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.
