Just wondering if anything in this menu seems wrong for my young pretty fit cousin who is active for most of the week.
She skips breakfast, so lunch: avocado, brussel sprouts with olive oil, small bison burger and 2 organic chicken sausage
Snack: about 1/2 cup of coconut flakes
Dinner: large piece of salmon baked, large amounts of cauliflower with olive oil and sundried tomatoes, kale boiled, and tea with a couple tablespoons of coconut milk
She's about my size: 5'2 115ish pounds and exercise varies from walking, yoga, or running, no HIIT.
I think that is a great diet. There are carbs mixed in with the fiber in those vegetables (brussels, avocado, coconut, sundried tomatoes). It may seem like it's too low, but I think it is great for a ketogenic diet (assuming that's what she is going for). And, if her weight is stable and her energy level is high she is probably at the nutritional sweet spot for her body. We should all be so lucky!
Sounds great, and is not too far a cry from my own diet which is a little higher in fat to keep my binges down (I eat a lot more eggs, grassfed beef, bacon, and a lot less fish or chicken). My calories end up being fairly low (sub 2300 most days, fairly scant for this muscleheaded male), but 65-70% fat and I'm never hungry. That looks to be 45-55% fat depending on portion sizes which is just about right for many paleo dieters, especially if she is already fit.
