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.

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?
