High calorie meals

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created July 08, 2011 at 4:43 PM

This morning i cooked up 8 eggs, 10 slices of bacon in 2 tablespoons of butter. This meal totaled 1740 calories according to myfitnesspal. It was pretty damn good.

I'm wondering about high calorie meals. Do folks out there eat 1-2 high cal meals a day and call it a day? I figured what the hell, a paleo man would most likely fill his belly with a few pounds of meat, pass out and call it day.

well i hate cooking so i figured i'd get a bunch of calories/fat/protein in one shot and call it a day. How is that gluttonous and gross? Yes I am trying to lean out. Does it matter if i'm eating 3 meals or 1 big ass meal and a smaller one latter in the day?

Dooooode... 8 eggs? 10 slices of bacon? Sure, maaaybe this is the quantity that "paleo man" would have ate, but it just sounds gross and gluttonous to me. Whatevs. Eat HO! Consider pulling back if weight loss is one of your goals.

there are none at the moment. I'm playing with ketosis, at least i think i am by trying to keep my carbs to a minimum.

Its not as much food as it sounds once its cooked up and sitting in a bowl. But man that little bowl is packet with calories fat and protein. yes i'm lifting heavy at the moment 4 times a week. I don't do cardio and will go on walks/hikes and thats about it. RIght now i'm slamming back around 2000-2300 calories as i'm trying to lean out. i'm 34.

It depends what I'm doing for the day but I usually eat at least one very high calorie meal. A meal usually doesn't even satisfy meal unless its over 1k cals.

In regards to what paleo man would have done, it makes sense that they would have eaten as much as physically possible when they could.

I don't think a high calorie meal is necessarily a problem. My experience is that it all evens out in the end. If I have a big breakfast I'll probably be less hungry later in the day. I've found that my overall average calorie intake is very steady from week to week, even though I might have a day here and there like you where I have some larger meals. I'd say if you are feeling particularly hungry then eat it and don't worry. As long as your insulin is in control you're not going to overeat, IMO. Your body just equals it out later by making you less hungry.

Do you train or otherwise do strenuous work? I couldn't eat that much food in two days, with rare exceptions. Age makes a difference as well. I don't eat nearly as much as I used to now that I am moving towards middle age.

This is how I break intermittent fasts. It works very, very well for me personally.

I've found that breaking a fast with higher carb meals makes me personally feel like someone hit me with a truck afterward... but eating mostly meat and fat when fast-breaking tends to have me feeling quite good after the meal.

eating that amount would 'incapacitate' (sleepy, sluggish) me for quite a long time: therefore i would eat that as my only meal a day in the evening just before going to sleep

I'm right at 3000 cals daily. I split it up into about 3-4 meals. All paleo. I used to do IF with two meals but I prefer eatin the way I'm doing it now. More fun. Easier to get in more cals, too.
