Hello to everyone. Have been busy with business comittments and lifes other stories :p. I hope everyone is doing well and spreading the paleo word.
I fell off the wagon for a little while and my weight increased by a few kgs, or to my american friends, that would be Pounds. After feeling sluggish and noticing my waist-line ballooning, i decided to get back on the paleo track. I have been very strict paleo for 18 days now(the longest time i have remained on the diet) and the scales say that i have lost 4kgs (8.8lbs) My goal weight is 82kgs (doctors orders)
At this rate how long would you guys say that i will reach my goal. I feel satiated and as energetic as a rocket. Noticed that the puffiness in my face has gone down dramatically.
A description of my daily eating is as follows: An omellette consisting of 6 eggs, a diced onion, 10 diced mushrooms and 6 pieces of diced bacon. Then its about 4 to 5 chicken breasts throughout the day. Also followed by a large salad of cabbage, 1 carrott and seasoned with extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice.
Thanx in advance guys for any advice and pointers.

How fast? Not to be flip, but I think this is the right answer.
If you fall off the wagon consistently or have poor compliance, then you'll never get there, or will get there temporarily and gain the weight back and even increase, with dieting and frustration for years ahead.
On the other hand, if you stick with the program well, you'll drop the remainder of the weight in a month or a year, depending on your specific physiology and other lifestyle factors, after which you'll maintain your goal effortlessly and deliciously.
For some people it takes a while to learn how to make compliance easy and natural. Once you're there, just be patient and in the long run -- your long, healthy lifetime -- it happens in a blink of the eye.
If you want more specifics than that, I'll guess that for 15kg more, you can hope with your early start to look very good for the summer -- assuming you live in the northern hemisphere -- and pretty damn amazing for the summer after that.
