WTG on the weight loss! Our household is more Paleo-based rather than adhering to any strict guidelines; we focus on eating veggies, fruit, meat, nuts & seeds. Nothing processed or prepackaged, no dairy, few added sugars. We do occasionally eat beans, white potatoes & rice. Once we realized my son needed to be gluten-free and dairy-free, it was just easier for all three of us to go this route. As a whole, we feel considerably better on a daily basis. When I do splurge on something non-paleo (like that delectable cheese platter that was calling my name!) I will feel adverse affects for days. Or break out like a teenager going through puberty.
