I'm Paulee Peters. Wish I learned about Paleo lifestyle before I got sick and gained alot of weight. I wanted to try paleo for weight loss and health reasons (I was diabetic for a long time). I was given the lecture from my doctor time after time about what was going to happen to me He tried to scare me into shape. He would tell me about loss of vision, nerve damage, kidney disease. I knew I had to do something before it was too late. I didn't want to be the first to go before my parents. I lost a total of 7.5 pounds in 4 years doing vegan, weight watchers, low fat-high exercise, gluten free. you name it, I most likely did it. After I stopped all the weight came back. After all, the ADA diet didn't work for me. These were the so called expert nutritionists. Then, I went Vegan, which helped a bit. But I was getting hungry and still feeling tired all the time with no energy. I was introduced to the paleo diet from a colleague at work whose neighbor had success with it. I started reading everything i coul Continue reading >>

    This is an excerpt from a Personal Trainer on why weekly cheat meals help break plateaus and keep our metabolic engine revving.
    When you are dieting and in a submaintenance level for a prolonged time your metabolism, thyroid production, and leptin levels down regulate and this is usually when weight stalls or there is performace issues during training. The first thing people do on plateaus is reduce calories which actually makes things worse and causes your body to start storing fat to survive and you damage your metabolic rate as well. So when you cheat (calorie spike) it up-regulates your leptin horomone , which controls thyroid, test levels and GH. This basically jacks everything up and your body starts burning fuel more efficiently again.
    The thing is you shouldn't do this more than once every 7 days to make sure you need it and it works. This is very general as you really need to know how to read your body's bio-feedback to determine if a calorie spike is needed. Don't cheat just to cheat.
    I DO personally find that after a good cheat meal (approx 16-17 ounces of take out Jamaican curried chix, rice & peas, steamed cabbage...my favorite cheat), that I do usually drop a few lbs when I'm on a stall/slow down phase.
    How bout you? Do you have cheat meals? Cheat day? Discuss.

    I have consciously decided to go off plan to break a plateau/stall. Oddly, I find that if I take the whole day off and eat whatever I want, I will definitely have a few lb drop on the scale over the next week, whereas if I just had a few bites of off plan food (I'm doing MediFast) the scale would stall for days.
    My most recent break was three days over Thanksgiving...longer than I had anticipated and the longest cheat than I've ever done. I gained 6-7 lbs, but have managed to lose 15 pounds in the two weeks that have followed. My first month of dieting I only lost 16, so this has really shocked and dumbfounded me.
    The obvious implication of cheating, especially when you experience a woosh after, is that it will develop binge/yo-yo eating habits. It's something I'm very conscious of, so I've spaced my cheat days out...usually one day every 6-8 weeks. I don't want to lose all this weight to end up in a cycle of binge-ing and restricting calories to lose every few days.
