Hi and thanks for your comment.
I don't count my carbs. I just try not to eat too many. I eat nuts only once a week and maybe 100 cal a serving (very little), no alcohol (never), sweet potatoes once a month (backed), rice 1/2 portion once a week (brown rice) and fruit only one serving a day (usually: apples, berries, pears and peaces).
I think my diet is OK but the problem is that I'm on a certain medication (for sleep) that has weight gain as side effect. It's hard to lose weight being on this particular medication but not impossible. I did it in the past, a few years ago. I followed the same Paleo Diet (got the information from Mark's Daily Apple) and lost about 18 pounds in 3.5 months.
Now I try to follow the same diet and hopefully I'll be able to see some changes.
I can not follow a Keto Diet, I tried but I could not do it, too much meat and fat. I got sick of it after a few days.
I also eat only chicken, fish and turkey, no red meat. Dairy products rarely (once a month some hard cheese). And no sugar or processed food. I would have some dates (no sugar added) sometimes or raisins (no sugar added) or black chocolate but only a little and only a few times a month.
I might need to increase my fat intake. I'll buy more avocados. And I really need to drink more water but it's difficult to do it, have to make a greater effort.
Thank you again. Sure, if you have any suggestions, please feel free to comment.
