    HELP.Not loosing weight.

    Primal Fuel
    Hi,have been 'intermittent fasting' for maybe 2 - 3 weeks now.
    I need to loose weight but have not lost any.
    Very disappointing and counter intuitive.
    I keep expecting it to happen!!
    Can anyone help please?

    Expect harder, you're not expecting hard enough.

    Very funny guy.

    1annie, I can totally relate. I don't know if you are new-ish to PB, you didn't say. I am new, and I have been having to tell myself to just hang in there and be patient. I'm 3+ weeks in and finally starting to see the scale move (and I think it is partly due to adding in vitamin D). I know my body/metabolism need to heal, but that's just me. I don't know your situation. I imagine there could be all sorts of factors you haven't shared, but good luck to you figuring out what it is your body needs.

    Hi 1annie. How are the other primal aspects of you life? Diet, stress, sleep, exercise? Other stressors may be blocking your fat loss. Also make sure that your intermittent fasting is intermittent If you're using the same eating pattern every day then you might be losing some of the benefits.

    But what have you been eating between fasts? I didn't start losing weight until I began counting calories and making sure that my intake was at the right level to lose about 1lb per week.
    Why use a sledge hammer to crack a nut when a steam roller is even more effective, and, is fun to drive.
