How quickly do you usually see results eating paleo? How soon would you recommend starting IF?

I have just started the paleo lifestyle and I absolutely love it, I have felt totally satisfied not hungry at all, I skipped dinner last night!!! I was just curious how quickly most people started seeing weight loss and how soon you could start intermittent-fasting?

My suggestion is to go strict paleo for at least 30 days and then start to reincorporate certain foods. Don't start off your paleo journey trying to "paleo-fy" foods.

1) BFC is low toxin coffee coupled with MCT Oil and and a pastured butter. It's how I start my day. 2) As to the stevia: I'm personally not a fan of any sweeteners per se. There is so much information from both sides in regards to stevia and xylitol. On the one hand, zero calorie sweetners are better than sweetners with caloric value. On the other hand, the sweetners could incite a type of Pavlovian response where the brain believes there will be glucose in the bloodstream and upregulates insulin to clear the glucose that it thinks is going to be there.

Thanks for your answer :) I think the biggest reason I considered it is IF doesn't sound that difficult the 8 hour feeding window 16 hour fasting, just cause I prefer not to eat before working out in the mornings and I would rather skip breakfast. I just am ready to burn some fat!!! I have gained 40 lbs in past 2 years after hysterectomy my metabolism is at a halt.

So it sounds like you have already seen results. For me it took three weeks, and then it was like a light switch.

As far as IF, I would first determine why you want to do IF. If you have gotten to the point where you are ready to start, first just go by hunger, if you skip a meal every now and then because you are not hungry, and feel no effects from it, then you are ready to take a more significant step.

good luck!

My body recomposition was DRAMATIC! I also "felt" much better and my performance and outlook improved in every avenue. Granted, I was coming from about as bad as it gets in regards to health, stress, and diet.

Once my weight loss stalled a little bit, I started incorporating IF and haven't looked back since. Going to two meals a day has made planning meals and preparing food MUCH easier to manage. I agree with others, I do a Bulletproof Coffee for breakfast and eat in the afternoon and evening. The best part is there is no midday crash or hunger.

Welcome to living a paleo lifestyle, it's been a game changer for me and I wish the best of luck!

I have seen great results from intermittent fasting. You should probably wait at least a week or two into paleo so you can get fat adapted which will make fasting easier. In my experience skipping breakfast is the easiest way to fast for new people. If you eat dinner at 8 pm and fast until noon the next day then it will be 16 hours. Once you are comfortable doing a 16 hour fast twice a week then start experimenting with longer fasts. I have gone as long as 24 hours and rarely get hungry during fasting.
