Paleo problem, a good one....

Hi everyone, I started a strict Paleo diet back in the beginning of august weighing about 188 lb at 5' 10" and today I sit at 175 and still dropping! I can't stop losing weight! For the first time in my life I am counting my calories to make sure I'm eating enough. This is crazy, I know all I need to do is eat more, I am just amazed to have this problem, I know when I was eating grains and other typical "healthy" foods I could only eat around 2700 cal to maintain and not gain weight, now I have been eating closer to 3000 for this week to try and stop the losses. This stuff works, I don't ever get hungry, no cravings for bad foods anymore. Guess I just wanted to give my success story. If you stick to it, I don't see how this lifestyle can't work for you. Lift big

Re: Paleo problem, a good one....

egg omelet for breakfast, chicken with green vegetables/pepper/mushrooms cooked in coconut oil, big salad with nuts and evoo veggies and some kind of meat for supper, mix up the meats and veggies accordingly and throw in some fruits and such for snacks/garnishes, just kept it simple. frozen meat section will be your best friend

Re: Paleo problem, a good one....

Chuck, it sounds like me 3 years ago. I was shocked and almost alarmed how much weight came-off - yet I did not lose strength. This happened even though I was eating a lot of food each day.

I came to the conclusion that it may have been impossible for a cave-man to become fat.

Are you doing CF or some other programming? Try throwing in some sweet potatoes, they are easy to get down and are calorie dense.

Re: Paleo problem, a good one....

I am doing strictly CFFB as of yesterday, I have been doing main site and CFFB mixed in a little for the summer but I want to improve my strength a little bit. I might have to try the taters, whats the official paleo verdict on sweet potatoes? I've heard some say they're ok, but aren't they on Cordain's no no list?

Re: Paleo problem, a good one....

I too wish I had your problem. But my best suggestion is don't sweat it yet. As long as you are consuming enough calories and your performance hasn't suffered your body will stop losing weight when it's at a happy place.
If your really worried about it start tracking your body fat percentage. Maybe you have more underlying fat than you thought.
