I am new to primal/paelo eating, though I have been gluten-free and mostly dairy and sugar free for some time. I am 6'1, 225, 49, fit. My goal is to lose bodyfat as I maintain/increase muscle. My workout plan is P90x (second round) and I am happy with it. I have been eating primal for a couple of weeks now, and am in week six of P90x. I am dropping weight, but it is and alway is a very slow process for me.
Here is an approximate typical day for me, eating-wise, and I am using Fitday to keep track:
Two omega-3 eggs scramble in tsp of clarified butter, slice of bacon, 0.5 slice of millet bread with pat of butter. Coffee black (only one cup a day)
1.25 cup of unsweetened almond milk 0.33 cup of blueberries 1.5 scoops of rice protein powder 3 tblspoons of coconut oil 1 tbls of heavy cream, organic All blended into a shake
Snack (post workout):
1 tbls of almond butter .25 of medium apple 3 small blocks of 88% organic chocolate
8 oz of pork tenderloin 0.5 cup organic sauerkraut 1 cup steamed broccoli 1.5 pats of butter 2 gluten-free gingersnaps
1 oz of roasted almonds
For yesterday, I ate 1943 calories (though most days I am in the 2400 range, more typically). I had 57% fat (118 g), 31% protein (140 g), and 13% carb (65 g).
Again this is pretty typical eating for me. I went through a definite "low-carb flu" but feel better now. Any hints or suggestions are welcome, and Im happy to be onboard here.
