Converting to a Paleo lifestyle has many challenges. You deal with the uneducated, the educated but skeptical, and the people who don't care about nutrition. You'll get strange looks when you tell people how and why you eat the way you do. People (and this is the weirdest part) will actually get mad or put-off by the fact that you have a special way of eating.

But the above challenges happen to those who are already firmly engrossed in to the lifestyle, aka "Practicing Paleo eaters" so to speak. But what about about the beginning? Transitioning to this way of eating happens (typically) with an overhaul of the kitchen and the cupboards. Most tutorials start by telling you to throw out all of your junk food. ALL OF IT. Because the first thing that will derail you in the beginning is temptation. Giving-in to the foods that you've unwittingly become addicted to, is most often the first thing that causes a person to fall off the paleolithic wagon. Trash the sodas, pretzels, Doritos, and the sourdough. Donate the canned soups, peanut butter, and rice. Just get the grains, legumes, dairy, and sugar all out of your house!
