I purchased Chris Kresser's new book, Your Personal Paleo Code, and really like it because it seems to stress tailoring it your individual situation instead of a one size fits all philosophy.  I also liked the fact that when he mentioned how many carbs you can consume in a certain situation, he gave specific examples of foods that would reach that limit.   I can't tell you how frustrated I felt when other authors did that and made you scramble for the information.

 

However, I have decided to postpone implementing most of his advice until after the surgery.  I am simply dealing with too much stress that makes it impossible for me to implement a new plan.

 

However, my plan is to cut out junk food and all grains, even ones that are gluten free.  I am eating legumes and not soaking them because they work for me.

 

What was encouraging was that yesterday, even though I ate a cookie, I had no desire to have any more which I credit to my diet.  I think it is really working.

 

And I plan to juice.

 

Anyway, if you're wondeing what another paleo book will do for you if you have purchased several as I have, I totally understand your concerns.   But I do feel this one is different and alot more understandable.
