    homastj saidit depends on the person... even without wheat in my diet I still have a fairly high BF%. with wheat it can easily skyrocket. maybe paleo just isn't for you

    Fairly high BF% in comparison to who? A skeleton? Seriously, if your BF% is "fairly high" then I must be in the "totally fucked" range.

    compared to the BF other people who stick to paleo achieve?

    While that's a fair statement, it's not a good idea to compare yourself to the elite level of anything. Your body fat is very low in comparison to the general population, and that's a good thing. I think you need to adjust your expectations. If you think your BF% is "fairly high," then I think you need to take a visit to your local Walmart to see what "fairly high" body fat really looks like. Trust me. You're not even remotely close to that.

    I just like to set goals and see progress. there's nothing unhealthy about that icon_smile.gif I am quite good at building muscle so the real work for me is controlling BF.

    Or you can add more starches, especially post workout: Sweet potatoes, rice, veggies

    For bulking, Robb Wolf highly recommends dairy. In addition to having some great benefits by itself, the sheer amount of caloric intake one can consume in liquid form is very useful for bulking - if that's what you're talking about by gains.

    Erm where? I donĀ“t think he does.

    Wrong Mark...It's Mark Rippetoe that recommends dairy and really anything else to bulk up.

    I've been paleo for a few years and don't have any trouble doing bulking or leaning out. It's just a question of quantity of food while keeping good quality. I'm not 100 percent strict but I'm pretty close. I drink some alcohol and drink a glass of milk occasionally.

    Anyway, that's not what the OP was after.....if you're hungry, eat. Just make good choices. If you need more fat, there have been a lot of good suggestions on here: almonds, avocados, macadamia nuts, olive oil, fattier cuts of meat. Try to make sure you're mixing your protein, carbs and fat in every meal and adjust the ratios to what works for you. If you want to bulk, up the fat percentages and drop the carbs.
