cafelover Posted June 4, 2013 Share Posted June 4, 2013 So, just as a little forward, I have not started the Whole 30 yet. I have one more event coming up where I don't want to miss out on the celebratory wine drinking. However, for "practice" I am following the plan on a day to day basis. I grabbed another book, The Paleoista, for more recipe ideas. In her book, she says that to follow a Paleo Diet & lose weight (I have 12 lbs to lose- aka 1 clothes size to lose, which is the more important form of measurement, obviously.) However, I have read from her book that unless you are training for a marathon or an Ironman, you shouldn't have even one bit of sweet potatoes or plantains. I work out lifting heavy weights 3X per week and run about 20 miles per week. If I really want to lose those last 12 lbs, do I need to stop it with the carbs almost completely? I made these fried plantains this morning, the tostada recipe http://www.eatingforidiots.com/paleo-chicken-tostadas-rancheros/, and they were so delicious that I may just start to train for an Ironman if that's what's necessary so that I can eat these delicious pieces of heaven.
