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)

This is a very, very bro-ey thing to say, but the Vikings ate two meals, fueling a huge amount of physical activity. The non-Olympian really doesn't need to eat more than twice per day, unless you want to (in which case, have at it!).

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)

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?

Not sure why you plan on doing this. But if it's convenience, the solution I use is intermittent fasting (16 hours on, 8 hours off). I break my fast with a large hot meal, and then eat a snack or two later.

Rice cooked in bone broth fried lightly with ghee, small amount of minced beef liver, egg yolks, and salmon. Sounds weird but its really good as long as you keep the beef liver below the taste threshold and let the eggs and salmon dominate. (more)
