Just starting Paleo. How many times a day do you typically eat? I am used to eating 6 times a day, 3 meals and 3 snacks. I am not sure about eating high fat 6 times a day. Help please!

Eat when you are hungry. Eat as much as you want. I used to eat the way you describe. Measuring and counting. LOL Now, I eat twice a day, as much as I want. Your body will adjust when you get off the carb merry-go-round.

We don't like spam, even if it masquarades as delicious cookies. Cookies are not paleo, neither is spam.

Your meals sound OK. They just need to be a lot bigger. For what you're doing start out at 2000 calories a day and eat more as needed. For example, 3 cans of tuna, 5 sweet potatoes, 3 apples, an egg, half a cube of butter and 4 cups of... (more)
