Given the info provided, looks like a pretty good breakdown. If you are losing weight, and you don't want to, eat more. If you are not losing weight and you want to, try to eat a little bit less. If you are feeling low energy, eat more and... (more)

With all the recent reports on how chronic cardio is bad for the heart and overall longevity, is Jiu Jitsu considered this? Its definitely a cardio intense sport but its not like running a marathon per se. All the reports ive read focus on... (more)

Train BJJ 5 times a week for 2-3 hours, very cardio intense stuff. Diet is good and I supplement with whey, BCAA's, fish oil, magnesium for overall health/recovery. Thoughts on if this is good for overall health longterm. It seems the paleo... (more)

I doubt its that great for your joints to be close to dislocated everyday. I would take a few days of each week to recover. You also need days just to train weights. 3-4 days a week might be nicer on your body for long term health.

I know this isn't an answer as such but, it depends on what you do well on. What do you usually eat for training? if you put in good work when 'rolling' then base it around what you eat on training day. Maybe add a little more starch than usual... (more)

@hemanvt Hi, I hope this is not too late. Have you found everything you need so far? I am on GAPS Diet, very similar to Paleo. I get all the pasture-fed/organic meat (beef, lamb, pork), bones and free-range eggs from Saturday's Farmers Market. I... (more)

While adapting a full on paleo lifestyle (sleep,food,training,etc) I admit I like to drink alcohol. Craft beer being my guilty pleasure. Usually 5-7 beers a week and a glass of red wine or margarita here and there. I'm a active BJJ competitor and... (more)

Ideally i would say dont drink as drinking (beer especially) has been shown to elevate estrogen levels and lower testosterone levels. Seems like you've answered your own question too since the effect of drinking just 2 makes you feel crappy... (more)

Hey guys, since turning paleo I have been really interested in changing my s&c days into bodyweight splits. I like the idea of having a more functional strength and since turning paleo I have taken it upon myself to look into how else I can... (more)

I think that there are some great responses here, but the answer to your question might be a synthesis of them all; It seems that your goals are, broadly speaking, functional strength and overall body conditioning - presumably, to aid in your BJJ... (more)

I am currently attempting a diet designed to keep me in nutritional ketosis. Today I had a 1 hour class of BJJ, which I attended while fasting, since it was in the morning. My AM ketone level was 1.0 mmol upon waking. I decided to run a... (more)

I had the same effect - my ketone levels went /down/ after an hour long bike ride (it wasn't incredibly intense but I put some effort into it!). Wouldn't a keto adapted body be using the ketones as an energy source during exercise, therefore... (more)

Hello All, I have my first BJJ tournament coming up in November. Without going through my paleo/primal history or my day to day, I just wanted to hear what some fighters and/or bjj players have done for weight cuts. Pre-roll i'm between 204-207... (more)

204 to 202? Dude skip breakfast & take a dump. You're overthinking it. You can always wear a sauna suit while you drive to the event.

I've been really getting into BJJ and want to get as good as possible, so I need to bump my BJJ training up from 2 days a week to at least 4. Right now I do 1.5 hour class (1 hour of technique and 30 minutes of rolling) on an empty stomach in the... (more)

You probably need more calories than most. It may difficult to stuff down all those calories in just two meals. I wouldn't worry about it too much if you eat more meals. The amount of meals is a guideline for the average person. It doesn't... (more)
