Here goes... Im eating primal every day... I love it! But no fat is coming off??? I have barely any fruits sometime berries no nut hole cream in my coffee. I cook with butter or olive oil or coconut oil. Grass fed meet or dear eggs in am with bacon. Lunch is salad with low carb veggies a protein and vinegrette with olive oil. Supper is meat and veggies. I have had thyroid meds since the age of 14. I have lost weight before so i know i can. Sleeping good, not much exercice yet put getting there. The weird thing about it all is that my boyfriend is doing primal eating too and being really good... And ge is not loosing eather. So i think we are doing it wrong... We both need to loose 40 ponds at least. Anyone can help? Sorry for vocabulary... Im french!

Clearly nut hole cream in your coffee is very paleo. Put as much as you can manage in there.

No weight came off for me until I started counting calories. I have been Paleo for a month, and notice more with clothes fitting better than a lot of weight loss though there is some.

While I am a bit concerned about what "dear eggs" might be :), I really don't think you should worry about the lack of weightloss at this point. Rather, just focus on the meal changes, and try to walk everyday. Maybe you're getting some muscle, maybe you'll have a sudden woosh of weight loss in a week or two. Who knows. Give it three months, then let us know what's going on.

Try adding in more exercise, both cardio and weight lifting. Intermittent Fasting helps a lot with weight loss. Not only will you cut calories and only burn fat during a fast but you will also release HGH which is a hormone that aids in burning fat. Fasting also lowers your insulin level.

Fannie, how many calories per day do you eat? Calories in/out count even for low carb. Plus coffee can derange your hormones, it would be good to avoid it for a week or two and see what happens.

I thought I wasn't losing any weight either, I've been eating this way about 1 1/2 months now. I realized the other day though, that despite no "weight" changes, my upper body has become leaner and my waist is about 1 inch smaller at the narrowest point.

For women, especially the pear shaped ones such as myself, we tend to lose body fat on our upper body first, and I know in my experience it can take up to 5 or 6 weeks to notice a difference on my hips or thighs or calves..

I agree with the other poster.. Stick with it! If after 2 or 3 months, still nothing, then try to tweak a few things?

I think at first I was going a bit overboard with the fat and protein eating.. Like overeating. I know people say eat as much fat as you want, but coming from an overeating, high carb background, I can easily pack away 3500 calories a day, and that's not going to let me lose weight. I'm not super active and I don't exercise specifically.

Anyway, good luck!
