Hi - I started Paleo a week ago. I haven't really added regular exercise yet but wanted to see if I'm on the right track and if you experts can offer me any guidance. I eat 1 or 2 fried eggs (I use pam or Kerry gold butter in the pan) with Canadian or regular bacon for breakfast and a mix of either grass fed beef, wild fish or free range chicken and saut??ed vegetables (with olive oil) for lunch and dinner. Added sweet potato a few nights. I've been needing snacks so I've had a Larabar some days, raw nuts, beef jerky from whole foods without any junk in it on other days and at night with herbal tea I have 2 "coco-roons" (has all Paleo ingredients). I've replaced skim milk with unsweetened almond milk and I'm using Truvia instead of Splenda. I know there are parts of the above that aren't 100% Pale but this is my way of easing into it. No carbs, additional sugars or really anything I didn't list above. I feel fine after 7 days, but no different. I have committed to 30 days so I want to be sure I'm doing this "right." Appreciate your feedback.

I disagree with mostly everyone on this board about most things "paleo,"

but personally I think that once you've eliminated processed foods and eat a basically "whole foods" diet and are maintaining a healthy energy balance, the next best thing I think you can do is to increase your activity levels and sit as little as possible during the day time. This will go wayyy further towards improving your health than cutting out small amounts "toxic" foods like oatmeal or lentils or quinoa or other non-tuberous starchy carb sources.
