When people find out I’m Paleo, I’m almost always faced with some sort of debate. I’ve been thrown into a lot of arguments over Paleo (I mean, a LOT of arguments). And while usually I’m thinking to myself, “Can’t you just let me eat my bun-less burger in peace?” I also start thinking back to all the Success Stories I’ve interviewed for this site. If you want proof that Paleo works (or if you need help convincing someone else) I’ll just direct you to the people below. Read their stories. Look at their photos. Then we’ll talk. -Kara
Many of these stories are from The 30 Day Guide to Paleo Cooking. Get our comprehensive Paleo guide, meal plans, shopping lists, and weekly tips for YOUR first 30 Days of Paleo here.

Paleo released me from this idea that going out for ice-cream will set you back six months, or cause you to lose all the work you put in. Read her story here.
Believe that this is one of the best things you can do for your body, and your entire mentality will change. You will look at food as something to nourish your body. This is hard, but not impossible. I love this lifestyle more than I love food. Read her story here.
