So what do you eat on the paleo diet? This has to be the third most common question I am asked. The most frequent question. Have you lost weight? The next one is how did you lose that much weight? You are going to get asked questions about this paleo diet what it is. Isn’t that the caveman diet? Some will say. To be honest I don’t know if you would call my diet true paleo. It started off paleo and moved to a simple wholesome diet like our grandparents ate. If you stop and ask your grandparents what dinner used to be when they were younger. Or your parents.

How I lost Weight 102 Pounds


How I lost weight 102 Pounds and have kept 63 pounds off for over a year.

As most of you know I am 46 years old and will be 47 years old in May 2015. In May of 2013 I stepped on a set of special scales at the nurse’s office at one of the schools I repair computers at. I knew that I was Fat, Heavy, Big Boned, Chunky, I had always been a heavier than most people. My weight never stopped me from doing anything I wanted to do. But that day I stepped on the scales the “special scales” why were they special.  Because most scales are set to a max of 250 to 300 pounds. It had been years since I had known how much I weighted. No scale I had or could find went above 300 pounds. Now it was May of 2013 I was standing in the nurse’s office and in front of me was a digital scale that would weight to 450 pounds. With a smug attitude I stepped on the scales “I am Fat and I know it but I do whatever I want it has never stopped me from doing anything I wanted” Then the display blinked a few times to let me know that I was fidgeting. I stood still and the Display Flashed 430.54 LBS  I was heart broke 430 pounds Only fat people weight that much I do what I want. I climb five flights of stairs every day just to get to the Technology office. I Moved all that computer equipment and office furniture up the same five flights of stairs.  It was like a hammer blow to the center of my forehead. What am I going to do? I have to do something only people on TV weight 430 pounds and they never leave the house.

I started to look back over my life and realize that no diet I had ever tried worked.  About this time I had started to listen to a podcast called The Survival Podcast its commenter is Jack Spirko. He would talk about everything from Guarding to Guns and everything in between. But his comments on the Paleo diet struck a chord. I started to do some research and found that the paleo diet is a simplified diet based on the foods that hunter gatherers could find.

The Paleo diet is Based on the Fact that our ancestor. Before Farming had a limited Food Supply. Mostly Meat and Vegetables that were at hand they would eat the foods in season. And stored the foods that needed processing like Grains and tubers for lean times.

So often the paleo diet is seen as a meat only diet. But in accuatiality it is mostly vegetables with meat. And the permission given to yourself to eat whatever you want and as much as you want. The funny thing is that your inner voice will test you. It will say things like are you really going to eat a pound of bacon. Do it!! do what you want, inside of a simple set of rules? For the first 30 days

  1. No Bread
  2. No Beans
  3. No potatoes
  4. No rice
  5. No corn
  6. No sugar

The Most important Rule I can give is if you want to eat the biggest steak you can buy do it! This will shut up your internal voice that tells you bad things about yourself.

The interesting things is about 3 weeks into this lifestyle change you will get sick. You will feel like you’re coming down with a virus. But this is when your body switches over from burning carbohydrates to burning fat. It takes about a week of being sick and you will start to feel amazing.  Have you noticed that I haven’t told you to do any exercise yet it is coming? About a week after you feel sick you will start to have so much energy you will want to exercise. Do whatever you want to do. But the best exercise is walking. Just walk for 30 minutes a day. That is how I do it. I walk with my little dog seven. For 15 minutes one way turn and come back home. This diet is the most amazing lifestyle change I have ever made. I lost 102 pounds total I went from 430 pounds to 328 pounds. I started to let some of the NO foods come back into my diet and have slacked off my walking. But I have maintained a weight loss of 63 pounds for over a year. And I am looking forward to starting again as soon as the cold breaks I will be back at the walking and eating my Vegetables and Meat.  I hope you try this Lifestyle change. It is the reason I don’t mind going on a diet.
