I'm very interested in switching to a modified Paleo Diet. I pretty much eat very similar to Paleo right now, though I do allow some sugars occasionally (I love my mojitos on a hot summer day).
I realized a year ago that I have a wheat intolerance, so I have cut out all wheat and lost about 20 pounds. I'd like to lose another 20 pounds, but I have stabilized. I recently switched to a soy-based shake meal replacement, and GAINED 4 pounds in 3 weeks. Ugh! I stopped drinking that thinking I must have issues with soy, especially since my stomach was "gurgly" everytime I drank a shake.
My only concern with Paleo is that it restricts dairy. I have low estrogen (due to a prolactinoma) so it is very important for me to eat dairy (I stick to whole, local milk and greek full fat yogurt). Osteoporosis is a very real risk to me, and I don't want to do hormone replacement therapy but prefer to eat a healthy diet instead.
Can anyone give me some advice? Thanks!
