Ditto all the good advice so far. Read all you can from the various low carb plans. The websites are great. If you haven't gotten the news yet, there's a webcast conference coming up beginning on Sunday that's free - all you have to do is register at

paleosummit.com

Many of the "gurus" in the field will be speaking, and it should be full of great information.

This is a great lifestyle. Don't think of it as a "diet", because it's more than that. What most proponents will suggest is that you adopt it completely for 30 days; see what changes occur in your health and decide then how you're going to proceed. This isn't something they recommend "easing into". You have to make a metabolic conversion. I've seen some posts on various sites that this conversion can make you feel not-so-great while you're at it ... and people quit because of that. But it doesn't last long, and when you're through that part it will give you lots of "feelgood" rewards in addition to better health.

It really does work. My endocrinologist has me on his version, and I've lost over a whole person in weight since I started. It's been a long road, but it's purely nutritional - no surgery or other intervention. I feel so much better, too! It's healthy. It's the way our bodies understand food and metabolism.

We're glad you're here! You'll find great support and help here. Good luck, and keep us posted on your progress

What they said:
And set your goals, and have reasons for them, You need to give it a good 30 days/two months to see what it will do for you.

Read the books, they help with the reasons for not giving up.

Goals:
If you want real results-they aren't coming for free.

Bless someone each day with my presence. Make them glad they are here.

Teach people how to love.

I would go and buy a book for one~ or read a few websites on the basics of what paleo or primal are.

This is a good one on primal eating: www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-bluep

And this is a great one on basic paleo eating (there is a bit of difference): whole9life.com/ This one also has a 'whole30' challenge that will walk you through the steps of being 100% paleo~ Its great!
