Saying that I have nothing to offer people who are struggling with weight issues just because I’m at a healthy weight myself is like saying that I have nothing to offer my patients with heart disease because I don’t have heart disease. That’s ridiculous.
Thanks Chris for addressing this topic. While I listened to PaleoCon I noticed so many of the “I lost 12 lbs without trying” were people who switched from SAD to Paleo. Makes me wonder if the simple act of -intervention- to their diet was 75% of the catalyst to their weight loss? Another driver to their weight loss is of course the satiating food on Paleo, as compared to sugar highs and lows on SAD.
Does that mean that those extra couple of pounds you put on over Christmas will still be hugging your hips come Valentine’s Day? According to nutritional therapist Petronella Ravenshear, no: “Contrary to the popular notion that we need to exercise to lose weight it’s simply not true.”
Although a vegan diet automatically eliminates many foods that are highly processed or high in saturated fat, there are still plenty of less-healthy vegan options out there. Plenty of foods—french fries, chips, and sugary candy—fall naturally into the vegan category, but aren’t exactly healthy. Plus, these days it’s relatively easy to find vegan versions of baked goods and other treats. As a result, a person may end up eating a diet that’s technically vegan, but high in sugar and refined carbohydrates. The limited category of things vegans can eat can lead to nutrient deficiencies, Angelone says, so vegans need to be extra vigilant about getting enough calcium, iron, vitamin B12, zinc, and omega-3 fats.
The ketogenic diet focuses on manipulating the three macronutrients, which are fat, carbs and protein for those keeping score. The Paleo diet is more about the food choices. You eliminate dairy, grains and processed foods, but balance the macronutrients any way you want.
For most people, the answer is simple: Paleo automatically lowers your calories without you ever having to think about it. When you replace a pile of bread with a pile of broccoli, you’re dramatically reducing calories. The same goes for replacing Coke with water, or any of the other changes people typically make when they go Paleo.
You wouldn’t feed your pet bird cardboard, would you? No, you would feed them nuts and seeds just like the natural food they have in the wild. It’s time to start thinking of yourself as the bird, feed yourself what humans found and grew in the wild hundreds and thousands of years ago, not “frankenfood” made in a laboratory.
The only exceptions that are allowable on most Paleo diets are butter and ghee. However, these should still only be consumed if you know you’re not sensitive to them. If you’re brand new to Paleo, we recommend at least 30 days away from all forms of dairy, including butter and ghee.

The only restriction on snack foods is that they be free of additives, preservatives, flavor enhancers, hydrogenated oils, excess salt, and added sugar. None of those things are good for your heart or your body. 
Most people simply compare the cost of a paleo meal with ramen noodles or pasta and bread and determine Paleo is prohibitively expensive. Sure, it’s more expensive than those foods, but if you are smart with your money you can eat a much healthier meal and do so pretty inexpensively.
This depends on a number of factors, including height, weight, age, sex, and baseline activity level. If you have a very busy, high effort lifestyle, you can afford to eat more calories. If not, you should consume fewer calories. For the average person, 2000 calories a day is the recommended amount, and should help you to lose weight if you previously consumed more than that per day.
2. Step it up—and down. Climbing stairs is a great leg strengthener, because you’re lifting your body weight against gravity. In addition to taking the stairs at every opportunity, try stepping up and down on the curb while you’re waiting for the bus or filling your gas tank, says Brooks.
Vegetarians have a wide range of option in this diet as they can include vegetables, lentils, pulses, cottage cheese (paneer) and yogurt on their menu as a source of protein, vitamins and nutrients. The Vegetarian diet includes:
Weight Watchers – a plan that uses a point system to encourage followers to choose healthy, filling foods – you can shed up to 2 pounds a week. Our experts back its ability to deliver quick results. Better yet? Those results are likely to last, thanks to the program’s emphasis on a balanced diet with no restrictions, as well as its built-in support system. Why not prepare for next bikini season as well?
Spaghetti Squash Shrimp Scampi – Enjoy the full flavor of shrimp scampi without worrying that you’re ruining your diet plan. This is a way to have a restaurant quality dinner in the comfort of your home and not wonder what’s in your food or how it was made. Quality control is an important part of the Paleo diet concept, and learning to make delicious food is key to your success.
Reduce water retention by: Taking dandelion extract, as it has been proven to reduce water retention, drinking coffee, as studies suggest that caffeine can help you burn more fat and lose excess water, and mind your intolerances such as gluten or lactose, which can lead to excessive water retention and bloating.
At the same time, I know there are a million questions to ask about the Paleo Diet, how to adapt it to a busy lifestyle, what to do if you’re a paleo parent and have picky eaters in your family, or how to stay on track when everybody around you still wants to eat non-paleo foods.
I had the same experience with Lexapro. I stayed on it for about 6 months and gained 30 pounds very quickly. I have not lost any of it despite trying various work out routines, including 6 months of training for long distance races. I’ve been on long term vegetable heavy paleo diets, I’ve done concurrent whole30’s, and nothing. I also don’t gain weight when I eat normally. I just stay the same. When I reduce carbs I lost a few pounds very quickly (water) and then flatline or even gain it back. It’s beyond frustrating.
You know the drill when it comes to losing weight: take in fewer calories, burn more calories. But you also know that most diets and quick weight-loss plans don’t work as promised. If you’re trying to drop a few pounds fast, these trusted expert tips will make it easy for you to lose the weight quickly.
I don’t really think the language matters much to others because were looking for details about Paleo.. not their preferred use of language. If you didn’t get enough from this article, that’s too bad… lots of other people did.
Vegetables are key in weight loss. I know that’s not what you want to hear but it’s true. Luckily on the Lose Weight By Eating site we use hidden veggies to cut calories and trick your taste buds and make it easy to eat veggies. I hide veggies in recipes like Chicken Fajitas, Mac and Cheese and Chili Cheese Omelets, so try a few and have an open mind. These recipes are all “picky eaters” approved, making them perfect for your whole family.
In the last six weeks, I have cut from about 180 lbs. to 165 lbs., while adding about 10 lbs. of muscle, which means I’ve lost about 25 lbs. of fat. This is the only diet besides the rather extreme Cyclical Ketogenic Diet (CKD) that has produced veins across my abdomen, which is the last place I lose fat (damn you, Scandinavian genetics). Here are the four simple rules I followed…
This is probably a dumb question, but is it okay to have a bit of butter with the vegetables, or are they best eaten dry? Also, I do see the logic of keeping things simple. On the other hand, I usually have a nice garden every summer, so I tend to have a variety of veggies on hand.

The simple act of consistently getting 7 to 9 hours of quality sleep every night (or getting a nap during the day if you can’t get that much sleep at night) makes it so much easier to stay on-plan with food choices, helps you intuitively eat appropriate portion sizes, and makes you feel more motivated to be active.
You should try to avoid fast food. On the first month, there are no cheat meals allowed, but after you get used to your routine, you could add one cheat meal a week. Make sure it’s only a cheat MEAL, not a cheat day.
