I've been eating Paleo officially for 4 days now. I want to know if I'm eating right. Most information out there is gender neutral so I'm kind of confused with how much of what I should be eating. Female, age 23 5 feet tall I currently weigh 203 lb Goals: weightloss, energy, and reduction of pcos symptoms. No period in 10 months.
My days are looking like this Morning: grapefruit and eggs, eggs and bacon, or left overs. Sometimes coffee and 1/4 cup coconut milk no sugar. Lunch: 1 cup to 1 1/2 cup veggies sometimes cooked in clarified butter with some sort of meat cooked in coconut oil. Snack: small portion of fruit. Grapefruit, apple, black cherries, berries, or pear Dinner: usuallly stir-fries, more veggies than meat. Or veggies and fish. Usually accompanied by avocado, tomato, cucumber salad.
I've been trying to listen to my body. Eating when I'm hungry. If I get hungry late at night after drinking water to make sure I'm really hungry and not thirsty ill have an egg or some nuts or something small along those lines. When I'm craving bread or grains ill eat more vegetables or fruit.
But all in all I'm averaging 60% fat, 20% protein, and 20% carbs.
Inot really exercising yet, and not getting enough sleep. Haven't seen much change except for sleep quality is better, 3 lbs weightloss and more frequent bowel movements.
Am I on the right track?
Am also taking multi-vitamin that includes vitamin D and omega 3 supplement.
