It looks like your calcium intake is very low and phosphorus intake is very high. Calcium plays a big role in increasing metabolism and weight loss. There are many PubMed studies on calcium's role in weight loss. The ratio of calcium to... (more)

IMO, too much canned food. High sodium retains water. I agree also , you may be overtraining and not giving your body time to heal and it's considering itself injured and holding all calories.

I know when I switched to Paleo I felt hungry all the time too. Since fat has more than double the calorie density of protein or carbs you aren't filling your stomach with as much volume. For me it just took a while to adjust.

sounds like you are eating very few carbs. The "stubborn belly" could be from a ton of things -- one of which is too much cortisol build-up. You may want to consider implementing more rest days to help your body heal.

Calories do seem pretty low given your stats and level of activity. Sometimes eating too little can actually stop fat loss, especially when you don't have a lot of excess fat to lose. I would increase calories for sure. Take a look at some... (more)

Before beginning Crossfit I lost about 45 pounds on my own. I am a 5'11 female and I went from about 190 to 155 in about 6 months. Like many people I lost most of my weight by eating a 1200-1500 calorie diet, and doing way too much cardio. ... (more)

If you are worried about fat gain, you should get your body fat measured--caliper or bodypod if you can afford it. Scales are notoriously inaccurate--you've likely put on some nice muscle.

First off, Crossfit will probably help you lose more weight without bulking up as much. For Stronglifts, If you can't do it 3 times a week, it isn't a great program. The risk of crossfit is injury. Two different indipendent studies examining... (more)

You're potentially under-eating, if you're doing crossfit workouts 5 times a week. However, I'd argue that if you want to lose body fat, you need to cut back on the workouts, not add more food to your diet. When you're talking about losing that... (more)
