It's not about calories or meal plans. It's about getting to know your body and your needs. My advice would be to start eating Paleo -- I'd recommend the stricter "30 day plan" to start. Then, eat when you are hungry and don't eat when you are not. (more)

Sounds like the problem is that you're hungry because you're not eating enough: One egg and a couple of tablespoons of olive oil = ~310 calories, plus an insignificant amount from brocolli and mushrooms and a total of 6g of protein. Assuming you... (more)

The simplest thing would probably be to follow a modular approach to your meals. Pick one protein (chicken, beef, eggs) and one steamed or stir-fried vegetable for every meal. Since you're an athelete, I'd also make sure you're getting a good... (more)

Could I eat eggs, meat/chicken/salmon, avocado, butter, broccoli, kale and spinach and cover all the nutritional bases? Anything to add/remove/change? Berries and nuts, for example?

No. I would in fact make sure the butter is grass fed, to improve your low K2 intake. I would add some seaweed to counteract the goitrogenic effects of kale and broccoli, and I would eat at least a pound a day of your green veggies.

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.
