I have mentioned before in a few post that I have noticed strength, endurance, and pure muscle mass gains while losing body fat. It has just been over a month of SimpleFit and the changes in my body composition and performance have surprised me endlessly. I went to the hospital today for a regular check-up. Three months ago when I had just started getting somewhat serious about nutrition along with smarter exercising, I weighed in at 171 (at the hospital). My waist size was 31 or 30 and I had about 11% body fat. Today, at the hospital I weighed in at 173 pounds. My waist size is between 28-29. Body fat is hovering around 7-8%. Only conclusions I draw from my situation is I have put on two pounds of lean muscle in 3 months (Wonder how only one month of SimpleFit affected this). Conventional wisdom would dictate it quite possible to lose body fat while restricting calories and do the opposite with more than maintenance calories. I don't seem to fit that formula. Since starting SimpleFit my average daily caloric intake has increased to 3000 calories a day. I have continued to lose body fat and my strength gains have increased (not excluding, I have more muscle mass). I attribute all to the SimpleFit protocol including the Paleo style eating. Diet/Recovery have 60% to do with performance and body composition in my opinion. Exercise and other variables account for the other 40%.
Note: I eat about 80-90% Paleo everyday, with Zoneish guidelines, you can see what I eat in my Fitday log.
