I have been following the paleo diet for a few years, i had a break over the christmas period and easter period, i have been super strict since easter, training hard and generally very active (sport science student).

I have been looking to strip down (summer is coming!) and i am looking to get my body fat down from 18% to 15% if not lower.

I am being very strict and training hard but just seem to hold the weight round my mid section, what could i do to shift this!

I am 5ft 10, 20 year old male, i currently weigh 14 stone, would quite like to stay at this weight, but want to decrease my body fat %.

What can i do?

Thanks for the reply! I try and get a meal/snack down me every 3 hours or there abouts. So surely my cortisol would be lowered as i am increasing the metabolism and making sure i am not becoming catabolic. What has these herbs in, or where could i find them? Thank you.

this comes down to energy intake, yes, calories. know what you're taking in, and then work from there.

Sounds like a cortisol (stress hormone) issue from calorie restriction. Try experimenting with herbs like Gelatininzed Maca, Ashwaganda, Reishi, Mucuna Puriens for hormonal balance.
