Weight gain.....

Answered on August 19, 2014

I went on paleo based on my ObGyn (yup!) recommendation to see if it improved some health challenges. I started two weeks ago by cutting out wheat, dairy,legumes and cored fruit.... I feel better but to my frustration I have gained 2 1/2 lbs vs. losing the "claimed"10 lbs in first few weeks...agh! Why?

Pleas do a more elaborated review of what exactly your paleo scheme has been until now, contemplating all types of food, quantities, timings, meals per day, etc. and also what is your lifestyle and current body fat %. Then I'm sure we will be able to come up with a plan for you :)

How do you look, feel, and perform? Your weight can fluctuate 5+ pounds in a single day due to a variety of reasons. Focus on how you feel and how your clothes fit. This isn't a quick fix "diet". This is about getting healthy. Looks will follow health.

I can easily tell you a way to lose 10 pounds in a week. Will it stick? Is it healthy? Is it sustainable? NO. Check back in 2 weeks and see how you look, feel, and perform.

Give your scale away to someone you don't like.

Nuts, fruits, and starchy foods (sweet potatoes especially) make me gain weight. Too high carb or calories, I guess.
