Your meals sound OK. They just need to be a lot bigger. For what you're doing start out at 2000 calories a day and eat more as needed. For example, 3 cans of tuna, 5 sweet potatoes, 3 apples, an egg, half a cube of butter and 4 cups of... (more)

I know it's a normal (well, common) progression for paleo peeps to end up having only 2 meals a day. I've gone from eating 5 times a day (3 meals, 2 snacks) to now just 3 meals. I like food too much to cut down to 2...as it is my workmates think... (more)

Depends on your metabolism and activity level and how much you eat and what you eat. If you give the fatty acids a place to go, such as muscles due to increased exertion, then they'll clear your blood faster. If you have a slow metabolism then... (more)

Check out the cookbook "Well Fed." The whole first half is about how to cook up the basics on the weekend, and then mix and match for meals during the week. Great ideas.

I tend to go to the store and just grab some produce, meat/seafood, and then make a stew with that until I run out. Then go back and do it again with different vegetables/meat/seafood variations. What are your go-to meals?
