    Unhappy 1 step forward, 3 steps back!

    I am a little at a loss and puzzled by my body at the moment!

    After being primal for 3 months now it appears I am getting in worse shape than better. In the beginning of going strict primal (I have always eaten healthy/ organic/ low carb and sugar) I saw great results- more energy, slimming down, less cellulitem great skin a general extra pep in my step woo!

    But then things started a downward spiral after the first 2 months- I have gained a lot of weight, my cellulite is worse than it ever was (worse than on SAD!) and has started to come up even in places I never had it before. I get really tired after every meal, my skin is breaking out and my energy is minimal.

    Bloodwork wise I am fit as a fiddle... what happened?!
    Is it too much meat?
    Too much fat?
    Too long in ketosis? (I found I had much less cellulite the less meat I ate before)

    Any comments or advice would be so so appreciated! Loving the lifestyle but not feeling the benefits

    Without knowing what you are eating, it's difficult to say if the problem is something you are eating .

    Are you eating differently now than you were when you first went primal?

    If you feel better eating less meat, eat less meat! Primal is not one size fits all.

    You could just be eating too much food. We don't know without your stats.
