@thhq "beat" me to the part of the answer. :)imo, at your age, with your level of exercise and what you're eating, you're probably already at your 'easy 'equilibrium' size, shape & weight. That's pretty much as far as paleo will take you.. your... (more)

On days when you are not really hungry but know you should have something. What should you focus on for the calories you will be getting? protein, fat, carbs? Also lets call is a mild walking day, no stressful workouts.

If you aren't really hungry, just don't eat, or have a piece of fruit and a few nuts and just eat another time. The only time I force myself to eat when I'm not really hungry is if I know I'll be doing major exercise the next day and need to... (more)

1000 calories a day sounds really low. Perhaps your body has gone into ketosis and is now holding onto fat? Try not counting calories, or if you do, increase your calories per day. You're probably not eating enough to fuel your body and it is... (more)

So you dropped 7 pounds in five weeks. How is that hitting a wall? That's a good and sustainable rate of weight loss. The first week was water weight and now you're body's catching up to that. Weight loss rarely follows an entirely straight line.... (more)

Maybe your weight gain is a vestige of the amaretto pound cake? Whenever my husband eats wheat, such as a sandwich, he gains 5-6 pounds! It then takes him over a week to lose the wheat weight if he gets back on a strict LC Paleo diet. He also... (more)

Not really an answer, just wanted to add that if you check out mortality charts on D3, there is a rather big difference between 6 and 24.

Honestly, simply eating paleo is not great for weight loss. The key point of the diet is to restore your body's natural eating regulation, which is great for weight maintenance when you are at your normal body weight. The bottom line is, when you... (more)

This is what so called "health and fitness experts" have been touting at the public for decades. Sounds like conventional wisdom to me. Is it a scientific fact? I personally think that dinner is the most important meal of the day.
