Hi all! I've been doing primal since about January and have made decent gains (started at 314 lbs, 39% fat and am now at 298 lbs, 35-36% fat). Admittedly, the first 3 months were transitional. In any event I'm good on the diet at least 90% of the time, am exercising (twice a week weightlifting intensely, 2-3 times a week walks of 2-5 miles with some short sprints).
I had originally thought that the rate that I'm losing was slow, but ok - I'm generally losing 1-2 lbs a week usually fat. But now I see a lot of reports/blogs of folks who lost a lot more and faster. Any suggestions on how to speed up the process? It's hard to stay motivated. Some thoughts:
Cut fruit? I generally eat fruit twice a day.
More exercise or more intensity or varied?
What worked for you other big guys? I've NEVER been lean - always was very heavy - and metabolically (it seems) very resistant to change. I just had a physical/blood panel and everything was normal.
