Gaining Weight And Fat
Been eating a paleo/primal diet for about 2 years. Never really counted calories or restricted carbs but did occasionally track food for a few days at different times I would average about 2200-2500 cals. Around 50-60% fat, 20-30% protein, and 15-20% carbs (mainly from sweet potatoes and a piece of fruit).I mountain bike or road cycle 3-4 days a week totaling around 4-5 hours. My weight has been fairly steady at 170-173lbs and 9-11% fat. I started BP coffee and IF about 8 weeks ago using 2 tbsp of grass fed butter and 2 tbsp of XCT oil in the am and not eating again till after lunch. For the first 4 weeks both my weight and fat has been trending upwards...so I figured maybe with my activity level I should add collagen protein to my coffee. I've been adding 2 tbsp per morning. Still my weight and fat has been trending up the last 4 weeks I'm at about 173-176 and 12-14% fat. I tracked may food and my total calories to see where I was coming in at. Counting the BP coffee, my macros and calories are consistent to prior to starting this regimen. Anyone have any thoughts? I really like how the BP coffee makes me feel and the fact that I feel satiated till after lunch....but not at the price of fat/weight gain.
