Hi, Two of the most commonly recommended and healthiest fats on the Paleo diet, from what I've seen, are grass-fed animal fat (tallow) and coconut oil. As you may know, tallow has a good omega-3/6 balance and coconut oil is MCT, so... (more)

The "white stuff" is fat and connective tissues, which melt down to make a wonderful, succulent sauce. Also, if cooked long enough, there is a load of gelatine in the bones which make the sauce even more super yummy.Google braised oxtail, or... (more)

Track your calories. 2000-2500 is a good range. Sleep is most important. You have to get your Z's. Cut out sugar and carbs for the first month along with some exercise. You are on the right track, it just takes time.

I know when I switched to Paleo I felt hungry all the time too. Since fat has more than double the calorie density of protein or carbs you aren't filling your stomach with as much volume. For me it just took a while to adjust.

That's quite a bit of n6 in there. If you're trying to gain weight, I suppose it's fine, but you'd need to raise your fish intake.
