sounds like you are eating very few carbs. The "stubborn belly" could be from a ton of things -- one of which is too much cortisol build-up. You may want to consider implementing more rest days to help your body heal.

First off. Insanity is NOT a lot of cario. Each workout lats between 40-50 minutes, about 10 of which are stretching. There is nothing wrong with normal cardio. Your female paleo ancestors did abotu 5 miles a day on average, more for men. ... (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)

I'm a woman and lost 25 lbs of normal weight, plus another 25/30 of baby weight, doing paleo/primal in my late 30s. I can't comment on ratios, because I've never tracked. But, I can say that women, too, can lose weight eating this way.
