RememberMe Posted December 29, 2014 Share Posted December 29, 2014 Hey everyone! I'm attempting my 2nd Whole 30 on Jan 2nd. I did one in November - and although I did almost perfect - I did break the rules a few times. So I'm planning on doing it 100% this time around. I'm going to give some info on my experience with Paleo and I'm hoping if anyone has any input - please give me some advice! Thanks! I'm not overweight by any means but I have always had to watch what I eat and stay active to stay in a good weight range. I switched to about 80% Paleo lifestyle in May of this year - ditching processed foods altogether. I am very active with work and was a runner - about 3-4 days per week. I lost 5 pounds right away. I felt great and I felt like it was effortless. I was then hurt in a work accident and had to be in the hospital for 7 days. I then lost 10-15lbs in just a matter of a couple weeks. I saw numbers on the scale I had never seen before. I was not allowed to run or work for 3 months. I kept up with my 80% Paleo lifestyle, and about a month and 1/2 after my accident my weight started climbing back up = 1-2lbs per week. Then got up and above my original weight before the accident. By this time I was back to running, started strength training, did a 95% Whole 30 in November and still have not lost a single pound. After the Whole30 in November I didn't lost any weight but did feel less bloated and my jeans fit better. When I took my measurements I had lost 0.5" off my waist - but that was it. I'm still currently eating 80-90% Paleo - as I feel great and really believe in the science. I have tracked what I eat - low carb, moderate protein, moderate fat macros, drink drink almost 0 calories, calorie range around 1400-1600/day, I sleep 11pm -7am, I do LISS and resistance training plus have a very active job. I do eat plenty. I am never hungry and if I am I eat- I have eggs/kale/spinach for breakfast, have protein + veggies for lunch and dinner. I follow all the rules of diet and exercise to get leaner - and it's not working. In the past I have been able to just clean up my diet a little bit and workout a little more - and boom - 5 lbs gone....this time - nothing. I was hoping someone could give me some words of advice/encouragement... like it's from the stress of the accident and one day your body will adjust - when? The accident was 5/31/14! To give numbers - prior to accident I was 125 - I'm 5'2". I liked that weight. My lowest was 113 after the accident and now I'm about 131. I'd say it's muscle - but my mid section is not lean by any means. I know it's more than numbers on the scale - but it's just so frustrating to work so hard and eat so well and not see results when everyone else seems to be getting them! Thanks for letting me vent!
