I've come up with a plan.  I've been trying how to better transition into eating Paleo as I've been struggling.  I've tried the "eat breakfast paleo" and then move onto the next meal, but that doesn't always work for me.  So what I have come up with is to phase things out, or to go paleo in stages.  Stage one is to phase out dairy.  I feel like I've pretty successfully done that and I'm pretty motivated to stay out of dairy products.  The next stage I've decided is to phase out corn.  I figured that would be the easiest thing to remove from my diet.  The two biggest things that will be difficult to give up are corn chips and popcorn.  But those are two good things to kick from my diet as eating popcorn almost always gives me a stomach ache afterwards and I can eat a whole bag of corn chips.  So I'm going to focus on that for the next month and then see if I'm ready to phase out another food group.  Wheat might be next, or cane sugar.  Both categories are going to be very difficult to phase out, and i'm not sure which one I will pick next.  Dairy was a tough blow.  No more pizza, buttered toast, cheese, string cheese, milk, creamed soups, Italian food, buttercream frosting, etc.  That was a huge category to remove permanently.  Some things I can replace like replacing milk with almond milk which I actually like.  I don't like coconut milk ice cream, and the almond milk ice cream is ok, I think thought there are better desserts to eat if I'm feeling the need to eat dessert, and they are expensive to boot. 

So now it is onto Stage two in operation eat healthier, feel better.

  1. Have you ever considered going ketogenic? Your cravings disappear and it is much easier to loose weight. The biggest struggle then in retraining your mind but at least the cravings are not an issue.
