I was just wondering what people noticed first as the weight was lost on Paleo? I see weight loss in wrists and face first. Pants fit better, they are no longer skinny jeans.

Don't feel inflamed after meals. Feel energized/ want to move after meals. No more food coma, even after overeating. Feel pretty zen most of the time, and in general, just feel pretty strong.

You should notice fat loss in the extremities (head, hands, and feet) first, these are the places where you body least likes to store extra fat. The areas of the body that are most essential are less likely to accumulate fat. Notice someone with a 'spare-tire' belly can have lean legs and/or arms. It also has a bit to do with the relief of swelling caused by a bad diet.

I've recently noticed losses in my face, wrists, a bit of the stomach bloat, then thighs, and most recently it looks like my spare tire has really shrunk - all since giving up dairy (minus butter) and becoming extremely conscious about avoiding gluten in addition to my regular grassfed/pastured/wild caught/organic proteins/vegetables/and fats. My clothes fit close to the same as they had prior to this change (about 3 months ago) so I'm not really sure what exactly is happening but it's positive, regardless. I've just added in intermittent fasting with bulletproof coffee so I think this is having a positive effect on my body composition changing too but it's too soon to be sure.

Stomach bloat/hip bones pop out a bit. My face usually slims a bit as well. I haven't lost any weight on it and don't need to but I feel slimmer. It is rather interesting how paleo affects people differently yet usually the same after a few weeks some side affects are always apparent.
