Every time a post about diets comes up, this is usually the role I end up playing, anyway. Let's do this officially!
I've been on the paleo diet for two years now. I resisted it for a long time because 1) I loved bread and 2) I thought the people who were pushing it were jerks (my husband included). I was finally convinced to try it and never looked back. I don't interact much with the community, but I do steal all their recipes.
I'm about as lazy a paleo person as you can find. I still eat dairy, though I've cut way back on milk. Screw you, I'm putting Splenda in my coffee. I drink. I don't buy organic, unless it happens to look better in the bin. I do follow the main tenets of paleo, though:
- No wheat
- No sugar
- Stay away from overly-processed stuff, like HFCS
- Eat more vegetables, seriously
I've lost weight (about thirty pounds), and for the first time during a diet change, I didn't feel hungry. I always felt hungry under Weight Watchers, especially after losing enough to get a few points knocked off my total allotment. My hypoglycemia also seems to be under better control.
Any questions? Ask away!
