Hi! First post :P
I've been doing paleo nearly 3 months now, and am having trouble seeing significant weight-loss. I'll give you lot all the info I can think of to help sort this out for me, but it's been boggling (and frustrating) me.
My diet: Fresh or canned wild fish, grass-fed beef and lamb (including offal), seaweed, coconut oil, coconut flour, salad greens, mushrooms, brazil and mac nuts. Macronutrient ratio(FPC): 70/20/10. I'm 5'5, 102kg, so like 100 pounds overweight. I've been consistently eating this way for 27 days, and have stayed in the 1200-1300 calorie range with carbs under 20g and protein between 50-60g. I'm taking bovine thyroid and occasionally Vit E. I do about 30 minutes to an hour of sprinting intervals (speed 2, 10), and an hour of yoga everyday, as well as two hour-long martial arts classes per week.
To date I've lost 6 kilos (13ish pounds). In the first month I tried raising carbs (to about 60-70g, with berries, veg, and tubers), and calories (to about 1600-1800, mostly added fat), and then both. I gained weight slowly when I raised carbs, quickly when I raised calories, and piled it on when I raised both. But would, regardless, gain weight - not lose.
The 1200 calorie range is pretty much the only point at which I'll lose rather than maintain, and even then I lose slowly (compared to others who are dieting and a similar weight) while being hungry much of the time.
So what the hell am I doing wrong? I feel like I'm following most of the advice straight on but still don't see a significant and consistent reduction in weight.
That said I do feel other aspects of my health have improved from paleo, specifically digestive issues and energy levels... But I'll admit to my primary interest in paleo is the weight-loss factor, especially since I have so much to lose.
