Ep 167: How to Build Muscle While on The Paleo Diet

Over the years working with clients and athletes one on one, I have dealt with the question “how do I add muscle while on the Paleo Diet” numerous times. A listener of the show recently sent me this exact same question for the Ask Gary Anything segments, and I realized I hadn’t addressed this ever in The Simple Life with Gary Collins Podcast. So I decided to dedicate an entire episode to this question, as it is a common one when people dig into the Paleo diet and dial in their eating habits and the Paleo lifestyle. To my women listeners, don’t think this doesn’t apply to you, as it does, but you will have to listen to the episode to understand why.

I know for most, this seems like a strange question: Why would it be so hard to add muscle mass while eating Paleo? Once I explain the reason(s), I guarantee there will be a “lightbulb” moment for most.

Topics Discussed:

  • A quick recap – what is the Paleo Diet?
  • Why it is so dang hard gaining weight on the Paleo Diet.
  • Why our bodies are much wiser than we think they are.
  • Why building muscle is important for women just not men.
  • Why sometimes you have to trick your body to get it to do what you want.
  • A brief discussion on the 1st leg of the Three-Legged Stool of The Simple Life.
  • Why resistance training is so important.
  • Why lifting weights is for men and women.
  • Why building muscle when you are a women doesn’t mean turning into the Hulk.
