I have been eating Paleo for about a month. I'm 26, 5'2, and 162lbs. Initially, I lost 10 lbs in the first 2 weeks, but have put back about 3 lbs and haven't been able to lose anything since. I'm very apple shaped, and I have PCOS. I haven't lost a single inch on my waist. I've lost a few inches from my thighs, calves and hips (which I don't want, I"m actually trying to add muscles to these areas to balance out my upper half). For exercise, I try to walk every day for 30-40 minutes (I have a sedentary desk job so that is my only exercise). I also lift very heavy weights for my lower body 2x a week, and do lighter weights for toning my upper half 2x a week. I do yoga 1-3x a week. I also throw in a sprint randomly here and there. I've tried tracking my nutrients, and I usually eat about 50-60% fat, about 100g of protein a day, and I try not to eat fruit. I do eat some dairy, 1/2 cup of kefir a day and occasionally drink some whole, organic milk or cheese. On the days I work out my lower half, I usually drink a whey protein shake after my workout, and I usually eat more carbs these days (a sweet potato, or a small corn tortilla for dinner) Does anyone have any suggestions for me on how to lose midsection fat and add muscles to my lower body? Am I eating too much dairy? Cut out the protein shakes til I lose weight? Try to lose weight before I try adding muscle? Any suggestions are appreciated.
