Eggs used for baking can be replaced by chia or flax seeds soaked in water. Just put a few days worth in the fridge and pull it out when you need it. For breakfast type recipes just sub out for any protein that works for you.
In the modern world, stressors go far beyond emotional burdens and can include stimulants such as caffeine, lack of fresh air, sunshine, and natural movement, inadequate sleep and rest, environmental toxins, nutritional deficiencies, and underlying infections or disease processes. Exposure to chronic stressors leads to elevated cortisol levels, which in turn contributes to insulin resistance, promotes the storage of and inhibits weight loss. Reducing chronic stress may involve relaxation techniques such as meditation, yoga, deep breathing, and massage, but it is also necessary to address the root causes. Evaluating the cause of psychological stressors in your life may require major life changes, such as deciding to end a relationship or change jobs. Physiological stressors may need to be addressed by partnering with a Paleo-minded health practitioner to discover underlying nutritional deficiencies and latent infections. It is impossible to completely eliminate all stressors when living in a contemporary society, but you can make quite a bit of headway in stress reduction simply by identifying the root causes of stress in your life and striving to make progress in each area.
Dieting alone can lead to weight loss, though it is not feasible for most people and will not produce long term results. Dieting without exercise leads to yo-yo style weight fluctuations with a steady increase in weight over time. A moderate restriction in calorie intake combined with an increase in physical activity yields the healthiest, longest lasting and best overall results.
Studies have shown that increasing your protein intake to 25-30% of calories can cut cravings by 60%, reduce desire for late-night snacking by half, and cause weight loss of almost a pound per week… just by adding protein to the diet (19, 20).

The paleo diet is an amazing place to start on a journey to the best version of yourself, but there is SO. MUCH. MORE. that goes into it. It’s not just about the diet, here. The paleo lifestyle encompasses so many facets of life, and all those habits could be the reason you’re not seeing the results you’d like to see.
if you can’t lose weight and you’re “watching” what you eat, the most obvious reason for your condition is that you’re reactive to certain foods. Either allergic or sensitive (two different things). If that’s your case, you have to learn how to identify those offenders and eliminate them from your diet. But you can be reactive to a lot of foods and develop further reactive response as you go. Most of your body fat is “false” fat, which is fluid.
For very long time i believed, like most of us, that more calories in more fat you are, but it’s wrong. I have tried to change my diet and i have verified that’s wrong. Like you said the weight loss is spontaneous, even without doing sport if you eat right you loose weight.
Alongside exercising inefficiently comes the issue of overkill at the gym. Oftentimes, this is accompanied by the notion that we have to work out for hours to see results. It’s worth clarifying that in terms of weight loss, those extra hours are better spent getting your meal prep done. The famous saying ‘Abs are made in the kitchen’ is absolutely true. And as much as regular fitness routine will aid with the weight loss and keep your heart healthy, it’s only a small contribution when compare to what you eat.
I’m curious to know how Intermittent Fasting can play a role with this, since you mentioned eating more in the morning, especially proteins? I would love to eat food in the morning but then I will eat just as much later on in the day. So I’ve been using IF especially to keep from eating at night.
The idea behind this diet is that by ditching the carbs, your body will switch into fat-burning mode. With a daily allowance of 20-25g of carbohydrates, the diet encourages your body to tap into fat stores for energy.
What are you doing at the gym? Are you just doing a bunch of cardio? Because that is kind of an ineffective method of fat loss. Are you lifting weights and trying to build muscle? Doing so will not only improve your metabolism but will also give your body an improved shape.

Women who do yoga tend to weigh less than others, according to a study in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association. What’s the connection? The yoga regulars reported a more “mindful” approach to eating. For example, they tend to notice the large portions in restaurants but eat only enough to feel full. Researchers think the calm self-awareness developed through yoga may help people resist overeating.
I am starting my second one today actually and my friends say I am a masochist for doing it twice in only 3 weeks. Third week starting today, heck I was making my batch of soup yesterday around 2 am…lol
“My dog and I go for a walk every day, even if it’s for just 10 minutes around the block. When the weather is horrible, her enthusiasm gives me the incentive to get out when I wouldn’t dare lace up my sneakers otherwise. All the walking adds up: I’ve lost more than 50 pounds this past year.” —Jamie Altholz, Denver, CO
If you drink regular, go to 2%. If you already drink 2%, go down another notch to 1% or skim milk. Each step downward cuts the calories by about 20 percent. Once you train your taste buds to enjoy skim milk, you’ll have cut the calories in the whole milk by about half and trimmed the fat by more than 95 percent. One disclaimer: There are times when fat-free dairy isn’t the best option.
I have read this before and I am glad that it was confirmed here. I have two small children and live above cranky neighbors, so I can’t get on my treadmill. Unless, I want to risk hearing complaints from them or the main office. The only choice that I have to lose weight is to simply count calories.
Count calories. Weight loss programs usually require you to modify your total calorie intake. Counting calories and being aware of how much you eat can help you lose weight. In general, you’ll want to cut out about 500–750 calories daily to lose about one to two pounds weekly.
almost forgot, on an intense workout day you need to eat some carbs post workout. sweet potato or potato is a good option. else you will ramp your cortisol levels up and won’t be able to loose weight, on the contrary. vegetables don’t really count as carbs. digesting them costs more calories than they contain. on a non workout day, you can stay very low carb.
A lot of people are in “fat denial,” says Irene Rubaum Keller, R.D. author of Foodaholic: The Seven Stages to Permanent Weight Loss. “They don’t get on scale, they buy stretchy clothes, they hide in the back of pictures—things that stop them from owning up to their weight.” Getting on the scale can stop the denial. “It may not help you lose weight, but may really stop you from gaining weight,” she says.
