Mmm. Grass-fed fish.

“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.”
And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.
I got my height/weight BF% measured by a BUPA consultant woman. I got 19.2% which I was pleased with (I'm a chick). I told the woman i'd like to get to about 18% and gain muscle. Her expression was all shocked and she said 'oh no you shouldn't do that'. I asked why. She told me 'because you'll stop menstrating'.
Face/desk. Seriously? Its not like i'm already super cut. It's not like I told her I wanted to lose weight! I did actually say that I didn't believe a woman loses her period until she gets to about 12% or lower ( I think?), but she shrugged this off and told me I shouldn't go any lower and that I was 'underweight' with regards to BF%.
Wow, well done BUPA. Maybe they shouldn't be hiring overweight old ladies to provide people with body comp advice.
The real question is this: if a man got fat enough would the excess estrogen caused by said fat induce a hormonal cycle similar to that experienced by women of reproductive age?
Or, in layman's terms, could angry fat guys just be PMSing?
In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.
