This Paleo transition story is from Nicole Howze – over 7 days this spring, Nicole and her family of five completed a 7-day Paleo challenge. In this post, she shares with us the ups and downs of that 7-day transition, including some of the delicious foods they ate.
For some, transitioning to the Paleo lifestyle may seem like a piece of cake (Paleo friendly, that is), and may not seem like much of a challenge, but for most, especially those who are used to the “SAD” (Standard American Diet) way of eating, switching to a way of eating that seems to eliminate so many options, can be a huge undertaking that may at first appear almost impossible.
So then the question becomes, why would you and your family of five decide to embark on such an adventure if it seems like such an unattainable goal?
Well, for my family, that answer is simple. We needed a change in how we viewed our everyday way of eating and we needed to understand the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
My husband and I felt Paleo was the best way to eat based on the research I have done over the years, and based on the fact that when I have committed to Paleo in the past, I felt amazing inside and out. My father, who is a personal trainer, has also followed this way of eating for over 2 years now and feels great, too.
So, on May 31, 2016, the whole family (Rob, my 41-year old husband, who is not overweight, but eats unhealthy, myself who is 35 and overweight, pre-diabetic, on high blood pressure meds, RJ, who is 13 and overweight slightly, Harmony, who is 10 and a junk-food junkie, and Melody, who is 3 and open to anything) began transitioning to a Paleo lifestyle.
Here’s all of us:
We decided to do a 7-day Paleo challenge from Tuesday to Tuesday, and in this post I’m going to detail how that transition went (the ups and the downs).

We know many of you may have nut allergies or seed allergies, so we’ve intentionally found several nut-free and seed-free ketogenic bread recipes for you to enjoy.
All of the keto bread recipes in this section use coconut flour instead of a nut or seed flour. For most nut-allergy sufferers, coconut flour is a great alternative for baking with. Also, coconut flour is low in carbohydrates so these breads can be enjoyed without kicking you out of ketosis.
If you’re not familiar with coconut flour, then it’s flour made from ground dried coconut meat. Most of the oils is also pressed out of the coconut meat along with the water, so coconut flour is mostly fiber!
When cooking with coconut flour, note that it does not behave like other flours because it doesn’t have hardly any fat or protein in it. So, if you don’t add some sort of binder and some sort of fat to the recipe, then you’ll end up creating something that falls apart and tastes really dry. Most low-carb bread recipes using just coconut flour will also use a lot of eggs as the eggs provide protein and fats to counteract the lack of those components in coconut flour. That’s why bread made using coconut flour can sometimes taste a bit eggy unfortunately.
Whenever we start a new diet for weight loss, whether it’s Paleo, keto, low-carb, vegetarian, Mediterranean, or something else, it’s always really exciting when you drop a bunch of weight in the first week of starting the diet. But are you actually losing fat, or is it just water weight that you’re dropping?
In this post, I’ll explain what is water weight, what causes water retention in your body, ways to check if you’re just losing water weight, and how you can start actually losing fat rather than just water.

If you don’t like using stevia, then just add in a 1-2 tablespoons of raw honey instead. Of course, if you’re sticking to a ketogenic diet then you’ll need to take those extra grams of carbs into account.
You’re tired and dizzy, you crave sugar, bread, pasta, and your mind wanders like crazy. You just started a ketogenic diet (or a Paleo or other low carb diet) and you’re suspicious if your new diet is making you feeling this crappy.
Removing carbohydrates from your diet all of a sudden may well be the reason why you’re barely able to concentrate on this sentence! This can happen even on a Paleo diet if you remove too many carbs from your diet. And all this feeling of crappiness is due to something people call Keto Flu (or Carb Flu). Read on to find out what is keto flu, how long keto flu lasts, and of course, how to cure keto flu.

If you're on a low carb diet or a ketogenic diet, then you might want to know exactly how many carbs you're taking in daily. And while nuts are generally pretty low in carbohydrates, there are some that are shockingly high in carbs like pumpkin seeds and chestnuts.
There are also other health concerns with nuts and seeds (like the fact that they are high in polyunsaturated fats and anti-nutrients), so try not to overeat them on keto or on any other diet.
We've listed below the carbohydrate content of various nuts and seeds. We've also calculated the net carbohydrate count for you.
Net Carbs = Total Carbs - Fiber

This isn’t some article persuading you that the ketogenic diet is the best one in existence and that you should go try keto today or you’ll be missing out on some great life-changing phenomena! But, if you have been considering a ketogenic diet for weight loss, then it behooves you to learn the facts and figure out if you’re one of the people that a keto diet could benefit.
I’ve often gotten asked what the difference between a Paleo and Gluten-Free diet is, and so in this post, I hope to get across to you the main differences as well as why I think Paleo is generally better than GF despite some similarities.
There’s also an infographic down below – please feel free to pin or embed it on your own website.
I’ll start by quickly defining each diet, and then the section after that will list the main differences between Paleo and Gluten-Free.
Generally, most people who are on a gluten-free diet just avoid gluten. So you’ve probably seen in health food markets or even in your local supermarket tons of packaged foods labeled gluten-free (or GF). What that means is that they don’t contain the protein called gluten, which is found in grains like wheat, barley, rye.
Often, instead of wheat, these gluten-free products contain other grains. So, gluten-free bread may be made from rice flour instead, and to make up for the taste difference, gluten-free packaged goods often contain additional sugar, preservatives, coloring, seed oils, etc.
I know this is a generalization since many diets, including Paleo, Primal, and most versions of low carb or keto are also gluten-free diets. And healthy kale chips can labeled gluten-free too.
But, gluten-free just means no-gluten. It doesn’t necessarily mean anything else. And while gluten is probably problematic regardless of whether you’re celiac or not, it’s not the only food that could be problematic to your health and weight.
Did you know that it takes about 540 peanuts to make a 12-ounce jar of peanut butter? That’s a lot of peanuts concentrated into one jar. So if you’re eating a lot of peanut butter, it’s best to know just how healthy it is for you.
Cashews are a fascinating food.
Botanically, they are a master of disguise.
They split in half like a legume, but they are not a legume.
They look sort of like a nut and grow on a tree, but they are not a tree nut.
And the red juicy pear looking thing that grows on the same tree as them looks like a fruit, but it’s not actually a fruit.
From a culinary standpoint, they are also fascinating.
Sure, you can grind them into a flour like other nuts. You can also use them whole in various dishes. But what’s most interesting is the fact you can grind them and mix them with water to form a cream cheese like substance that you can then put on top of pizzas or use as cake icing! It’s one of the foods loved by both vegans and Paleo-eaters!
I hope you’re also getting fascinated about this fake-nut…
One of the questions I frequently get asked from people just starting a Paleo diet is “why do I feel so weak when I start Paleo?”
