Long time lurker here. I've been trying to find some way of sorting out my severe OCD/Anxiety issues for years. I've tried CBT, ERP, NLP and REBT, none of them gave an ounce of relief, and then I discover paleo. I've read the science behind it (Emily Deans etc) and I'm convinced. Problem is I'm struggling to stay paleo for more than a day. It comes down to two issues:
- My OCD makes me pretty useless at doing anything. For example, I tried to fry a steak just now and I ended up having a panic attack trying to clean the frying pan (yeah this is pretty funny when I write about this!). So that means that I'm not really able to cook for myself temporarily.
- I've got a sugar addiction. I cave in after about a day of eating paleo, and sugar is always close by because I live with my family.
I reckon I would only need a week max, to get past the sugar cravings, and I would be able to start cooking for myself. I'm based in the UK by the way. If you've got any suggestions, I can't wait to here them!

If you are in for a long trip http://albertoaks.com/ which is hooked up with the Perfect Health Diet. Embarrassingly the owners of the place don't look very fit to me. I've never been, so I'm not endorsing. Seems like it would be cheaper to hirer a personal chef for a week and stay in a hotel.
