Weight loss is not uncommon at the onset of the diet. The body is going through huge changes (switching from fermentative digestion to human digestion) and those changes require energy. Also, healing the body requires even more food energy (legal calories). Add onto this the "wrapping the mind around what can I eat" factor and most people aren't usually getting enough calories for what they need. You probably need more veggies, fruits and honey to keep the weight on especially if you are unable to tolerate the nuts at first. Good oils like olive oil, sunflower oil , butter will also help. Having snacks in between meals of foods that you are able to tolerate will also help keep the weight on until your weight stabilizes and you are able to tolerate more variety.
Avocadoes and olives are great for gaining weight. Olives are not for beginners; so please wait some time before trying them. Look for olives that contain no additives in the health food store.
