Hey, I am a 5'5", 18 yr old girl around 135 lbs or so (approx no scale) who's been on the Paleo Diet since Lent. My q is I was wondering if I am not eating dairy, grains, legumes, refined sugar products, processed food, and NOW (since I've heard... (more)
I am an athlete (basketball player) currently on the paleo diet. I am looking to lean out, but feel as if I will not get enough energy if I take both fruits and nuts out of my diet. Which of the two if taken out would yield better results for... (more)
nuts are far more calorie dense than fruit. take the nuts out, keep the fruit. it's VLC mythos that fruit will magically prevent fat loss. energy balance will always rule, even if people are too stupid to believe it.
I am looking for help on refining my diet to get leaner. I've een following a paleo diet for 2 years, but latley it's been more of just a gluten-free diet. Started going to crossfit 3/week since December 2013. Play basketball once per week.... (more)
I recently started counting macros (a few days ago actually) and have been hitting them since. I eat whole foods, non of the Pop Tart IIFYM stuff. I am not fully Paleo as I consume SPROUTED grains and legumes. I don't eat gluten, fake sugars,... (more)
I'm a 16 year old girl, 5'4" , 150lbs. Not sure what my BF % is, but probably around 25%. I want to lean out, as I've put on a substantial amount of muscle in my last year of Crossfit. I've been paleo for about a year and a half. An average... (more)
What foods worked best for adding lean muscle onto your frame? Post any foods and make sure to emphasize the staples and any relevant details. Also, so that people will know who's advice to take and who's to ignore I'll only be upvoting answers... (more)
Meat, animal fat, eggs, sweet potato, potato, olives/oil, avocados, coconut, nuts (macadamia has the best qualities and highest in calories). Basically high fat and starchy carbs are your best bet on the paleo diet.
(ignore my english please, I'm from germany) I am female, 16 years old, at around 120 lbs and 5'6 height. My food and health journey started two years ago (due to my sister being a little too heavy, I myself had no "real" issues) and sadly I... (more)
So, with the paleo diet, you're supposed to eat a lot of lean meats right? The problem is I don't eat most meats except for beef...so, will i have to start eating chicken, turkey, and other lean meats now? Or can I just continue with my current... (more)
I'm trying to lose weight right now, but I would like to simultaneously keep lean muscle and build muscle/burn body fat. I know I've read the BEST thing to do is HIIT once a week, and alternate weight lifting/cardio during the week. I really don't... (more)
I currently put at least a tablespoon or 2 of coconut oil with y 3 eggs in the morning and probably eat another 6 to 8 tablespoons as part of my meals throughout the rest of the day. Could this be too much? I'm a multi-event track athlete in... (more)
Recently I was diagnosed with NAFLD. My liver enzymes were slightly elevated so the Doc sent me in for an abdominal ultrasound. I carry around 9% bodyfat on average throughout the year and have no problems with insulin sensitivity. I ate pretty... (more)
I've always felt that there's no point in being strong or having big muscles if they are covered in a layer of fat. Thus, my question is for those of you interested in weight training but also aesthetics. How many carbs a day do you eat to... (more)
Hey guys, I lost about 80 lbs two years ago and ever since then its been a terrible struggle to lose the last 10-15lbs. I'm a young male (5'7" and 160lbs). I lift weights 3x/week and walk a decent amount. I used to do a lot of cardio and... (more)
It has not been possible for me and that is not due to a lack of discipline or effort no matter what anyone else may choose to believe. I have tried pretty much everything. Well, I have tried everything I am willing to try which generally means... (more)
It's a very basic question, I've read between 20 and 34 g per 100g which is quite a difference it makes it tough when trying to work out how much protein I'm eating. Any help would be helpful, also do most lean meats have a pretty similar... (more)
So I am getting some conflicting information from this site. A Lot of people here put more emphasis on meat + fat. However Mark Sission and Dr. Cordain describe the diet as a lot of green with a little lean protein. All of the books I have stress... (more)
Hello fellow paleo community Abit of background first. I'm 22 years old, 6'1, 180 pounds, 7-8%BF, strength train 4 times a week. I've been following a fairly strict paleo diet for the past year. After numerous attempts at various diets (vegan,... (more)
Sites like Rob Wolff's lists beef,lamb,chicken as lean meats...but I've noticed for instance that lamb contains quite some fat and apart from chickenbreast,chicken is fattier too.Same goes for beef and pork... So,I'm confused....when's a meat... (more)
Simple question. Have there been any stories of a lean person gaining body fat on a typical Paleo diet? I am very curious. The reasoning behind the diet sounds fantastic but there is still some part of my stubborn brain that's very hesitant... (more)
If I include a lot of fruit and nuts, make an attempt to eat until I'm completely full, and sit on my ass all day I can get a bit of a pudge going. Other than that, no.
I posted a question several days ago regarding my weight loss. It's stabilized and is slowly going back up to where I want it to be (thank you everyone for your ideas--been drinking some goat's milk every day and including more starchy foods). I... (more)
Ok so i've been rocking the cave dude diet for 3 weeks. I'm coming from a frutarian diet. Transitioning over to eating lots of animal was a piece of cake and has been quite enjoyable. Bacon and meat kicks booty, and i love booty, especially a nice... (more)

Lift heavy. High fat/high protein/low carb. Sleep.

After 20 years of vegetarianism, I went paleo back in November. I leaned out very quickly and put on some muscle mass - going from about 13% bodyfat to about 7% or 8%. (I'm 5'7" and now 135 lbs). Energy level was great during this time as my body... (more)
I went through the whole 30 day challenge and lost 20 lbs. Since then I haven't lost any weight. I still have another 20 to go before I am at my goal weight, and am wondering if anyone has some ideas as to why I've gone on weight loss pause.... (more)
I always recommend avoiding nuts, fruit and dairy during weight loss. Those I've found to be the biggest confounders for the majority, even those who respond well to them normally. After your weight loss is complete you can establish your personal... (more)
