So it seems like if you're trying to make your Paleo dollar stretch, it would be a good idea to cook your expensive grass fed steaks, etc a bit past raw/rare to get the most out of it. If you're trying to lose weight, eating raw foods would be a good idea. I prefer the taste of rare/ medium rare steak myself but now I won't be upset if it comes closer to the medium spectrum. Obviously, you don't want to overcook anything to avoid nutrient loss.
What are your thoughts?

I think it's more that when you cook something it reduces in size, so if you're having more cook foods you'll consume more. For example, 100g uncooked spinach would make a nice big salad, but if you cook it down as a side you'd use double or triple as much because it shrinks down to nothing. Not that calories in spinach matter, just using it as an example.
