I started crossfit not too long ago and noticed drastic strength improvements within a months time. However, the main reason I wanted to start crossfit was to lose weight, however, I wasn’t experiencing any weight loss. I decided to change my diet into a paleo diet with a few exceptions like milk and protein shakes. After a few weeks instead of losing, I actually started gaining weight which was the last thing I wanted. So I went to strict paleo, eating mainly chicken breast and fish with lots of veggies and about 2 servings of fruit a day. After two weeks of strict paleo, 1 hour of cardio a day on top of my crossfit lifting in the evening I’ve gained another 5 lbs… I’m not sure what is happening to have the constant increase in weight, but please help! The following is a sample of the average of my diet for the past two weeks.
I don’t know how accurate this is, it’s based upon using the “Lose It!” App
Please give me some advise on what I can do to actually lose weight… Thank you.
