My wife suffers from pretty severe motion sickness. I'm wondering if any of you have dealt with this problem, whether a paleo diet helped with this problem or whether a specific dietary change or other change helped.

The best thing you can do, in my opinion, is wait. 1.5 months is not that long and given you lost 15 pounds in 3 weeks, this means you have stalled for about 3 weeks now. I would say 15 pounds gone after 1.5 months is a very good result. Paleo is... (more)
