    Not losing fat

    Primal Fuel
    I don't count calories because when I do, it just makes me insane&depressed. I eat good fats, lots of protein&lots of veggies. Why am I not losing any fat? I read the "17 Reasons You're Not Losing Weight" article and I'm doing everything I should, but haven't lost any fat. If anything, I feel I look fatter. =(

    WTF??? Am I the only PBer with this issue? It seems so wrong to me =(

    Do you eat dairy? Nuts? Nightshades? Those may be some problems for you if you're consuming them.

    No dairy, no nuts, rarely any fruit&when I do eat fruit it's blueberries. I am so frustrated!!! I'm not seeing any progress whatsoever!!! Doesn't matter if I eat more fat or more protein - nothing!

    All I eat is meat, vegetables&tuna. If I cook anything, it's in olive oil. I eat avocado when I crave it. which is 1-2 times a week. Cut out dairy&nuts hoping it would help. No idea what nightshades are. I don't even eat starchy veggies like potatoes. I've been wanting to since I heard they could reduce my sweet tooth cravings but haven't given it a try yet since I haven't been seeing ANY results. I feel so fat and gross and I just want to be lean. I know it's not just gonna fall off but it'd be nice to see SOME results.

    You're not the only one. I also didn't lose any weight at all on Primal, until I started counting calories. Found out I was eating 1600-1700 a day on the "unweighed unmeasured" system. Lowered calories to 1400 a day and have started losing - slowly. I know calorie counting is a pain but you may need to do it for a few days just to see where you're at. I also allow myself some sort of "treat" once per week - not going crazy - without slowing my loss, in fact, I am doing better than when I was eating perfect 100% of the time.

    Are you strength training?

    Have you tried IF? You'll probably naturally eat less without worrying about counting calories. Or you could just try to eat smaller portions than you have been.

    Give us a layout of a couple of your days of meals and snacks (and beverages).

    Restrict calories. Sometimes you have to do it to lose weight. I know I do. I maintained on PB but didn't lose any weight.
