Habits that aren't ideal/paleo for you? mine is video game/television and fruit addiction.

+1 for this because "me too." Well, I'm getting better about exercising, if you count being dragged outside to walk 2 - 3 miles by my husband 3 or 4 times a week exercise. The food? Is the EASY part.

Canned sardines taste great and I've actually craved them...but, just like with canned tuna, I feel belly bloat after eating them. My next step is to try fresh sardines. I'm fine with sashimi and other fresh fish so I'm left to believe it's the canned fish that gives me trouble. Bummer because they are so healthy and convenient!

Sardines: Omega 3, calcium!! Indeed they are great in this regard - I just hope one day to get this goodness in me via a fresher more natural route. I don't feel as clean eating food out of a tin (specially with salt to wreck my taste buds) @orangecrush: You made me smile, nice to know im not the only one! Im trying to cut down on the carrots now, they are pretty high in sugars and I don't want to go orange all over (I have red hair already) !

mine say.. may contain traces of soy. This is because they are presumably processed on equipment which used soybean oil in a previous batch. Obviously this isn't ideal - However I don't want to pay premium price (for a fancier sardine) for something which I am mainly attracted due to how cheap it is! I generally just feel guilty about eating canned stuff, when everything else I eat is so fresh!!

i have a tiny insight into the canned tuna/fish thing (but you most likely already covered this base): they often contain soy. I'm now very careful to only buy the tuna/sardines in olive oil ONLY (salt ok), and now I don't have trouble. Perhaps you've tried this already.. thought i'd mention it just in case, or for another reader. :)

There's very little wrong with tinned sardines in my opinion. Actually, because they usually include the bones, which are soft enough to eat, it's even better for you- more calcium and minerals! I assume you're talking about "whole" canned sardines anyway.

Smoking once in a while is probably not that harmful, so don't worry about that one. Cheese, chocolate and bit of wine definitely aren't harmful. The Internets are probably harmful, except for when you're chatting with me on Facebook. That's good for you. Remember that.

I'm cutting back on my carrot consumption too after I realized somedays I would eat one pound. The non-diet things you listed are spot on here too.

Yeah, it's bad! There is a winery here in Maryland (Boordy) that makes a really good bottled one- I recently found a store that carries the 1.5 liter bottle and sells it for just a few bucks more than the small bottle. So of course I've been drinking twice as much, lol

Well I don???t worry about having a paleo lifestyle, but in terms of things that hurt my health the biggest is thinking I will change.

I am lazy and wanna go home and snuggle on the couch. Somehow I keep convincing myself that tommrow I will wake up an be this fundimentally different person who will be eager to get up and exercise or who will not want chocolate any more.

It never happens but I keep convincing myself that somehow it will.

Overtraining - I Crossfit 6 days a week and climb 2. I know it's bad for me, but I enjoy it too much to cut down to the optimal level of exercise.

Macadamia Nuts - they're too tasty, so I have a handful after dinner. Too many omega-6's, but I can't help it.

I like to think it's not....until I sometimes realize the copious amounts I consume them in. THEN, it's a problem!

This is a great question. If I'm prepared for what the day brings whether it be at work or at home with my kids I am on top of the world. When I run late, am rushed or unprepared in other ways I am stressed to the max...and it's a downward spiral from there. Taking charge of my life in terms of preparedness and pre-planning helps me tremendously. Lists!

Eating paleo has been the most positive, life changing thing for me but it's a work in progress. Even some foods that are pseudo-acceptable in our paleo community just don't work for me: my dietary trip ups are nuts, dairy (even butter), too much coffee, canned sardines/ tuna (even the no-sodium added ones...anybody have any insight into that?), coconut oil, lard and too many carrots.

