Don’t stress too much about cutting calories if you want to shed pounds—focus on getting more exercise. That’s the controversial message beverage giant Coca-Cola is backing in its new campaign to curb obesity. Coke is pushing this idea via a new Coke-backed nonprofit called Global Energy Balance Network, The New York Times reported on August 9. Money from Coke, the Times reported, is also financing studies that support the notion that exercise trumps diet. But is there any merit to such a stance? Not much, says Rutgers University–based diet and behavior expert Charlotte Markey. She is the author of an upcoming cover story in Scientific American MIND on this topic, and spoke about the Coke claims with Scientific American on Monday.
Due to meetings and seeing friends, this week I have eaten out a lot. It’s not been so bad because I have been choosing to eat salads – the only naughty bit is the dressings. I haven’t found any apple cider vinegar dressing in restaurants so I have been opting for honey and mustard (this is a compromise because what I really want is ranch sauce).
There are so many factors that can impact your ability to lose weight, such as the amount of weight you have to lose in the first place, pre existing conditions, sleep patterns, hydration, stress levels, and amount of food consumed. I would recommend that you keep a food and activity journal for a few weeks and see if you notice any patterns (i.e. Consuming a lot of carbs, skipping breakfast, not drinking enough water, drinking too much caffeine, eating too much sugar, not exercising enough, etc) and then adjust as needed. If you want additional help, we at Paleo Plan do offer one on one coaching. Best of luck on your Paleo journey! Let me know if you have any questions!
I tried intermittent fasting, but honestly, I felt that I had LESS energy for my morning workout. At a minimum, I need a handful of almonds before I head out for a 6 mile powerwalk. I generally eat something more substantial when I get home, but I need that protein to keep me moving at a good pace.
Choose poultry and fish without skin and prepare them in healthy ways without added saturated and trans fat. If you choose to eat meat, look for the leanest cuts available and prepare them in healthy and delicious ways.
Chris PLEASE address why many many many females are GAINING FAT and/or not losing on Paleo. Could it be that high fat, even healthy high fat, is not a good idea for all people, especially women? I’m 42 years old and have been lean at 117 pound for the last 14 years UNTIL I went Paleo. Now, I’m up a pant size, lost my lean muscular look (even though I still lift heavy, stretch, burst/sprint train, get 8-9 hours of sleep, manage stress), and weigh 128 !!
I’m new to Paleo but transitioned easily because I had been eating Keto for 3 months. During that time I lost 18 pounds. I also began exercising more vigorously and consistently (4-5x/week) and that’s when I stalled. I have not moved the scale in a month. I switched to Paleo thinking I needed more carbs but am not finding any luck with this either. I’m sure it’s a macros thing but really struggling with figuring it out. I’m gluten free and very limited sugar (none added, only natural occurring). I’d love any insight.

Maridav/ShutterstockThere’s a reason that Colorado is the both the slimmest and the steepest state in the nation. The higher up you live, the lower your weight, according to a study done by the U.S. Air Force. But don’t sell your beach-front property and head for the hills just yet—the altitude effect can be balanced out by cultivating other good weight-related habits that can taken up anywhere, like walking outdoors and managing your stress. Case in point: Hawaii is the third thinnest state, and they’re the definition of sea level. They’re also pretty zen, thanks to the Hawaiian language itself.
