  • Has anyone Gained Weight going Primal/paleo

    Hi all - I recently made the transition to 'Primal' - and I have gained weight - very quickly. I have also been working out harder - and lifting more (I was a hard-core runner). The weight has come on so quickly - that I am sure it can't be muscle weight. Any thoughts? Has this happened to anyone temporarily? Like glycogen or water weight?


    Thanks so much.

    Well, you're going to have to give more information than that. What have you been eating? How much do you weigh, and how tall are you?
    Remember, you are unique just like everybody else.

      I have gained muscle on this diet with exercise, but I'm leaner than I ever was before.

        Nope, I've lost.

        Did you want to gain or was this an unwanted side effect? Are you male or female?

          Whenever I pick up strength training after a long time off, I retain a shitload of water, and it takes it a while to come off.

          Other than that, I've only gained weight on the PB when I go waaaay off the this year's Hanukkah and Christmas indiscretions *shudders*
