Hello, I lost 30lbs a year ago, in order to maintain that weight loss, i changed my whole life. I went strict 100% Paleo and began a 6 days per week workout regimen.
I have been slowly gaining weight since last year after the initial loss, and trying to figure out why my body is so determined to be 30lbs heavier (which puts my BMI at just before obese)
I have not gone back to my pre Paleo ways of eating -(no sugar,no dairy,no grains) My only unclean eating happens if i eat at a restaurant and always choose Paleo meals, but can't control the oils etc.
I found this article in the NY Times and was wondering what people think of this?
I feel like this is happening to me. NO matter what i eat, no matter how little i eat, or how much more i eat (to try and not under eat) My body packs on body fat like it is its only job.
Currently eating around 1500-1700 cals - 5'9 I was 135-140 last summer...currently squeezing into my pre weight loss clothes Size 12 which is what I was wearing when i was 160-170...so I'm guessing I'm around there again. The numbers don't matter....the fact that I was wearing size 6 last summer and now squeezing into a 12 is the problem.
Am i doomed to be this fat? and have this body fat %... I don't see what else i could possibly do.
Tried it all...IF (cortisol issues) VLC Keto, mode carb 70-100grams..ive taken my cals down to 1200, 1350...1500 etc...I track every morsel of food i consume on a calorie counter.
I really don't understand...
