I know there are a ton of these questions on this site. But what gives? Been eating Paleo for a year and never seen the abs I was looking for.
Here's what a typical day for me looks like: breakfast-3 or 4 eggs with some berries. i like to do avocado or bacon with berries, but they're not in season and some herbal tea lunch-mixed green salad with cut up carrots and cucumbers with fresh shrimp and homemade EVOO dressing. i usually get a sweet tooth at lunch and have lately been eating a piece of fruit with my salad. dinner-grass-fed meat (usually beef) and a vegetable. i use a lot of coconut milk with my cooking and haven't had the luxury of buying other meats like pork or lamb lately, just beef so a little sick of beef and not even having an appetite for it anymore. which leads to another sweet tooth at night.
CF 4x a week,try to sleep at least 8 hrs per night. try to only eat when i'm hungry but my hungry pains will come suddenly and they come strong and if I'm not around food, it's just unpleasant. I have an EXTREMELY high stressful job-trust me, i'm trying to change it and seriously feel like all my problems are related to the stress of this job-when i up my carbs like adding a yam or two every other day, i don't feel as anxious. but is that what's causing my inability to develop abs? i've tried working out fasted-didn't see a difference. i still PR fasted and not fasted. I've tried to not "stress" over eating carbs and that sort of worked, but it's hard to imagine eating carbs is making me lose weight bc that goes against what paleo science tells us. i will also eat nuts and never see a weight stall. i've tried going low carb and that made me super anxious. i've tried zoning and that made me hungry and hate food bc i was more worried about the measurements instead of just enjoying what i had, i've taken breaks from CF to de-stress and i always looked thinner and felt lighter when i did, but I can't give up CF...I've got competitions to work towards and I'm a trainer. like seriously, what gives?
am i missing an important key point somewhere? or is it just me? thanks all!
