So I just started doing the paleo diet cold turkey and made this lunch and was wanting some feed back on it.

1 head of broccoli 1 large green pepper 1/2 a yellow onion 3 large free range chicken eggs 2 tbls olive oil

I cut up the broccoli, green pepper, and onion. Then I saut??ed them in the olive oil. Once they were cooked I cracked open the eggs right on the mix and cooked until the eggs were done. I put a little fresh ground pepper on for seasoning.

I usually saute it before I add in the eggs. I do eat raw spinach salads quite a bit, which are just a variation of this breakfast (spinach, hard-boiled egg, olive oil, salt/pepper).

It's best to ignore anyone who says that.

Sounds great! Would make a good breakfast too. Some people might nit-pick on using olive oil to saute' in, mostly because it oxidizes easily. IE - you can drizzle it on your food but don't heat the oil. Maybe next time use some butter or coconut oil to saute' in, but otherwise sounds like a great meal.

Sure! Switch out the olive oil for coconut oil, swap the veggies for spinach, add a little dill and salt and that's my breakfast nearly every morning.

Sounds like it would produce a disappointing amount of satiety, at least for me. Next time find some actual cold turkey and throw it in the mix as well. Or better yet, some red meat. Some potatoes would be a good addition as well.

It all boils down to whether you can produce lasting satiety with fewer calories than you used to. On a standard western diet, it's not the carbs or fat that cause the caloric excess, it's the lack of satiety as a result of the low amount of protein, fiber and water in the food.
