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)
