Body Fat Questions
I'm seventeen years old, about a year and a half ago my mom introduced my family to the Paleo lifestyle. As of recently-- like 5 months-- I started swimming competitively again and work out for about an hour and a half non-stop at least 3-5 days a... (more)
We've all heard and seen stories of people being fat and becoming leaner on Paleo diet. What about the reverse? Is there anyone out there who's gone from "skinny thin" to "lean thin" purely by eating paleo? I'd really love to see if so.... (more)
That has a high PC Mick Love ll multimedia tree is also okay if not step it just like you might be just a weight gainer and usually weight gainers our money thrown are the window do not do with weight gainers put your money on whey proteins that... (more)
I have been eating paleo for the past year and a half and have traditionally been a very lean / skinny guy. I have always had a hard time putting on weight, even in the days before paleo when I would carb and protein load to gain muscle mass.... (more)
There is a certain poster that keeps making fun of my bodyweight of 145 as an adult male. What would be the optimum weight for someone of my height and build. BTW, as of yesterday with a 7 site skinfold test, I am at 5.8% bodyfat. For... (more)
I'm a 43 year old female. My BF is 10.3. I train 5/6 times a week. Weights, interval training, bootcamp style, and recently some 30 minute metabolic style workouts. I squat, lunge, pull and flip tyres, dead lift with weights and work my legs very... (more)
Hey all, I don't know if I'm going to word this right because I'm not 100% sure about the question in the first place. Basically I feel like I've inferred some of this from other posts but haven't seen anything that discusses it directly. Onto... (more)
After reading 4 Hour Body last year I started to read up on the paleo diet, I've been eating paleo-ish since. I'm currently training for a competition to go to space in July, if I win in London then I get to go compete in Florida for the chance to... (more)
I am trying to get my body-fat percentage to around 16%. My body-fat is at 20% right now (135 lbs, 5'4") and here's my active schedule and eating plan: Crossfit 3x a week Yoga (vinyasa) 2x a week give or take. I might take a gentle yoga class... (more)
I have read so much on Paleo and seem to get mixed messages. Please let me know if you see anything in my plan that I can change or need to be doing different. I have not lost any weight but my body fat percentage has dropped from 38% - 34%. I do... (more)
My question is relevant to eating at a calorie deficit- I recently had put on a small amount of extra fat, and wanted to lean out to my previous levels. So I decreased my calories, (I track them for now) in a zig-zag approach, eating some high... (more)
I've posted here loads, but it's hard when your mum thinks wheat is healthy and fat is bad. Anyway. I want to lose weight, but I'm not seeing much progress. I'm now weight training 2-3x per week and running 1x.I can feel my muscles getting... (more)
So coming from a background where I used to be super-fat, and then I dropped 130 pounds to be in-shape and fitter through calorie restriction and near daily exercise (crossfit, calisthenics), I can't seem to rid my waist fat. I got OCD about... (more)
I'm 23 years old, male, workout everyday. I follow LeanGains protocol of everyday fasting. I have 6.5%BF measured by bioimpedance, but some time ago, I fell that I'm more "covered", even with the low %BF. After eating, I get more defined. Water... (more)
If you're more defined after eating, especially if it's carbs, it's probably the carbs replenishing muscle glycogen. Water retention also plays a role of course.
I am not left-handed, yet, for some reason, my entire left side body is fatter than my right. I know it is not muscle because I am Stonger on my right. Yet, my thigh, shin, breast, arm, and ankle--all bigger on my left. However, I actually just... (more)
Because you're right-handed, it is likely that your right side is more efficient at movements, so your left side requires more muscle to be equally efficient at those movements.
Hi everyone, I am wondering the effect of the Paleo lifestyle on body fat percentage, particularly for females. Personally, I am finding it difficult to reach a low body fat percentage on the Paleo lifestyle. I've read that women are not meant to... (more)
I am about 90% paleo, and have been trying to lower my body fat percent by about 5%. However, I can't get it to go anywhere! I am about 5'3 and 125 lbs, about 25% body fat. I'm starting to think that my body just likes to be at those numbers, and... (more)
Hi could someone please advise me on the best way to reduce my body fat? My weight and bmi are both normal- 123lbs and I'm 62inches. Bmi is about 22. However body fat is high. Only recently changed to paleo so advise would be gratefully... (more)
Hi Guys, Long time reader, first time poster. Zone Paleo Diet I am currently undertaking a Zone Paleo style diet, making the jump from straight paleo for the first time. The main reason for this is the portioning, tracking and performance gains... (more)
Hi! So I have been on Paleo for about 2 months.. However I do cheat and have shakeology every morning. I eat a decent amount of fruit, chicken, turkey, lots of veggies, fish and occasionally eggs. I excercise regularly about an hour 6 or 7 days a... (more)
You have been paleo exactly 0 months. Drop the shxtology. Seriously. Out of the 40 or so ingredients it includes rice, peas, wheat, and barley and other horrible things. Just stop. Please.
I'm 18 years old, female, 160 lbs, 22% body fat. I started Paleo last summer and I've gradually become more strict with it. I started at 190 lbs and I've hit a plateau which I've been plateaued for at least 3 months. I haven't been losing weight... (more)
I have been paleo for around 5 months and I believe it to be the only way to live now; I feel more healthy and have a better relationship with food: I feel more Grok! I have made progression into weight lifting as well as having gone from not... (more)
So I just saw a question posted on here regarding body fat. I just recently lost a good amount of weight in the past few months and am almost at goal. I still have body fat I want to get rid of, but not lose too much more weight. Anyone care to... (more)
You might also want to try intermittent fasting; eat within a 8-hr window each day (noon to 8pm). During the fast, you might have coconut oil and coffee, which should produce ketones and can accelerate metabolism.
I come from a calorie-counting background and am still trying to get past the calories-in calories-out paradigm. I have lost 10 lbs and only have about 5 left. If I eat more calories than I burn on a given day, are the rest stored? I am a... (more)
I've been thinking about getting a DEXA scan for body composition and was wondering if anyone here has gotten it and if it has helped them in terms of motivation.. or addressing asymmetries in muscle mass.. Did you use it as a way to track... (more)
