- Paleo Diet
- Calorie Counting
- Grams Per Day
- Protein Consumption
Hey guys, I'm a 20 yr old female that recently started eating paleo (again). Right now I'm consuming approx. 1,200 calories per day; although, I'll admit, sometimes I consume closer to 1,000. I realize this is probably too little, but I'm... (more)
Hi everyone, I'm new here, but I'm planning to start the Paleo diet the beginning of February, and I have a few concerns. I have digestive problems that have gotten dramatically worse over the past few months, and the doc is no good( says it's... (more)

- Paleo Diet
- Food Tracking
Hello, I am aware of people using myfitnesspal, apps, and websites to track their rough intake as a whole. My problem is how do you know what grams of protein,fat and carbs look like on a plate? So lets say I need 95 total grams of... (more)
I am a quite healthy individual, trying raw food, fruiterianism and paleo in the past. Now I am on a so called standard diet with everything included except gluten in any form.... My biggest problem has never been weight gain, only negative weight... (more)
Check out Sam Feltham's 21 Day 5,000 Calorie Challenge... as he eats a Paleo diet! I don't know if he ever says "Paleo" but that's the kind of foods he's eating on this experiment. The high calorie numbers say he should gain weight, but given... (more)
I need the calories but I am sensitive to some of the more tastier fats, like coconut, avocado, and nuts. Is there a way I could sneak in more tallow in a tastier connotation? Maybe a sauce or something, where I can't taste it directly?
Are the benefits of fasting due to less stress on your gut and if so would a low calorie form of fasting be as beneficial, say eating a few egg yolks and coconut oil/butter a day? Or would this confuse your body and negate the positive effects of... (more)
I'm a lean & healthy 27-year-old guy who's been eating paleo for two years. Typical day I eat 1/3 lb of meat, 6 cups veggies, 2 cups fruit, 2 tbsp oil, 1/4 cup nuts. That's roughly 1.2Kcals, 43g protein and 20g fiber. I haven't eaten any junk food... (more)
is it possible? I've asked for high calorie advice before and everyone just tells me to eat nuts, and I really really don't tolerate nuts, except coconut. Does it really make sense to go through cans of coconut milk a day? I want some variety,... (more)
I don't understand. The basics of any paleo diet is the demystification of the modern nutrition concepts about calories and how our body copes with the nutrients in different ways. Nevertheless, people here are still talking about how much... (more)
I've been paleo for nearly 6 months, and have lost 20 pounds so far, but am starting to stall. I'd like to lose 20-30 more via a low-carb, high-fat ketotic paleo diet.I've been in ketosis for about a week now, and I feel good. I'm not abnormally... (more)
Get more physical activity rather than cutting more calories. I don't see any reason (save medical emergencies) that an adult should go below 1,200 calories per day.
I am having 500g of mince with fat = 1000 cals In two meals Then I have an egg yolk, some goose fat, tallow, duck fat and coconut oil. Barely hitting 1500 Carbs make me feel really awful even veg. I think I have leaky gut so avoid... (more)
Hello! I have a problem, again..... I am on a diet where I want to lose 10 to 30 pounds ( 5 ft 8, 150 pounds) and I eat 1350 NET calories according to mfp, 500 less a day. I make the deficit almost only by moving more and exercising... (more)
I've been told by multiple online calorie calculators that I must consume under 1300 to maintain. I'm currently eating around 1500 AT LEAST, most of the time probably around 1700. I wonder what the discrepancy is? 1300 seems like such little... (more)
I am a female 5'8, 125-130lbs and maintain at around 2000kCal/day. I run a few miles every other day and have to walk a bit at work. I agree with the others that you probably need at least over 1500kCal a day to maintain.
Hello, As of now, I have been eating paleo for over a year. I was rail thin when I started, and the diet has been an attempt to control autoimmune issues and an assortment of debilitating health problems, not to lose weight (I had none to... (more)
I just put my eating data on cronometer.com and saw that I was 45% fat, 30% protein, 25% carb. I was fine with that and everything but then saw that I was eating only 1700 calories a day. That is like 900 cals under what is recommended for me... (more)
Sorry, long post. But I need advice... I am not necessarily new to the paleo lifestyle genre; however I am now trying to really hone in and focus on specifics. Before, I wasn't counting calories or tracking ratios. I am not thinking in a... (more)
Just wondering how much you guys typically eat (more specifically those who weight train). I am a 16 year old female, 5ft 5.5in. My weight has been fluctuating lately (I try to not weight myself though) and I think I'm around 115lbs. It is... (more)
http://jn.nutrition.org/content/127/10/2000.full Seems that fibers in leafy vegetables convert largely into O3 fatty acids in hominid models at a rate of approximately 170 calories per 100 grams. Does anyone have any evidence that humans... (more)
On one hand, my stomach feels full pretty often. Like on the verge of feeling bloated. Full, but not overly uncomfortable. The only time I have an empty stomach is when I wake up in the morning. On the other hand, my mind is telling me to... (more)
I noticed something... I don't get what's going on. Either I have different genetics or I am a cyborg or something. On a GOOD day I get about 1000 calories. Most days I get around 800 calories. Everyone says this is low but I been doing this for... (more)
The following is the 100% ugly truth: In the last 24 hours, I have literally consumed 15,000-20,000 calories of pure, sugar junk food. It started around 4am last night when I got up to have some greek yogurt. Sleep never came, and the... (more)
I have posted before about my concern with how much I eat. I apparently need to gain weight if I want to get my period back, but am scared of doing so. I am a 16 yo female, 5'5.5", about 110lbs. I have had disordered eating habits in the... (more)
Not to be rude, but you post like everyday obsessing over your weight. If you want health and vitality, stick with Paleo. You might gain a little. If so, it was your body's way of telling you that needed to happen. I promise, you won't get "fat"... (more)
I'm almost positive that I'm in ketosis (metallic taste in my mouth, seem to be losing fat) however, I feel like I'm hungry more than when I was just doing a more typical version of Paleo. I've attached what a typical day of food looks like for... (more)
