I love my carbs, but could probably give them up if egg whites and chicken are involved. However, I hate vegetables, making the rest of the diet tough. Are there any other “normal”/non-veggie foods that could be successfully integrated into the diet?
It is not that simple. Your advice sounds like eat less/exercise more reduce fat. Anyone can join WW for that kind of advice. Weight loss is mostly a matter of steering hormones, which is really complex.
I am 5’5 female weigh 163lbs and I’m 25yrs old. I am trying to lose weight but it seems that i am just maintaining it. I do workout daily for about 45mins and i eat less than 2000 cal a day. What else could i do?
Live It! This phase is a lifelong approach to diet and health. In this phase, you learn more about food choices, portion sizes, menu planning, physical activity, exercise and sticking to healthy habits. You may continue to see a steady weight loss of 1 to 2 pounds (0.5 to 1 kilogram) a week until you reach your goal weight. This phase can also help you maintain your goal weight permanently.
I am just one person but this is how I have been successful. My adrenal and thyroid issues were holding me up a bit but its more than that. Regardless of what people say for some of us (like me) its calorie counting. Eat lots of fresh veggies, then good quality lower fat protein and a little fruit. No diet foods. Stevia does not give me any problems. I struggled like you and that’s what I have had to do. Yes, what you eat is important but how much is just as important. All these great paleo deserts have more calories and fat that just a regular desert. Weigh and measure for the first few months. I also found weighing myself daily for about the first four months gave me a good idea of how my body works. Id loose a few pounds and then gain and then loose lower than I was before, etc. In six weeks I have lost 12 pounds. I can’t exercise right now but just focusing on making food NOT a focus. I accept sugar is not good for body and neither are grains or dairy. See a good therapist to help you figure out why you have good issues. Good luck.
Changing our habits is the first step, but it is also the hardest. I recommend that you start eliminating un paleo foods and start experimenting and tying paleo foods, you might be surprised at how much you like them, especially when you start feeling the benefits of eating paleo.

Good luck with your weight loss! …Read more
I am a 60 year old woman, who is in good health, but I’m 20 to 30 pounds overweight:/ About 2 weeks ago my husband and I began a 6 week crossfit boot camp, which we go to for one hour three times a week, and began a Paleo diet. We are really enjoying both. I lost 5 pounds the first week, and have gained back about 1/2 pound in the second week, although I have changed nothing about my exercise or diet. Help!!
Plenty of diet conscious people consider a hot dog as unhealthy food and try to stay away from it. If you are one of them and looking out for substitutes then try having baloney or deli meat, turkey dogs, and bratwurst. Veggies can switch to soy dogs, Portobello mushrooms, lentils and tofu.
Also which day is best to do this on? Considering that I am guessing the Saturday when you eat what you want would tend to be an above average day for calories compared to the other days when you are restricting your diet to low-GI and high protein.
N K/ShutterstockCraving a special treat? Eat it, love it, and move on with your day says Lisa Moskovitz, RD, CDN, CEO of NY Nutrition Group. “Feeling guilty after eating foods you don’t usually allow yourself to eat can breed more unhealthy eating behaviors,” she explains. “So abandon those negative voices in your head, give yourself permission to enjoy the indulgence guilt-free, and just remember to get back on track with your normal eating routine right after.”

Since going Paleo 15 months, I’ve healed my insides quite a bit in the form of no more sinus infections, headaches, nor toe fungus. However, I’ve put on 9-11 pounds of FAT. So, my insides are healed but my outsides are not happy! Could I be ingesting too many calories via healthy fats? Here’s a typical day of eating:
Eating dessert every day can be good for you, as long as you don’t overdo it. Make a spoonful of ice cream the jewel and a bowl of fruit the crown. Cut down on the chips by pairing each bite with lots of chunky, filling fresh salsa, suggests Jeff Novick, director of nutrition at the Pritikin Longevity Center & Spa in Florida. Balance a little cheese with a lot of fruit or salad.
TRY IT: If after 30 days you haven’t noticed a marked improvement in your quest for a better life, then go back to the donuts. It’s important to give yourself a full 30 days before passing judgment. Your body has to adjust from fueling itself on carbs and sugar to burning your stored fat for energy, which can take a few weeks.
There are tons of options with paleo. It’s not just focused on meat as you suggested. You are totally missing the point of paleo. It’s about eating real, unprocessed junk food. If you want to eat lots of bread, go ahead and suffer the consequences. If you want be healthy and perform at your best and heal health issues while losing weight, paleo is a good option. You’re right, it’s not always easy–especially when switching from the standard american diet–but what in life is easy?
I have questions about the Paleo way of life if you can call it that or prefer the term diet I don’t know, but I cannot seem to locate a message board or discussion group. Only finding blogs. I know this works to lose weight, my boss who has a discussion board/support group for Paleo dieters or cave people as she calls it, but she pays $425 a month!!!! She’s a veterinarian, she can afford it. She started in February 2014 and by July had lost 52 pounds without exercising just occasional short walks. She takes no supplements. She has been taken off her diabetic medicine too UNREAL! I would’ve started at the same time she did, but I was pregnant then.
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.
Not much of a coffee drinker? Tea is also a natural diuretic, and types of herbal tea such as dandelion or fennel root also lend a hand. In fact: When a recent study compared the metabolic effect of green tea (in extract) with that of a placebo, researchers found that the green-tea drinkers burned about 70 additional calories in a 24-hour period.
Adrian, if I have been eating very lightly, am 55, and female with 30-40 lbs to lose, and bone on bone knee, is there a different way I should be starting in terms of what I eat? A year ago I was more toned, and in one year all my clothes are tight again. I really want to feel better is there a jump start to just get a few lbs. off in the next couple of weeks? thanks!
