I'm a 24 year old male. Most women I know are hairier than me.
The longer I am paleo, the hairier I become. Hair is growing in places that never had hair before. Places that had hair are getting thicker.
I haven't really lost any weight (I didn't need to), so I am thinking it is from eating more saturated fat and cholesterol which I previously avoided like the plague.
Has anyone else experienced this?

It seems remotely possible that your Paleo food choices, and/or exercise regimen, could be stimulating growth hormone production, or testosterone production. I have an acquaintance who went on growth hormone injections prescribed for anti-aging purposes. He started growing body hair as if he were once again an adolescent. Ring finger and (so he claims) penis size also increased.
