    I am following a strict paleo diet but dont seem to be losing weight. I am 55years old 5ft tall and 110 pounds which is a bit heavy for me (usually 105). I wonder if i am consuming too much fat or nuts; i feel very well but am a bit frustrated by my lack of success?

    Diet list?
    We need a bit more info.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.
    Don't forget to play!

    If you're only 5lbs overweight (and is that really overweight for someone of your size?), don't expect it to come off as quickly as 5lbs off of someone who is 50lbs overweight. Also, if you gain any muscle or bone density at all, you're not going to lose those 5lbs. (-: Do you have a way of measuring your body fat? That's a lot more important than weight.

    All other things aside, if you really do need to lose 5lbs of fat and your diet is only paleo, some things to consider are:

    - You need a calorie deficit
    - You need to exercise
    - Stress can cause your body to resist weight loss
    - Lack of sleep or other unhealthy habits can also cause weight problems
    - Same with medication

    So, there's a small handful of ideas for you.

    Started PB on Monday, June 4. I'm focusing on my health in 2012, including taking natural supplements, zumba and strength training, regular church attendance and studying the Bible, spending time with good friends, and reading more. I want to see what health milestones I can achieve this year!

    When you are five feet tall five lbs can be a whole pant size. I'm 5'3'' and 7 lbs will tip me over into my tubby pants.

    To the OP - try giving up nuts and dairy. That helps a lot of women.
    Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )

    I came to Primal via low carb, so I never count calories. I do feel however that if you eat a lot of nuts you're eating a lot of carbs. The lowest carb nuts are pistachios.
