What does your "Paleo Plate" look like?

by (5809) Updated January 10, 2013 at 3:31 PM Created January 10, 2013 at 1:57 AM

So, we've replaced the pyramid with the plate graphic to describe portion division of protein, carbs, veggies, and fats. What does your paleo version of the plate look like for each meal? (example: 30% meat protein/ 60% veggies / 10% fat). I guess food would be represented by volume on the plate, but you can't really measure melted fat like that :)

My plate looks exactly the same! In addition, I dring a lot of green tea.

On average (referring to my LiveStrong Daily Nutrition Breakdown), I'd say I eat around 60% fat, 20% protein, 20% carbs (with most of my carbs coming from potatoes).

i don't enter my meals into any website, but my breakfast is always protein/fat heavy. something along the lings of salmon cooked in bacon fat with some sauteed mushrooms or ground beef with zucchini. i definitely get way more calories from the meat than the veggies.

my dinner is more carb heavy since it's after i workout. i'd say it's like 40 % carbs.

I am around 1/3 meat, 1/3 veggies, a piece of fruit and then the rest in butter or oil.

I've been tracking on Cron-O-Meter to maintain my weight. It gives my macro percentages based on calories consumed. I am averaging 50% fat, 25.6% carbs, and 23.7% protein. I'd like my protein/carb ratio to be 1:1 so I'm pretty close.
