    Default Trying to do zero carbs

    Finding it really, really difficult, I love potatoes but I've managed to go without them, pasta, not a problem, rice, not a problem, though bread, bread is really difficult.

    I need to figure out if dairy is permitted or not, I know its not in a strict paleo diet, I've reduced my dairy intake but I do love different sorts of cheese and cheese boards, since I've become diabetic cheese boards are actually my alternative to having a sweet course after a meal.

    Is there a reason you're trying to do zero carbs as opposed to low carbs, such as 20 or 30 per day?

    Oh ok, well I'm not trying to be obnoxious but I've talked to many, many people who have reversed diabetes eating low carb, and 20 carbs a day will easily have the desired effect while being much easier to maintain. Good luck to you.

    I think if I aim for no carbs I might actually achieve low carbs, if I aim for low carbs I know I'll not achieve anything at all, if that makes sense.

    No one runs to end in second place but if they do they dont say they are disappointed with silver.

    Interesting approach. Super restrictive, though!! I definitely couldn't do it.
