(calories taken in) = (calories spent). That means that your current weight is normal for your diet+exercises, and will stay this way. The only way to lose extra is to consume less or to exercise more. If you change your meals (for example, you have 4 pieces of chicken for every one of your meat intake, so now you have only 3), or increase your exercise (add 15 more minutes of walking every day) then you’ll go down a bit more. It’s all a balancing act : )
That was about 15 years ago and umteen diets later I still can’t loose that weight. Had some success with extreme diets that had me weak and fainting, but other diets that used to work like Weight Watchers, Atkins, low glycemic, you name it have little to. I impact.

Between one thing and another, there are several perfectly reasonable situations that might make exercise difficult or impossible. But non-exercisers of the world, take heart: yes, you can still lose weight without breaking a sweat.
When did you start noticing the weight loss? I’m on day 3 tomorrow and I’m still at the same weight. I did fry mushrooms onion asparagus broccoli colliflower and peppers tonight, no butter just Braggs seasoning which is like a soy sauce but not… and of course the soup.. it definitely filled me up because I forgot to eat the baked potato. I’m curious if I should only be eating raw vegetables though.. I can get creative to make it easier but maybe it shouldn’t be easy to get the results I want?
Clean eating is the best described as removing all processed, artificial foods from your diet and focusing on healthy, whole, unprocessed foods. Your body is from nature, bring it back to nature and reap the rewards of eating clean, like living a longer, healthier life, have great glowing skin and hair, fast weight loss and healthy weight maintenance.
If you have serious health problems because of your weight, your doctor may suggest weight-loss surgery or medications for you. In this case, your doctor will discuss the potential benefits and the possible risks with you.
Members are provided with a list of ‘free’ foods, which they can eat at will, and ‘syn’ foods, which are restricted but not completely outlawed. The idea is to persuade dieters away from high-fat foods without asking them to radically change their eating habits.
Set goals to keep you motivated. Short-term goals, like wanting to fit into a bikini for the summer, usually don’t work as well as wanting to feel more confident or become healthier for your children’s sakes. When temptation strikes, focus on the benefits you’ll reap from being healthier.
Don’t sweat it though, because you can learn all about protein, carbs and fat, and get all of the detail and explanation you desire by checking out the 3 phases of this completely free and non-commercial weight loss plan right here:
Drink water, tea and and other no-calorie beverages in place of fruit juice, soda, beer, wine and other beverages that provide extra calories. Depending on your habits, this change alone can cut a few hundred calories a day. Have a glass or two of water 20 minutes before meals to fill up and eat less.
A lot of people are in “fat denial,” says Irene Rubaum Keller, R.D. author of Foodaholic: The Seven Stages to Permanent Weight Loss. “They don’t get on scale, they buy stretchy clothes, they hide in the back of pictures—things that stop them from owning up to their weight.” Getting on the scale can stop the denial. “It may not help you lose weight, but may really stop you from gaining weight,” she says.
I had the same problem when I started paleo but I did notice how my clothes were fitting and by comments from others about how much weight I’ve lost, so maybe don’t focus on the numbers on the scale go by measurements and clothes.
The body perceives a sudden and drastic reduction in calorie intake as starvation and adjusts its metabolism accordingly. When humans used to hunt and gather food rather than buy it at a grocery store, a drastic cut in calories meant we would not eat for a while. Slowing down metabolic processes is the body’s way of protecting itself against long periods with little or no food. This energy saving feature is known as starvation mode.
Cabbage is a great source of fiber, and that’s great news for you if you like the stuff and want to shed some pounds. A recent study found that people who added more of it to their diets — without changing anything else — lost almost as much weight as people who followed the heart-healthy, low-fat eating plan recommended by the American Heart Association. But that’s not all. Cabbage is an amazing diuretic, which means it helps you shift belly bloat from water retention. For more ab-carving foods, check out these 25 Best Foods for a Toned Body!
You can either purchase a journal or download a food journal app. Try to track as many days as you can. Again, you’re more likely to stay on track and stick with your meal plan the more often you record your foods.
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!
Diet diary: I was naughty in New York so as punishment I’ve decided to start from the beginning of the diet. Let the fasting begin again! So I had a day of eating nothing but a handful of veggies. Whilst it was nothing like the withdrawal that experienced when I first started the plan, it was still tough. But I knew I had to do it in order to get rid of that horrible sugar addiction.
