Minimal weight loss

I'm a very active 47 year old male. After gaining 15 lbs on prednisone for an ear infection I got back to Crossfit and started eating Paleo. I've been eating by the book Paleo for 17 days and dropped about 3 lbs. I've dropped as much as 20 lbs in a month cutting out grains and sugar but don't seem to be dropping weight with Paleo...thoughts?

I believe I've pinpointed the problem.Too much fruit. I'm cutting it our for a few weeks and I'll see what happens. I eat at the same times each day and don't exceed 8oz of protein per meal. Thank you for your response.

3 lbs in 18 days..lol. The difference with Paleo is no dairy, no artificial sweeteners.

It May possible that your eating schedule is too disordered. This might be one of the reason you are not dropping weight. Please elaborate your question a little bit.

Initial, huge weight loss= water weight. 3lbs in 17 days = pretty average weight loss. I lose 4lbs a month now that I'm within my last 20 lbs of goal. No worries. :) Paleo isn't magic.

So you've dropped 23 lbs in 6 weeks after gaining 15? And you think you are not losing weight?

Also, what is the difference, in your diet, from no grains and sugar to "paleo"
