Grain and dairy is what kills me. I'll be damned if someone is going to tell me I can't have bread or cereal or cheese. Cheese is what I tend to see slipped into pinterst paleo-like recipes the most. Cauliflower substitute mashed potatoes are actually pretty good too. And that's coming from someone who grows real potatoes every year for the soul purpose of mashed potatoes.

Losing 40 lbs in 6 weeks?! How is this even remotely possible unless this is related to having the aforementioned baby? Is this amount from before the birth or after? That kind of weight loss, if after the birth, cannot possibly be healthy.

I don't do the Paleo diet thing so I can't help with that but those numbers scare me. After my second was born I joined a program and went from 144 lbs (post baby) down to 110 lbs over the course of 6 months. This was all by educating ourselves on the health value of foods, making smarter choices and getting more active. We never dieted, just substituted healthier ingredients in the foods we already ate and nothing (i.e. no food) was off the table. In fact we are encouraged to have a splurge day approximately once a week, helps us keep on track and doesn't negatively impact our overall progress.

Good luck with it and I hope your weight loss slows down tremendously.

I should probably clarify what I mean by "splurge day". By that I mean we can eat whatever we want, not stuff ourselves to the point of exploding.

As unbelievable as that sounds I really have lost 40 pounds lol. I was at 217(way too heavy for my 5'2 fram) at the end of my pregnancy, I had my baby( who was 7.8pounds) and I was weighed at 6 weeks at 177lbs. I am eating, not starving myself in anyway, so I really don't know.
Slow is better I understand, I go for a hour ish walk a day with miya and i'd like to replace my meals with healthier ingredients, exactly. I was at one point 120 and I would love to get down to that again.
I know what you mean with the splurge day, my cousins are on this "diet" now and they look amazing, and just the other day she was telling me how she eats so healthy all week a cheese enchilada wasn't going to kill her lol

Okay, so if the 40 lbs included the baby, placenta, water weight, etc then that is normal & healthy. It would not be normal if you weighed that after having the baby and lost it over 6 weeks. That's what I wanted to clarify. The average person gains like 25 lbs during pregnancy and usually it is gone not long after birth, for me in the first week or two...it's not all instant.

I am in my 3rd pregnancy now and eating right and my Dr is actually surprised by my LACK of weight gain. She's actually asked me if I am having trouble eating! Oh I am eating quite well, just healthy and walking twice a day. I stopped the aerobic exercise after the 1st trimester. I am 23 weeks now, have a sizable bump (strangers can tell it's a baby & not fat) and have only gained 6.5 lbs. My lack of weight gain has not affected baby, she's been measuring perfectly in the ultrasounds. I gained a lot more in both previous pregnancies before I started eating healthier.

Yep, I typically save my splurge days for eating out. When I go out to dinner I like to get whatever I'm in the mood for and not worry about ingredients or picking a tiny platter or off the healthier/low calorie part of the menu...honestly, where's the fun in that?!

Right, yeah that would be way to fast haha I think I gained about 40 :/ I was just eating everything, granola bars and I was drinking milk, off it now. I ate pretty healthy, except for the occasional ice cream cone.
I was extremely swollen though, like my feet and legs. This was my first pregnancy, by the third trimester i could hardly get up the stairs lol! if you can exercise do it!

My mom said that she gained less weight the second and third time she got pregnant, not sure why that is, so maybe you won't get too big which is great haha.
CONGRATS on having a little girl Smile
Haha right, I like to have my lamb chops with the potatoes please!

Just looking for some healthy recipes, I'm going to the store later today was trying to get some ideas.

I gained a lot more my second pregnancy but with him I was constantly wanting sweets. My first & third pregnancies (both girls) I preferred salty foods.

Yep, I'm a meat & potatoes type gal too.

In addition to the healthy recipes, educate yourself on product labeling and what is healthier. So many products have very deceiving labeling that can throw off the uneducated shopper. Like things made with grains versus things made with whole grains as a simple example. Being made with grains not as healthy as being made with whole grains for example. Little things add up to make a big difference in health.

Absolutely go buy Practical Paleo by Diane Sanfilippo! I don't eat strict paleo, but there are a ton of really great recipes and spice blends you can make.
