Have there been any stories of a lean person gaining body fat on a typical Paleo diet? I am very curious. The reasoning behind the diet sounds fantastic but there is still some part of my stubborn brain that's very hesitant about eating loads of butter and red meat.
EDIT: Just a disclaimer, I know fat doesn't make you fat :-). Paleo seems so appealing, but I am someone who is so used to counting the calories of everything (but I know this is likely unnatural and not healthy). If I am correct, calorie counting is not supported by the Paleo community, hm? Can I really just eat within reason and remain lean? I have already established decent eating habits, as my diet's comprised of 95% natural foods and I'm really happy with my weight... but counting calories is both stressful and time consuming. The Paleo diet sounds like just what I need to free my mind from constant thoughts about food... but first I need to convince myself that I won't get fat eating unmeasured amounts of high fat foods LOL And yes, I know that this is the wrong mindset but it's incredibly difficult to shake! Looks like I'm just rambling now. Thanks for reading :-)
