Where did you come from?

How did you hear about Paleo and was it what you thought?

Inreasingly I am seeing posts along the lines of:

"Hiiiii guuuuuys, I am Sabrina, I am 17 years old, 6ft 3, 120lbs and as you can see severely overweight, harumpf. I have decided to go paleo coz I want to be thin. I have eliminated all grains, corn and starch from my otherwise SAD diet. Ultimately this means I eat half a banana for breakfast, (bad I know but I have heard a whole banana has alot of sugar or something), I have a carrot for lunch and then eat skinless boneless chicken breast for dinner. I feel really tired, someone said I had flu and that it will pass. Any tips on being more full of energy and less tired? I want to lose a stone by tomorrow."

Or

"Hi everyone, I'm stuck on a weight loss plateau and need your help. I lost lots of weight the first 2 weeks of paleo but seem to be stuck now and in fact I fear I may be putting it all back on. I eat clean paleo; usually bacon, egg whites and berries for breakfast, a bunch of bananas for lunch and a sack of potatoes for dinner with some wild alaskan salmon and 4 avocados. I snack on nuts and dried fruit. I also bake these amazing paleo muffins so I eat them from time to time. Oh and I am getting plenty of cardio: I run 3 times a day, 7 days a week with crossfit on Wednesday and Saturday. Hack me please I don't know what's wrong!"

People seem to find their way onto paleohacks without understanding the basic concepts of paleo. I know I have asked some odd questions but I feel I was more fine-tuning my knowledge after reading The Paleo Solution and Loren Cordain's books. I have also since bought more books on Paleo/Primal living.

My story:

Took up cycling a year ago and aimed for cycling a century as my first challenge. I did it but every 20 miles or so had to suck on a gel or eat some sweets for energy. By mile 60 I was cycling with a group of people and one guy was munching on raw carrots. I finally asked him why?! He told me carrots were a great source of easily transportable carbs. I looked at him with scepticism, thinking of the banana in my back pocket. He then explained the concept of paleo and from that day on I was hooked and convinced. I never looked back.

So that's my story. What's yours? Where did you hear about Paleo? How has your concpet of Paleo changed if at all?

That's another aspect of my transition. After listening to the cyclist and reading books and scientific papers I thought it sounded like a very promising venture. I thought I would try it and experiment on myself. I would only try it for a few months and see. So far so good! Will get a blood profile done in another few months and see how my internals are operating. I hope they're as good as my external appearance!

Have you tracked your food? What about trying one for longer than 3 months? I know when I started out that I put ON weight but now, 5 months in, I am starting to lose it again. Mind you, this week I'm not feeling too hot but I am under ALOT of stress and not sleeping much which all has it's compounding negative effect. What's your lifestyle like?

10 lb. Just to be in "normal" and not "overweight." I'm small-boned. I'm not muscular. Maybe I'm just dense? lol. I've done low-carb, high-carb, PHD, IF, just-eat-real-food, paleo zone, pretty much about every macro ratio out there (usually a 3-month trial with each one). Zero loss. I'm about to get a hormone panel (I'm 38), but if that shows up nothing then, well, at least I feel awesome! I'm just going to have to assume my body knows what it's doing.

You might be surprised ... if someone is very overweight, just correcting the biochemistry with paleo can cause weight loss. My initial weight loss was 30 lb in 2 months, on 3000 cal a day, no exercise (I'm a 5'5" female). Now that I'm within range of normal, I am having to watch calories.

I saw that article - I think you posted it on another thread. I have to tell you that I was truly stunned! I actually threw my scale away after I read it. :) Keep posting that one around! All I want is to be JUST in the top range of my BMI...from being obese for so long. Maybe that's silly. One thing that bothers me on this site is that a lot of the men are very hard on the girls with body images. But I think paleo can be the beginning of healing for these girls. We're all just do darn brainwashed, even those of us who should know better!

I am glad you found Paleo and I agree on that reading list lol! My frustrations are more about scale addicts. There's an article featuring a woman's before and after where she weighs 155lbs in both pictures but the pictures are a night and day difference from each other. Sometimes, the actual weight we think we should be at isn't where we should actually be. I agree that if I stopped seeing changes then I might get worried, especially if I was still very visibly carrying a lot of excess weight.

I did the weight watchers route in the past too. I can tell you that while there can be a lot of planning at the beginning of your paleo journey, it is less time consuming than logging points. Good luck!

I started eating Paleo as an experiment. I was thinking about all the gluten intolerance popping up and started thinking about our ancient diets. Some time spent googling ancient diets and voila. Found my answer. Now I'm following through to see if I see positive effects on myself, which I can say is so far doing well, despite only being a week in. I'm less bloated, I have only had one painful stomach ache, my breath doesn't smell as bad and there is not a single bit of acne on my face.

I don't need to lose weight or anything, I have been watching to make sure I am getting enough calories to keep my weight as it is. I'm sure if I slept more and exercised I'd feel amazing.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed questions like that. I HATE when people ask how to lose more weight because the scale isn't budging. Truthfully, I'd love to answer all of those questions with "Paleo is not a diet, it is a lifestyle. If all you care about is losing weight then please quit eating and you will see results." I'm a terrible person, I know. Rant over.

