    So discouraged:(

    Primal Fuel
    I began The PB 2 wks. ago. I am strictly following the diet plan and exercising every day.
    I am eating meats and veggies 3x a day and NO snacking, sans an apple here or a handful of blueberries.
    My weight has actually INCREASED! I am beginning to think that this may not be the weight loss diet for me.
    I am SO DISCOURAGED(

    I would depend on what your weight was to begin with, and your body composition. If you are gaining muscle and losing fat there is every chance you will put on weight but appear slimmer. Thin people do put on weight in terms of mass, but in a good way in terms of body composition.

    Can you post a sample menu for a day? Also you may not actually need to eat 3x a day. Are you eating just until you feel full and then stopping? Are you cooking a meal because you are actually hungry, and not just because "I should eat now"?

    Edit to add: Are you maybe not eating enough fat? Post what you eat in a day so we can help you pinpoint what your issue might be.

    This is not a weight loss diet.

    This too. It's a permanent healthy life change that incidentally tends to result in weight loss for those who need it and weight gain for those that need it.

    Hey, Michelle --

    Not to get discouraged yet. Can you post what you've eaten all week? There is a lot of tweaking most of us go through, and sometimes you can eat just a little something that throws everything off. If you post your food, people can give lots of ideas that might work for you.

    Hang on in there! Increased weight is not fun.

    Warmly,
    Lopi

    Depending on your diet/lifestyle before starting, 2 weeks may not be enough time for YOUR body to adjust. I've heard of people on other diets not getting results because their body thinks they are starving and slows the metabolism down.

    Are you using a lot of salt that may be contributing to "water weight"?

    Breakfast- Left over pulled pork and one egg
    Lunch - venison burger and broccoli.
    Banana
    Dinner- 4 slices London broil and squash.

    Walking 2miles a day and gym 3x a week.
    I am completely full and do not snack. Have been strictly PB.
    Perhaps my portions are not small enough? I have read testimonials here of at least some weight loss within 14 days?

    I have the fitpal app that measures sodium.
    I am not " restricting" it?

    If your goal is to lose weight, you might want to try cutting out the banana and other sweet fruit, even if they are PB-friendly, at least at first. Eat berries if you would like, but even that not every day. Other people with other goals may eat them, but I have personally found them to inhibit my weight loss. Also make sure that your pulled pork doesn't have sugar in it. Otherwise your menu looks great! Eat plenty of fat please And don't worry too much, you will feel better and meet your goals eventually.
