The scale is a nasty devil sometimes. While you may actually be losing fat, the scale may not show it because you’re simultaneously gaining muscle, leaning out, and getting some tone like you’ve always wanted it. Your clothes may be loose, even though the scale is telling you you’re imagining things. Check out this story about a lady who looks way healthier now, but the scale has stayed the same.
Below, you’ll find our complete Paleo Food List. This is a list of foods and to what extent they are accepted as Paleo. Our guidelines are created using a mixture of all of the Paleo gurus’ philosophies and research, our own beliefs, and what is realistic to implement in your daily life.
Andy points out many paleo recipes have alternate forms of sugar. Duh, meat and veggies are easy to cook/throw together following the rules and this males up the staples of our diet, but we don’t need more than a few recipes to figure it out.
If you don’t like the taste, try mixing it with something that overpowers it. I like to mix ACV with Organifi superfood powder (http://www.greenpowderdrink.com) which is also really good for weight loss. When you give your body what it needs, you’ll find that cravings go away and you’ll inadvertently lose weight.
I’m a 53 year old female, walking disabled (pain disease with 2medical implant and on crutches/walker) I’m 5’6 and right now weigh 155.4lbs…I need to lose at least 20-25lbs as fast as possible, especially tummy/hips and tone my body..can you please help me???
Instead of using that small splurge, or missed workout to blow it all, hit your “reset” button. Just get over it, we all splurge, using it as a crutch won’t help, and making up for it by skipping a meal is not a good idea either. Just hit your reset button and move on.
Military diet facilitates healthy weight loss i.e. you lose fat and not water when you are on the military diet. This is because every meal of the military diet is a low-calorie meal with a proper mix of carbohydrates, proteins and dietary fat which aids fast burning of fats.
I’d double check the carb content on that Muscle Milk. It looks like it has about 10 grams of carbs per serving (not counting fiber). That’s 30 grams per day you probably don’t need on this diet, but depending on your goals, it shouldn’t be a big deal.
Most of the dieters lose their reins at the end of the day and stuff themselves at dinner. But a controlled 300 cal dinner can keep things under control. It is best to finish up dinner at 8.30 PM at night because it allows the foods to be properly digested before going to sleep and the body can have a long gap of almost 11 hours before the next meal – breakfast. Some 300 cal dinner options for the 1200 calorie Indian diet are:
The first time I did Paleo, I made a lot of almond flour things like the rye bread and also banana muffins and ate almond butter and a lot of nuts. I lost a ton of weight. This time I am not even eating that with the exception of making a Paleo mug cake where I cut out the butter and coconut sugar so it was low in calories and fat. I also only ate half of it as a treat so I haven’t even given myself the same allowed and acceptable foods that I did the first time around.
I started the paleo diet three months ago and lost 4lbs on the third week then on the 4th week gained it back. I’m very discouraged about the weight loss. I recently joined a gym and started spinning, so I hope this will make the difference.
The problem with both of these approaches to weight loss is sustainability. They similarly promote an almost carbohydrate-free-diet. The truth is your body needs carbohydrates to survive, as they provide glucose that balances the blood sugar and increases energy levels.
1. Take yourself off cruise control. Increase the intensity of your everyday tasks, from vacuuming to walking the dog, recommends Douglas Brooks, an exercise physiologist and personal trainer in Northern, CA. “Turn on some music, add in some vigorous bursts, and enjoy the movement,” he says.
“Breaded” Baked Salmon: Coat salmon with olive oil, whole wheat bread crumbs, mustard and lemon; serve it with side of vegetable (i.e. broccoli, sautéed spinach with garlic) and a whole grain starch (i.e. sweet potato, quinoa)
They should help keep you from feeling deprived and bingeing on higher-calorie foods. For instance: honey has just 64 fat-releasing calories in one tablespoon. Eggs have just 70 calories in one hard-boiled egg, loaded with fat-releasing protein. Part-skim ricotta cheese has just 39 calories in one ounce, packed with fat-releasing calcium. Dark chocolate has about 168 calories in a one-ounce square, but it’s packed with fat releasers. And a University of Tennessee study found that people who cut 500 calories a day and ate yogurt three times a day for 12 weeks lost more weight and body fat than a group that only cut the calories. The researchers concluded that the calcium in low-fat dairy foods triggers a hormonal response that inhibits the body’s production of fat cells and boosts the breakdown of fat. Add these other fat-burning foods to your diet, too.

I’m surprised at the number of people that care about the number on the scale. Kind of disappointed actually. How do you look and feel? If you’re eating healthy, and see fat that you don’t want, then incorporate some strength training. If you already exercise, eat healthy, and look good, why do you care about your weight?
Studies found that people who keep food diaries wind up eating about 15 percent less food than those who don’t. Watch out for weekends: A University of North Carolina study found people tend to consume an extra 115 calories per weekend day, primarily from alcohol and fat. Then cut out or down calories from spreads, dressings, sauces, condiments, drinks, and snacks; they could make the difference between weight gain and loss.
Keep posting your progress and results, it will help you and others on here. And feel free to ask any questions no matter how small or big. I comeback to my own posts and use them to remind me why I am doing this and it’s encouraging to read that I’m not alone suffering through this diet. I’ll start a new post as to my entire progression on doing it back to back within only 3 weeks.
So I’m new to the paleo diet. I love the concept of it, but I am a personal trainer, so I literally train 7 days a week, so my muscle repair time has been cut in half due to not having enough carbs. Any suggestions on what I should be doing since I’m so active? I eat sweet potato daily and other scratchy vegs but I don’t feel it’s doing enough? I wake up feeling like a train hit me, but otherwise I feel like paleo has helped with my IBS a lot so I would love to continue on it!
