    I have been following the Paleo diet for about 2 weeks now. At first it was very difficult, and while I know everyone’s body is different, it took me awhile to feel “good.” I lacked energy and craved everything that was not in the plan. Now, I am seeing the results and that has helped to boost my motivation. Here are some things that have been helping so far:
    * Everyone in the house is on board (Hubby & I)
    * Accountability: Have someone ask what you’ve eaten that day
    *Celebrate when you’ve made a “good” choice over a “bad” one
    *Plan/prep your meals ahead of time
    *Have clean/cut fruit/veggies out on the counter ready to eat
    *”Eat for fuel…” mentality
    *Keep your eye on the prize! When I really want to eat something I shouldn’t, I tell myself I can have it when I’m on my vacation…LOL!

    Don’t forget to post your tips and tricks! I’d love some new ideas and motivation.

    My family has been mostly dairy free and sugar conscious for over a year now. We have been more strictly paleo for a few months now.

    We had a hard time getting rid of breads mostly because of the kids. What do you pack for lunch if it isn’t a sandwich? We’re finally figuring it out (everything BUT the bread!).

    We have all noticed much more regular energy levels. No more sugar highs/lows.

    So far it is working out great. We are probably 80% strict paleo at this point.

    We made some paleo chocolate ice cream, which was REALLY good. That is probably my favorite recipe, since I love ice cream (who doesn’t?).
