I would advise you to get off the zone and stop being so calculated with your eating. Eat tons of meat, eggs, fish, and protein. Eat starchy carbs around workouts. Eat lots of veggies. You're a 17 year old male, 136 pounds is ridiculous. Eat more... (more)

Why do you care about the number a piece of metal and plastic tells you? Just eat what makes you feel good.

Crossfit and Paleo are in bed together because crossfit is about improving performance as much as possible. In that regard, I notice Paleo improves my ability to perform at a high level so it makes sense to keep it up. I think Paleos tend to say... (more)

First of all you don't need to get sore to build muscle, and the longer you train the less frequently you will experience DOMS. Furthermore, soreness is induced mainly from the eccentric portion of a lift, so doing a 1 rep max on deadlift there is... (more)

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.

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.

It sounds like you do not eat enough for your activity level, so your body is trying to hold on to fat stores because of higher cortisol consentrations. Up your carbs a bit, and your total calories for a few weeks and watch the weight come off. (more)
