Well, I have done it now! I have about 85% paleo and have finally 100% beaten the sugar. Been 4 months now. I would backslide a little bit with the gluten free stuff I made myself and then said the hell with it, I don't want substitutes and went all out. My "cheats" are organic popcorn once a week, wine about every two weeks, my oatmeal fro breakfast and potatoes. And my 4 ounce of plain yogurt with a teaspoon of maple syrup a day.
I am living on vegetables, meat and fruit for the most part. A nice dinner is a buffalo pattie cooked with bacon and potatoes done in the grease. I am now branching out and bought some brussel sprouts to cook with bacon and had bell peppers smothered in nitrate free sausage last night. Eating with a lot of veggies is a challenge. Tomorrow is a chicken done with sweet potatoes. Have not figured out why sweet potatoes are paleo and potatoes are not.
It had turned into a very expensive way to eat. I had to buy new clothes. I have lost over 20 lbs in the last couple of months and feel wonderful. I am officially into regular sized clothes. I cried when I got the size 16 Gloria Vanderbilt jeans at Ross of 15 bucks. And they are now too big.
Thankfully our local Kmart has a boat load of really cute stuff all cotton, cheap.
Today is my birthday and we are celebrating with an Indian lunch and going to watch the new Star trek movie from Netflix.
