I'm looking at the weight loss results of most here and am extremely impressed with you all! I am recording everything - but still struggling in keeping carbs between 50-150/day. Not quite certain just what I'm doing wrong - unless not doing enough cardio. I do strive to walk approx 4 miles at least 5 x's per week up some steep hills but I guess that's not enough! Any suggestions?

Don't panic about the carbs. My niece is doing the Atkins diet and she can't have over 20grams of carbs p/day. I am having around 100-120grams of carbs p/day and my trainer told me to have more. It all depends on your energy needs and size. You will find what works for you. It has taken me 3 weeks to work things out with my diet and I am learning new things every day. My trainer told me that wieght loss is 85% diet 15% exercise. Good Luck!! Smile

It won't happen over night, but if you don't give up it WILL happen.

Looking at the food you are eating, it doesn't look like the foods that are permitted on the Cordain Paleo diet. Most Paleo diets do not permit any sweetening, no cocoa, minimal fruit, no grains, no root vegetables, no beans, and no dairy. I suggest you locate a copy of the book and read what it permits.

ok...stupid question....I'm seeing the updated list of our group and the pounds lost (or sometimes gained Smile but where do you update a post of your own?? I keep going back to my original post to see this box of "quick reply"!! Anyway....I think after rounding out week one, I am going to switch meal plans. Paleo is just not working for me! And I think it's because I'm consuming more protein than ever and on the good days, ok...but if I sway a teeny,tiny bit on let's say Day 6, I'm up a pound or two because of the high caloric protein I've been eating! Just not working! So....I'm going to count calories and probably follow Dr. Fhurman's meal plan with no more than 3 oz of meat, poultry per day (as he prefers high nutrition, complex carbs). Any comments from any of you?

Hi there people! Is anyone aware of a way I can export all my raw data? It would be cool to be able to do a bit of custom analysis/visualisation. Cheers, Dan.
