Newbie and weight loss questions
« on: September 14, 2016, 04:28:08 AM »
I need to lose 20 lbs. I have tried cutting carbs and counting calories and those are just not right for me. I have tried weight watchers and ended up eating so much processed crap and still staying within their system and obviously not losing. I think paleo is right for me as I still get to enjoy some fruit. I also think dairy is having a negative effect on me. My big question is- will I lose weight? I'm all for all of the other health benefits but my main goal is weight loss without starvation.
Also, I have been having a breakfast of half a blended frozen banana, half a cup of berries and a protein powder (need to find a tasty paleo one), with almond milk. Is this okay? I can't do the whole egg and meat for breakfast thing- my stomach doesn't agree with it. I know some say the sugar in fruit is bad, but for me I know that fruit is not what got me fat- it's a processed crap. Thanks in advance.

Paleo will definitely make you healthier, even with as much whole fruit as you want.  You might have to skip protein at breakfast if you want to avoid meat and eggs, as protein powder is not paleo.

Whether you will lose weight depends on whether you are a man or a woman.  If you are a man, and if you are significantly overweight, you will lose it, though it may take a while.  If you are a woman, you may need to cut down on the fruit, or even cut it out temporarily.

Are you excercising? If not, you should start doing it atleast 20 min. a day.

I recently also lost weight, in order to prevent my body lack of nutrition and vitamins, I drink aloe juice.  The effect is quite good
