I hope you guys don't mind me splitting this into a separate topic.

loelaj, I would guess that most likely your scale isn't that accurate; most bathroom scales are not.  In some cases, though, people see muscle gains that compensate for fat loss initially, if they were previously not eating sufficient meat.

The amount of meat and eggs you are eating now is sufficient to maintain muscle mass, but if you felt like eating more, it wouldn't be harmful.

After you reach your goal weight you will need to eat more fat, but for now you don't need to unless you want to.  Less fruit might decrease the hunger as it would reduce the insulin spikes.

Hi loelaj,

Have there been any changes to your activity/exercise in this time?

Wondering if anyone here can please help me. So I have been doing Paleo for a little over a week and I notice that my face is a little thinner and my clothes fit better but the scale has not moved. At all. Is this normal?

Diet and nutrition / Re: What are some recomended Prebiotics?

I know about "probiotics", and I also naturally ferment a lot of foods. But I'm know nothing of "prebiotics".

I'd be grateful if anyone could recommend a good source of information on the topic (in addition to Eric's comment above).

Granola, eggs, salads, veg, etc today. Tonight saw me devour a delicious fish curry made by Mrs Pete.

I discovered a quality butter made from grass-fed cow's milk. Unfortunately it's from the other side of the planet (Ireland), so I'll continue to search for a suitable local alternative. I'll go to the local farmer's market tomorrow, and hopefully resist the incredibly tasty food & coffee there.

Alcohol fail - I had a couple of drinks after a tough day. On the positive, coffee withdrawal is abating. I'm drinking "Rooibos" - a caffeine-free tea from South Africa that as a good flavour. I also have a number of herbal teas at hand, as well as quality bone broths in the freezer which I heat up each morning and take to work in a thermal container each day.

I've increasingly noticed the importance of having quality snacks at hand - as I've been eating more regularly my metabolism is increasing. I therefore get hungry more often. I was therefore tempted to use drive-thru while on the road today. I was able to stop at a Japanese kiosk and get some salmon sashimi with grated carrot. Better than Maccas...

Perhaps I should eat more meat/fish/poultry; I have three boiled eggs a day, plus about 150-200g (about 5-7 ounces) of meat/fish/poultry, much of which is very lean. Overall I'm eating better than I ever have before, but I'm wondering if I should reduce fruit consumption in favour of protein and/or fat. Sleep is something I also need to work on; I normally awake naturally after about 5-6 hours of sleep, and while I know this isn't enough I don't understand why it's happening or how to resolve it.
