I know I have kind of asked this question before, but I don't understand why some people suggest no fruit if wanting to lose weight. I have heard that losing a few lbs has to do with lowering insulin levels, but if you are in a healthy paleo... (more)

In my opinion it's a function of how much you need to lose and how your appetite responds to fruit. As long as I avoid binge eating, I lose weight steadily even though I eat 1-2 pieces of whole fruit daily. And it doesn't trip the binge trigger... (more)

Your activity level requires much more energy than someone sitting at a desk all day long. I think you are not eating enough fat and carbs. Try more bacon, more fruit, liberal amounts of olive oil in your vegetables, a sweet potato or two in your... (more)

For exercise, I wouldn't worry about that right now. For most very obese people, the initial weight loss from low carb is fairly rapid. In addition, exercise can stress already overburdened joints. That said, rowing seems fairly safe as well as... (more)

If you're eating VLC for fat-loss, I'm not sure loss of appetite is a problem unless you're already at your goal-weight. Ketosis can cause nausea until you get used to it, and it can take more than three weeks to become fully adapted. Eating in... (more)

I'm not an expert, but perhaps you're eating a bit too much protein? I'd make sure most of your plate is filled with veggies and just one serving (palm size) of protein.

You might be losing fat but gaining muscle, which is heavy. Nevertheless, if you want quicker results, ditch the dried apricots, fruits (other than berries), and nuts for a couple of weeks to see if that helps. Fruits and nuts make me gain weight.... (more)
