I don’t have answers for you, I’m new here too. I have questions, and have eaten paleo (with starch, no grains but carbs were definitely a go) for a few years, and gained fat, lost muscle. I also CrossFit regularly.
Matt’s info is the first that explains why that might be happening, but I’m terrified of the recovery process as it includes gaining weight (possibly)…I figure I’ll adapt my eating also to more nutrition dense foods, no foods “illegal” though, and continue going to CrossFit. I was thinking of leaning to eating for Type A (which may be a reason paleo didn’t work for me) but according to this plan/program/idea then it shouldn’t matter WHAT foods we eat…pay attention to biofeedback to determine what makes you feel good or not, right?
I dunno. But I’m willing to give it a go.
