You're spending too much time in mTOR. Try working out fasted, and don't refeed until 1hr after workouts... maybe add in some sprints or HIIT. Lower the protein back down and increase the fat in its place.

Can you please provide a typical daily meal plan? Try to be as specific as possible. If you're eating "wholegrain bread" as mentioned in your comment - you may think you're eating paleo but wholegrain bread is definitely not paleo. Use... (more)

Did you try oil pulling for battling the oral candida? and with coconut oil? Seems to work wonders in killing the yeast. IMO first thing would be trying to address this issue as it is a pretty evident one. But dry skin and dark eye circles plus... (more)

If it isn't low carb flu/low salt/low magnesium, it could be histamine intolerance. A lot of paleo friendly foods like slow cooked meat, leftovers/cold cuts, and fermented veggies are notorious migraine inducers in sensitive folks. You can do... (more)

I've started eating about 50-70% fat on most days and I'm wondering how many grams of carbs to eat and when. I keep reading about upping them once a week or post workout but I don't know what ratios to use. I'm also trying to gauge protein. I'm... (more)
