Many people’s minds change when they realise living a healthy life goes beyond the ‘diet mentality.’ They shift into more permanent thinking as eating a real food diet becomes less restrictive, more enjoyable, and more second-nature. Weight loss is often a nice side effect when this happens. On the other hand, some people are prone to getting stuck and not seeing results because they’re still under the impression that the paleo diet is a “quick fix.” When we look at the bigger picture, we see bigger results and our bodies follow our thinking. Remember the power of positive thinking.

Find out how to tell if you drink too many of your calories.
Also, to add to what Gregory said, you may be using a lot more salt than normal, depending on how you used to eat verus how you are eating under paleo (or possibly a lot less potassium). Try monitoring your salt intake and rule that out; a good method is to put a daily recommended intake’s worth in a small bowl/ramkin/cup and only use that in al of your cooking and all of your seasoning for the day.
