The best diet is run ten miles a day and eat as much as you wish.

My wife and I will be going on vacation next month and wanted to look slimmer. We researched, and decided we'd like to try Paleo for 30 days. We're about 9 days in and still in the "detox" phase. I seem to be taking longer to clean my body out... (more)

It's not just ketosis, but also sugar & salt withdrawal combined with fluid re-regulation. Make sure you are drinking enough water and getting adequate minerals in your diet.

I highly suggest buying a scale... I bought one pretty cheap at Target... it makes measuring a whole lot easier, and over time you'll get good at eyeballing how many grams are in a serving.

You are doing the right thing. People that are more metabolically broken are more likely to suffer before getting used to paleo. Just eat lots of real, whole foods and get some quality exercise and you will be fine.

I cannot believe one can eat too much pumpkin. There are paleo populations who eat 60% calories in sweet potatoes, nutritionally very similar to pumpkin, and they have no diseases of civilization. I think you are doing very well.

8 or more alcoholic drinks a week will hamper your weight loss. Trust me I live in Beervana and I had a heck of time cutting beer out. Once I did I feel better and the weight loss is about 3 lbs a week.
