I am an avid CrossFit-er and have been eating Paleo for a little over a year now. I have recently decided it's time to lean out just a bit more and see how fasting helps with body recomposition as well as gains in my lifts/metabolic conditioning... (more)

I found the portion sizes rather confusing too. It seemed too easy, if that makes any sense. Eating paleo is delicious when you're creative. I would try looking up paleo recipes. I have found that I slip up, when I'm bored, so make cooking... (more)

In terms of cooking, your best bet may be crockpot meals: you can toss a bunch of ingredients in the crockpot before you leave for work and come back to a complete meal, no other cooking required. They also generate a decent amount of food in one... (more)

You are half an inch shorter than me, and my weight. Sister, I'm sorry...but if anything, you need to eat more and worry less about your weight. You cannot change genetics.

For fat loss, I would do 100% strength and low-intensity exercise like walking, and 0% cardio. My primary form of exercise used to be running (csrdio) about 12-14 miles per week. I got ok at it but never felt great and never lost weight. One day... (more)

Maybe try singles and doubles instead of 5's. Super low volume, 95%+ of 1rm, and a Keto diet. It's worked for me, and I know Matt LaLonde has recomended it as long as you skip sprints and metcons.

All of the literature I've read has been confusing. Robb says carbs/protein, Sisson says he sometimes fasts, and on and on. But here's where I'm confused: I'm on a relatively low carb paleo right now, getting 25-75 carbs/day. I keep them low in... (more)

If you are on a diet, low om carbohydrates. Would I recomend you to concentrate the carbohydrate intake 1-2 hours before your WOD, so your energi is on max under excercise. Then dont eat at least one hour after training.
