Hi Addy, I started eating Paleo about a month ago, and I feel so much healthier. Everything you said just about sums up exactly what I’ve been doing. I don’t feel deprived of anything. My mentality is that I am doing this to live longer. I have lost weight (8lbs) without trying. Sometimes I will get cravings for something sweet so I’ll make my favorite snack: an apple (sliced) sautéed in butter with cinnamon. Yummy!
By making a meal plan to lose weight, you are setting yourself up for weight loss success. Have you ever become extra motivated to exercise after a purchase of a new yoga mat, or running shoes? Making a meal plan is motivational in the same way.
FYI I have tried the HCG – couldn’t get past the first day on that, done the BFL diet, The Atkins, The Nutrisystem of which only the BFL worked for me in the past but I didnt keep it up because of a back surgery which prevented me from lifting the weights. Now I am desperate to rid this excess fat and weight and look normal again!
The AHA recommends eating fish (particularly fatty fish) at least two times (two servings) a week. It contains healthful omega-3 oils, which improve cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure and reduce risk of heart attacks, he says.

Many people’s minds change when they realise living a healthy life goes beyond the ‘diet mentality.’ They shift into more permanent thinking as eating a real food diet becomes less restrictive, more enjoyable, and more second-nature. Weight loss is often a nice side effect when this happens. On the other hand, some people are prone to getting stuck and not seeing results because they’re still under the impression that the paleo diet is a “quick fix.” When we look at the bigger picture, we see bigger results and our bodies follow our thinking. Remember the power of positive thinking.
To drop pounds and trim your waistline quickly, you may be considering a liquid diet. In fact, liquid diets, when followed carefully, can help you lose weight and lose excess fat. Because they cut your caloric intake to the bone, you’ll drop that excess weight more quickly than you would if you followed a diet that allows more calories. However, because liquid diets cut back so severely on calories, they may lead to the loss of muscle tissue, not fat tissue. Liquid diets also pose health risks, some of which can be serious. Before starting any diet, especially a very low-calorie liquid diet, make certain to talk with your doctor about your options and your overall state of health.
Americans use their cars for two-thirds of all trips that are less than 1 mile and 89% of all trips that are 1 to 2 miles, yet each additional hour you spend driving is associated with a 6% increase in obesity. Burn calories instead of gas by following this rule: If your errands are less than 1 mile away, vow to walk them at a brisk pace instead of driving. Or park where you can run several errands within a mile instead of moving your car each time. Walk every day and you’ll be 13 to 17 pounds lighter next year.
Sitting too much can reduce the benefits of an exercise program and stall weight loss. Unfortunately, if you work in an office, commute by car and watch a few hours of TV each night, it’s not hard to see how you could spend the vast majority of your waking life (up to 15 hours!) sitting on your butt. And unfortunately, exercise alone isn’t enough to reverse the harmful effects of too much sitting. When it comes to weight loss, getting active throughout the entire day, and not just the 60 minutes you spend at the gym, is a crucial component of a well-rounded regimen.
Although some people claim the cardiac soup diet, also known as the Sacred Heart soup diet, is a fantastic method for losing a substantial amount of weight quickly, others claim that the diet lacks vital nutrients and should be followed only under medical supervision.

Use one here and you’ll cruise through to dinner, knocking out any important tasks you have with ease. The beauty of the Paleo diet is the energy it provides you with to live life to the fullest and be authentic self.
For instance, some people can’t handle more than 25 grams of carbs a day and really need to try a ketogenic diet, or ketosis. That means lots of fat, moderate amounts of protein, and very low carbohydrates. Your body starts to adapt well to ketones (the fuel your body produces from fat in the absence of carbohydrates) and a lot of people have success with weight loss with this method, including Jimmy Moore of livinlavidalowcarb.com.
