Thanks for your advice Katherine. I’ve been intrigued by the Roberts/Guyenet approach, but honestly what they are suggesting sounds like punishment. it’s one thing to eat simply, but no salt on your meat? Getting your fat from plain MCT oil? Going this far to reduce palatability sounds really depressing and reminds me of how I used to treat myself when I had a severe eating disorder many years ago. Are you able to still feel joy and delight in life while eating like this? Because if not, I don’t think it’s healthy regardless of whether you lose weight. I’m curious about your experience though, so thanks for posting.
I have found this to be true and just in time, I’m pre-menopausal at 46. I don’t want to gain a lot of weight! Can you address tummy weight as you age. This is the REALLY tough nut for MANY people as they get older!!! 🙂
I have tried to make a number of the wheat free breads and have been a little discouraged with how they have turned out. The last loaf of almond flour bread I made didn’t have very good taste to eat and even smelled off when trying to toast it. My guess is that the almond flour might have been ground to long ahead of time and just left on the store shelf until I bought it. I’ve read that it doesn’t have a long shelf life once it has been ground up into flour from the nut., Next I will try and grind my own flour using fresh nuts and see if it turns out better. Also noticed that it says the flour in the store has been blanched. Is this processing not going to take away a fair bit of the nutritional value of the almonds?
In reality, we need people to stop drinking sugary beverages like soda. Soda is the one consumable beverage that is repeatedly cited as having the biggest impact on obesity rates. From a public health standpoint, we want soda out of schools and we want cities to really decrease intake of soda—and Coca-Cola knows this and knows they are being proactive and defensive against taxes on soda and other limitations.
I have a bananas and or a apple once a day. I get by having dark chocolate at night (for my sugar crave and feel I’m being naughty). Try potatoes par boiled in water, then fried in pan with olive oil with cumin seeds and tumeric to go along with a steak. Mix it up a little. I find Paleo hard as I am always craving bread, pasta and dairy. But I am shrink far more than I have ever with any other diet. I have lost 12kgs over a year period, with absolutely no excerise. I am now at the point where I probably need to excerise to tone up. I have a further 25kgs to go. Those that are gaining weight you are eating something your body doesn’t like. Try changing what your eating and see.
You’re still hungry because Paleo/Primal is not the holy grail that many make it out to be. I find that a lot of the stuff that the paleo community has to say is just fluff and often does more harm than good. What I will suggest is intermittent fasting.That’s the only way that I can stick with primal, is by fasting 16-18 hours a day. Although fasting me to solve the hunger issue, I’m still struggling with the lack of sleep part as well.
A big salad of baby spinach and other fresh veggies, such as sliced carrots and tomatoes, topped with your favorite canned no-salt-added beans. Toss salad with about ½ teaspoon of wasabi (to taste) and 3 to 4 tablespoons of rice vinegar.

Just as you wouldn’t leave home without your cell phone, make a pedometer a must-have accessory. Research shows pedometer users take nearly 2,500 more steps a day (over 1 mile, or about 100 calories) than nonusers. Over a year, that’s enough to burn off about 10 pounds.
I do agree that our food nowadays is crap! Its a shame that it takes a part time job to afford high quality organic foods but its now getting to the point that with GMO we might not even be able to avoid it even with our best intentions. Yea, its scary scary stuff and its all based on greed.
“I used to skip breakfast, but now I never go without. I always eat about 300 calories of a healthy mix of protein and whole grains. My go-to meal: a sandwich with natural peanut butter and apple butter. It keeps my hunger down so I snack less throughout the day. In a little over a year, I’ve shed 65 pounds.” —Bo Hale, Tulsa, OK
As stated above, fruit does have quite a bit of sugar in it, and nuts have quite a few calories, so if you are following the Paleo Diet but not losing weight, check your fruit and nut consumption and see if you are loading up on those at the expense of vegetables and healthy protein.
Day 4: Bananas and skim milk are god sent and you feel a bit better, eat at least 2 big bowls or 3 small bowls of soup even though that now you’re really starting to get fed up with the soup. Come on, you’ve got 4 days done, don’t give up and hold fast. Only 3 days to go, you can do this! Leave the scale alone!
There is also good science behind why apple cider vinegar would encourage weight loss even more effectively than eating raw apples. In general, acids help with the digestion of protein, the building blocks for some of our hormones, especially growth hormone.
I started the paleo diet three months ago and lost 4lbs on the third week then on the 4th week gained it back. I’m very discouraged about the weight loss. I recently joined a gym and started spinning, so I hope this will make the difference.
The diet also recommends at least six to eight glasses of water every day to prevent dehydration. In addition to water, you are also permitted to drink herbal teas, coffee and unsweetened cranberry juice. According to Diet.com, some versions of the Sacred Heart Diet allow baked skinless chicken or broiled fish in place of the beef.
I started the Paleo diet about 6 weeks ago. In the first week I lost 2kg (I need to lose 45pounds) and really struggled with hunger pains during the night. Through my own lack of willpower and many party invites I fell off the Paleo Wagon and put it straight back on again.
