Welcome! I'm new too. I started on this path last Saturday, but I'd say I was only about 60% successful with this over the week (3 trips for ice cream and 2 servings of bread) --- BUT I'm down 2 pounds! I will be continuing this way of eating and see what happens next week.
Good luck! Stick with it - as my numbers show, do the best you can!

Remember Paleo is not necessarily low carb. Going too low carb can cause issues for many people. Getting a good balance of whole food protein, carbs and fats while focusing on adequate micronutrients is a good way to go.
Also remember there is no one right way to eat Paleo. You need to experiment and find what works for you within a whole food template.

I am just starting the Paleo way of eating. I have already cut out most carbs from bread, rice, etc to help wirh my fibromyalgia symptoms. I need help with planning meals and knowing what I can eat in order to get a balanced diet. I am excited about starting this new phase of my life and can use all the help I can get.
