Hi all,  I'm a first year at my university this year and have been mostly paleo for about a year.  My mile time increased, I felt stronger, more awake.  I slept better.  I love everything about paleo.  Unfortunately my... (more)

Hi, So I was wondering if there is any draw backs or benefits of going from: Two meals (1000 calories and 700) to: 1 Large Meal (1200 calories) and snacking on 200 calories of each: fruit, nuts, meat in between meals. The second option is... (more)

I would go with a banana. The protein and fat from the egg won't help/digest fast enough, and the sweet potato takes a while to digest as well. Have a banana 30 min before and you should be fine

Is it better to get all your calories in one meal so that your body isn't regularly producing insulin or does the body have trouble processing all that food at once? also, the meal in question would be low carb and high fat.

4 eggs and 6 strips of bacon @ 70 calories each = 700 calories. Throw in 100 calories of veggies sauteed in the bacon grease and you're all set.

Timing is EXTREMELY overrated. If you feel good working out fasted do it. Don't wanna eat right after your workout? Don't have to. Just be sure to hit your macro goals for the day at any point and you will be fine.
