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 guys! Im an 18 year old female powerlifter, about 5'5". I dont weigh myself because of a past with eating disorders but Id guess Im 130-135lbs. I eat VERY healthfully. No processed food, everything is cooked at home. Animal... (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)
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)
A delicate topic I know. I do not wish to offend. I think there have been some studies made about holocaust survivors, their diets in the Nazi death camps, health, disease and longevity, or lack of same. Does anyone know about any data and/or... (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'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)
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.
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)
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)
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 been working out for 4 years, just got a real gym membership so I can lift heavier. I also eat clean, very healthy, all cooked at home. 16 yo, 110lb female, 5'5.5", around 14% BF. Want to loose fat, gain muscle. Here is my... (more)
???one that you can simply enter foods and weights of foods into, and it gives you accurate numbers for those foods? Or perhaps just a comprehensive list?
ignore me, i looked the other day and nothing came up, must have typed the wrong search term by mistake. i looked again after posting this and loads came up. In short: i'm an idiot! xD
Hi, I need some advice. I'm overweight/obese and about 3 months ago I decided to do something about it and went paleo (or well, technically primal since I still eat yoghurt and use butter for cooking). So far it's been pretty great... (more)
Hmm, now that I think about it I stopped losing weight around the time I stopped eating fruit completely. I'll try adding it back in a bit and see how it goes. Thanks!
I run for about 20 mins a day or will do some relaxing yoga, but in college I don't eat much, about 1,500 and now that I'm on break I checked and I really am having a tough time eating the full 2000 I'm apperantly supposed to get being 5'7,... (more)
Apparently 10 Tbsp of red wine vinegar, for instance, has over 28 calories but just 0.4g carbs, 0.1g protein, and no fat. The numbers for distilled vinegar are even more weird. I'm pretty sure its not very alcoholic but is that where those... (more)
This is more just a conversation piece and musing. We all know the three macronutrients and the energy they provide us with. They do other things, but we mostly eat energy all day. Paleos usually prefer fat. Calories per... (more)
I think alcohol is probably fine. Keeping the dose to 1/2 the amount it takes for you to feel it probably eases the load on your organs. And if you dont abuse it it probably wont take any time off your lifespan unless you're old or infirim. I... (more)
Before beginning Crossfit I lost about 45 pounds on my own. I am a 5'11 female and I went from about 190 to 155 in about 6 months. Like many people I lost most of my weight by eating a 1200-1500 calorie diet, and doing way too much cardio. ... (more)
If you are worried about fat gain, you should get your body fat measured--caliper or bodypod if you can afford it. Scales are notoriously inaccurate--you've likely put on some nice muscle.
Hey everyone First off- 5'7" tall, 17 year old male, 114 lbs, currently doing Rings 1, a gymnastics ring training program (which is entirely upper-body) 3x a week, and plyometrics for lower body work 2x a week. (with yoga 1x a week, then one... (more)
I recently started Paleo and I have found it super difficult to get anywhere close to enough calories. I'm a 5.4 female that is slightly overweight and I eat till I'm full every meal but those meals are barely making it to 1000 calories total and... (more)
I'm 18, female, 5 ft 5 and don't think i'm getting enough calories. I eat liver once or twice a week, but i struggle to eat fatty meat. Sometimes on a Sunday i'll have roast beef.. I hate all the other meats and I don't like bone broth. My typical... (more)
I'm wondering about the effects of a diet that is high fat but still very low calorie, about 1300 give or take. What the effect would be on body composition, weight, maybe even hormones? I upped my fat intake about two weeks ago. I did so... (more)
I have been on paleo for six months plus now, though not 100%. A typical day is three eggs and chicken burger (just mince chicken with spices)and a glass of vegetable juice (spinach, carrots, cabbage) for breakfast; a salad or chicken curry for... (more)
I'm 5'1 and 100 lbs, and that sounds like less food than I eat. I'd say up the calories, and try the carbs!
