So I did paleo last summer and easily lost 40 lbs. over 3 months with just following the diet strictly and walking a lot (like 10 miles a week or more of just walking, not counting step taken just in daily activity). Anyway, after going out of state for a family funeral and then the holidays I fell off the paleo wagon, but I was still eating paleo for probably half of my meals and eating low grains/gluten. Then I had some GI issues that sent me to the hospital twice and have had to eat a Standard American Diet for the last few months in order to get an accurate diagnosis. During that time I've regained some of the weight I'd lost, but not all (fortunately) - I think the fact that I still try to walk to work most days and take my dog for a walk on weekends has really helped.
Anyway . . . I am having my screenings done in just under a week and I'm excited to get back to paleo, but I'm inviting friends and strangers who have been interested in trying paleo or also want to get back on the wagon to join me in the journey!
I set up a Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/504561269 619821/) since I check facebook more often than I do health forums like these. So I figured I'd invite people from Spark to join up as well if it's something you're interested in trying. It's a closed group, so you'll have to request to join. It's free, I'm not making any money off of this. And you get to pick your plan too - so you can do Perfect Human Diet, Whole 30, 21 Day Primal Challenge, 21 Day Sugar Detox, etc.
Anyway - if you're in a similar place and needing to get back to paleo/primal - I hope you'll join us!
