One of the healthiest fat that you can get is from bones and bone marrow, which may be added while making stews. This also energizes a lot. Other good sources can be salads drizzled with macadamia or homemade or virgin oil.Dipping food... (more)

Everyone is different. In this respect, I recommend trying a couple N=1 experiments where for a couple weeks, you limit fruit and increase your starchy vegetable consumption, and then try the opposite for a couple weeks.

Eating strict paleo doesn't mean eating low carb. Get lots of tubers and starchy veggies and you can easily get your carbs up to a level you can deal with. 1 cup sweet potato = 40 grams, remember :)

Sweet potato, banana, dates, raisins. All good source of carbs/energy. Sweet potato should be eaten at least an hour before, others can be more of a "quick snack right before" thing (depending on your timing)
