Hay guys and girls. Would love your opinion on protein intake on paleo. Currently I am taking in around 1 gram per lb of body-weight (roughly 180 on recommendations) however i feel this is to high due to not losing weight. All my carbs and fat... (more)

180 grams of protein is a waste. Your body does not have the need for that quantity of amino acids and thus it ends up metabolizing amino acids for energy, a highly wasteful inefficient process. Weight loss however is all about calories, not... (more)

I really like mayonnaise and eat it with a lot of things, almond butter is amazing, bulletproof coffee will get fat in really easily, and I do a lot of coconut milk "milkshakes" with stevia and cocoa powder.

Fatty, homemade bone broth, sausages, homemade almond butter (no sugar added), if you tolerate dairy, goat and sheep cheese. Ribs, pork belly, 80% fat hamburgers, tuna, salmon, oysters with olive oil.

I would say no because you've specified the source as LC veggies. From nuts, yes, because you can get an appreciable amount of protein from some nuts. Seed sources like Tahini are quite high in protein but also astronomical in O6, so I'm doubting... (more)

Your basal amino-acid (protein) requirement is 0.8g/kg to maintain lean mass (52g for you). If you're not eating carbs then you need protein for gluconeogenesis, about 58% of excess protein converts to glucose. The brain needs 120g of glucose... (more)

Get some tallow from a local farmer, or just buy fattier cuts of meat. Ribs and Ribeyes are personal favorites. I've had some roasts with quite a bit of fat too.
