I personally make it a point to stay away from all starches (though, I haven't given up zucchini) while on Paleo challenges. I've "indulged" a time or two by eating 2(!) baked potato wedges with my broccoli and chicken breast once or twice a month, just to take the edge off (my cravings for brown rice and tortilla chips have never gone away, so I use potato to satisfy them).

While they are somewhat similar, Paleo is not intended to be a low-carb diet. The food selections focus on what is most digestible and nutritionally important for our bodies. Carbs from fruits and vegetables are fine.

I agree with MISSJ, you'll be most successful by choosing foods that work with your body. I can't eat nuts and fats as liberally as many Paleo folks, I just can't burn the calories well (even when I was training for a half marathon).

Personally, I try to save those types high carbs veggies for post workout but everyone is different in their need for carbs. Once you have cleaned up your diet and removed all the grain, legumes and dairy for a period of time, you'll see what your body actually needs to perform well!

I'm just getting started. Are sweet potatoes, squash and yams ok or are they too high carb?
