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)
What has worked for you?
Hello paleo hackers, So I have been paleo for about 6 months and have not seen any weightloss yet. I thought I was eating perhaps too much and too many carbs. So started using cronometer and have tracked and made an effort reducing carbs... (more)
Hey all, my current diet is about 50% carb, 30% protein and 20% fat (fat and protein percentages will interchange depending on the day). I exercise almost every day so I don't want to get my carbs anywhere below 25% and my carbs are paleo... (more)
I am trying to improve my understanding so as to overcome a fat loss plateau. I'm interested to know if anyone knows if there is any good evidence that says it's best to eat fat/protein/veg at particular times of day. I'm persuaded that meat... (more)
Hi all, I know cheese and dairy in general are a gray area in Paleo. However, should you decide for its consumption, what types of cheese are in terms of macros the most interesting? I am aware its best to have cheese made from raw, full-fat... (more)
Does anyone have an accurate source for the macros of purple sweet potatoes? I'm interested in both the purple skin/white flesh and white skin/purple flesh varieties. I've seen both ~86 and ~130 calories per 100g thrown around, with little... (more)
Fat-lovers advise us to fast at least occasionally. Depleting readily available glucose causes the body to burn fat, leading to fat-adaptation and all manner of good outcomes. Conventional-wisdom carb-lovers advise us to never fast. Depleting... (more)
Okay, straight up, I'm new to this. I'm coming from 80/10/10 high carb raw vegan (yeah I know what you're thinking), so I'm about 1 month into Paleo now. I'm doing a ton of research daily, but I don't know if I'm really getting the whole picture,... (more)
I'm keen on becoming fat adapted, but when I research it all I can find are people looking to get into ketosis (which personally, I'm not interested in) I was wondering if it was possible to become fat adapted while keeping carbs at 100-150g? Is... (more)
I want to collect a diverse sampling of what foods people rely on, and see if any good or new ideas come up, as well as to just get a feel for what the community seems to prefer. Please format your answer as follows protein: x food fibrous... (more)
I've seen and tried all types of different ratios for macronutrients (protein,fat,carbs)such as 50/30/20, 25/35/40, but I always end up cheating, going carb crazy and eating non pale foods for the whole weekend. I have a serious issue with portion... (more)
So for some background on me, im a male 20 years old 175 lbs. I did a bodybuilding competition earlier this year and i hated the diet i was on so i recently made the switch to paleo. when i first started i saw awesome results but now it seems its... (more)
i don't think you're counting calories accurately, but low calories will not have any impact on your ability to enter ketosis. i mean, you enter ketosis when you're starving to death.
to OPTIMIZE the performance of ones explosive training or heavy lifting or even hypertrophy work, eating the lowest amount of protein\fat required(and not being deficient in any way) and filling the rest of the calories with carbs would be... (more)
Hello there! I am a 15 year old female, who is very serious about being fit and healthy. I am now running about six days a week, 30-40 miles, and weightlifting three days, full body. (I use to lift weights a lot more, but I guess my hormones were... (more)
Hey guys, I've tried to look up some other threads and I still couldn't find an answer to my question. When you're eating towards your protein intake for lean body mass do you count the protein from fat and vegetables? For example, my lean body... (more)
Hi Everyone! I have been stalking paleohacks for a while now and just signed up today. I'm on Day 1 of my new paleo lifestyle change and thought it would be the perfect time to join the fun. I have a quick question though: I am struggling to get... (more)
I have been drinking lots of kale smoothies with kale, cucumber, celery and avocado. I would think that these smoothies are largely fulfilling my need for vitamins and minerals. As for macronutrients, I was wondering how grass fed beef jerky and... (more)
im currently eating a high carb\low fat on the days i train, and low carb\high fat on the rest day(protein is a must).. my question is, does the macronutriens really matter...can i build muscle(calorie surplus) with fat instead of carbs, or the... (more)
What are you eating most days to meet your macros? Are you eating lots of fatty meat, or eating moderate fat meat and eggs and then adding fats to them like olive oil, nuts, butter, etc? I'm not quite sure if I'm doing this right. I eat... (more)
So this is my 3rd day on Paleo, and I just spent some time going back over what I ate and calculating the calories on LiveStrong.com I had a pretty weak lunch, but I'm still way off on my fat:protein:carb ratios (I've got pretty much a 1:1:1:... (more)
move up to 4 eggs instead of 2 use more butter coconut oil as mentioned above add fatty fish like salmon, sardines which will cover the omega 3s also you can work a little macadamia nut / oil in there as well
Does anyone know of any research on this? I have long thought that women don't thrive as well (I'm not saying they don't thrive at all, chill people) on a diet which includes very high fat, possibly because we naturally have more metabolically... (more)
Hi all, Looking for a bit of advice from you nice folks... I'll start by saying that I know you cannot spot reduce, however I also know that certain dietary practices (eg. grain-free) are very helpful for losing belly fat, so I'm wondering if... (more)
I was just wondering if anyone on here does a high protein diet? What happens when you eat a diet primarily of protein with low carbs and low fats? I remember reading once that what your body cannot use of protein, it wastes. Does that mean you... (more)
