"I don't know why I can't lose weight on Paleo" Starter Pack

I couldn’t figure out why I had such a hard time losing weight when I ate paleo.

On the daily I would have foods & snacks like these and not surprisingly, at this time I also had insulin resistance and PCOS.

I was eating wayyyyy too much sugar and too many carbs for my body. EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE “HEALTHY” CARBS.

None of these foods have added sugars or refined sugars but they all have a shitload of natural sugars or starches.

•sauerkraut
•kimchi
•pickles
•fermented veggies
•water kefir
•homemade kombucha that is fermented extra long so the sugar content is very low
•natto
•tempeh
•full fat yogurt
•good...
