Need help and advise

Commented on January 24, 2014

I am very new to paleo.

I believe in it.

My problem is, I'm not a huge veggie eater. I was a big meat, grains, nuts fruit eater.

Meat is no problem, but eating more veggies is!

I still eat very little dairy. We like fresh smoothies with frozen fruit, Greek yogurt, almond milk, and flax seed! They r yummy!

My prob is, I really want to do this diet, but I'm having trouble finding good to eat!

I am not relieving my bowls good at times, and have not list a pound in 2 weeks, or gained! I would lik to loose 10 pounds.

I know this is a lot of rambling, but I'm frustrated, and I want to this to work, I really believe in Paleo!

Any advise and pointers?

If you really want to diet then stick to veggies and fruits, you can eat meat but in very little only. More veggies and fruits, and also exercise.

i stick to about 1 cup of veggies a day total and it works for me. you don't have to overdue it. mine is usually a potato or sweet potato and some sauekraut and garlic.

I'm not a huge fan of vegetables. I can tell you what helps me.

Bacon grease and butter and salt.

What makes green beans better: Bacon grease and salt.

What makes broccoli better: Butter and salt

What makes salad better; Bacon grease.

I don't think I'm ever going to long for vegetables, but these things help.

It's pretty easy. You just cook them, then eat them, haha. It might take a minute to figure out how to make them palatable or for you to get used to the vegetable flavor, but that shouldn't get in your way (go fear factor mode on some veg if you have to.)

You really just have to put in the effort to get past it, like jumping in a cold pool (or edging your way in, if that's your style.) Eventually, you'll be able to look it as just nutritious food and not gross vegetables.

It's strange, but your tastes will change if you make them.

You could put a teaspoon of something like "green superfood" by "amazing grass" into your smoothies and get a hit of greens without even really tasting it. People have mixed opinions about such products so try and see how you get on. Ultimately though, you have to break the psychological resistance to vegetables by being creative and experimenting with different ways of preparing them so that you can get them into your body.
