Hi all I'm 27 year old female, used to be very active....but around 6 months ago life got completely busy and now I have to go to the gym in the mornings before work to get a workout in. I haven't been consistent, but I'm getting there. I'm also... (more)
I would say calories are way too low. You want to have the biggest metabolic capacity possible, that being as many calories and carbs as you can handle without gaining any weight, and start from there with small deficits, and adjust as you go. If... (more)
Hello. I am new to the Paleo diet and I am trying to organize things so I may begin. My main question is what is a good amount of grams of carbs & fat to consume with this diet? I am sure this is a common question, and from what I have read... (more)

Hello, I am aware of people using myfitnesspal, apps, and websites to track their rough intake as a whole. My problem is how do you know what grams of protein,fat and carbs look like on a plate? So lets say I need 95 total grams of... (more)
Hey guys, few similar variations of this question have been around here, based on my search. However, I'd like to hear some personalized advise. Is it even possible to hit my desired macros with paleo in combination with IF ? I am doing... (more)

Hello! I'm a 25 year old female with 30-40 pounds to lose. I have lost almost 100 lbs, but this last 30-40 has been difficult. I currently weight 175lb and I am about 5ft. I would love some help tweaking my nutrition to get this fat off... (more)
Heard this mentioned on a podcast. I'm curious as to why it isn't being widely used in the paleo community. Is there something besides the gluten in there that people don't like? Seems like a far better option than the various other... (more)

I am working my way toward going VLC (35-40g), or at least cycling in days of being VLC with moderate-to-low carb days. For those of you that track macros/cals, do you count the carbs that come from fiber into your total daily carb intake? Or do... (more)
I'm looking to lose fat, and wondering if I should be tracking macros and what they should be at. Can someone help me out? I want to make sure I"m getting enough fat while keeping carbs as low as I should.
I have been researching paleo now for the last two weeks and i got to say i get confused, and the more i read the worse it gets. I was hoping you guys can help me with some on the macros manly carbohydrates! Age: 20 Weight: 141ib --... (more)
My macros from day to day fluctuate a ton. I don't count calories or macros, but from what I eat, I sometimes go from 10 percent fat or carbs one day, and then 60-70 the next. Is there any problem with this health wise. What about athletics and... (more)
I believe that Mark Sisson's view is that as long as they average out to a good macro ratio(whatever that happens to be for you) and a calorie surplus/deficit that fits your goals it's all good. That makes sense to me.
Yo paleofolks, So I got this question that really bugs be. I have been pretty strict paleo for around 6 months. First I got leaner + more muscular. I got into weightlifting like 1 - 2 months ago to gain a lot of strength and... (more)
Been low carb (appr. 25???75 g/day) for about a year. Saw great results in energy and fat loss the first month or so, then things kind of stalled. Then I came across the carb refeed idea which made perfect sense to me, so now I have started to try... (more)
Hi! I've been following all the great questions and answers here since starting Primal (admittedly with some major slip ups!) six months ago. I'm hoping you guys can give me some advice and lead me in the right direction with my training and... (more)
Pretty self explanatory, an example answer might look like: I have a 40/40/30 carb protein fat split, a bmi of 25 and a bf% of 12% Using this BMI Calc. And estimating my BF using: Alternate BF estimator image for women:... (more)
I'm keen on becoming fat adapted, but when I research it all I can find are people looking to get into ketosis (which personally, I'm not interested in) I was wondering if it was possible to become fat adapted while keeping carbs at 100-150g? Is... (more)
I was hoping you guys could share some collective knowledge regarding women and IF. My wife and I have started the program. We're about a month in, with mixed to little results. Our goal is a cut. She does 2-3 crossfit style workouts per week,... (more)
I heard about this from a buddy of mien at the gym. It is basically saying that meal timing and food quality doesn't matter- as long as you hit your macros (daily calories and protein/fat/carb ratios) you'll have just as good of results. That is,... (more)
Hi all, This is probably going to sound a tad neurotic, but I'm trying to figure out a rough idea of calories and macros in oxtail. I'm currently transitioning from low-carb paleo to the Jaminets' Perfect Health approach, so until I'm used to the... (more)
3 lbs a month sounds like a great growth rate to minimize fat gain. If that's the pace, I wouldn't screw with it, though the protein definitely seems a bit excessive--I'd probably donate 100g of that to my carbohydrate intake.
Ive been VLC meat and greens only, no sugar or starch at all (<20g veggie carb/day) for 6 months now. I feel and look good, but I want more. After seeing such amazing bodies created by the leangains approach, I want to give it a try. Carbs... (more)
I know that you were probably looking for a more specific answer when you posted your question, but I believe that you will have to experiment. I've been using the Leangains approach for a couple of months and I'm still making adjustments.
