In this video, I touch upon the 3 most common reasons you might not be losing weight on the Paleo Diet:
Paleo Diet Mistakes:
1. You are not restricting your CARB Intake
2. Not getting enough SLEEP
3. You are OVERTRAINING
I wrote an article** that was published on paleoonthego.com on this whole concept of why people are struggling to lose “weight” on the Paleo diet. I’m not really talking about weight I’m talking about fat and for that reason the title is a little misleading. Specifically, I’m talking about why you may not be losing fat on the Paleo diet which is the ultimate goal.
What I’ve learned about the paleo diet from my own journey.
Rule Number 1
If your main focus is to change your body composition, your ratio of fat to lean mass muscle you need to watch your carbohydrate intake. The most common reason why people don’t lose fat on the Paleo diet is they’re not restricting carbohydrates.
The biggest problem that I have with the one-size-fits-all approach to the Paleo diet. LISTS!
*Paleo Diet What Not to Eat
*Paleo Diet What to Eat
*Paleo approved foods,
*non paleo foods
Eat this not that. Simple so easy a caveman can do it. One of the reasons why I hate the caveman term. It’s is an oversimplification of the Paleo diet so if you have a list of foods you can eat a list of foods you can’t eat people will not really regulate how much of the Paleo foods they eat more specifically the carbohydrate sources
Rule Number 2
Sleep is a big deal. Sleep controls everything and if you don’t get enough sleep your body is not going to do what you want it to do.
Rule Number 3
Stop overtraining. This whole caveman diet Paleo diet we’re all badass we’re all warriors mentality results in overtraining. If you’re doing five six CrossFit a week and you’re not a CrossFit Games athlete it’s just unnecessary you are doing more harm than good.

Why You're Not Losing Weight on The Paleo Diet
Chow Down On These Useful Nutrition Tips
Eating healthy, nutritious meals is directly related to your health. The advice from this article will make you as healthy as possible. This article will serve as a guide to proper nutrition.
Choose chocolate that is dark instead of the white or milk varieties. Dark chocolate boasts flavonoids able to lower blood pressure. Such antioxidants work to lower bad cholesterol and raise good cholesterol. Be sure the chocolate has around 70% cacao for better benefits. However, enjoy dark chocolate in moderation because it is high in calories.
One great nutrition tip is to use artificial sweetners and eliminate dietary sugar. Too much sugar can lead to many health issues, including serious heart problems. Try using artificial sweeteners like Stevia or Splenda. You might not notice the difference at all.
Regardless of whether you eat meat or not, try to go vegetarian at least a couple of times each week. Eating this way will reduce your consumption of fats and help you stay healthy.
Fruit juice is a good alternative for people who don’t enjoy cooking fruits or vegetables. You won’t have to worry about preparation when you substitute your vegetables and fruits with fruit juice. Drinking juice through a straw can help you prevent tooth decay.
Try out lots of different nutritious recipes. For example, did you know that you can combine things like milk, peanut butter and powdered protein to make a satisfying protein bar? Oatmeal pancakes is another healthy dish you can make on your own.
Anyway you eat veggies they are good for you. You can get a healthy dose of crucial minerals and vitamins and a sense of fullness that will last for hours. Since it is important to get several servings per day, consider adding vegetables to a soup or salad. This is an easy way to get the nutrients that you need.
Two things linked to nutrition are overall health and wellness. This explains the widespread interest in dietary supplements and eating plans. The information contained in the above article will help you remain healthy and will ensure proper nutrition.
