I have been a chronic cardio-er since grade school. I ran cross crountry from then through college. After having 2 babies I continued to fun "fun runs" 5k-10ks here and there. I paid not much attention to what I ate. I know whats healthy; whats not (degree emphasis on conventional wisdom nutrition) and I have an addiction to Dr. Pepper and in love with BREAD of all kinds. I have never had a weight issue, staying around 115lbs (im about 5'2) I started Primal because I want to consume more healthy stuff. I have been eating a Big A salad everyday for lunch skipping breakfast usually but do have coffee with heavy cream and a tsp of sugar or having a boiled egg, then some kind of meat with veggies for dinner. I have way cut back the dr pepper almost completely and have kicked my sweet tooth for the most part (huge chocolate/donut/brownie/cookie eater) and only indulge in 80% dark chocolate chips if Im dying! Then I might snack on almonds, blueberries and thats it almost completely cut out oats/grain wheat! WHY AM I GAINING WEIGHT? Today I weigh 124 at 5'2! I have been doing the WOW and sprinting once a week. I play everyday with my 2 sons, catch, tag, hide and go seek, jump on the trampoline, we are VERY active take leisure walks almost everyday! I have started doing kettle bell work outs again 1-2 times a week too. I think some might be muscle gain but Im not convinced. Could I be gaining muscle weight? What am I doing wrong?
No announcement yet.
HELP - Why am I gaining weight?
