yes, weight is a great variable to summarize whether you can eat sugar and alcohol. What about body composition? What about your performance in the gym?

I hope this is a joke.

performance in the gym may have improved slightly but is it enough to make the sacrifices? i like to eat. i like to drink too.
im 5'7" 178lbs with less than 10% bf. im quite happy with my body copmosition. i was hoping to drop a few pounds to see if it would increase endurance.

no joke!

What was your calorie intake before Paleo and in the 3 weeks?

Not that I know you, but drugs certainly help the equation... And yes, I do know a little something about anabolic use.

The overall point is a good one for a lot of CrossFitters in that moderation is the key. No one (well, 99% of the population) is going to lead an overly restrictive lifestyle forever.

If you can drink lots of alcohol and eat ice cream and stay ripped, you are the genetic elite. Most people are not and probably need to consume these foods in moderation.

Fat-Free Mass Index in Users and NonUsers of Anabolic-Androgenic Steroids Research Review

Title and Abstract
Kouri EM, et. al.Fat-free mass index in users and nonusers of anabolic-androgenic steroids. Clin J Sport Med. (1995) 5(4):223-8.
We calculated fat-free mass index (FFMI) in a sample of 157 male athletes, comprising 83 users of anabolic-androgenic steroids and 74 nonusers. FFMI is defined by the formula (fat-free body mass in kg) x (height in meters)-2. We then added a slight correction of 6.3 x (1.80 m height) to normalize these values to the height of a 1.8-m man. The normalized FFMI values of athletes who had not used steroids extended up to a well-defined limit of 25.0. Similarly, a sample of 20 Mr. America winners from the presteroid era (1939-1959), for whom we estimated the normalized FFMI, had a mean FFMI of 25.4. By contrast, the FFMI of many of the steroid users in our sample easily exceeded 25.0, and that of some even exceeded 30. Thus, although these findings must be regarded as preliminary, it appears that FFMI may represent a useful initial measure to screen for possible steroid abuse, especially in athletic, medical, or forensic situations in which individuals may attempt to deny such behavior.
((178/2.2) * 0.9)/(1.7018^2) + 6.3*(1.8-1.7018) = 25.8

Means there were some Mr. America winners that had FFMI slightly above 25.4. Might be clean?
