I'm a female ex-athlete in my mid 40s whose weight had been slowly creeping on carbs (and too much wine), but have been primal for about 2.5 months now and lost 16 pounds (now 132 lbs at 5'8"). I am concerned that my lean mass is dropping (and can't for the life of me) understand why my body fat would be rising (26%). I do 3 good strength sessions a week, a couple of good walks and some stretching. I am eating about 50g of carb 50 g of protein (i listened to Dr. Rosedale on the low carb experts show and his warning about eating too much protein) and 100g of fat (which I never get to). Any ideas??

Weight going down, but body fat percentage going up. Why?
