IF - and only if - the theory regarding omegas sounds plausible to you, I would advise to limit the amount of Omega-6 foods you're ingesting. The proponents of the "omega ratio" theory argue that a ratio near 1:1 is ideal for cellular health,... (more)

Where I live, it is recommended to eat 6 pieces of fruit and vegetables per day. But I hear that many paleo people say that you should not eat very much fruit because there is sugar in it. How much do paleo-dieters recommend to eat? What about... (more)

Since starting CrossFit and Paleo, I've been losing too much weight. In an attempt to gain weight, I have significantly upped the quantity of the foods I eat, as well as drinking a shake every day that consists of one can (about 14oz/900... (more)

Personally I wouldn't drink an entire can of Coconut Milk, I surely don't need all that fat. Consider that maybe Crossfit is too much exercise for you if it and Paleo is causing weight loss beyond what you consider healthy for you. I think a... (more)

Seeing that animal fats like tallow and Lard are fairly nutrient poor(but still better than any plant based oil, unrefined or not), how much of them would be too much in a day for someone eating about 200 carbs per day

It's not how much cooking fat, it is how much gets taken in to what you eat. I run a sample of a days meal through paleotracker or cron o meter to see my % of fat, protein & carbs. I try to adjust accordingly.

Shredded coconut, coconut flakes, dried coconut... Whatever you call it, I LOVE THE STUFF! Its the only way I consume coconut in my diet (no coconut milk, oil, flour) I crave it everyday, and have it by the spoon, but one spoon or two is never... (more)

It's possible that you aren't eating enough fat and your body is craving shredded coconut and nuts because they are primarily made up of fat. Try eating other fat sources but be generous with the serving - avocados, coconut oil, butter, olive... (more)

Hi all, I touched on this question in a previous thread, but I think my opening post was far too long-winded for people to bother with - which is fair enough :) In case you want some background info/my daily diet, see -... (more)

There's nothing at all wrong with eating the amount of meat that produces adequate satiety, just don't get to the point where it's crowding other things out of your diet. It's clear that protein shakes and ultra-lean meats are disadvantageous, but... (more)

I think fat or carbs are more suitable as a primary energy source. Protein is for building/maintaining muscle (and other structures?) and is likely to be say 15-25% of calories. In terms of amount, anywhere in the 0.5 pound to 1.5 pound range is... (more)
