Simply eating a Paleo diet of real, nutrient-dense, wholesome foods can give you great weight loss, health, and wellness results. 

I’ve experienced many of these benefits since going Paleo over five years ago. 

Benefits have included cleared eczema, no more allergies (sneezing, coughing, hay fever), a consistent and on-time period, improved mood management, and a 75-lbs weight loss.

If you do experience a weight loss plateau or aren’t seeing the weight loss results you’d like to see, there are tweaks to the Paleo diet you can give a try. 

I’ve made these same tweaks and saw improvements quickly.


Unlocking the Secret Ingredients: Essentials for a Weight-Loss-Boosting Paleo Breakfast

Paleo diets focus on consuming whole, unprocessed foods similar to what our ancestors might have eaten during the Paleolithic era. 

For weight loss, a Paleo breakfast should include a good balance of protein, healthy fats, and low-carb vegetables or fruits to keep you full and energized without adding excess calories.

Discover the Paleo Advantage: Why This Diet is a Game-Changer for Weight Loss

  • High in Protein: Helps in muscle building and satiety.
  • Low in Carbs: Reduces insulin spikes, aiding fat loss.
  • Rich in Fiber: Improves digestion and prolongs fullness.

The Weight Loss Breakthrough: What I Eliminated from My Paleo Diet for Faster Results

I removed foods that are starchy and/or super sweet, so typically these are fruits and any root vegetables. 

I also removed nuts and nut butters. This makes a Paleo routine more ketogenic. 

If you do fine on nuts and nut butters, keep them. But if you know yourself to go overboard, don’t even start.

Below is a list of what I removed from my Paleo diet to see the most weight loss. 

Don’t remove them from your diet if you’re doing just fine and moving at a pace that’s optimal for you. 

If you’re feeling increased cravings and hunger after removing something, put it back. 

If you’re feeling increased cravings and hunger after adding something, remove it.

Optimal for you can also mean removing none of these foods, or just one of these foods, but seeing the progress you’re pleased with. 

Tweak and test, tweak and test. Take notes. These are the juicy tidbits that can make keeping a food journal transformative.

Hidden Saboteurs: Foods You Might Need to Drop to Supercharge Your Paleo Weight Loss

  • Beets

And if you did eat beans, rice, oats, and sprouted wheat grain breads as part of your Paleo diet, you should also try removing those from your routine to see better weight loss results.