I am not an athlete in any shape or form and probably never will be. I come from a very SAD life with plenty of pizza and sandwiches and lots of rice. I met someone and we dated for almost 2 years and I packed on the complacency weight. I weighed almost 290lbs at the end. After the break up I couldn't believe what I was seeing, I would have left me too haha. I was huge, my shirts were even bigger to "hide" me and my old pants were worn mostly unbuttoned because they didn't fit. I turned into an extreme calorie counter and weighed EVERYTHING I ate. I lived on a small bowl of broccoli and cauliflower with garlic and mozzarella cheese, deli sliced turkey, Pepsi MAX (contains aspartame) and yoplait light. I was eating less than 1000 calories a day on my almost 6 foot frame. I lost no weight doing this surprisingly. I also didn't feel starving but, I was sleeping 16+ hours a day, felt depressed, and insanely irritable. Then I learned about aspartame and some of the awful symptoms it causes (extreme face itchiness anyone?) I went back to full SAD but tried to add more healthy things too. I was searching for the cure to my illness. I tried being a vegetarian and vegan but, I was starving and only meat could stop the feeling. I tried being a high carb, low fat vegan/frugivore (30lbs of bananas a week...those people are insane.) I went in for an emergency surgery to have my gall-bladder removed last year and that was my real look. I started devouring diet books written by doctors but, they were all complicated and selling supplements and measuring and too much. They didn't work, not a single one. I was starving and sick and still fat. My weight would fluctuate 15lbs up or down everyday. I stumbled onto Paleo by complete accident from the Nerd Fitness blog. I got excited, finally someone was telling me I could have vegetables and meats and fats all in one "diet." I devoured Paleo books, blogs, and podcasts and it just made sense. Much more sense than eating next to nothing, or 5lbs of bananas a day and heaps of raw veggies, or eating tons of brown rice and veggies. These "diets" were making me sick. Paleo was my cure. I'm not very far but, it's an adjustment and it has been slow but, I feel better more often. I lost 10 lbs in a week and it stayed off. I even exercised once or twice.

When I'm lighter and fitter, I want to start kayaking and taking beautiful photos of my beautiful area. I know I'll feel wonderful and I'll love what I become. I might even lose some weight! Losing weight isn't the top of my list though. It took me 22 years to get where I am and I just want to be happy and strong and learn to love myself again. It's not a diet, it's a way of life.

I read Good Calories, Bad Calories and decided to give up sugar (purely for health reasons). I was stunned at how good I felt. I started doing more research and ended up on Mark's Daily Apple. After that I bought pretty much every paleo book out there and read for a year.

And BTW, I am one of those people who posted about weight loss. I lost a ton of weight initially on paleo (30 lb in 2 months) and then hit a plateau. For 2 years. Not 1 lb up or down. 100% paleo (autoimmune even) with calories varying from 1200-3000 (all experiments in calorie restriction versus eating for muscle growth). It IS frustrating when you are doing everything right, in the pursuit of health, and still can't get to a healthy weight; logic dictates that something else is in the way. Or there may be a blind spot. Sometimes people just need help brainstorming what that might be.

However, I do think there should be a required reading list before joining PH! lol.

Well I started paleo when I was diagnosed with celiac disease which I probably had since I was nine. Dx'd when I was 18 I am almost 20 now. The health benefits of paleo never ceased to amaze me. The only downside is I become intolerant of more grains as time goes on. its great to still have so many choices while concentrate on whole foods.

I was diagnosed and extremely sick. My husband was researching and found the name Chris Kessler. That was how I stumbled on Paelo. I remember starting to read about it and something clicked for me, it made sense. I am starting to see the benefits and for the first time I feel my insides are healing and I have lost some body fat too and the stomach bloat. I no longer look 8 months pregnant. In the past year I have had 3 knee operations and I do question if it was all related, I no longer have knee pain first time in years. I always blamed it on the years I was a marathon runner but now I think it was all related to the celiac and the gluten poisoning my body.

I first heard of it from a friend who was a Crossfitter - at that time I was curious but not too keen about it. Few years down the road, a combination of bad eating, lack of sleep, high stress had driven my IBS out of control. Low energy levels, inability to focus, bloating after every meal, hungry every 2 hours, etc. It was this time that my best friend told me his fiancee (now wife) was on Paleo too, and he started on it and reported excellent improvements within a few months. Random minor things like his skin and sinus went away, which I knew bothered him since I first got to know him a decade ago.

So I thought this diet merits a closer look, and the more I read the more I agreed with it. It gave me a plausible explanation for my IBS which my gastro doctor could not, and it gave me a wholesome approach to recovery. So I jumped onto the bandwagon half a year ago and never once looked back!

Never bothered with counting calories since I'm still unable to tolerate that much fat (mine is still a protein-heavy diet but I'm slowly transitioning). I now have very minor digestive problems, energy levels are stable, I stay sated and happy, and I have lost around 6kg in total. There's still some flab, but I suppose I need to up my exercise levels for that. As a plus, my cooking has improved from all the practice, and my diet is waaay more varied and interesting than before!

