Seems ok, but try it for a little while and see how you fee. Not sure you need 48g whey protein, rather than just eat a little more. You are already getting a lot of protein, so I don't see the need to supplement.

Here's some of my simple pointers: Avoid refined sugars. Avoid grains. Avoid legumes. Do body weight exercises wisely (I recommend Convict Conditioning or Mark Sisson's Primal Blueprint Fitness) Portion Control: Start with a serving of meat and... (more)

Hello I'm trying to get an idea of what 100g of carbs via veggies and fruit looks like. I've more or less cut grains out completely but before I started learning more about paleo living I really stepped up the fruit and veg intake (about 10... (more)

3-4 apples or 200 oz. of broccoli. If it's green then it'll be a ton! If it's a fruit then it will be much less. 3-4 cups of berries, 4-5 pears, etc. just mix and match until you have what will keep you full.

For a 14 year old girl eat as much as you want from the approved list and don't concern yourself with portioning. Do, however eat slowly and pay attention to your hunger signals. Do pay attention to emotional eating. And do get out and have... (more)

Liver pate. Cut to cubes, saute briefly in ghee with onion and garlic, throw in white wine near the end, let it reduce. Blend or use a food processor. Add bacon for extra goodness.

I feel like I eat way too much on paleo. I don't know if it's just in my mind or what, but I need help! I seem to end up eating about 3lbs of meat a day, plus about 10 eggs. I am also running about 60 miles a week though, so that could be a... (more)

5'8" and 145 is not overweight. obviously BMI is not the best measure, but you are on the lower end of normal. You said your body fat is at 13%, that's into the essential fat area which is not healthy (for most people). But you asked about... (more)

Eat to fullness, eating "Paleo" items. I know restrictions of any kind can trigger my binge desires, but knowing I can eat as much as I want, I feel better. Make sure you are getting enough good fats and proteins. If you want some guidelines,... (more)

Tonight I ended up feeling really full... actually bloated is the better way to put it. I started freaking out (probably irrationally) about how much I ate. I started thinking back to the dark days of calorie counting and decided I'd count the... (more)

Don't sweat it. The cortisol response of worrying about this is probably doing more damage than the extra calories :) 2500 calories doesn't sound unreasonably high. You probably have days where you eat <2000 as well. Unless you find yourself... (more)

If you're going somewhere with notoriously small protein portions, scarf a hard-boiled egg/jerky/almonds in the car right before you go in; not enough to damp your desire and hunger, but just enough to tip th e balance. When caught by surprise, I... (more)

when do you have your biggest meal of the day? smallest? or do you tend to eat the same amounts at each meal? also, do your meal sizes correlate with your hunger or something else?

I go by what my body is asking for. I used to try to analyze it, but now I just go with the flow. If my body is asking for a big breakfast then I go with it and it's not asking for much I go with that. It works. Usually though my body seems to... (more)

I'm about to get my first order of grass-fed beef. I'm getting a split-half. How long does this last most paleo families? Approximately 85lbs of beef. The ranch's website said it lasts some families a year. I'm wondering if I can even get 3 months... (more)

I eat roughly 3-4 lbs of beef/week. With the 3 of you let's say about 8 lbs/wk so maybe 10 weeks. Probably 8 weeks if you have guests over.

So a lot of us in the Paleo community love Dr Davis's blog. Without using the word "Paleo", he seems to be taking Paleo head-on in his latest blog post: http://heartscanblog.blogspot.com/2010/04/plant-based-or-animal-based.html Uh-oh. I tend to... (more)
