    Difficulty Losing Weight on Primal Diet

    Shop Now
    Hello. I started my primal journey 18days ago. I have stuck with it for the entire 18 days but have not lost a single pound. Anyone out there have any thoughts?

    I am exercising, drinking plenty of water and following the blueprint but again no success. I have been seeing other peoples success stories in the first 21 days but feel like im missing something.

    Any information is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    I was not successful with weight loss on Primal until I controlled calories as well. But I am a 50 something female starting menopause. Wish I could relate to the success stories where they melt away, but it just didn't happen for me.

    Things like nuts, fruits and starchy veggies (sweet potatoes) can hinder weight loss. If that's your primary goal, eat a smaller amount of those things.

    if you read the book, you'll note that mark says you need a calorie deficit to lose weight. this is a truism which will never change, regardless of your diet. maintaining weight isn't as glued to calories at all, but losing certainly is. don't get into the 'i must cut carbs to inuit levels to make this work' mentality. eat less.

    Gonna need some more information from you, like what you ate for the past couple of days and what kind of exercise you are doing.

    I've been primal 3 months and just had a 3 week period where nothing changed, not weight or inches. now this week I dropped 2.8. So I realize it's not going to happen the same for everyone. I also made sure I marked everything I ate to create a calorie deficit.

    It is impossible to advise without knowing your height, weight and activity level, plus some indication of what you eat in a day.

    I dislike the perception that paleo will automatically make you lose weight (in additional to all kinds of other miracle cures), it won't. If you are eating a good diet and aren't losing weight then you need to try something else. Calorie counting works but you need to be very strict and it sucks being hungry.

    Go big or go home: have you gone into ketosis (<50g / carbs daily)?

    You may also be gaining muscle. Keep with it; it will work.

    Weight loss is not a linear process, but stick to your regime and I promise you, you WILL see the results you're looking for.

    Speaking of, could you share your typical daily food intake for more insight?
