I am a 26 year old female, 157cm tall + weigh 147 pounds (68kg). I have been Paleo for 10 weeks now with the primary goal being fat loss. I have eliminated all sugar, grains and dairy.
My daily diet usually looks like this:
MEAL 1 - 150g Kangaroo Meat + 1/4 avocado OR handful nuts
MEAL 2 - 3 egg fritata + avocado/spinach OR handful nuts
MEAL 3 - 150g turkey mince + green veges
MEAL 4 - 100g turkey mince or 100g salmon
MEAL 5 - 100g of seafood (prawns,fish,salmon etc) + mixed veges (cooked in tbl coconut oil)
I also have a 'cheat meal' once a week - usually buckwheat pancakes w/ maple syrup and cream.
Basically since I started this diet I have lost maybe 2.2 pounds only so not really much at all considering that I follow the diet pretty strictly. I have also not had my periods for over 2 months and I am ususally very regular. I am also starting to notice tiny little bumps on my upper arms.
Just wondering if anyone has any idea what is going on. Are my hormones totally out of whack? Is it the leptin? Has anybody else experienced this?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!!!!
