Can't lose weight!

Answered on July 26, 2015
Created February 11, 2013 at 2:37 AM

Hi all,

Could use some advice. I've been following a modified Paleo diet since September. I eat legumes (lentils, black beans, red lentils) but no fruit. I am a 5'3.5, 17 year old female. I began eating this way at 140 lbs. I lost 5 lbs quickly without exercise, but then stalled. I was eating a TON (3 eggs + beans and veggies, 0.5 lb turkey, 0.75 lb meat + beans and veggies) so I reduced my portions. Lost about 2 lbs. Stalled again. Began going to the gym and doing cardio and weights. No scale change, but my arms became more defined. Cut portions in half and got down to 130 lbs. Stalled yet again. Kept going to gym, ate some almond butter (but never more than a few tablespoons worth). Couldn't figure out what was going on, so I ditched the almond butter and cut my portions drastically for 6 days- 1 egg w/ veggies and a spoonful of lentils, no lunch, 0.25 lb meat + veggies and a spoonful of lentils. Got to 129 lbs, returned to 130 when I began eating lunch again. Ugh. Still kept working out. Had bloodwork done, everything is normal.

As of now, my current routine is:

Food- Breakfast: 2 eggs, 1 cup broccoli Lunch: 4 oz grilled chicken, 1 cup brussels sprouts Dinner: 0.5 lb meat (chicken, filet mignon, salmon, etc.), 1.5 cups assorted veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, cabbage) Drinking 3 L of water/day. I went bean-free when I read more about the Paleo diet (have been following Tim Ferris' 4 Hour Body book). I have had tofu noodles once or twice a week, more lately since it seems useless not to when I don't lose weight anyways. Food is cooked in a bit of grapeseed oil. I take a cheat day about once a week- usually includes cottage cheese, a protein bar, avocado, cheese, sushi with brown rice, dark chocolate. Current measurements are ~130 lbs (I fluctuate a TON!), 35-28-37, 5'3.5

Gym- Running 3.5 miles in 30 minutes 3-5 days/week, alternating weight lifting for all body parts, do 60 minute spin class once a week, do Yin Yoga once a week

My gym performance has improved a ton, but my number on the scale isn't budging. I recognize I may have built some muscle, but I really need to lose another 10 lbs. I suppose you'll just have to take my word that I'm not a crazy teenage girl with an improper view of myself. I get 8 hours, if not more, of sleep each night. I don't have any sweeteners (unsweetened tea is a favorite, but I do chew sugar-free gum, which I plan to cut). I took about 2 weeks off the diet and didn't gain. I ate decently but had cheese, milk, whole grains and a bit of chocolate and ice cream. Hoped it would reset my metabolism but no luck. Thinking of beginning a true Paleo diet without legumes but with fruit and nuts starting April.

I feel that especially at my age and doing so much exercise, I shouldn't have to be so restrictive to lose weight. Running out of ideas of things to try. Any advice welcome. What helped you lose the final 10 lbs?

"usually includes cottage cheese, a protein bar, avocado, cheese, sushi with brown rice, dark chocolate" That is not a cheat day! I second any call to chill out about what sounds like a healthy weight. But if you really want to keep getting leaner, add in some healthy carbs after your workout.

Sun: In short, sun exposure good! I use a bed with a specific configuration to expose for longer term at less intensity. Complete details pending in an audio on sun, light and tanning. Waiting for the hosting provider to active an online web account for the last 24 hours. // I caution unless you spend a week getting the body up-to-speed by moderate exposure, you are likely to burn, going from a no-tan environment to full-on PR beaches.

That's kind of where I am too. At peace, but still tweaking here and there. Lately I've been reading a lot about endomorphs, and looking at pictures of healthy endomorphs, and I realize I am not that far from it. I'm just going to have to live with the thighs. I remember my mom telling me that when she was going through a divorce, she weighed 99 lb, and STILL had thighs! lol.

Thank you. While I'm still determined to try some other methods of shedding these last few pounds, your comment has convinced me I can happily live with (and maintain!) this weight. It truly would be a shame to waste my time miserable with this body because it really isn't so bad, it just isn't ideal (yet!). Besides, even if I give up the weight loss quest, I still plan to eat this way, so what's the difference? Thanks for the insight.. the links are great, too!

