Hello Paleo Hacks.....
So I am considering entering into the Paleo domain but do have some questions.
I would truly like a road map for success in order to get the best out of the transition. In other words if I jump in I want to go in over my head and not just up to my waist... I think.
What are the initial steps I should take: - Picture of myself before - What steps should I take from an evaluation/examination point to see if I have deficiencies like Dave had when he started - Slowly changing the diet to avoid dropping out - Meal Plan - Exercise Plan
I also have a concern in regards to my wife being a Type I Diabetic for 30+ years, and she is a very healthy diabetic but we want to help her even more.
Finally I have a 9 year old son who on the outside is very healthy but I do know that with the SAD (Std American Diet) he as big time room for improvement and I'd rather it be now than later.

I will do the same for you:
4:30am - jog 3-4 miles (4 or 5 X's/week) have a Rockin Wellness protein drink with MCT oil and almond milk immediately afterwards
8:00am - 2 hard boiled eggs and 2 slices of bacon with salsa (maybe 1/2 avocado if hungry)
12:00pm - leftovers from evening before (usually a piece of salmon or baked chicken) with frozen veggies (I try to stay as green as possible but I love cauliflower)...I eat until I am full...maybe one pice of chicken...maybe 2.
if I need a snack before I hit the gym then I eat a handful of almonds, if not, then I don't.
6:00pm Crossfit workout (3 or 4 x's/week)
7:30pm Some sort of protein cooked in olive or coconut oil and again some sort of veggies.
On days that I do not jog in the mornings I am not nearly as hungry so I do not require as much food. On the days that I jog and do Crossfit...I am usually pretty famished but as long as I take in enough proteing and fats I stay pretty full. It will take a while to figure out what works for you. I still play around sometimes with different foods to see where I am with Paleo...I have yet to add sweet potatos back into my diet because they are so high in carbs and sometimes trigger a binge cheat for me. You will find your niche! Good luck and come back to the forum regulary....I am new here but so far I just love it!

I would recommend picking up a copy of Rob Wolfs Paleo Solution. I assume you are not going to be VLC Paleo? IMHO I would get a full blood panel including a VAPs test prepaleo just for reference. I will give you my average day including exercise
Bootcamp (HIIT, sprints, pushups, situps yoga etc)
3 pastured eggs scrambled in 1/2 tablespoon pastured butter 2 pieces of pastured bacon 1 cup homemade kefir 1 .75 lb Organic Sweet Potato baked with 1/2 tablespoon of butter 1 advocado but lately I have been eating for lunch
Burrito box from Whole Foods (chicken, guacamole, lettuce, salsa, onion)
4 1/4 lb 100% grass fed organic beer patties Salad of Arugala with olive oil aged parmesan cheese and organic cucumber
I exercise roughly 4 times a week always fasted. Paleo is actually quite easy
