I would definitely recommend a cheat day if you want one but I would make it a paleo cheat day. Skip the pizza. Maybe have some dairy like ice cream. Just don't do gluten. There are so many cheat foods that you can have that won't harm your... (more)

Usually by Monday, we run out of delicious meat/fish/eggs. So we eat tofu for dinner. Is it okay for once a week? And also, is it okay to eat rice a little everyday? It's like 80/20. What do you think?

I probably wouldn't eat the tofu that often, but honestly, I don't really care for it anyway. If you really like it and don't seem to be having a bad reaction, I think a smallish portion would be fine as part of your 20%. If you notice any... (more)

Cheating shouldn't stress you out. If you want the ice cream, then eat it. Just don't indulge in the stuff all the time. Isn't there an 80/20 rule?? You can cheat 20% of the time? I'm not sure.

Relax. You appear to be intolerant to gluten and the only thing to do is to eat a normal Paleo diet and give yourself a break. Getting some counseling for your eating concerns/anxiety may be helpful, too.
