Get abs as a woman on paleo?

I want to get abs like the ones in this picture. Not super ripped but pretty lean. I have had this goal for a while but I seem stuck at my currant weight and body composition. A bit of background; I lost 30lbs on primal about 1 year ago. According to a 3 site caliper method (not done by an expert but it was checked and re-checked many times with the same result) I have 21% body fat and weigh 115, I am 5ft tall. At the moment I eat mostly fat at 50-60% and 10-15% carbs, the rest is protein. I do stronglifts 2-3 times a week and I recently started HIIT for 15-30min 2x a week. Walk to get around, about 30-60 minutes daily. How should I change my diet and exercise in order to get this?

I regained about 8 lbs due to lack of activity over the winter and just did 2 weeks of alternate day "fasting" (about 500 calories, alternating with your normal maintenanace calories.) Lost 3/4"s inch off my waist. I'm back to a smaller eating window now : 10-4.

Yes. I did a 18/6 schedule (6 hour eating window) last year & dropped my waist down to 25 1/2 inches (I'm 5'6", 125 lbs.)

Thank you, I'll look into it! Have you tried intermittent fasting? Did this work for you?
