I have been doing primal for about 6 weeks. In that time I GAINED weight (5 pounds) and clothes became tight, although I do admit I felt better overall. I am pretty much at a target weight and have a more muscular build (for a female) so I assumed the gain was muscle (unwanted, but oh well). I know I have a gluten senstivity. I have been tested for celiac but it was negative. I've been eating nearly gluten free anyway, even before primal. I have a difficult time staying to primal because of how much muscle I tend to pack easily when i eat that way. I don't want it! I have enough! Do you think cycling gluten free and primal would be beneficial? When i was eating GF things were fine. I was the weight I wanted to be, body fat was still low etc but eating primal upset all of that-even though, again, i felt awesome. I'd love to have that "awesome feeling" without the gain. I'm an elite endurance athlete and extra pounds means extra time on the clock. By cycling I'm thinking 2 days primal/1 day GF with that 7th day (when I have no workout) IFing? Thoughts?