Going to give this a shot. Unfortunately family vacation is in a week and I don't expect to be super strict there, but I'm going to make all of April completely Paleo (no cheat days) with unrestricted portions and the usual exercise. Looking forward to reincorporating avocados, fruits, nuts and homemade almond milk into my diet.. Really missed those things. Can't wait for satiating portions, either. Ditching the scale and using a tape measure instead. Thanks a bunch.

Contrast dye used in CAT scans produces this: http://blog.remakehealth.com/blog_Healthcare_Consumers-0/bid/10276/What-are-the-side-effects-of-CT-scan-and-MRI-scan-dye was the first link I found. I don't want anybody injecting anything into my veins, and the injected dye is not pure iodine with water: Lugol's is _only_ iodine (I2), potassium iodide (KI) and water in an 5/10/85 ratio. Furthermore, iodine is taken via the GI tract in lower doses over time, giving the kidneys opportunity to filter out the poisons and the endocrine system time to adjust.

Not very familiar with iodine and sunlight effects.. I'm headed on a family vacation to Puerto Rico for a week where we plan to be at the beach every day. Does this mean increased sun exposure could help me out? Will it "shock" my system and have a lasting effect, or will the effect wear off as soon as I come home and stop spending time in the sun? Thanks for the advice, very interesting idea

Can't disagree with you about the motives. I hadn't heard of Paleo until this week, but after reading of the Paleo lifestyle, I realized it strongly paralleled the way I've been eating. It's been incredible to read of the health benefits of living this way and how detrimental grains are to the human body, and I'm working on remembering that slimmer thighs aren't my only goal. May need to revise my gym schedule, as well.

Definitely strongly considering tweaking my fat:protein:carb ratio. My desire to lose the 10 lbs is aesthetic- but I do strongly believe I would be able to run faster and do more push ups if I weighed less. Skinny isn't my goal, but low fat is- with the amount of muscle on my legs, I will never be skinny or waif-like. Thank you for the insight!

Good point. Planning to have my body fat % tested soon. Haven't really noticed much physical change in the last few months other than more arm definition, but perhaps I'm unable to notice change on myself since it's so slow. Also, anyone find cardio ineffective for fat loss? My dad (a Paleo) believes it increases appetite and leads to overeating

Exercising too much? Maybe, maybe not. I'm leaning toward not. I do however think you are NOT EATING ENOUGH to support weight loss at your activity level. This "calories in = calories out" concept is seriously flawed and outdated, and the more you reduce your caloric intake the harder it's going to be for your body to let go of it's precious energy stores.

Solution? As weird as it sounds, EAT MORE of the right calories. You need at least a modest amount of carbohydrates, especially before and after a workout. These can come from yams, fruits, dried fruits, a bit of honey - even beans if they were working for you (not every one is on the "toxic beans" bandwagon). I hope the meats you choose to eat include their natural fats, and you should add to this with organic butter, tree nuts, avocado, coconut oil, olive oil, etc. Basically I'd like to see you increase fat calories foremost, and carbohydrates modestly (work up from there until you feel good with it).

Do all of the above without counting calories, without measuring portions (only do so to document what you eat, not to ration the amount you eat), and without that pesky scale. Eat until you feel satisfied. Some days you will eat an ungodly amount, others you may have little appetite. LISTEN to what your body is telling you with these signs, and act accordingly. You'll do way better athletically with a sound, nutritionally balanced body that can regulate itself, than you will by simply paring down weight off your frame.

Pay as much attention to rest as you do to your activity. One tenet of the 4 Hour Body you should be familiar with is that an extra day of rest can do more for you than squeezing in another workout, or burning just a few hundred more calories. Play hard, rest harder.

Don't eat this way for a week and then become discouraged by not losing weight and/or inches. Give your metabolism time to adjust back to eating adequately, it will right itself eventually.

Most importantly - BELIEVE you can do this, and cheers for being concerned with your health and nutrition at your age. You are w-a-ay beyond most your age. Rock on!

Sydney, I just posted a long answer to this same question on another thread. You can read it here:

http://paleohacks.com/questions/178175/weight-loss-plateau/178193#178193

Truly, I believe 2 things about this.

