    Get your D3 level checked. Once I got my level above 60 ng /ml, my depression disappeared. More walking will help, too.

      I think you are retaining water -- one side effect of Wellbutrin -- but you should ask your doctor. While you are at it is doesn't hurt to ask for a vitamin D test. If you have insurance it will probably run you around $15.

          Water retention... never thought of it! It could very well be one of the issues. Might explain why I feel bigger at night!
          I will try to get b/w done... in the next few weeks unless my doctor checked it already in August. My new multivitamin has 800 UI Vit D3 in it, but I just started taking it this week. I will also be adding 400 UI a day as of today. Lets see what happens.

          My appetite is still huge. I find it hard to find things to eat now that I *need* to lose weight. I am used to 4 -5 thick slices of bacon a day, steak, 10 % fat greek yogurt, lots of raw veggies, pistachios. I can eat half a chicken in one meal.

            thanks for the info. Which dosage of D3 are you taking? How long did it take to see a difference?

                When it comes to taking vitamins more is not better. I wouldn't start on a vitamin D binge if your vitamin D level is good. Your doctor will recommend a dosage.

                Also the amount a person absords by supplementation varies greatly between individuals. Some people can not absorb any vitamin D by supplementation and must use sunlight (or a tanning bed) to make their own vitamin D.

                  Still not losing weight here. I regret even starting this whole thing, I had no weight to lose now I am 18 lbs heavier. My clothes don't fit anymore. Words cannot express how upset I am.

                      Why did you try this diet in the first place? You were at a normal, stable weight and now you're 18 pounds fatter? I'd recommend ditching primal and going back to what worked before. Or if you truly want to keep up with this diet and risk torturing yourself some more, try going high carb with fruit and potatoes and cut back on fat and protein.

                        Not everyone on here switches to lose weight man. I did it to cultivate a healthy lifestyle. I didn't need to lose any weight either. There is more to health than simply the number on the scale.

                          Being stressed out and fat isn't a good way to cultivate a healthy lifestyle.

                            There are also ways to be healthy without being primal.

                              For the record: 5' 7" and 142lbs = 22.2BMI = Normal weight

                              I mean if OP is stressed then that is self induced. It always is in cases such as this. Yes it's a mental choice to allow such things to affect you so.

                              As to her weight. I repeat...if she wants help she needs to track the changes she has made. Then if she presents that data we may be able to offer some reasonable advice. Just recognize that she is not "overwieght" at this juncture and very well may have been underweight at the start.

                              Oh, just found "my bf % was still around 15"......yeah....borderline dangerously low for a female before she changed her diet. I say good on her for putting on some much needed healthy fat and don't stress about it!

                                Prior to August 2011, I was a vegetarian.... Eating tons of bread and soy products. I will start tracking (again)what I eat on fitday.