Love the slow carb and it has changed my life. Thanks so much. What do you recommend if you are Bikram Yoga addict and you are on the slow carb? Bikram is pretty intense. Is there anything special I need to be doing on the diet to still lost fat? I don’t want to overtrain.
I could recommend several hard-core thermogenics like ephedrine hydrochloride, but the trade-off in liver and kidney damage (not to mention things that few people realize, like sinuses) isn’t worth it.

Jacob Lund/ShutterstockForget opposites attract. Researchers have long noted that people tend to gravitate toward those who are the most like them. We prefer people who share our political and religious views, who are of a similar heritage or geographic location and, it turns out, who have similar weights as we do. But if you’re overweight and trying to drop a few pounds this could work against you, according to a study published in Obesity. Researchers found that dieters lost more weight when they hung out with thinner friends, possibly because of social pressure and because they followed their friends’ examples. This doesn’t mean you should only hang out with people skinnier than you; just make sure your friend group includes plenty of people who are different than you and can challenge you to improve—in all areas of your life. (And don’t forget to be a good friend; do these 24 things to be a true friend.)
Have you ever supplemented with protein shakes n also become a part of a challenge community to keep you motivated and accountable? I have found these two things to drive me to get in good shape. :)) I think everyone knows that the more we can keep our insulin levels down, the less sugars we store, less fat stored. Have that one day or couple melas that we splurge a bit: just do it before 7pm.
i am on day 12 of the paleo diet. no results at all yet!! i have cut out all of the items i am supposed to cut out. i haven’t even cheated. i’m 60 years old. slim build but i need to lose about 5 pounds. i have been walking several miles each week and going to the gym once or twice a week so far. my body hasn’t shrunk at all yet! i am giving it two weeks. i hope to see results. i did have some higher glycemic fruits so i will cut those out and sweet potatoes. will stick to berries.
Stress is both psychological and biological. Overeating causes biological stress through inflammation due to the excess production of free radicals and what are known as reactive oxygen species that cause cell damage and an inflammatory response. The second reason for elevated inflammation is Advanced Glycation End products (AGE’s) these are the result of uncontrolled reactions between sugars and fats (sugars and amino acids as well but to a lesser degree). Fructose is 7 to 10 times more likely to cause these reactions than glucose, and polyunsaturated fats (much less stable fats) are much more likely to be subjected to these reactions than saturated fats.
I have around 10-12% bodyfat right now, and I am in the process of resistance training in order to gain more muscle mass. Will this diet help me gain muscle AND lose bodyfat? I look forward to your expose on your experience.
Sorry, but somebody had to say it. Even when following the Paleo diet, calories still count. The caveat, however, is that Paleo calories generally count less because they primarily come from whole, unprocessed foods. The reason for this is that whole foods require more energy to digest than their processed counterparts. Take, for example, a stalk of celery. By the time you chew, swallow, digest and absorb it, you’ve actually expended more calories than the celery contains, meaning that it’s actually providing negative calories! By comparison, a Twinkie requires almost no energy to chew, digest or absorb, but if you were going strictly by the listed caloric content, you would think that a calorie from a Twinkie is the same as a calorie from celery. In other words, a calorie is not a calorie. What Paleo folks have to keep an eye out for are the Paleo “loopholes,” Paleo foods that are technically allowed, but are still calorie dense and easy to eat. To be sure, Paleo treat foods made with sugar from dates, honey and maple syrup, and fat from coconut oil or other nuts are certainly better options than Twinkies and Ding Dongs, but they are still treats. Save them for special occasions to avoid overloading on healthy but excessive calories.
The big difference between way back then and now is the easy availability of meat, fish, vegetables, fruits and nuts. Cavemen and -women didn’t know when the next wounded kudu would cross their path, or where they’d find the next patch of wild yams. We simply don’t have that problem: All of our — including items considered paleo-compliant — can be conveniently found at the supermarket.
I am also going into my 3rd week of the Paleo Reset and I have not lost 1lb. Super disappointed because I’ve followed it strictly. I feel good though.. I am 5’4 & weigh 125 and only only want to lose 5-10lbs but not losing anything any advice would be great!
