Default Paleo/Primal Eaters - Can't break throug this plateau .. any advice?

I can not break through this plateau ... its been several weeks now with a few bouncing around but mostly hovering at 265 266.

Any advice?

I guess maybe I am just eating too much?

Are you following a specific plan? I found even though my plan is relatively low carb when I would take a closer look at the calories... usually I would find that I was eating more of "little" things without realizing it... an extra piece of fruit here... an extra handful of nuts there... just a little bit "extra" dressing on my super "healthy" salad... All of that healthy food can really start to add up after a while... before you even realize it... So I would need to start measuring and weighing certain things just to get a grip on things again for a little while...

Thanks guys! I had seen the Mark's links. I haven't been exercising. I should see if that breaks the plateau.

I'd say pay more attention to calories- they don't don't count calories on a low-carb plan, but you need a ballpark in my opinion. You will gain weight if you eat more calories, period. I gained weight eating low-carb because I was like OM NOM NOM NO COUNTING CALORIES LET ME EAT ALL THESE NUTS AND CHICKEN BREASTS AND EGGS AND AS MUCH AS I WANT! lol

LOL! You are so right. I didn't gain weight doing this, but I definitely stalled for several weeks. It wasn't until I started cutting out the snacking on the nuts and eat less protein and more veggies that I started losing weight again.

But I have recommitted myself and quickly took off ten pounds by 7/31/14. I am now trying to take off the weight I put back on, and then lose the rest of the weight I was originally trying to lose. ---- Starting weight / Low weight / Current Weight / Goal Weight

Thanks guys. It's true - calories still matter with low carb (although you get to have more with low carb generally) ... I shoudl check that.

Calories yes, but I find I stall most on primal/paleo when I go freestyle on the fat. Fat is very calorie dense, and this may be causing the problem.

All the best!!
