nuts are far more calorie dense than fruit. take the nuts out, keep the fruit. it's VLC mythos that fruit will magically prevent fat loss. energy balance will always rule, even if people are too stupid to believe it.
I've been trying to educate myself on ketosis both for fat loss and for increased flexibility (decreased appetite, clarity of thought, ability to fast more easily etc.) but the more information I get the more confused I become. Recently, I've... (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?

I thought of this noticing all the "food" product sponsorships involved in sports (Gatorade, Cliff Bar, etc.). It occurred to me that Paleo athletes wouldn't be able to endorse things like that. Farms are unlikely to have the resources, though... (more)
