Long-term fat loss is hard.Really hard.Espeically when the fat loss you're working to lose wasn't there a year ago.It's easy to get caught up in frustration and negative thoughts, which is so unfortunate. Staying positive is so important and is... (more)

I'm 3 years in, fat loss has slowed to a trickle. But I set in place multiple support systems to keep me motivated:1. Visiting forums and reading blogs like this to learn new things, get support when needed, and to help others--daily. 2. Listening... (more)

Been doing the Paleo thang for a couple months now. I'm pretty much 98% paleo, minus the occasional frustration 'cheat' and the fact that I haven't found anything to replace my Crystal Light. If I try anything else I just don't drink water. I... (more)

@paleot I'm confused as to why a sleeve would prevent someone from jogging. Jogging is what got me from 200 to 160 in the first place and after recovering from surgery I continued doing it until my energy crashed. It got to the point that I was... (more)

So I have been paleo around 5 months. For the first month or so I was moderate carb just getting used to things, then I went low carb and am now pretty low carb. (percentages are around 50-65% fat, 20-35% protein and 15% carbs) I was walking a... (more)

I have been trying to lose a bit of weight for awhile now (around 10 lbs). I've been paleo for over a year and have lost about 10 pounds (though, really hard to tell since my weight fluctuates so much). I started paleo at 152 and I am now at 139.... (more)

Juicing the low-sugar veggies like celery parsley and greens, less of the sweet things like carrots, might be a good place to start. Have 1 or more of 'liquid only' days per week, include broth, teas, and then reintroduce solids with a clean... (more)

Welcome! Patience is needed here. Your body will require some time to heal. It took me about 6 months to turn things around and I had a really good diet (plus gluten) pre-Primal. Agree with other posters. Stop counting calories & focus on... (more)

Hi Michelle, The first thing you have to do is eliminate hunger. I'm guessing you're probably too low carb and need to add some starches, and the other factor that's likely to contribute to hunger is micronutrient deficiencies. It's good to... (more)

Cheese (especially a soft cheese like cream cheese), peanut butter and Atkins bars are classic problem foods for many. The peanut butter and the bars are not paleo. I would lose all of those immediately and figure out some better options for... (more)

You said it yourself...'stuck after ONLY three weeks'. A 10lb weight loss in that time is fantastic. Day to day and week to week your body weight fluctuates, it is not static. Your body is constantly storing and burning fat. If you had been eating... (more)

What I am talking about is a growing fatigue with trying to "nail down" paleo on a daily basis, and feeling the ground shifting under me. I know the predictable response: "The basics are easy...just avoid grains and sugars...etc." But is it so... (more)

I would stop reading, Brad. You need to figure this out yourself with your body. Every body is slightly different, what works for one never works for all. Come up with a couple of different protocols. Do it ahead of time, not reactionary. ... (more)

First off, grazing or meals, that's individual. Second: eating fat won't get you into ketosis. Limiting dietary glucose and fructose gets you into ketosis. In fact, if you don't limit dietary fat then you're in a calories in calories out... (more)

You need to have a little patience. Just remember that lactose is a sugar and wheat products, corn products, sugar in any form...be it table sugar, fruit, sodas..even diet, all will sabotage your effort to lose weight. Any word ending in "ose"... (more)

Two things spring to my mind: Could be the stevia. Some people report diarrhea when they use that. Perhaps worthwhile eliminating that for a few weeks and seeing if it makes any difference. Do you eat many nuts? Personally, when I eat a lot... (more)
