I've read that you start to lose muscle mass as you age. I have been eating 90 to 95% paleo for several months now and have lost weight and have improved overall health. I am running approx. 12 miles a week at a 7-8 min. per mile pace, 60... (more)

You should be eating 1 gram of protein for every pound of LEAN BODY MASS... not present body mass. That would be maybe 200 grams of protein in your case. And even that is on the higher end of the scale. It could be as low as 150-ish. Make sure... (more)

Eat more carbs from starches like potatoes and rice. High fat without carbs will take weight off of you. Add in the carbs and the weight should creep back up.

Try carb back loading and adding some raw milk in there, it's the most anabolic substance outside of steroids. Add it to a post work out shake or something, even if it's not paleo.

Don't trust equations. But don't trust your body, either. Eat more than you think you need. If you want to gain weight, you will have to make some sacrifices. Some people put on weight very easily. You (and I) are not one of them. Eating =... (more)
