Wow, a down vote for this answer? I'm pretty strict paleo, but don't feel the need to 'punish' someone who isn't.

I was able to add back dairy, though I have to be picky about what type (raw works best, and higher fat works best as well. Goat fine, sheep fine, cow is where I have to be pickier).

Corn, rice and potatoes are fine in moderation if I want them.

Cereal grains never - I'm celiac :)

Have had to eliminate cruciferous veggies like cauliflower for the time being, as they hurt my gut.

I added back in dairy pretty early on. Recently I added potatoes to the mix. I also eat corn, which some say is a no-no. Processed sugar and flour will never come back, of course. Eventually I will try legumes and rice, but I'm taking it slowly so I can see what effect each food has. I'm a big believer in finding your own personal tolerances rather than making a blanket statement that Grok didn't eat x, y and z so I won't either.

I added dairy after a 8 months of really strict paleo and once in a while I enjoy sushi(with rice). But I don't ever want to add legumes or rice on a daily bases. I always gain weight on those.

I eat rice, potatoes and beans occasionally, but wheat is always still a problem. I do low carb, so I don't have much of these foods. I'm better with less cheese, too, but I still eat it when its in the house.

I had to cut out grains. It wasn't really hard for me, though sometimes I look at rice longingly.

Other then that, I really didn't cut out anything that I hadn't cut out when I was on my vegetarian kick.

As for adding foods, I'm trying extremely hard to add meat to my diet, they're just really hard on my stomach and I have no desire to eat them, so I'm having quite a bit of trouble in that area (and I seem to lose more weight when I'm not eating meats).

Dairy, potatoes, beef, eggs and rice are the main ones for me.

I haven't been able to add back a damn thing so far! Eliminated dairy, nuts and their oils/butters/flours, seeds, high and moderate FODMAPs, cruciferous veges unless they're cooked to mush, and am currently testing sweet potatoes because I think they're keeping me bloated. IBS is a bitch - but a controllable one.

I'll preface by saying that I believe that paleo is primarily a lifestyle of activity which includes a lot of meat. Beyond that I eat anything that I can digest, and that includes processed foods, sugars and grain products. I have no food allergies and can metabolize practically anything known as food anywhere in the world.

In order to get rid of obesity and D2 I quit eating dry breakfast cereals and white rice. They played havoc with my blood sugar. I know that I could start eating these foods again, but I choose to avoid them. They bring back bad memories.
