Given the issues of fat malabsorption and restricted foods I am on a rapid decrease in weight and I am pretty small to start with. I am looking for any suggestions for increasing caloric intake while I can't digest fat. Note I am on... (more)
Check out Sam Feltham's 21 Day 5,000 Calorie Challenge... as he eats a Paleo diet! I don't know if he ever says "Paleo" but that's the kind of foods he's eating on this experiment. The high calorie numbers say he should gain weight, but given... (more)
Hello all! So I've been trying to lose weight for about 3 years. So I'm 5'7, and about 160 pounds. Very curvy and muscular, (especially in the legs...think of a chubbier Beyonce lol) and I've found it very hard to lose fat, but very easy to gain... (more)
Hello, I've been strict paleo/clean eating for months now. I also CrossFit at least 5 times a week plus ride my bike as often as possible. I started out at 133 (my goal weight is 125 which I've been before). I went up to 143 lbs. over the past few... (more)
Hi guys, I just can't budge it! I'm 5'5 and 147pounds and have been Paleo for about 5 weeks now. I workout 4 times a week -10 mins walk warmup, 30 mins high interval exersizes bodyrock.tv style, 10 mins abs and 10 mins interval sprint... (more)
The q says it all... I hear high fiber foods are good for us women out there? Things like beans, edamames, etc.... Any other high fiber foods that are good..? All to help out in weight loss, of course.
I've been VLC Paleo for 6 weeks. I was already gluten and dairy free. I am also practicing IF -- my eating window is 2pm to 8pm. I was excited to weigh myself after the first 4 weeks, expecting some fabulous weight loss results. I lost 4 pounds. I... (more)
Hi, I'm on day 14 of my whole 30. I've cheated here and there (alcohol/increasing fruit intake) but have tried to stay pretty strict. My reasons for trying paleo were to improve my energy level, decrease gastrointestinal upsets and bloating, and... (more)
Hello. I just started the Paleo diet and want to lose 10 pounds. Am I eating too much fat to reach my goal? I am 35, female and 5 feet tall and am used to the SAD of low fat and calorie counting. Example of a day's food: Breakfast: 2 eggs... (more)
I rarely track calories as it's boring and I like to eat for life. However, as I've been eating well but not losing the 30 pounds I want to lose I just fed all the data into a calories tracker. My basal metabolic rate is 1400 calories a day and... (more)
Hi! I've been away from paleohacks and also the paleo diet for over a year, as I have been working as a vegetarian chef at a yoga resort in India, and have been eating mostly vegan during this time. I can't help but notice that no matter how... (more)
I have been on the Paleo diet for six weeks now. So far the results are fairly positive...I've lost 11 pounds to date..I feel wonderful...I'm actually sleeping through the night, have no more acid reflux, my stomach doesn't hurt when I eat a meal... (more)
The average weight loss is a useless number in this situation since everyone is different. You should expect your weight to eventually get to your optimal weight, and stay there provided you stay paleo. The number isn't really important.
Hello. I am 30 and 185lbs 5'4. I started Paleo 2 months ago and I was at 190 when I started. Also my BMI/Fat% and measurements are still pretty much the same. I have always ate pretty healthy and mild exercise but I really decided to give it my... (more)
Wild salmon, mackerel and sardines are all on my menu. Not to mention an array of shellfish. I love lobster, scallops, crab, prawns (shrimp) etc I live on a small island, so we get better access than a lot of places to seafood.
I have done most low carbs. However after research paleo seems more for me. I have given up alcohol, I train daily. I have 20 lb I want to lose then keep the paleo life style. My problem is I have strong sugar cravings, and I tend to not have much... (more)
I feel you on the sugar cravings. What worked for me is to completely eliminate all sugars and replace with fat and animal protein to satiate you for 30 days. If you still have cravings afterwards (like I did) buy 100% dark chocolate and eat a... (more)
I have been observing my weight loss and I can say when will it stop? I started paleo about 2 months ago, I love the diet! I was 215 I believe 7 months ago I didn't weigh myself unfortunately. Now Im 161 with a 3 pound loss in 15 days? is this... (more)
Your initial weight loss is fast and then it will trim down. However, if you are overcoming really bad eating and exercise habits. Rejoice at your initial success and let more come. Nevertheless, it slows to about 1.5 pounds a week, or thereabouts. (more)
Hey guys, what are your thoughts on preparing food at the beginning of the week & nutrient degradation? I have a very large family, luckily me & my other half are very keen cooks & we cook from scratch 90% of the time. I have thought... (more)
I am a bridesmaid in my cousins wedding and want to look great in my dress without it feeling too tight. Thankfully I've managed to lose 20 pounds in the last few months and even the last few days have after cutting out dairy. Any tips would be... (more)
So I've been paleo for 7+ months now and loving it in the sense that I've lost weight, no longer bloated and digesting food properly. But I want to lean up, so lowering my carb intake and hitting up HIT training... As I've been injured I've only... (more)
Hi! I am female and have 10-15 pounds to lose. I am paleo for a couple of months and lost a little bit of fat, got leaner, stronger and sexier. Feel great. But now I just binge out every day on paleo food and can't lose more weight. I actually put... (more)
Saw this about Jimmy Moore's weight loss, says she calculated his calories, fat, protein and carb and he reduced everything and the calorie reduction is matching is weight... (more)
Is it possible? There are some interesting studies: Chronic Ethanol Consumption Lessens the Gain of Body Weight jpet.aspetjournals.org/content/331/1/23.full Alcoholics, as compared with social drinkers, showed a lower body weight due essentially... (more)
I've been doing a pretty good job of sticking to the "rules" and not cheating, but I'm not losing any weight. I know the point is to feel better and I do, but I had gained 10 lbs before I started Paleo and I'd like my clothes to fit again! I'm... (more)
I would cut your carbs back a little if you're trying to lean out. Do away with the fruit and definitely cut the larabars. They're not bad ingredient wise but they are carb heavy. Leave the honey out of the tea too. Sweet potatoes/BN squash good... (more)
Acetyl L-Carnitine works wonders for cognition. I have fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue syndrome/ME and 4g with water in the morning wakes up my life! Amazing. From having a foggy brain, lethargic, tired all the time to bursting at the seams :)
