I’ve been on this diet for about a week now, but the biggest problem I have is the no beer rule. I know Tim does have wine, but I’d love to know exactly why beer is off limits? My thought would probably be 1) Tim says he prefers wine to beer 2) Beer tends to be high in calories (hence don’t drink your calories) 3) Beer tends to be high in carbs. Unfortunately for me, I’m an avid beer fan, and wine won’t cut it (light beer doesn’t either). Sooo what about something like Guinness Draught? It’s only 126 calories for a 12 oz serving and only about 10g carbs. There is some misleading information about beer containing a lot of maltose (very hight on the GI scale) however, maltose is mostly metabolized by the yeast during the fermentation process. Not to mention the fact that dark beer is also rich in anti-oxidants. So I guess I’m just trying self-justify drinking Guinness in place of red wine. Both options are hard to swallow for a craft beer nut like myself, but Guinness is the lesser of both evils to me. Does this pass muster, chemically/nutritionally?
This is my fourth week on Paleo. I lost 11 pounds in the first three weeks and was so excited. I gained back 5 pounds this week. I feel so discouraged. I have to take into account that my period is coming. But 5 pounds! Praying it is water weight. I was so happy with this diet and I do feel so much better. I work out 1 hour a day for 5 days. I have one cheat day but only for a dinner out with my boyfriend. The rest of the day I eat Paleo. I am sticking with the plan and just crossing my fingers that it is just hormonal. This is a long term thing so please let it work because I don’t really feel like I am dieting.
I am60 years old- have had a weight problem all my life. I have been on Paleo for the past three months and lost 18 lbs. I am now at the same weight for the last month- up, down, up , down, and I am really getting upset. Every day I expect a big drop on the scale, but its just not there. What am I doing wrong? I don’t want to stop the way I am eating- I feel so much better- not tired, lots of energy. Help!!

In summary, no sugar, no polyunsaturated fats, get fats from real butter and cheese, but most importantly, listen to what your body is telling you, do not eat out of habit. Eat when you are hungry and stop when you are not. If you aren’t hungry when you wake up, have a coffee and leave eating to when you are hungry.
That was 15 years ago and umteen diets later I still can’t loose that weight. Had some success with extreme diets that had me weak and fainting, but other diets that used to work like Weight Watchers, Atkins, low glycemic, you name it have little to. I impact.
It is called the “low carb flu” and is usually over within a few days. For me it takes 3. Adding some sodium to your diet can help with this, such as dissolving a bouillon cube in a cup of hot water and drinking it.
I started my journey just cutting carbs. I need to lose a lot of weight. Right now I need to lose 70 pounds to have knee surgery. My cousin recommended Paleo. I tried a modified version of it. The more I read and the more recipes I found here the less “modified” it became. When my doctor told me how proud he was of me yesterday I knew I’d made the right choice. I’m down 22 pounds. I’ve told my mom we are not on a diet it is a lifestyle change. She eats what I fix which is helping her with her weight. I feel better physically and mentally. The great thing is I’ve found recipes I can make and take to school with me including the energy bars. By talking about it on FB and at my physical therapy class, I’ve managed to get 2 other people to try out Paleo. So glad I found this.
Green Tea Extra Strength does a lot more than just helping you to lose weight. The polyphenols in green tea are also useful in preventing swelling and inflammation.

Omega-3 fatty acids are found in fatty fish and in some nuts and seeds. These good fats can reduce blood pressure, decrease triglyceride levels, slow the growth of plaque in the arteries and reduce the risk of arrhythmias. Your doctor may prescribe an Omega-3 supplement if you’re on a heart patient diet but you should also be eating Omega-3-rich foods such as:
Body composition can change as well. You can meet people who are super fit but weigh more than you could think possible. Would you rather be healthy, fit and weigh more, or weigh less with fewer composition results? Keep up the great work Debbie! Consistency is key!
– I will try some of the tips you shared here (although I’m confused about ‘not counting calories’ because I don’t really know what percentage of carbs / fat / protein I’m getting unless I count my calories consumed. .
If you are on a limited budget and can’t always afford the organic produce, supplementation is vital in my opinion. For if your lacking the minerals and vitamins that veggies supply you body will make you eat until you get them.
6.Serve Yourself Smaller Portions: Portion sizes have increased during the last few decades, especially at restaurants.

Everything you said is amazing but whats happening to me isn’t mentioned here. And my situation seems really weird. I’m doing the paleo and i go to the gym 4-5 times a week(weight lifting and cardio each time) and i lost 5 kg the first week which was mentioned up there and then 3 weeks have passed without any weight loss and on the 5th day of the 4th week i desided to make 3 cheat days before going detox (a coach at the gym said the solution was to go detox for a week) and on the third day’s (3rd day of cheating) morning i woke up with 2 kg gone. Just like this. (I go up on the scale each morning after hitting the bathroom, sorry for the extra info ). Can you please explain this to me and tell me what i should do… Thanks in advance…
The one they don’t mention in the article is growth hormone. When you’re asleep your body produces growth hormone, which allows you to build muscle lose fat. If you don’t sleep, or if you don’t sleep well, then your body doesn’t produce as much growth hormone.
The concept of this diet is shocking your metabolism in the first few days where you go from high calorie intake to almost none. Your body goes in emergency mode sort to speak and has to get the missing calories from somewhere (body fat). If you do exercise then you will burn muscles instead of body fat.
Rule one of The Metabolic Balance diet is you don’t talk about the Metobolic Balance diet. You may think I’m joking, or that I’m a really big fan of Fight Club (which I am), but it’s the truth. It’s all top secret because this diet is different for everyone. What works for me, may not work for you. It’s all based on a combination of factors including my family history, blood work, age, and more. But I will spill the beans.. .
Basically, on a Paleo diet, you want to avoid all added sugars except for the few that are Paleo friendly. Sugar doesn’t refer to naturally occurring sugar found in fruits, but rather added sugars that are found in many processed foods.
Over time, we tend to lose muscle tissue. It’s a normal condition called sarcopenia. For example, if you weigh the same at age 60 as you did at age 20, your fat content is still higher because you’ve lost muscle mass.
Shrimp Fried “Rice” – You’ve probably got leftover cauliflower rice from the night before, making today the perfect time to make this delectable dish. While fried rice ordered from the local Chinese restaurant is likely not health food, when you make it according to the Paleo diet you’re getting a wholesome dish that is full of protein and vegetables and healthy coconut oil so you not only get a delicious lunch to enjoy, your body puts these nutrients to work for the rest of the day.
It is one of the most common diet pills that are being used by plus size women recently. It’s also a product from Wolfson Berg Limited, a famous brand in the field of weight loss supplement for so many years.
My breakfast this morning was 3 eggs scrambled in tablespoon of butter, Pan fried turkey and 1/4 cup of cheese on the eggs. It really was a large pile. (I know the cheese isn’t a great Paleo input but I was hard pressed to find calories. In the future I’ll add lots of fried greens and cabbage.
