Losing weight on Paleo

Why Some People Don’t Lose Weight on the Paleo Diet

Paleo weight loss results are very often pretty spectacular – and easily achieved. But it is true that not everyone will lose weight with paleo. I’d apologize, but actually it’s nothing to worry about.

Seriously – don’t start thinking that it won’t work! Most people are very likely to experience weight loss on paleo, but some will maintain their weight, others may even gain weight.

Don’t panic!

If you don’t lose weight on a paleo diet there will be a very good reason for it, and it’s this:

You don’t need to!

The great thing about the paleo diet is that you’ll be giving your body the food it was designed to run on. And your body is smart! Given the right food, i.e. paleo food, it will start taking you towards your ideal weight, usually quite quickly.

The Paleo Weight Loss Plan

So, if you need to lose weight then a paleo weight loss plan is perfect.

If, however, you don’t need to lose weight but you do need to lose some fat and gain some lean muscle – perfect again – the paleo diet is for so much more than weight loss! So you might not actually lose weight, but you’ll end up looking fantastic! (and isn’t that what most of us are after?)

The only time you’re actually likely to gain weight on a paleo diet is if you’re just too skinny and you really need to put on weight. Chance are that’s not you or you wouldn’t be reading a Paleo Diet Weight Loss blog!

So there it is – the paleo weight loss stories are true, you will certainly lose weight on paleo – if you need to. And otherwise you’re more likely to see a redistribution – less belly fat, thinner thighs, more lean muscle in your arms and shoulders, especially if you do some exercise in that area – and ladies, don’t worry, you won’t get huge, bulging biceps, just a strong, lean athletic look!

Here’s to you looking and feeling fantastic.
