to paleo as I can for the remaining 20! My candida cleanse is no coffee or tea and definitely no sugar or fruits. Just basically fresh meats, fish, and veggies and water and some sunflower seeds to snack on along with my candida cleansing supplements. It won't be easy. After 10 days, I'm going to add in tea and maybe coffee, but not sure about fruit yet. Idk how long I will go without Stevia in my tea as I'm from the south and just don't like unsweetened tea but I'm going to try it. I'm going to try to be strong and do what I must.

This is from Robb Wolf's quick start guide. It's very similar to Whole30 but not exactly the same:

Protein.
Ideally these options are grass fed or wild caught. If you cannot find those should you eat a bagel? No!
Conventional options are fine. Beans and rice do NOT count.
Land: Pork, beef, lamb.
Sea: Trout, salmon, shrimp, crab. You know…fishy type stuff!
Air: Chicken, turkey, duck, ostrich. I know, ostrich is flightless don’t get cheeky.
Round things out with some good quality bacon, omega-3 enriched eggs and some items like chickenapple
sausage to help you with breakfast on busy days.

Veggies.
Ideally these are local and organic, but again, this should not be a deal breaker. Our local mega-food
chain actually has the best produce outside of the farmers market, and at an amazing price. Shop with
the season, which typically means what is on sale. Mix up the colors.

Fruit.
Limit fruit to 1 serving per day if fat loss is your goal. A serving is not a whole watermelon. If you want
to screw things up and not make progress, eat all the fruit you want, it’s your nickel, ride the ride as
you like. In order of preference: Berries, melons, citrus, apples, pears. Bananas, papayas and mangoes
are great for athletes post workout but dodgy for folks who want to lose weight.

Fats.
Olive oil (extra virgin) coconut, avocado (oil and whole), macadamia (whole and oil), almonds, walnuts.
If fat loss is a goal limit nuts to 1-2 oz. per day.

Odds & Ends.
Marinara sauce, herbs, spices-curry powder, garlic, ginger, cilantro, garam massala, chili powder, black
pepper, lemon zest, allspice, cinnamon, cumin, oregano, and basil. Get at least 20 herbs and spices to
keep your cooking lively. Stock up on espresso, teas and mineral water as these are your beverages of
choice.

The majority of your meals look something like this:
• 4-8 oz of lean protein such as chicken, lean beef, turkey, pork loin or seafood.
• Several servings of vegetables, either raw, steamed, or lightly cooked.
• Finally, round out the meal with good fats from Avocado, olive oil or a handful of un-salted nuts
such as almonds, pecans, macadamias or walnuts.

• Protein every meal
• 3-4 meals per day
• Limit fruit to 1 serving if fat loss is a goal
• Limit nuts to 1-2 oz if fat loss is a goal
• Beverages are coffee, tea, minearal water. Unsweetened, this includes stevia.

Google "Robb Wolf 30 day challenge" and sign up for the pdf files that include a shopping list!

Thanks for the reminder! I was just about to go and read the list for a refresher as it's been a while. He says unsweetened , this includes stevia...so stevia is out??

I'm thinking he means no sweeteners, including stevia lol. I was reading it hopefully as well! But no, my logical mind thinks he means not to use it.
