I've been working toward a paleo/primal diet and am about to embark on a personal 30-day challenge. Can y'all give me your opinions on my typical diet? I'm 21, female, 5'8 and weigh about 166 (down from 228 over the past year). I likely have metabolic issues, I lost most of the weight via calorie restriction and have crash-dieted to the point of hospitalization for grand mal seizures as a teenager. Until about 2 months ago, I was vegan (4 years) and vegetarian for 13.
This is what I have been eating lately:
Breakfast: 1/2 cup of berries + a spoonful of almond butter, usually 2 boiled eggs
Workout: 30-60 minutes of bootcamp style crossfit, 5 days a week, some days are cardio (sprints) but most are strength workouts and met-cons.
Breakfast #2: usually 2/3 more eggs (scrambled in EVOO) or 4oz. chicken breast or a small serving of dinner leftovers
Lunch: huge salad with spinach, mixed greens, cucumber, onion, etc. Sometimes I put a tomato. Also boiled egg, 4oz. tuna or chicken and some balsamic vinegar
Snack: I might eat a scoop of coconut milk or something in here if I'm really hungry
Dinner: (usually lean) meat, about 6oz. with some sort of veggie side. The most common is mashed cauliflower or mushrooms/peppers/onions sauteed in EVOO
Desert: 1/2c of berries, sometimes with coconut milk
Goal is fat loss, no idea where I want to end. Bodyfat% calculators online put me at 27% fat and I'd like to be generally lean. I'm still at a point where I need to work on fat loss, not muscle gain right?
