Hello everybody! I have been on Paleo (very strict minus the odd drink a couple of times) for about a month. I lost ten pounds the first two weeks and am feeling great! I am just wondering why I can feel my body change and alter (stomach flatter,... (more)

Don't worry about the scale... if you're on Paleo to feel better, the inches and pounds will drop more slowly. If you already feel comfortable on the food program, you can add sports/training/physical activity etc. Also be careful about fruit... (more)

Hi my name is Kelly and I am 48 and have always been in great shape. I never had to even get on a scale because my metabolism was so fast. When I felt my pants getting tight I would simply work harder (running, elliptical, weights) cut calories... (more)

Hi @Kelly 35 . Most people find that they have to adjust their diet as they age in order to keep the weight down. A Paleo diet has to be done for more than weight loss. The rational behind this diet is better health, which those of us over 50... (more)

For a long time I would weight myself once a week on Sunday mornings just to see where I was at. After a while I realized that I had gotten to a point where I was making a bigger deal out of the number than it really was. I had lost 130 pounds... (more)

So I was pretty shocked today when my scale arrived. I've been struggling with the last 5-10 pounds. I started Paleo at 145, dropped very quickly to 130, then settled back up to 135. The weight gain was distressing but I tried not to allow myself... (more)

My scale, this morning, said I had gained 0.5 pounds and lost 2% body fat, since yesterday. I trust the weight measurement. I ignore the body fat numbers entirely.

How are you guys able to measure how many grams of protein you are eating? I don't have a scale..Also, I have heard you must eat 1 gram per desirable weight. I want to be 130lbs, so 130 grams? Is this right?

Step 1 Obtain your daily caloric intake. Your weight loss plan may provide the specific number of calories you should consume each day. Assume that your caloric intake should be 2,000 calories a day. This is a typical caloric intake for a... (more)

You could give yourself goals. Figure your lean body mass, go to an online daily calorie requirements calculator for a rough idea, figure how many grams of protein/carb/fat foods give you that, set your goals and eat. if that doesnt put weight... (more)

I'm trying to be realistic and rational about this whole paleo thing, which means I have to give up on the idea of eating grass-fed meat at every meal. I've started grabbing a rotisserie chicken once or twice a week when I'm short on time. I... (more)

I read on Archevore that when faced with what he lovingly calls "factory meat" that Dr. Harris makes sure to pop some omega 3's or a couple of spoons of cod liver oil to offset the dose of omega 6 and calls it a day. As you said, it's not a... (more)

Conventional wisdom says that long-term weight loss success stories by and large weigh themselves every day so that the slightest gain can be detected and reversed quickly. Do those living the paleo lifestyle still weigh with similar frequency to... (more)

I weigh myself every time I lift. Usually three times per week. I like knowing, yes. I'm trying to gain weight and muscle so. If you're trying to lose I think a mirror and camera are far better than a scale.
