First off, I was following a Paleo-type diet for 7 months last year. Lost 20 pounds. Thought it was the do all, end all of diets. Only thing is, I would often send myself into starvation mode as I could not consume enough calories. My commute on the bike would leave me crushed, heavy legs, stiffness, etc.
I'm a big reader, especially about cultural dietary lifestyles. I recently tried a whole grain, no white sugar, no white oil way of eating and I feel much better, but I am not loosing weight. I actually gained a few pounds. I would suppose its as close to a Mediterranean diet as I could get.
So without starting a flame war, what should I be doing? Revamp my Paleo way of eating or try something different? Or am I over thinking all this?? I welcome any comments or feedback.
ETA: I do believe in the calories in/calories out scenario. Just sayin'.
