I don't fully eat "Paleo" but I do advocate high fat in a diet and eat ONLY whole, unprocessed foods. When I do eat grains or legumes, I ALWAYS prepare them in the traditional manner of soaking and sprouting.
I am 16 yo female wanting to gain muscle and loose fat (or at least not gain any). 5' 5.5", around 108-110lbs, 13.8% BF. I want a career in holistic health and fitness and most everything I have read for the past 5 years in nutritional studies/books/blogs, so I do know proper nutrition... I just want other opinions on this, as I am always open to more info and ideas.
I am VERY dedicated to diet and fitness. I train daily (wake up at 445AM on school days), and cook all my meals healthy at home. I LOVE doing this!! I just haven't been seeing the results I want in training yet and am wondering if I need to be eating differently?
I feel bad for eating sometimes because I can EAT! But I know I have to eat to gain muscle.
Here is my training schedual:
M HIIT and Chest
W Plyo Legs
TH Power yoga
SU HIIT and yoga
I don't count macros really. I keep a diet log but mainly focus on eating whole foods.Here are my eats for the past two days, each logging in around 90-105g fat.
