Keep plenty of whole foods ready-to-eat. Here's some things we do at my house... We always have farm raised boiled eggs ready to eat. Broccoli, cauliflower, radishes, black olives, green olives, and pickles are cleaned and stored in their own... (more)

You are doing the right thing. People that are more metabolically broken are more likely to suffer before getting used to paleo. Just eat lots of real, whole foods and get some quality exercise and you will be fine.
