I put it this way to him: I could have a terrible, restrictive, and frustrating diet that I lose weight quickly on, learn nothing, and gain back. Or I can eat properly, watch the weight take forever, and learn how to eat for life so that when I do get to a healthy weight I can maintain it.
I notice that a lot of the ladies on here want it off and they wanted it off yesterday and almost every one of you talk about how your weight has yoyo'd. I know you've all had lots of success eating primal but you've all faced plateaus and gains because a little weight comes off and you react by going way too far in one direction to try get it off faster. Clear your minds/pallets of any false direction you have taken and start fresh. If you lose a half pound be proud of it and keep doing what you're doing. A half pound a week is still better/faster than the plateauing and yoyo'ing that you guys are putting yourself through when you take your good path and lean too hard into it.
