Norms regrading being 'female' need not dominate you, nor the a number on the scale. If you're healthier then must those things matter?

You're probably right about keeping your protein to 170g or less.  If it were me, I would monitor blood ketones to find your protein tolerance level.  Start at 170g and work your way up until you're out of ketosis, or work your way down... (more)

Answer: Chillax. Stress from worrying about it probably worse than the issue itself. Source: Today I ate lots of pizza and cake and it will not affect my weight or even wellbeing in the long term.

Does anyone else find this about their body while on paleo: If I work out 1-2 days in a row, my body instantly firms up. I'm a 20 year old woman with a strong sports background and I'm curious if anyone else's muscles respond this quickly?

I suspect you aren't eating enough. 85g of fat contains only 765 calories. If you're eating 50g of protein (1g/kg), that's only 965 calories. Given your apparently active lifestyle, you are either eating a lot of carbs or you're not eating... (more)
