  1. So, I'm 6 days in and haven't slipped once. Let's keep going and see what happens.
  2. Thanks for all the replies, as usual all very helpful so thanks very much. I have been on the paleo (militantly) for about a week now and I'm recording all the intake and weight measurements. I'll keep you all posted. Thanks again.
  3. Ok, not quite the rewards I was thinking of to be blunt! I like the idea of buying something like kit, I really want to steer clear of food rewards as they can lead to bad habits.
  4. I'm really interested in knowing what people use as a reward structure when achieving your goals. Do you have a reward structure and what sort of things to do use if you do? Thanks in advance. Rebel
  5. Legend, thank you Lefeux.
  6. Well done Stacie, you've come through a lot. Keep going and keep reporting on your progress. People here are always willing to help.
  7. Thanks everyone, I have now come to the conclusion (after reading the article Lefeux gave, thank you for that) that grains have little place in my life. I have already started the paleo diet and have been going 3 days now, hunger / cravings is definitely down and I'm losing weight so I'll see how it goes. Thanks for all your help guys and gals, really starting to love this forum...
  8. I keep seeing people writing abbreviations like STR, STA and DEX for example. Can someone explain or point me to a thread that helps me understand these please. Thanks in advance.
  9. Hi everyone, I'm sure this a topic that has been discussed time and time again especially from the Paleo contingent. I've been scratching my head after reading loads of articles about the benefits / non benefits of whole grain. One article tries to convince me that I need 5 portions of whole grain products per day to lower cholesterol and maintain a healthy heart. Others say quite the opposite and suggest that it's why a lot of people are very over weight. Both points of view can not be right can they? Has anyone got any good resources to help me? Thanks in advance. Rebel
  10. I'm sure this has been brought up before so apologies if people need to repeat themselves. What is the stance on chocolate, coffee and alcohol for the Paleo diet as the articles I have read have mixed opinions Thanks in advance. Rebel
  11. I've been toying with the idea of the Paleo diet for a while now and have started it today. Instantly I felt less hungry during the day. Normally before lunch I get quite hungry and have a load of food. Today was much better just by adding a load of veg with my omelette this morning. Going to do this for 6 weeks and see what happens. I have a exercise routine including resistance training so I will be interested in the results. I'll keep you posted. Rebel
  12. Capoeira does look awesome. Never done anything like that before.

    Morning start.

    Awesome, thanks everyone, do keep them coming. I'm getting really tempted to start the Paleo way of life, I've heard so many good things, from friends and this site of course. Maybe I'll start a 30 day challenge and see what results I get. Thanks again all.

    Thanks everyone, a real mix there. Maybe it's a good idea to explain what diet plan you follow?

    Morning start.

    I'm interested in what people are having for breakfast. I'm avoiding bread, pasta, potatoes etc (with the aim to losing body fat) but am finding a high protein breakfast is not giving me the start I need. I have a physical job which requires lots of energy throughout the day. I would love to hear any suggestions you good people may have. Thanks in advance.
