  • Howdy from an aspiring Grok

    Hi everyone,

    I just started Paleo this past Monday (7 days ago) after reading Why We Get Fat (Gary Taubes) and starting to read Born to Run (Chris McDougall). I feel physically better already. I haven't started any type of exercise plan yet - I've been pretty sedentary for a long time so I figure I should probably get my nutritional house in order and then start a walking plan that slowly incorporates sprints and lifting.

    I haven't been seeing a heck of a lot of weight loss - I started at 209 and am currently at 207 after a week on the lifestyle. If anyone has any tips or advice on how to maximize results and stick with the program, I'd appreciate them!

    Beginning Stats:

    30 yr old Male
    Ht: 6'1''
    SW: 209 pounds
    CW: 207
    GW: 180

    Hi there,
    Since no one has said it yet, welcome! It's kind of sad coming from me since I'm brand new too, but I figure I may as well make this my first post! I don't have a lot of advice, but hopefully we can stick with the program and see some success. Like you, I've only lost a little weight, and I "only" have about 15-20lbs to lose. I'm in it for the wellness factor too :-)
    All the best!!

        Hey, Man! Start that daily food/notes/exercise journal. You'll look back on it often. I'd also make an entry regarding your current health concerns, ailments, etc. It's neat to look back as they fade away.
