I have been Paleo for 6 months now, and have had no weight loss. I am an active Crossfitter (5-6 days a week of activity) so I know that while my BF has dropped, my weight has increased because of muscle. I have tried eating NC and VLC to no avail, and have proceeded to go LC(probably around 100 g. daily) and within a few days I feel better and have been working out better and I feel as if maybe this increased carb intake will allow my to start dropping BF (Im around 20 and would like to get to 12-15%) is this because my body is able to recover after my Crossfit workouts, or is my body just reacting to a change in diet? I really do not mind if I dont lose weight, I would just like to continue to cut BF(I would be content at 160 if that meant I was super lean)...as I asked in my last question, is stressing over my macro intakes causing more harm than good when it comes to fat loss?
I am 19, 5'6" and approximately 155-156 lbs. While many consider 20% to be low BF, I still LOOK as if I am at 30%...what are your opinions on carbs (nuts, berries, sweet potatoes, veggies) and keeping the macro ratios more even across the board. How would eating whatever I want...(normal daily intake ends up somthing like this: Espresso and cream with eggs and bacon for breakfast, nuts and fruit post workout (a decent serving), and a piece of meat with veggies)...negatively/positively effect fat loss if I am not stressing over my consumption?
Thoughts? Opinions? Suggestions? I keep breaking through my plateau only to revese again after a week or two because something still isnt right...