(1) Our culture is really screwed up confounding "skinny" with healthy. Go look at artwork from centuries past. Here is one example: a Rembrandt painting of Bathsheba:

http://fineartamerica.com/featured/rembrandt-bathsheba-1654-granger.html

You are eating healthy. So unless you are a natural ectomorph, you will not be skinny. I say this as someone who has struggled with this my whole life. Talking about it is one way to keep convincing myself! Biologically, your body is preparing to have babies (sorry, even if that's not what your mind is doing!). So in a way, you are fighting nature.

(2) In a similar vein, I think our bodies (and by "our" I mean "women") are always stashing away a little fat as a buffer against the possible famine to come. We are the ones who have to carry on the species. So since we never have that famine, that buffer of fat stays. Of course we could have the famine and get skinny, and that's called an eating disorder (been there done that).

I would bet you look amazing. If you need to prove to yourself that you are progressing, put the scale in a box in the top of your closet, and start measuring yourself once a month. Hips, thighs, arms, etc. Focus on being strong, on playing, on enjoying life. I am 20 years older than you, and I would give anything to have back the last 20 years I have spent obsessing about my body. When I look at pictures of me at 17, I was a goddess! lol. Love yourself. Here is a great article that might resonate with you:

http://chriskresser.com/reflections-on-the-9-steps-the-biggest-obstacle-to-perfect-health

Sorry for all the links! Best of luck to you. :)

I actually think you are exercising way too much. Especially cardio. You know, resting is just as important, and your body will not lose weight if you stress it out all the time. Read here for some good info. http://suppversity.blogspot.ca/2013/02/chronic-resistance-training-reduces.html

I agree that you need to stop obsessing about weight. Don't use the BMI to figure out what a good weight is, rather, google how to figure out your body fat percentage. Even then, that is merely a guide, and shouldn't be used strigently. If you gain/grow muscle, you will weigh more but look smaller.

Finally, weight should NOT be the main focus of eating this way. I would be lying if I said it had no bearing on following a Paleo way for me, but even when I stall, it's still worth it. Re-examine your motives.

I'd drop the soy and the cardio unless its in a HIIT variety. Then I'd lift more, eat more fat and carb back load (starchy vegetables up to 100g) after lifting at night. I'd avoid carbs on rest days and I'd drop breakfast all together as it short circuits fat burning hormones. Nuts and fruit don't work for me, period.

Eat some beef for real and really, drop the cardio. Try kettlebell swings or just lift more. Cardio provides diminishing returns.

How I lost 33 pounds without exercise gradually in 10 months:

-Stop consuming all significant sources of polyunsaturated fats, they slow down thyroid function and therefore metabolism. Use coconut oil or butter for frying.

-For each vegetable you're eating raw, make sure it doesn't slow down thyroid function, like raw cabbage does.

-Avoid every soy product. They slow down thyroid function.

-Have at least 80 grams of high quality protein per day, which helps your metabolism by helping the liver convert T4 to T3. High quality protein includes milk, cheese, eggs, potatoes, meat cuts high in gelatin, gelatin.

-Do light therapy with orange and red frequencies. The way I do it is using an incandescent bulb as my light source. They have these frequencies. Do the amount you're comfortable with up to 750 watts of incandescent light. The sun has these frequencies too, but one isn't outside all day. The sun however has the stressful blue frequency which the incandescent has very little.

Maybe try some higher fat protien and reduce overall protien consumption? Also, maybe up the carbs since you are working out so much. Why do you need to loose another 10 pounds? Is your goal to be skinny or high functioning physically? Everyone responds to exercise differently. Some drop weight, others gain. I've been consistently 10+ pounds heavier since half-marathon, and marathon training, but I can run 10+ miles at time. Set some goals and keep experimenting!

Sounds like you are gaining muscle which is great! 

 

Toss out the scale, and eat a normal portion (sounds like you are under eating by far too much). 

Go  by outfit size, not pounds to judge your progress. It will probably seem like nothing is happening but as long as you eat healthy and exercise lots of great things are happening! 

And keep gaining muscle!

It's been mentioned before so I apologise for reiterating the point. Your nutrition doesn't sound regular enough to maintain your metabolism, this is going to lead to the breakdown of mass, further decreasing your metabolism.

