    12 days and weight loss stopped

    Primal Fuel
    Hi everyone
    Today is my 12th day eating primal. I went from a diet full of bread and sweets daily to completely paleo, with no wheat and refined sugar at all. I've also cut on grains, but had a little bit of rice yesterday when having Japanese food - don't think it could be very harmful just for once.
    Oh and I was very harsh on sugar (even from fruits) for the first 10 days bc I thought I would lose weight more quickly by doing so. But then I started feeling REALLY depressed and low-energy, so I researched a bit here on the forum and found out that maybe I should increase the fruit intake. So that's what I did, I added some fruit and I feel much better already.
    So far, the cravings have decreased considerably and I feel much more under control when hungry.
    Problem is, I've lost about 2 kilos so far (which could have been just water trapped) but now it's stopped, the scale has been showing 67 kilos for days now.
    Okay it's a good thing that I'm not gaining any weight (I had been gaining weight continuously for years), but still... I have 12 kilos (minimum) to lose! I'm tired of being this chubby!
    I couldn't exercise at all bc like I sad I had NO energy... Now I feel better to start, but anyway, I would like my diet to slim me down, not exercise... We've all seen Mark saying diet is 80% of weight loss...
    Does anyone have an idea of what I could be doing wrong? Tips? Advice?
    Tks a lot!

    You could possibly be eating to much. What does a normal day of eating look like?

    You're 12 days in. Sit tight.

    Breakfast:
    1 cup of latte
    1 egg scrambled with one teaspoon of butter
    1 banana

    Snack (if hungry): some cheese and some fruit, like watermelon

    Lunch:
    Meat, chicken, salmon or tuna (most commonly) as 1/3 of the plate
    Salad and vegetables (other 2/3)

    Snack (only if very hungry, which is getting better now):
    Some fruit, like an apple

    Dinner:
    Same as lunch, OR a cup of yogurt with nuts, OR some cheese

    Tks a lot!

    You can scramble one egg?

    That sounds like very little food, unless your meat at lunch is pretty big.

    Yes I can! :-)
    I tried eating 2 eggs in the morning but it didn't feel good...

    You really think that is little food? What about not losing any more weight so far?

    If you've been eating that much starch and sugar you'll likely feel like crap for several weeks as your body adjusts. It's what's called carb flue.

    If your going to eat fruit I'd focus on berries since they're lower in sugars, they're lower glycemic
    Would I be putting a grain-feed cow on a fad diet if I took it out of the feedlot and put it on pasture eating the grass nature intended?

    Actually I'm already feeling a little better... But it's too much of a sacrifice for not losing any weight... I just wish I could go 80/20, but I am afraid of messing up with the whole process.
    Any ideas?

    It takes time, don't be in such a hurry. A good rate of weight loss is half a pound a week. You may want to only weigh yourself once a week. Have patience.

    Would anyone make any changes to my diet?
