    Rosanna, this is an awesome study of your month of living paleo-style. I’m just about to start on this exact same type of regimine (doctor’s orders, no less!), so very timely for me. Your photos are the main thing, not the pounds lost. Fascinating that CLEARLY you were gaining muscle the whole time. Would be great to know your body fat % now and at the start. 🙂 Keep it up and thanks for a motivating post!

    One I was going full-on Keto (which meant no fruits either, but some dairies were ok), I lost quite a lot.

    All-in-all I think my biggest change was avoiding refined sugars and fructose altogether, it was really game changing for me. Nowadays, I reached my ideal weight so I no longer stress too much about it, but usually I won’t have refined sugars more than once a month, I just don’t need it any more.

    That said, I think each one of us should test and pick the diet that works best: we’re all different and we all react in our own way to different diets.

    Good luck with your tests!

    Very inspiring! It’s so easy to get hung up on the numbers on the scale, but great that you had results with inches and fat loss which is most important. That and feeling more energetic and stronger is what helps motivate to keep the changes longer term. Keep it up!

    This a great case study. You look great BTW and I see a real difference in the photos. I would love to attempt something like this but I have such a sweet tooth and I LOVE bread too. Do you think for a first-timer that it would be best to try a shorter time frame such as as a week?

    I love people who are real about their struggles and triumphs. Thank you for being an inspiration and showing us that there is more to the story than lost pounds.

    Feeling very inspired – well done. If only the kale salad and walnuts were as appealing as the bagels and biscuits hiding in my cupboard. I will be following your journey

    Hi Rosanna! I am a gluten addict and have absolutely no willpower! How do you deal with that? Just remove any sign of gluten in the house?

  8. Enjoyed reading this, Rosanna! It’s a helpful reminder for me to re-boot a bit.

    I gave up gluten for weight loss and was surprised that so many other minor health irritations went away. I was even more surprised that I don’t miss it that much. Dairy, it turns out, is harder for me to give up, but it also helps me feel better.

    Ultimately, it’s the sugar craving that’s the hardest to kill. 😉
