The more I think about it the more I think that I may be taking the wrong approach to all of this. I think a 24 hour fast 1-2 x a week may be more manageable, and fit in with my "schedule" much better. I feel that over complicating things takes... (more)

Turns out my concept of Paleo meal was a bit restrictive/flawed. I used to think one needs to have meat in all the 3 meals in the day... Just to make out how I can work things for myself... how many of your meals per day consists of meat/egg? (more)

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.
