    No more weight loss

    I need some serious help. I've been Paleo since 2/27/12. NOT to lose weight but to detox, etc. Unfortunately I have lost some weight and I can't afford to lose more. I eat a lot of nut butter, meat, chicken, eggs, honey, avocado and loads of fruits and vegs. Help me put some weight back on, please.

    Oh, and how do I contact a moderator to change my name on the forum?

    have you added back starchy foods? like bananas, potatoes, yams, etc?

    are you doing any resistance training to build muscle?
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

    yes and yes. I eat a banana every day and sweet potatoes every week. I'm Paleo - not Primal so regular potatoes are out.

    What's wrong with potatoes?

    There are no cheat days. There are days when you eat primal and days you don't. As soon as you label a day a cheat day, you're on a diet. Don't be on a diet. ~~ Fernaldo

    Potatoes are a neolithic food and are very high in solanine which is a chemical that people with autoimmune diseases can react very badly to.

    That said, sweet potatoes are fine.
    Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )

    Yeah, eat sweet potatoes with lots of fat like tallow and butter and you should gain some weight, healthily.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    add more carbs (like others have said-with bananas, sweet potatoes, and such). Eat more fat. Look at your exercise program and make sure you aren't overdoing things.

    carbs + fat will help you gain weight. Carbs in the absence of fat, and fat in the absence of carbs, help lose it.
