Plan and prep meals and snacks in advance: This diet can be hard to follow if you’re on the go or only have time for a quick bite. Having a Paleo-friendly meals and snacks at the ready will help you stick with it.
Sounds great, but eating the same 3-4 meals cycle after cycle is going to get BORING! Also, what do you have to say about the idea that men’s metabolic rates generally allow them to lose weight faster/easier? Thanks.
Even if you try to eat homemade as much as possible, unavoidable situations—like a client dinner—are bound to pop up. When that happens, find ways to make them work for you (make dining out less stressful with these must-follow rules). Scope out the menu or call the restaurant ahead of time to figure out what you can order. Or, if it’s a situation where people are less likely to notice that you’re not nibbling (like a cocktail party), just eat before you go and sip something Whole30-approved that could pass for a mixed drink, like seltzer with lime.
Weight loss may happen very slowly. Most days when I get on the scale I see nothing but the usual water weight fluctuations. All I can say is that some time during the year, I will drop 15 or 20 pounds. Do you think you could detect a weight loss of 1/2 pound per week? Probably not when you fluctuate a few pounds daily anyway.

I have looked at many websites about weight loss et c. but I have to find one that is suitable for people over 50 : the age when you have to start considering gout [uric acid level] as important as anything – basically it means no legumes and care to be taken with the type and quantity of meat.
If you’re feeling tired all the time, try adding some salt to your food. Going from a processed, high sodium diet to a paleo diet you will very often end up eating too little sodium, which is an essential nutrient.
Tuna Avocado Lettuce Wraps – With the avocado you’re getting fiber, healthy fat, and potassium, and the tuna provides omega-3s and protein. An awesome duo!

Works great when you’ve had a big and satisfying breakfast and just need something to hold you over till snacktime or dinnertime.

Get into the habit of swapping high-fat for low-fat foods while gaining the support of fellow dieters at weekly group meetings. This diet plan to lose weight aims to aid weight loss at a rate of 1-2lb a week.
I recommend Saturdays as your “Dieters Gone Wild” day. I am allowed to eat whatever I want on Saturdays, and I go out of my way to eat ice cream, Snickers, Take 5, and all of my other vices in excess. I make myself a little sick and don’t want to look at any of it for the rest of the week. Paradoxically, dramatically spiking caloric intake in this way once per week increases fat loss by ensuring that your metabolic rate (thyroid function, etc.) doesn’t downregulate from extended caloric restriction. That’s right: eating pure crap can help you lose fat. Welcome to Utopia.
I started looking what was up and I found the slightly more extreme Bulletproof diet of 70% fat, 20% protein and 10% vegetabley carbs. So I tried that out, made some of the “Fat Bomb” treats and kept them in my freezer and I continued to loose an additional 40 lbs over a few months. No exercise, although that would have helped. The diet claims its not necessary to exercise to loose weight if you are on this diet, which turned out to be completely true. Now if anyone is like me, I did not want to go to a gym as an excessively flabby person (or EFP if I may) so it was great to first loose weight sitting at home, doing collegely study-like things, reading, video games, etc and then be able to start exercising (I chose swimming because its fun and I have large breasts that make it hard to run in public, not bragging but very true nonetheless. They are all submerged when you swim). I gained confidence and even competed in the cosplay contest in Salt Lake City ComicCon 2015 as a Borg drone and won second place (that is bragging). I continued on the diet simply because my BRAIN WOKE UP! I could think so much clearer on a carbless diet and I swear grades went up because of it. The greatest difference was my ability to focus on things. I went from focus-of-a-knat to focus-of-a-cat (I assume they are good focusers?). So that was, after the weight loss, the reason I kept on the diet. But I often break from it for icecream. Hopefully that’s not going to turn the tides on me…
I’ve always loved sweets. I’ve come up with paleo versions of my favorites and will make things like gluten-free shortbread cookies from scratch, using rice flour and tapioca. I still have sugar occasionally. I just don’t buy prepackaged garbage or chocolate bars anymore. I eat 85% Green & Black’s Organic Chocolate almost every day and on days I’m feeling indulgent, I’ll have some 70%. I even ate some milk chocolate over Christmas and Easter. I don’t consider it falling off the paleo wagon. My treats are planned out. I indulge.
With a lap band, sometimes volume of food a problem. How important is it to eat a food from all three groups-protein, legumes, veggies- at every meal. Sometimes i’m doing well to get 2 of the groups consumed. Weight loss is going well, about 15 pounds in 3 weeks. Have had at least 1 person daily comment about my weightloss. Of the 3 groups, which is better to leave out or should I alternate leaving out veggies and legumes every other meal. Don’t think it would be wise to leave out protein. Oh, I never get hungary, is it ok to skip a meal. Lunch or dinner I can skip occasionaly, but I never skip breakfast even tho breakfast is the most difficult meal to eat due to the lapband. I appreciate answers from anyone.
