I am a 32 year old female, currently 121 pounds, 5'1, desk job, crossfit 5x a week in the evenings after work. I have been about 85% paleo since June 2011 and strict paleo for the last 3 months. Although I have lost some weight and gained some... (more)

Glycolytically demanding exercise 5x a week + IF is a really BAD IDEA for most people. You just can't possibly refill your tank on broccoli in less than 24 hrs especially if you aren't eating for most of them! Combine all of the above + Tea or... (more)

Has anyone every come across a grass-fed/finished farm that sells very tender meat? I've ordered quarter cows from a few farms now, and while I've enjoyed a lot of the meat, I find that the steaks and briskets tend to be tough. Part of the issue... (more)

Look online for grassfed Wagyu (the Kobe beef breed.) They're naturally very marbled. It's mighty pricey, though. :-) If it were me (and it is) I'd just get the best grassfed locally I can get and smother everything in grassfed ghee for extra... (more)

I noticed some paleos took issue with meat in the paleo diet being described in the media as "lean". Isn't it true that wild and pastured meat tends to be quite lean? Farm animals in factory farms are fattened up, fed lots, kept in a sedentary... (more)

The "lean meat" stuff just gets tiring. There's no reason why you just can't say "meat". The only reason to throw in "lean" is a) You think fat is bad, or b) You don't want to scare you audience, who thinks fat is bad.

So I am getting some conflicting information from this site. A Lot of people here put more emphasis on meat + fat. However Mark Sission and Dr. Cordain describe the diet as a lot of green with a little lean protein. All of the books I have stress... (more)

Kitavans eat mostly carbs, Inuits eat mostly animal fat. Both are super healthy. Swiss and Mongolians eat the largest amounts of dairy (raw) and they are two of the healthiest and longest lived groups on earth. I have lots of vegan friends who... (more)

I posted a question several days ago regarding my weight loss. It's stabilized and is slowly going back up to where I want it to be (thank you everyone for your ideas--been drinking some goat's milk every day and including more starchy foods). I... (more)

Hand-held or scale 'biometrical impedance' devices are simply not accurate. If you're on the skinny side by BMI, they will tell you you have have very low body fat. I've had scales tell me I have 10% body fat, LOL. In reality (DEXA and calipers)... (more)

I a beginner IF'er, with about 8 months of 95% paleo eating behind. So far I've had good progress, but I'm still looking into leaning a bit. I'm currently 6'1 and about 174-176 lbs, rough estimate of BF is somewhere around 15%. The Leangains... (more)

Sounds like someone found leangains.com :) I've been following leangains for 6 weeks or so. I've gained 4 lbs. in that period, but I don't seem to have accumulated any more fat. On workout days, I keep fat fairly low. I generally eat a pound... (more)

Now that I'm becoming somewhat serious about exercising, I'm interested in calculating my body fat percentage. I am seeing two kinds in the market: (i) Stand-alone ones you can hold which seems to be using electric current; and (ii) one that... (more)

we use both of these. One requires a cloth sewing tape measure, the other requires body fat calipers (about 6 or 8 dollars from amazon.com). On me, my wife, and our teenage son they are always about 1% from each other (one says I am 14%, the other... (more)

Is it better to go Paleo "Lean" when coming off a "cheat" weekend. And by lean I mean low fat for the first few days.

I'd go high fat, medium protein, and very low carb or no carbs. That is how I recover from a "cheat". I find that eating "naughty" carb foods makes me feel a bit groggy the next day, and I also get sharp hunger pangs for a day or two after. I... (more)

First question - so hello all! Ok, I would like find out some opinions on adding some lean size and what would be required to do so... I've been paleo for a good 6 months and enjoy it (with the occasional naughty!). 80kg, 6ft and 9%bf (tested in... (more)

The body adapts reluctantly ie there needs to be a serious effort to acquire lean gains. So you need to lift heavy things, probably to a point of (almost) failure, eat accordingly and recover. If you follow your current routine and up the... (more)

I am new to Paleo and have been researching as much as I can with a toddler by my side. I have read some of the Perfect HEalth Diet and Dr. Kruse and Lean Gains. I do like to IF but if I do it in the morning..say wait to eat till 11 after waking... (more)
