Hi. I am new to the team and now that I am so close to my goal weight (my tracker does not reflect my original weight from back in 2007 when I lost 50 pounds) and I am looking for a lifestyle of eating I can live with.
I am not into processed carbs (except occasionally) and have always loved meat! and raw or steamed vegetables.
When looking at the basic list of food Paleo recommends, I feel like I am looking at the way I ate as a kid and a teen (when my max weight was 110 even though I ate whatever I wanted (mostly meat) whenever I wanted (sometimes big meals and sometimes a day of hardly anything because I didn't feel hungry)
This pretty much sounds like I was on this "diet" until I got married and had kids. I guess it is the best diet for my body, but I think I tuned out my body and when I needed to lose postpregnancy weight, I did it with low fat etc and whatever the "experts" of the time were spewing. I should have just listened to my body years ago and patented the diet (LOL!) I am glad to see it works for many people and I do not have to avoid things like beef, lamb etc.
My one question was about dairy... yes or no. I like some dairy... cheese and yogurt, but not straight milk.
I am looking forward to chatting with all of you on this team page!