I was sick for several years and getting sicker with terrible seasonal and food allergies when I was diagnosed with severe gluten intolerance. I tried all the gluten free flour blends, breads, and snacks and was left frustrated at the high prices and lack of taste. I started searching for recipes of real dishes that didn't contain gluten and found Sissons Primal Cookbook. I converted my entire family to Paleo and now to PHD. It's been about six months now, my digestion is a lot better, my dermatitis almost gone, and I'm down about 12 lbs. On a petite 5'2" frame. My ab and arms are toning up nicely where I'm more toned now at almost 50 years age than I've ever been, lol. Kinda gives ya hope for middle age, doesn't it?

I was doing research on controlling glucose without medication when I came across Paleo. My glucose levels were out of control, even following the ADA recommended diet, and I needed to change something. The ADA and USDA recommendations were killing me. I landed on PaleoHacks because I had questions and my husband had concerns that needed to be addressed before our household embarked upon this new lifestyle.

For years (since 2005) I've been able to shed fat at will by using the concepts from Seth Robert's Shangri-La diet. (SLD)

Last summer one of my wife's friends told me I was fat (again?) ... @ 6' ~220, yeah maybe a bit.

Started with SLD. But since I had a friend recently diagnosed Type 2, I also read "The Blood Sugar Solution" - Mark Hyman. He emphasizes minimizing blood sugar spikes & touts slow carbs. I began eliminating refined carbs.

About Thanksgiving, a coworker asked me if I was doing 4 Hour Body, I wasn't since I'd never heard of it. He loaned 4HB to me & I read the fat loss section. I added Ferriss' techniques and kept dropping fat.

From there I learned about Mark Sisson Primal Blueprint & I stumbled onto PaleoHacks after reading Kim Synder's Paleo bashing.

In my opinion, Hyman, Ferriss, Primal, Paleo all inhabit a similar space.... not 100% overlap but substantial.

I discovered Paleo through Crossfit. I honestly don't know how people find Paleo without Crossfit!

Our head coach (who is quite famous in the Crossfit world) explains Paleo is the QUALITY of your food--not the proportions. If you're worried about proportions/losing weight (and you're a Crossfitter), that's what Zone is for.

I don't understand how people think eating a ton of calories from Paleo food will help them lose weight. Calories are calories. The ONLY way to lose weight is to burn more calories than you consume. You could lose weight if all you ate was 2 twinkies a day for a month, but you wouldn't be healthy!

You might be surprised ... if someone is very overweight, just correcting the biochemistry with paleo can cause weight loss. My initial weight loss was 30 lb in 2 months, on 3000 cal a day, no exercise (I'm a 5'5" female). Now that I'm within range of normal, I am having to watch calories.

I stumbled across the "The Food Revolution" presentation by Dr Andreas Eenfeldt quite by chance when reading a blog post by Garr Reynolds (he of 'Presentation Zen' fame). It totally made sense and sent me down the Paleo rabbit hole (I'm yet to pop out the other end!).

I think I'm down there for good! Re Eenfeldt, the High Fat Low Carb (HFLC) movement in Sweden has really taken off and is going main stream, interesting to see how the population is embracing it.

I haven't actually started eating Paleo yet, but plan on starting in a few days, so here's my story.

I've been crossfitting for five months, and my fitness and strength have definitely improved. I gained 10 pounds immediately upon starting, but that was okay because I knew it was muscle. My pants even got looser. My eating regimen (if you can call it that, ha!) is basically a loose version of weight watchers. Throughout my dieting attempts I got very comfortable with the PointsPlus values of different foods, so it became a very easy diet for me to follow. And it worked for a while before I was doing crossfit (at the time I was just doing cardio like the elliptical), but I always plateaued around 170, and being 5'8" it is not quite in the healthy range.

I am around 175 right now with my muscle gain, but always have a "fat" feeling. I know this feeling comes from the carbs and gluteny food and stuff that people doing Paleo do not eat, because I have tried cutting these things in the past and felt amazing and light and "thin". I think what I've always done wrong is that -- just "cutting". I cut out those delicious but terrible foods and don't replace them with any equally delicious alternatives that are nutritious!

The great thing I've noticed about paleo in my research is all of the amazing looking recipes that one can make. So, I'm pretty excited to make this change, at least try it for 30 days. I KNOW I will feel better, I also know it will require a lot planning to make it work with my schedule. I'm hoping I can stick with it, because I know adding a better diet to my crossfit routine will make me stronger, lighter, more energetic, and just overall happier!

I did the weight watchers route in the past too. I can tell you that while there can be a lot of planning at the beginning of your paleo journey, it is less time consuming than logging points. Good luck!

Yeah I agree completely. The beginning of paleo is the hardest. You have an idea of what it is and it's just fine tuning that knowledge as well as addressing what is best for your body, the good old n=1 scenario! Mon, come to the bright side, there's green grass over here! :D
