How long has everyone been Paleo? Have you cheated at all? Start, then stop, then start again? What did you eat before? low carb, or SAD, or what? Has it changed your life dramatically?
I have been Lacto-Paleo for over 2 years now. I started with low-carb in March of 2007 after my last child was born, began experimenting with paleo that november, and was fully lacto-paleo by March of 2008.
I've never 'cheated' on the lifestyle (I'm one of those "do or do not" people) so for two years now I've eaten only fatty meat, a few veg (almost 100% cruciferous), heavy cream, butter, cheese, and eggs. No nightshades, no fruit, and of course no tubers, lentils, grains, or sugars!
I'm 45 years old and since that March of 2007 I've lost 155lbs and feel bloody great! :)
How about you guys? How many of you are long-term (relatively!) success stories?
