Help other people interested in the Paleo diet by commenting below and sharing your story! I have been eating Paleo for about 3 weeks. Extremely high blood pressure and need to lose weight. Will this meal plan help me do that or is there tweaking I need to do? So far I have only lost 6 pounds total, with an occasional gain of a pound. Robin I read from a health magazine a little while ago that just eating three stocks of celery per day would have a very beneficial impact on high blood pressure.
Hang in there I know this can really help you as well. Robin, If you are still on the Paleo diet I hope you have had success and stayed with it. My husband began as a new years resolution, and has found it the easiest diet change of life diet that he has ever been on. He does not miss too many things besides his milk. He is eating what he loves, MEAT, and has accepted that sweet potatoes offer more flavor than russets. I think if you are looking to lower your blood pressure, you will find this a good diet for that.
My husband has his doctors blessing for being on this diet. Anything that can help rid you of belly fat that puts pressure on your organs is better for you in the long run. Since being on this change of eating diet, the omission of all fast food, soda, sugar, dairy milk , and white flour, he has lost 26 pounds. His waist has gone down 4 belt holes. You should average pounds a week and that seems like what you are doing. Keep at it and success wil come to you.
There are so many meal options to try that are yummy and I eat them also and I do not need to lose weight. It is just an alternative to fast food and a poor diet overall. So I hope you have done well. Robin 6 pounds in 3 weeks is great, and healthy. You will be more likely to KEEP it off. If you do, the weight, and any issues you had because of it, will be back. Exercise is very important also. Just walking fast enough to get your heart rate up for minutes a day is a great start. I just started the paleo diet and these recipes are great!! I have made the frittata and the brownie bites so far and they are delicious!
Thank you so much. I have been following plan for three days. Going really well, my energy level has soared! Hopefully as I learn I can be more efficient! My concern exactly is the time issue. How are we supposed to prepare all of this food in a timely fashion? If you follow this plan how are you also supposed to have a normal work day?
Do you think once we have the hang of it that the preparation would be easier? Any suggestions for replacing broccoli, cauliflower or the other cruciferous vegetables and fruits?
I tried to avoid them because of my hypothyroid issue. Hi…love you 14 day meal plan, delicious! These recipes look fantastic! Thanks so much!
I just have a question; can the spaghetti squash pasta be reheated or is it not recommended? I just had the spaghetti squash pasta yesterday as part of my lunch and I froze it before hand and reheated it yesterday and it turned out just fine! I am so excited to have found this site! Hubs and I are trying to eat more natural, and so far every dinner for has been grain-free or mostly grain-free. These meals make me want to keep it up…I always thought Paleo was difficult and super-expensive.
These meals look do-able and relatively normal. I have been living the Paleo way since xmas and have found it easy. Not only have i lost 8. I have cooked quite a few new recipes from this website as well as tinkering with my own favourites. You wont look back. I have tried to make a number of the wheat free breads and have been a little discouraged with how they have turned out. My guess is that the almond flour might have been ground to long ahead of time and just left on the store shelf until I bought it. Also noticed that it says the flour in the store has been blanched.
Is this processing not going to take away a fair bit of the nutritional value of the almonds? I am changing my entire family to paleo, two teens and my boyfriend as well as myself. They miss bread and sweets, but these recipes will really help. This shall be an adventure to say the least. My husband hated coconut.
But he even had something I made with the real coconut and liked it. It is a great adventure for sure. Blessings, Janis. Great site with fantastic recipes. I am confused.
I thought Paleo does not allow green beans…. This is an awesome menu. We are both feeling great and my hubby has lost 30 pounds. Thanks for a great site. That was over 18 months ago. Love the energy and sense of wellness from eating this way. Planning ahead is the key. Cooking in large batches and freezing the extra is a life saver. I want to comment on your crock pot chile recipe.
Also, I often have a bowl for a brunchy kind of thing by serving it with two eggs, sunny side up, on top. Sort of a huevos rancheros without the ranchero part. I am just reading this site! I an 67 and need to loose weight and lower my cholesterol. Any comments?
I am 71 years old and discovered Paleo about 8 months ago while looking for something to help with some health issues. What a revelation. I dropped 20 lbs. I have always been told I look at least 20 years younger — but now I actually feel 20 years younger. I work full time and my overall health has improved. What a wonderful surprise. I have been enjoying your website and the e-mails I get from you. Keep up the good work. My husband and I have been eating paleo for about a year, and we enjoy all of the recipes. The only downside is I am now gluten and dairy sensitive.
This is difficult when going out to eat or needing a quick meal. I now have to eat Paleo options, or I will be sick the following day. My husband and I starting following a paleo eating style in September, I have lost about 20 pounds and have maintained that since early December. I think this mind set has really helped me stick to the program. Knowing that I have limited, not eliminated foods makes it much easier for me. It has been fun looking for and trying new recipes.
I look forward to your emails because I know something yummy will soon be on our menu! It took awhile, but I now have a recipe binder filled with great paleo recipes.
