Hi, I just started eating paleo today, I have a significant amount of weight to lose and don't want to consume too much sugar from starchy veggies, fruit, etc. What is a healthy limit to follow for now? I know it's not about measuring and calorie counting, but I have an endocrine disorder where insulin function is very important and I should be watching sugar grams per day and the source. Thanks for any guidelines :-)

Generally the rule of thumb is to keep actual added sugar down to zero, keep carbs from starchy veggies between 50g-150g, though it's easier to lose fat when it's between 50g-100g. ??So that means no commercial food like products, snacks, etc.
If you have insulin issues, you'll probably want to purchase a glucometer and test with it often to see the effect of various foods, the quantity of food, and the timing on your blood sugar.
