I totally get where you're coming from. Prior to starting PB a week ago, I kickboxed 5 times a week for an hour, ran 3.5 miles 3x a week and then played 2s sand vball on the weekend. I'm still trying to figure out how to "tone down" my workouts to make them more primal and not undo the good I'm trying to do with my diet. I am one of those rare females who put on muscle easily so I don't want to add in too much strength training and was relying on my kickboxing for that (while much of it is high intensity punching/kicking/sprinting, we also do a lot of lunges, squats, pushups, burpees, situps, etc), but many on here have told me I need to cut the kickboxing WAY back, so I'm aiming for twice a week now. I also dropped the running for an hour of walking 5-6x a week. I feel like I'm doing nothing.
I had my first vball tourney this past weekend and tried to stay "primal" even though I felt like I would need complex carbs. Instead, I added in a dried fruit/nut trail mix and some bananas and was ravenously hungry the next day. Despite having normal primal meals other than during the tournament and some trail mix the next day, I still gained a pound, I'm assuming from the increase in nuts/fruit.
Ugh. It can be confusing!
