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.
Lift weights (bench, squat and deadlift) and do sprints. Eat one gram protein per lb lean body mass. Consume whey powder. Still possible to be Paleo and do this and have great health. (Whey is not Paleo but lots of folks take it).
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)
Has anyone every come across a grass-fed/finished farm that sells very tender meat? I've ordered quarter cows from a few farms now, and while I've enjoyed a lot of the meat, I find that the steaks and briskets tend to be tough. Part of the issue... (more)
Paleo... Top 3 key points? I'm sure as it is a goal for many, a thread with everyone's 2-3 top tips would be awesome. Obviously everyones body is different, just interesting to hear everyones pov, instead of having to search 'x' amount of... (more)
Lift heavy. High fat/high protein/low carb. Sleep.
Now that I'm becoming somewhat serious about exercising, I'm interested in calculating my body fat percentage. I am seeing two kinds in the market: (i) Stand-alone ones you can hold which seems to be using electric current; and (ii) one that... (more)
I a beginner IF'er, with about 8 months of 95% paleo eating behind. So far I've had good progress, but I'm still looking into leaning a bit. I'm currently 6'1 and about 174-176 lbs, rough estimate of BF is somewhere around 15%. The Leangains... (more)

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)
We have talked a lot about nuts being one of those items that should be limited or should go to really lean out, but I want to know why. I have heard it so often in the Paleo world that I believe it, but I am curious as to why this would be. If... (more)
a couple things: LA: Short Chain Omega 6 Inflammation. Bingeing, many people report that Nuts beget hunger. Whatever is going on chemically, in these people, eating a few makes them ravenous for more. Snacking, some people also use nuts to fill... (more)
Let's hear some body fat percentages! Just how lean is everyone getting on strict paleo? It seems like we see tons of success stories.. people dropping a ton of weight in going from obese to fit, but I haven't seen too many completely shredded... (more)
I noticed some paleos took issue with meat in the paleo diet being described in the media as "lean". Isn't it true that wild and pastured meat tends to be quite lean? Farm animals in factory farms are fattened up, fed lots, kept in a sedentary... (more)
The "lean meat" stuff just gets tiring. There's no reason why you just can't say "meat". The only reason to throw in "lean" is a) You think fat is bad, or b) You don't want to scare you audience, who thinks fat is bad.
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'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)
I'm hesitant to even TRY asking this here because of the amount of self proclaimed experts and anecdotal "proof" people espouse... so please, keep it factual, and cite your sources if you can. I'm new to sports. I've been a healthy eater forever,... (more)
Hello everyone, I am wondering why the paleolithic diet, in many cases, promotes lean meats over fater alternatives. Hasn??t the research that been made on our evolution proven that hunter-gatherers consumed all bits and pieces of the animal. From... (more)
It doesn't. Fattier cuts of grassfed/organic meats, leaner cuts of conventional meats. High fat organ meats are also popular.
Something I don't get in the paleo community is the fact that everyone wants to be extremely lean. I personally have been very lean my whole life, abs showing and all, but I have almost always felt miserable. The little time I have packed on some... (more)
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)
Bio: 22 year old male, 22% bf, 97kg. Fairly fit and training in preparation to compete in crossfit in 2013. Question: For those of you who are quite active, what worked for leaning out and what didn't? Lately I have been having a day of solid... (more)
I'm a 30 years old male 5'7" and currently 135 lbs with about 10% or less body fat, mostly over my abs. I was 195 lbs two years ago (pure fat.) I'm curious if I tried to gain lean mass, how big could I reasonably get eating strict paleo, without... (more)
