Hack my D-D-Diet

Answered on August 19, 2014

Been paleo style for about 8 months now.

Lost maybe 15 pounds, feeling healthy etc.

Breakfast: 1/2 tumbler of coconut flesh mixed with 2 raw egg yolks, pinch of turmeric (+ ground black pepper), splash of Polish kefir, spoon of probiotic full fat yoghurt.

Lunch: beef and tomato meatloaf (150g, not pastured, 20% fat), with unpasteurised cheese on top + 3 tablespoons of veg mash (steamed sweet potato and carrot, lots of butter) + thin slice of blue cheese.

Once or twice a week I have 200ml of soured cream instead - simple substitute.

Dinner: Varies alot - sirloin steak/duck breast/salmon fillet (twice a week)/beef stew/bacon omlette/beef liver & bacon (once a week). Sometimes I have the veg mash on the side, other times fried mushrooms. All fat consumed.

On the liver - I have made pate, which is very good, and eaten a bit every day with lunch. I prefer that to taking the weekly liver in one go, but not doing it at the moment.

I take about 2 medium potatoes on the weekend - not fries.

Oils for cooking - strictly butter ghee and refined coconut oil. Some butter and cold olive oil FCP. If I come across suspected omega-6 I try to balance out with a cod liver oil pill.

Also on daily basis: Salt - probably 1/2 teaspoon of sea crystals. 1/2 teaspoon virgin coconut oil while brushing teeth. Water - 1.5l. Mug of coffee with 10g of 85% chocolate and dash of cream. 1/2 tumbler beef broth.

Lately I've stopped fruit & green veg. No nuts.

Calories don't bother me, nor ketosis. Just wondering if this has nutritional balance. I know opinions vary on dairy and on carbs.

Bit longer than I expected. Comments welcome.

edit: Only added sugar is dextrose in home-made ice cream, one bowl a week (or three). Fructose is a NO.

Alcohol: vodka, wine - sweetness minimised, ie. NO fructose.

Thanks for replying. I don't have a PhD in paleo - does anyone? - so I rely on science bloggers for my information. The diet I've put together comes from those sources, but I'm aware that I may have screwed up.

I was eating spinach & rocket, but came across some views that veg is just junk. Easy to give it up, but I've put the greens back in. Puree spinach is great in stews, and fresh rocket with a splash of balsamic vinegar just tastes good.

dude, nothing anyone else thinks matters if what you are doing is working. If you stall, or get into a funk come back with a specific question that you want answered. otherwise trust your body (which you already know)

Errr, nutritional balance? Some might think too much dairy. Too little carb. That kind of thing. But thanks for reading. Some of it.

What is your question? You basically listed a bunch of foods that almost no one here will disagree with.

You obviously you know a good bit about eating Paleo, and you are doing well (healthy, lost weight) on your eating plan.

Are you just looking for a pat on the back?

Why have you stopped eating green vegetables? That does not bode well.
