How does one juggle eating enough fat on the paleo diet while also staying at a caloric deficit to ensure weight loss?
From what I understand, even when eating a high fat/protein, low carb paleo diet consisting primarily of meat/poultry/fish and vegetables, you still need to be at a caloric deficit in order to lose weight. But please correct me if I'm wrong, I'm just stating what I've read thus far. I understand that 2k calories/day of plants and animals is not the same as 2k calories/day of potato chips and ice cream. And I also understand that your body composition will be vastly different under both of those scenarios. But what I'm most worried about is eating too much fat which translates into X amount of calories and then not being at a caloric deficit and thus not losing any weight.
Am I being paranoid or can someone explain all this to me?
Thanks for helping to all who respond.
