If you're really eating paleo you should be getting plenty of protein from meat, fish, eggs, etc. and you really don't need to supplement. 80-120 grams of protein, for most people, is more than enough and if you're eating a protein/fat based diet... (more)

Yes the cardio , that is way too much. In fact you don't even need hiit. What I would recommend is 3/week weight training, one hiit session and some slow walks. In fact you don't need the hiit session. Yes weight training and yoga FTW! (more)