If I were you, I'd try increasing your food regularity to around 3-4 small portions per day. I'd also decrease the amount of cardiovascular activity you're doing, too much of this will breakdown mass further. Add all mentioned points together and your metabolic rate is going to be rock bottom. Try doing more multi-joint resistance training, my staple diet is:

Deadlift, Overhead squat, Back squat, Front squat, Overhead press, Throw Oly lifting if you know it too.

If you can try and incorporatecthese things you should hopefully see a difference. I completely agree with other peoples comments though, weight is just a number and completely meaningless. It's all about how you feel :-)

http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/releases/46328.php " In New South Wales (NSW) -- in contrast to metropolitan Sydney, where 100 percent of the population has access to fluoridated water -- only 59 percent of the population living outside Sydney has access to fluoridated water."

Fluoride is from the direct effluent from the smoke-scrubber stacks at area fertilizer plants making industrial farm fertilizer. The australian-made documentary Firewater clearly portrays this within the first 15 minutes (youtube). Healthy kidneys can only get rid of 50% of it, as reported. The rest causes the body to swell, especially by adding fat cells, to have somewhere to bind-up the excess toxin, once the rest of the organs and other tissues are saturated.

Consider taking at least 50mg a day of iodine, that's about 8 drops of standard Lugol's solution. I know I bang this drum a lot, however, there are really a few simple things people can do: Get lots of sun Get lots of iodine Cleansing, exercise of the right kind, and no grains/no sugar, paleo diet.

Increase the amount of iodine to 150mg/day within a few weeks. Within 2 months you will see your body become more lean and tone with little effort. To divert the pollutants coming in through the city water, consider rainwater catchment or some method of filtration (KDF).

While paleo removes the endocrine dysfunctional effects of unfermented grains and potentially - sugars, from the diet, it does not address the other endocrine disruption caused by this poisonous chemical mixed with numerous other poisons.

Pharmacy grade Lugols is around 60AUS per litre. It's a tiny investment for the beneficial outcome. If you had widespread, easy access to sea vegetables, you might investigate that. Iodine content varies widely though. I can think it might be helpful for support nutrients.

Note: I have personally done all this work myself and directly assisted dozens of people with it and either witnessed the effects in some cases, or had them relay them to me in others. This is not written from merely reading some online documents or what some babel-headed medical school student repeated (hearsay) from his religious order, but from the wisdom of doing. If anyone has a first-hand eye-witness testimony, bring it forward. For the record, I have not seen any superior evidence to-date which contradicts.

Not very familiar with iodine and sunlight effects.. I'm headed on a family vacation to Puerto Rico for a week where we plan to be at the beach every day. Does this mean increased sun exposure could help me out? Will it "shock" my system and have a lasting effect, or will the effect wear off as soon as I come home and stop spending time in the sun? Thanks for the advice, very interesting idea

Sun: In short, sun exposure good! I use a bed with a specific configuration to expose for longer term at less intensity. Complete details pending in an audio on sun, light and tanning. Waiting for the hosting provider to active an online web account for the last 24 hours. // I caution unless you spend a week getting the body up-to-speed by moderate exposure, you are likely to burn, going from a no-tan environment to full-on PR beaches.

What if a person has had a severe allergic reaction to iodide-based contrast dye used in CAT scans? Does that contraindicate using iodine in this way? Is there another option?

Hmm... some of the formatting in the editor did not carry-over into the final post.

Contrast dye used in CAT scans produces this: http://blog.remakehealth.com/blog_Healthcare_Consumers-0/bid/10276/What-are-the-side-effects-of-CT-scan-and-MRI-scan-dye was the first link I found. I don't want anybody injecting anything into my veins, and the injected dye is not pure iodine with water: Lugol's is _only_ iodine (I2), potassium iodide (KI) and water in an 5/10/85 ratio. Furthermore, iodine is taken via the GI tract in lower doses over time, giving the kidneys opportunity to filter out the poisons and the endocrine system time to adjust.

Haha you are a horrible person. Great job, you probably have a lot of self rooted deep problems with yourself so you make up hurtful comments to make yourself feel better. 

 

I hope some day you become a happy person.
