Last I posted I asked about keto. I tried it for 4 Weeks and ended up gaining 5 pounds, despite my tracking of macros, calories and whatnot. I decided keto was not for me because of my Crossfit. I have moved on to try IF and have been IF-ing for about 3 weeks now...and have continued to gain weight.
Eight weeks ago I was about 152...I currently sit at 162. While I am sure a good bit of this is muscle, I have yet to drop an ounce of body fat. I am getting to the point where no matter what I do I cannot seem to drop body fat. What would you recommend I try?
I started Paleo at about 150 in May of last year. My goal is to get my body fat to around 20% (I'm about 28% now). I am 20 years old. Female. Crossfit 5ish days a week. Walk 2 miles about 5 days out of the week with my dog. Ride horses and have an active job. I can't continue to get any bigger, this is getting out of hand. I really need help.
I eat lots of protein, have adequate levels of fat, and good sources of carbohydrates. I do not eat dairy often, however I do use kerrygold butter weekly.I drink lots of water, and alcohol is usually a glass of wine or two once or twice a week...if that (occasionally I'll partake in the stereotypical college nights...but not often)
What would any of you recommend I try? Should I get my blood work done? Hormone levels tested? Any suggestions?!
