Answered on August 19, 2014

Hello - new to the diet and I am trying to shred about 20 lbs. I have been working out so much that I relized that I wont ever lose weight if I dont change my eating habits. I take a fat burner, oxyeleite pro, and was wondering if thats still okay to take doing the paleo diet? any tips would be great. another note - i am not a huge meat eater, I stick to basics like grilled chicken, and plain fish - is that okay or do I have to eat red meat? Honestly, red meat grosses me out. I am cutting all my sugar/nuts/dairy out too in hopes that also helps. Any tips or feedback please let me know

You're either SWAT or you're not.

The key weight loss ingredient is DMMA (dimethylamylamine) from - apparently - geranium stem. At present FDA has banned DMMA in these type of supplements so if the geranium stem actually contains DMMA then, technically, this supplement is being distributed illegally. It's more likely that geranium stem has very little active DMMA and the company is using its controversial status to promote its product.

In any case DMMA is obviously non-paleo.

"Is oxyeleite pro Paleo?" Well I don't know much about it, be it seems to be a secret mix of dodgy chemicals, so I'm guessing the answer is probably "no". If that's the worst thing in your diet, and you think it works for you, then you'll be just another one of hundreds of Paleoers that scoff down dodgy supplements, so I wouldn't worry too much...

I think that you need more fat in your diet, which seems to be mainly protein and not a whole lot else. Rather than trying to lose 20lbs in one go, I'd try and choose a diet that is sustainable for the long term, and that will let you gradually shed the pounds (which will hopefully be more likely to stay off).

The other great thing about losing the weight slowly as you can enjoy the "wow, you're looking slimmer" comments for a few months rather than the "you've lost a lot of weight, do you have AIDS?" comments.

Well if it's not helping you burn fat now, why keep taking it? Try eating real food first, and if that doesn't work maybe give it a try. I'm against all kinds of supplements and weird stuff like that, it's not food, so why eat it? I may be a bit more of a hard ass on that than other people, but I buy into the theory that only eating real food is better than eating stuff that isn't food. People are always quick to look for the next pill/supplement/think they can eat that will solve all of their problems, but are usually unwilling to look at what they need to cut out of their diet (not saying this is you, but in general).

Do a sensible workout regiment. Eat a reasonable paleo-inspired diet. Get lots of sleep. That will fix 95% of everything.

What you want is to be a Fat Burning Beast. You really need to get in touch with your inner fat burner and become a BEAST.

There is no other way to explain it. Either you are a Fat Burning Beast, or you are not a Fat Burning Beast, it is your choice.

But if you decide not to become a Fat Burning Beast, all I have to say to you is that you had the opportunity to become a FAT BURNING BEAST and you decided to let it pass you by.

Because being a FAT BURNING BEAST is the alpha and the omega, it's what life is all about.

Fish and chicken are great, but red meat is AWESOME! Make sure and keep an open mind, your taste WILL change eating this way. My wife wasn't particularly fond of red meat either, but now she LOVES to eat it rare.

I agree with the other post that you do need more healthy fats in your diet to complement the protein. As to other dietary recommendations, you mentioned you wanted to shed 20 lbs. I would advise you to put the scale away and not focus on the amount of weight, but how you look, how you feel, how your clothes fit (or don't anymore). Measure you waist, you don't want to lose weight and be "skinny fat" do you? What if you lost 20 pounds of fat and gained 10 pounds of muscle? Would you consider that a failure?

You didn't mention any exercise in your post, what are your goals there?

As to the fat burner, many people take them for the wrong reason and just end up with expensive pee. If you wish to use, use it a supplement to exercise you are already doing. Even if it is a placebo effect, it's still an effect.
