I have been eating a primal diet for the past 6 months and haven't lost a pound. I was not overly overweight before, but I was hoping this would allow me to slim down a teensie bit more and look a little better (although I know that shouldn't be what it's about). I feel phenomenal after giving up grains and I have tons of energy but it bothers me that I am not losing the fat. I retain muscle well now and feel strong and happy. I feel like I must be doing something wrong, but I have no idea what.
I eat lots of grass-fed meat, organic veggies (mostly green & leafy), little fruit, nuts, cream in my coffee (every other day at most), some cheese, absolutely no processed foods other than the occasional piece of 90% dark chocolate. I supplement with Vitamin D and Fish oil daily.
I eat a meal when I feel hungry...pretty much lost all concept of breakfast, lunch and dinner. I probably average two meals/day. I do IF once or twice/week skipping a meal or two. Sometimes I sprint fasted. I am quite active...walk everywhere, never less that an hour/day (usually more), do resistance training once every few days and sprint once/week.
It is just so frustrating seeing and hearing about everyone's success and not seeing any results for myself. I totally believe this is the healthiest way to live, just wondering why it isn't working for me. Any helpful tips would be appreciated! Thanks.
