I wanted to write a quick post to see if anyone with more Primal experience or knowledge can assist me with some info. I am a 33 yr old guy that is VERY active and I can gain and lose weight very quickly. I have toyed with the Primal/Paleo style of eating over the last year or two and have found I lean out and feel 110% better when eating Primal/Paleo. I am trying to convince my wife that in this theory of eating and living but after 3-4 weeks of her doing 80-90% Primal she has not see any drop in weight on the scale. I have told her that I think she is seeing a better fit in her clothes but nothing has come off as far as KG's which she seems to focus on. She grew up in Latin America where rice fills the plates with a small side of meat washed down with fully loaded sugar sodas. Snacks here are cakes and sugar loaded foods. She is not a heavy girl, she is built fairly skinny but does carry fat around her belly and hips. I have told her she has been a sugar burner her whole life and it will take time for that stubborn fat she has always had to burn off and to be patient. A daily meal for her would be a boiled eggs for breakfast, salad and meat for lunch and then maybe some meat and veggies for dinner. On weekend it is a little more relaxed eating a small portion of rice or noodles at her parents house and maybe one non primal meal out for dinner on the weekend. She is not very active working at a desk all day but is up and down a lot...other then this not too much outside activity so to speak of. Any and all advice on what a girl can expect for dropping weight vs loosing fat, time it takes to see results and any advice from those that have been there would be great. When I share my knowledge with her she always talks about I drop the weight because I train so hard....I would like some feedback from the forum please!!!!
