I have been following a paleo diet for about 2 years now, and it has resulted in face fat, or you could call it a double chin. I am otherwise pretty lean - dont know my bf% but have a 4-pack, so 1-2% away from a 6pack.
Whenever I eat alot of carbs, the face fat goes away. I usually follow a strict paleo diet, but there have been a few times where I have gone on vacation and just let myself go for a few days. While more carbs/grains result in some overall weight gain/belly fat, they also help the double chin go away.
I am actually pretty self conscious about my face and I really want to figure this out. I have a feeling that this is due to some sort of hormonal response, but I have no idea what. I'd appreciate any help, thanks alot!
