  • No more weight loss

    I need some serious help. I've been Paleo since 2/27/12. NOT to lose weight but to detox, etc. Unfortunately I have lost some weight and I can't afford to lose more. I eat a lot of nut butter, meat, chicken, eggs, honey, avocado and loads of fruits and vegs. Help me put some weight back on, please.

    Oh, and how do I contact a moderator to change my name on the forum?

    have you added back starchy foods? like bananas, potatoes, yams, etc?

    are you doing any resistance training to build muscle?
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

      Yeah, eat sweet potatoes with lots of fat like tallow and butter and you should gain some weight, healthily.

        add more carbs (like others have said-with bananas, sweet potatoes, and such). Eat more fat. Look at your exercise program and make sure you aren't overdoing things.

          carbs + fat will help you gain weight. Carbs in the absence of fat, and fat in the absence of carbs, help lose it.

              What's so funny about detox? Do Whole30 and all sorts of nasty gunk comes out of your body, dude.

                  When I cut out dairy during Whole30, I had all sorts of snot and loogies coming out of me. Can't tell me that's not a detox. Also if you go meat only for a week or two, you poop like mad (at least I did). In my mind, that's also detox.

                  Furthermore, I've also heard stories of oils and junk coming out of people's bodies during the process. Detox. No longer craving carbs & sugar = successful detox.

                      My problem with the whole "detox" thing is no one ever says what toxins specifically are being excreted by the body. Also, but no less important, the word "toxin" itself is loaded. It sets up the gullible to start seeing their bodies as polluted, which can lead to a lot of stress through obsession with being "clean."

                      I was borderline obese for 10 years, overweight for over 20. When I tried Whole 30, I never had any signs of "detox," and I was eating crap just as unhealthy as anyone else for all those years. I also did a water fast for 8 days at one point and noticed nothing strange.

                      The dairy thing makes me think that yes, something in dairy is an allergen for you, and your body had built up all those loogies and mucus in defense against it, to discharge them when it saw that the allergen was removed. Maybe your body isn't "detoxifying" itself, it's just getting rid of mucus that it doesn't need. Likewise, I've heard lots of anecdotal evidence that fiber bungs up your bowels. Remove that fiber and whoosh. Oils and junk? Probably related to the mucus; things the body made to defend itself, which it no longer needs.

                        yes and yes. I eat a banana every day and sweet potatoes every week. I'm Paleo - not Primal so regular potatoes are out.

                          I already eat a lot of Paleo friendly carbs, protein and fats. I have MS but I try to use a cross training machine daily. Still, I lose weight.

                            Do you do okay with dairy? I know you say you are Paleo so have cut it out entirely but adding some quality raw cheese or homemade full fat greek-style yogurt from grass fed milk may help. Grass fed butter also. Add it to your coffee. Start adding oils/fats to all veggies, cook your meat in fat. Consider eating regular potatoes with the skins removed. I slice the red skins we get in our produce box and fry them in bacon fat for my kids. I hear they are fantastic. My kids also eat potato chips fried in avocado oil:

                            also, dried fruit. Dates and cherries typically don't have any sugar or crap oils added to them. (I buy at Trader Joes)

                              What's wrong with potatoes?
