Hey guys, I'm a 20 yr old female that recently started eating paleo (again). Right now I'm consuming approx. 1,200 calories per day; although, I'll admit, sometimes I consume closer to 1,000. I realize this is probably too little, but I'm... (more)
Let me just throw a quick disclaimer that this is really directed at people who are following, or at least familiar with, the actual LeanGains protocol not LeanGains "style" IFing which I did for a long time. I mean actually carb/calorie cycling... (more)
Have you found any recommendations personally helpful and started using any of them regularly? I am talking about less common things, not so much about ideas that are already widely adopted in Paleo community.
Just wondering how much you guys typically eat (more specifically those who weight train). I am a 16 year old female, 5ft 5.5in. My weight has been fluctuating lately (I try to not weight myself though) and I think I'm around 115lbs. It is... (more)
I have posted before about my concern with how much I eat. I apparently need to gain weight if I want to get my period back, but am scared of doing so. I am a 16 yo female, 5'5.5", about 110lbs. I have had disordered eating habits in the... (more)
Not to be rude, but you post like everyday obsessing over your weight. If you want health and vitality, stick with Paleo. You might gain a little. If so, it was your body's way of telling you that needed to happen. I promise, you won't get "fat"... (more)
I find that whenever I need organ meats most in my diet (ie. period, intense training) I find them the least palatable, and instead want really palatable foods like fruits, nuts, chocolate, starchy vegetables, and fermented dairy?
I'll try to make this a quick question I am 5'6 194lbs+/- male. According to many calorie calculators I should be eating 2200-2500 Cal per day to maintain my weight. I am currently eating between 1500-1800 Cal per day which is well below. I... (more)
Hello, I recently had my blood tested for Cholesterol, HDL, LDL, Triglycerides, Glucose and CRP. The thing that stood out and shocked me about the results were my very high levels of CRP of 20.3 This is in spite of the fact that I have been... (more)

I spend a majority of the year as a professional athlete but am currently in the off-season. This past season I had incorporated Olympic lifting into my regime and saw amazing results. I have about four months of off-season and am looking to... (more)
I am a large man trying to drop weight. I am on a plan that requires me to have 300grams of protein 240 grams of carbs and 115g of fat. I am trying to use the paleo approach but I find it hard to get in those amount of carbs in a day without... (more)
Hello everyone So I recently tried to lean bulk, and totally failed for a variety of reasons. However, In the 5 weeks that I was doing this, I've gained some muscle, but have gotten a bit of the flab back on my belly, and before bulking I was... (more)
Im curious if anyone thinks supplementing Amino Acids is ok/beneficial. I was looking at the standard BCAAS ( http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/musclepharm/bcaa-3-1-2.html )but I also came across a few other that are made from grass fed beef... (more)
I've been eating paleo for about 3 weeks, keeping it pretty low carb and feeling fantastic including dropping about 5 kg in that time (11 lb), and keeping up with my regular routine of weights 2-3x per week, a run a couple of times per week and... (more)
BCAA raise insulin to a high degree. So if you take them pre training during a fasted workout session, would you not shut of the very process increased fat burning you are trying to achieve by fasted training by raising insulin? If insulin is... (more)
Just a straightforward question. My goal is hormonal signaling and fat loss, in an otherwise meat and fat only Leangains diet. I eat two meals, one at 12pm post workout, another at 7pm. Both are equal portions of carb. No carb rest days. ... (more)
Have you ever thought of not measuring your post-workout carbs? Just eat the amount of carbs that helps you feel good. It will take some trial and error, but I've had good results reducing bodyfat doing this. No need to measure anything.
I'm debating on the advantages/disadvantages to Leangains/CBL as far as training times, and carb loading times. Martin's ideal is fasted training at the end of a 16hr fast for max fat burning, at 11am, with mealtime at 12pm and again at 7-8pm,... (more)
IF the goal is fat loss... meal timing is completely irrelevant and makes no difference between eating 1 meal a day or 10 meals a day or fasting 6 hours a day or fasting 20 hours a day... Makes NO difference in body composition.
Doing leangains. My goal is to reach 5-6% bodyfat, reset my fat set-point, keep it there, then add calories slowly leangains recomp style to build muscle. I IF, eat 2 times between 12pm-8pm, train fasted 11am. 2000cal high carb really low fat... (more)
Hey Hackers! I've been hearing about Kiefer and his carb-backloading. It makes sense and I'm interested in trying it out. However, I can't train in the afternoon/night due to work so I train in the mornings. I heard that there is a morning... (more)

So I've been Paleo for 4 months. And I've been off running for 9 months, silly stress fracture and doctor's orders. But, now I'm looking at kicking it back up and doing another half marathon next year. So I'm curious now about combining the 2. I... (more)
All, I am going to go for my first full marathon ever this weekend. Being a paleo for the last 2 years, I have been thinking of doing an experiment on myself during my run: I want to go marathon in a fasted state, hoping that I can tap into fat... (more)
I'm fat adapted keto; meat, fat, and greens. No carbs; I'm sensitive and they make me feel hungry and irritable. I have ZERO PROBLEMS motivating myself to push hard in the gym, ZERO PROBLEMS staying pumped to the last set, ZERO PROBLEMS with... (more)
How long after finishing the last meal does it take to qualify as fasted training? How long to begin autophagy? Once a week I eat at 7am, go to the rock climbing gym and train from 3pm-7pm, then eat at 8pm. Qualify?
