I have good news for you! Follow this diet as closely as you can and you will see quick results!! I had a personal trainer for 2 1/2 years and KILLED myself for an hour twice a week and cardio on the off days. I worked so hard they told me they wanted to train me for one of those bodybuilding shows. The only problem was, I never lost a pound. Not in 2 years! I was stronger, but still had a belly & big hips. My trainer always grilled me about my diet. He said losing weight was 75% diet and 25% working out. Take my advice and dont’ waste your money on a personal trainer until you get your eating right. When I finally ate right, I lost 12 lbs in 3 weeks. You will lose quicker since you have a little more to lose. It all starts with diet! I kept a diet chart and couldn’t believe all the times I was eating the wrong stuff. Good luck!
Switching to a 100% Paleo Diet after years of eating bad carbs is a recipe for disaster and you giving up immediately! Instead, try finding a way to implement a change or two along the way until you start to see those results.
For example, almond flour and coconut flour are allowed in the Paleo diet. You’ll have to learn how to bake with them (they require different preparation and cooking times than regular white flour), but once you get used to them, they’ll be a great substitute. While you can’t have white sugars, you can use agave syrup and maple syrup in baking. Applesauce is also a great natural sweetener and can be used in cooking but also as a sweetener in sauces or as a “dip” for fruits or veggies.
The premise of the Paleo diet is to eat the same foods our pre-agricultural hunter-gatherer ancestors presumably ate: fruits, vegetables, meat, seafood, and nuts. Of course, no one was keeping food diaries back then, so there’s debate about exactly which foods are considered “Paleo” or not.
What you are eating is dangerous. I was anorexic at a young age and the way you worded your post and the amount of food you are eating (especially the types and how you seem to be measuring the amounts), is very close to how I started down that path. This will be detrimental to your fitness goals in the long run, as well as detrimental to the child you are breast feeding.
Losing weight quickly is about working in harmony with what your body truly needs, and breaking yourself out of any stressful patterns or food addictions that have hijacked your daily life. In their place, you can then begin to develop healthy habits.
Green Coffee Bean Extract is a completely natural solution for painless weight loss. The one and the only ingredient is the name itself, and undoubtedly you can find its effects for fast weight loss from many medical information sources. Specifically, the green coffee bean extract has its benefits in lowering blood pressure and cholesterol level.
Oleksandra Naumenko/ShutterstockPortion control is the unsexy basis of weight loss. But while that makes sense in theory, when you’re faced with the reality of a gallon of ice cream and a bowl, how exactly are you supposed to know how much a half-cup serving really is? Fortunately, taking the guesswork out of portion control is as easy as buying a set of dishes or containers that are calibrated to measure out a single serving of different types of foods. Another option is to buy food prepackaged into single-servings, like frozen entrees. People who used outside measures of portion control lost considerably more weight than those who tried to figure it out on their own in a study published in Obesity. These are the best portion control tricks for weight loss.
Eating leafy greens is a great way to increase the volume of your meals, without increasing the calories. Numerous studies show that meals and diets with a low energy density make people eat fewer calories overall (5).
DASH was invented by the US National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute and promotes six to eight servings of grains, four to five of vegetables or fruits, six of lean meat (chicken or fish), nuts or seeds, and two to three servings of fats. Each serving is small; for example, 1oz (28gm) of meat 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil. Sodium is capped at around half a teaspoon. Studies show that the diet, particularly when accompanied by exercise, reduces weight and blood pressure. The experts say it is easy to follow and you will feel full on it.
I don’t think that I would do very well with this diet. I prefer to eat the majority of my calories through bread, pasta and rice. I have about a 5.5% body fat, and weigh about 140-145 pounds most of the year. I do run a lot, as well as cross train a lot; any time that I stop workout out, I lose weight too fast and have trouble getting it back. I like the concept, though, and will certainly plan some meals around it.
Katrina, for some reason there is no “reply” button after your post, which is why my reply is here. As I said before, I am only challenging the claim that Paleo is somehow easy or no big deal, which, I maintain, it is being characterized as such by the title “How to Lose Weight Without Trying … “
People eat to satiate that hunger. The idea that this changes is absurd. This was brought about through artificial means by the powers that be with addition of chemicals in food that make people addictive to food and cause people to retain more fat. Also the water supply got toxic with fluoride. It helps the powers that be that people tune out reality around them.
Just remember, it’s suppose to be a soup and not a meal, so you must have enough liquid. Best way, look where your veggies end up before adding the water, then make a visual mark 2 inches higher than the veggies and add your water accordingly to hit that 2 inches above the veggies. Make sense?

Does anyone have a shopping list for all of this? all 14 days worth all in one shopping list. Would rather buy it all in bulk in one single trip and then I can take advantage of any multi-buy offers if needed – I keep seeing list after list of daily plans but no shopping list, I have to go through it all and spend hours to find each ingredient amount into a spreadsheet and add it all together and buy the corresponding pack of each thing to the right size as required – often realising that it will cost me more than £200 a month just for the food and then refuse to do the diet because of the cost, for the unemployed this is way too expensive.
First, let’s get some Paleo basics down. The word comes from the Paleolithic period, which was over 10,000 years ago — otherwise known of the age of the caveman. The idea, according to U.S. News, is that “if the caveman didn’t eat it, you shouldn’t either.”