The results of ingesting these foods is not a full blown allergy but just nagging feelings of malaise and a bloated belly-- which affects my whole day ;( But they're true personal weaknesses because for some reason, I will eat them!

mine say.. may contain traces of soy. This is because they are presumably processed on equipment which used soybean oil in a previous batch. Obviously this isn't ideal - However I don't want to pay premium price (for a fancier sardine) for something which I am mainly attracted due to how cheap it is! I generally just feel guilty about eating canned stuff, when everything else I eat is so fresh!!

i have a tiny insight into the canned tuna/fish thing (but you most likely already covered this base): they often contain soy. I'm now very careful to only buy the tuna/sardines in olive oil ONLY (salt ok), and now I don't have trouble. Perhaps you've tried this already.. thought i'd mention it just in case, or for another reader. :)

Too much dark chocolate. Difficulty finding liver palatable.

Fortunately, I'm allergic to wheat (it gives me rashes) or I'm sure that would be a problem.

Those vegetable chips that are deep fried in canola oil, occasional beer, sitting ALL day at work without stretching, and video games.

Yeah, it's bad! There is a winery here in Maryland (Boordy) that makes a really good bottled one- I recently found a store that carries the 1.5 liter bottle and sells it for just a few bucks more than the small bottle. So of course I've been drinking twice as much, lol

Grocery store rotisserie chickens.

Whatever you do, avoid the ones from Walmart. There's so much crap in them they make me gag. Forget the health aspects, they taste terrible.

They include rubs and injections with some un-paleo ingredients. I buy them in lieu of fast food only when I need to.

Deadly omega 6s: Roast chicken and walnuts - always feel bad afterwards

Insatiable sweet addiction: Raw carrots to the excess - not ideal

Non-pure foods!: canned tuna, sardines :( Maybe when im richer I'll get fresh fish.

Non-diet: biting nails, allowing myself to run late and stress, procrastinating from work on paleohacks!

How many carrots are we talking!? I'm bad with omega 6's too, mostly from Cashews...I don't think there's a limit to how much of them I can eat. Also, Dark Chocolate is my kryptonite. Or Chocolate in general.

There's very little wrong with tinned sardines in my opinion. Actually, because they usually include the bones, which are soft enough to eat, it's even better for you- more calcium and minerals! I assume you're talking about "whole" canned sardines anyway.

@PaleoMouth: I could have written this...every single word of it! I find myself feeling pretty bad after eating roast chicken, nuts and especially after my beloved sardines. I'm cutting back on my carrot consumption too after I realized somedays I would eat one pound. The non-diet things you listed are spot on here too. Thank goodness we stumbled upon this board to guide us!

Sardines: Omega 3, calcium!! Indeed they are great in this regard - I just hope one day to get this goodness in me via a fresher more natural route. I don't feel as clean eating food out of a tin (specially with salt to wreck my taste buds) @orangecrush: You made me smile, nice to know im not the only one! Im trying to cut down on the carrots now, they are pretty high in sugars and I don't want to go orange all over (I have red hair already) !

Canned sardines taste great and I've actually craved them...but, just like with canned tuna, I feel belly bloat after eating them. My next step is to try fresh sardines. I'm fine with sashimi and other fresh fish so I'm left to believe it's the canned fish that gives me trouble. Bummer because they are so healthy and convenient!

Mixed drinks...yum! White Russians or long island iced teas are my favorite. Oh, and don't forget margaritas! Yes, all of these are full of sugar...

I have some chips now and then, but nothing major. I have to agree about the dark chocolate thing. I usually am content with one small piece, but sometimes I need the whole bar and still want more.

Not food related, I'm a bump on a log in front of the TV most nights, and I work in front of a computer all day long.

Cheese. Cigarettes. Wine and liquor.

Which of these do me the most harm and slow my progress the most?

Cheese. Indoubtably.

Cheese is like a hot speedball of good coke and sticky tar right to the vein. It is my crack, my muse and the bane of my existence. But I can't lay off the stuff. I'm an addict. I admit. But I like it.

Tobacco and booze? Eh.. it's a weekend thing and nothing impulsive at all like cheese, sweet cheese.

I suspect bacon is not ideal for me. ...and I don't think it's "paleo" (but i'm not concerned about that). My weaknesses are dairy, coffee, and nuts.. I think i'm going to have to kick coffee to kick cream. I've done it before.. sigh.. my life is so empty without vices. lol.
