I just ordered your book on Amazon. I eat Paleo and have lost quite a bit of weight over the last year. I used to run a lot, but I found training for my last half marathon was taxing and stalled my weight loss. I am leaning towards strength exercise and less cardio (shorter runs). I like the Jillian Michaels Body Revolution Program. I did it a few years ago. Do you think this program will help or hurt my continued weight loss, leaning out, efforts? It is 6 days a week, 30 minutes each, consisting of 4 strength workouts and 2 cardio workouts. I tend to be the kind of person who needs a regimented routine so having a program just helps. What do you think?
Any weight loss program must be able to diagnose and address what is broken internally. Limited exercise can be an adjunct to this if they diagnose and treat correctly. The problem with most weight loss programs is that they can’t diagnose what is wrong internally. Most ignore the tainted food supply and have people stupidly focus on calories. The more healthier people will have success. The less healthy won’t.
I am still persisting in taking PhenBlue now. I feel nauseated when using PhenBlue, but I have lost 12 pounds in a month. Although the result is not really perfect, PhenBlue makes me more confident with my body.
Charles I think Cordain is talking about starvation, which would be extended periods of time, say weeks without eating or little eating such that there is a severe calorie deficit, think holocaust. Intermittent fasting is typically regimen that involves a fast that lasts for maybe 16-24 hours, where the length and frequency of how you do it is varied, hence the word “intermittent”. It’s a good idea to determine the length or frequency of your fast based on how it makes you feel.
“Yoga has become the best thing for my relationship with food and my body. From practicing it several times a week, I’m now more in touch with my hunger cues—so I eat intuitively and stop when I’m full. I’ve gone down a jeans size, and my cellulite has disappeared!” —Jessica Nicklos, Morgantown, WV
Not much really. When I first went Primal, I walked everywhere. I just strapped the kids in the stroller and hit the road. I did CrossFit for about a year, and that was a lot of fun. Frankly, I exercised more before I went Primal, when I thought it was the key to weight loss. Now that I know it isn’t, going to the gym for the sheer fun of it doesn’t happen very often.
You may come to a point where you’re not satisfied with how fast you’re losing weight or maybe you’ll hit a weight loss plateau and it’s only at that point (which usually only happens when you have only 10-to-20 stubborn pounds of fat to lose…)
“Stick to it for at least a month. Often it takes that long for your hormones implicated in metabolism – and subsequently, weight loss — to start coming back to normal ranges. Eat three times a day and include a of meat, seafood and eggs; veggies and fruits; and healthy fats. Learn to listen to your body its signals of hunger and satiety so you know what’s real hunger vs. eating out of boredom or for emotional reasons. In addition to just food, consider how well you’re sleeping and think about some easy movement like walking to get help with fat loss.”
What is a low carb diet, really? When can a low carb diet be beneficial? Should everyone follow a low carb diet? Or, can a low carb diet ruin your health? After reading this eBook, you’ll be able to understand the many factors that play into how a person handles a low carbohydrate diet, and whether or not their health will improve on such a plan.
You may want to eat a lower fat diet if you have suffered from undereating or overexercising in the past, if you have a thyroid issue, if you simply don’t seem to do well on a high fat diet (some people simply don’t have good genes for breaking down fat), or if you enjoy sweet more than savory foods.

It is not that fat that can wreck your diet and makes you gain weight. It is the good fat that is essential for your health. Omega-3s, a good fat, is important for your mental and physical health. It protects your heart and brain. If you add the correct amount of fat in your diet, then you will get a reduced waistline.
For a hearty healthy diet, avoid trans fat. This means choosing baked or roasted foods over fried ones. Also eat red meat about once or twice a week (or less), and select lean cuts, such as sirloin or filet mignon. Steer clear of:
Your metabolism — how well your body turns calories into fuel — also matters. And if you cut too many calories, it’s bad for you. You slow down your metabolism, and that can make you fall short on some nutrients.
I forgot to mention above^^: When I was on my old diet of having a cheat meal once a week, I did not have my period for about 7 months. Now that I am refeeding instead, my period has returned to normal.
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.
*But you’re actually eating MORE FOOD. You’re just eating Less Calories because weight loss foods have a ‘low calorie density’ meaning they pack a small amount of calories in a lot of food (see rule #4 for below more info)
