    Hi,

    I'm Alex and have been an idiot. I have read and read and enjoyed learning all about primal yet still haven't found the spark to fully achieve my goal.

    Alex.

    I have no idea what it takes to make the little green weevil in the brain change directions. This time around it was a trip to another country, which I suspected would do it and I threw some effort into making the trip work that way.this is why I tend to suggest some kind of change of environment. As we know, addiction is person + substance + environment, so changing the pattern by changing the environment temporarily can be very powerful.

    Haway man Alex, the anticipation is killing me.
    Even if your black and White I wish you all the best with your paleo life.
    It's a great place to learn everything you'll need to know.

    I don't follow football but my family are staunch Sunderland and I have drank in The Jacksons once or twice.

    I work in a factory and walking is one of many benefits, I usually do about 8,000 steps per day, highest so far has been 13,500 steps but that was a busy day with plenty of breakdowns!

    I think I will continue to focus on making little changes but the pace at which I make these changes needs to be picked up a hell of a lot, I don't eat crisps or have sugar in my coffee anymore but I know these are only trivial.

    Little changes are good. They accumulate and it's surprising what a difference they can make. If you've been used to sugar in your coffee and crisps every day, then that's already a significant reduction in sugar and veggie oils - probably omega6 loaded. Also, that's 2 regular habits that you've broken. I know you want to see the changes in your weight and waistline, but you've already got a good basis in an active job, so every little change you can make will help.

    Good luck!

    Thank you Awok,

    Big problem is since having a baby we have much less time for anything let alone being conscious of what we eat, so one habit I need to get into is making bait for work, even if it is a less than healthy one, once the habit of taking food to work has been cemented I can then filter out the bad.

    Hi Alex - welcome !
    For me it started the other way round, which somehow was much easier.
    Very well organized, and therefore strict paleo, at work. Much more chaotic eating on my days off.
    I could really notice how much better I felt on my work days, which left me in no doubt that this was the right thing for me.
    My tuppence worth for a small change - if it is wrapped in bread it can be wrapped in lettuce or loaded onto slices of cucumber - yes even butter and marmite mmmm enjoy !!!

    I had never thought of wrapping anything in lettuce, although it does seem like a very good idea! I shall have to try it this week thank you!

    Hi Alex. Gloomy again eh! If you like tinned sardines or pilchards, mash them up into a paste and roll them up inside large cabbage leaves just lake a wrap. Nutritious with omega 3s. You can use meat instead but try glynrick pilchards. Small can is one ideal meal 55p or a massive tin for 98p will do a fair few.

    Good luck mate, welcome to MDA.
