This might be pure speculation, but I'm curious as to what you all think. I'm a woman, 21 years old, and I've always been slim, my BMI has never been higher than 19. But I always had a larger proportion of fat around my midsection, especially my... (more)
I'm hoping someone can give me some input... A little background on me: I'm semi-recovering anorexic/bulimic (that hurts to say out loud). Before starting Paleo I had lost about 25-30lbs, admittedly not in the healthiest way, and then stumbled... (more)

So I've got a bit of an issue here.... I've been following a paleo diet for the past 4 months and prior to that I would consider myself a fairly "clean" eater to begin with. I recently decided to add dairy (occasionally adding milk and geek... (more)
Hi-- I've been trying the paleo lifestyle for a few months now, and have felt pretty good about it all. I don't miss bread or grains nearly as much as i thought i would and when I do have something (like the peanut butter cookie i ate today :/) I... (more)
Hello everyone, I've been paleo for about 8 months now (I don't do any dairy except butter, no sugar at all, no fruit, no nuts among other things b/c I've struggled with Candida for a while) and in the last month I put on almost 7-8 lbs, I feel... (more)
Ok so it's ravenous girl again, little over a month paleo, pretty consistent diet in paleo fashion, after last posted question appetite not quite as bad, only had one un-paleo day. I stepped on a scale recently and I know weight is just A number... (more)
You might want to step away from the scale and pick up the measuring tape. Keep a weekly log of your waist/hip/thigh/bicep/wrist/etc. measurements. It may also be hopeful to keep a picture log. At the end of the day weight is weight but it doesn't... (more)

I'm on a paleo/primal diet going on 7 months and I feel good but have lost too much weight and look and feel too skinny. You can see it in my face...I'm a lean, somewhat muscular 6'1" 158 pound male and have lost over 10 pounds since starting... (more)
Hi everyone.. I am getting a bit discouraged here since I feel like I am doing everything right and I am still struggling to lose weight. I know these lasy 10 pounds are the hardest to lose but I am wondering if something else is to blame... (more)
You had some cheat meals and gained some weight back it's that simple. Maybe it seems like more because it was sugar and turned to glycogen making you retain water. Just keep going and don't give up, don't let it bother you.
Stats: female 19 5'0" BW = 98lbs Background - I've been involved with crossfit/heavy lifting for about a year now and am happy with my results but I'd like to put on some mass and increase my lifts. I have IBS so I'm not sure if that is why I'm... (more)
