So glad to have found this great resource for Paleo information - eating like our ancestors did has always made sense to me, but having a framework and extensive scientific information to help guide the way is making it so much more accessible, despite my busy modern life.
I have been using a diet/exercise tracking app for some time, and it has helped me to keep an eye on how my daily diet actually adds up in terms of target intake. Now that I am shifting into a more Paleo diet though, I find that my daily intake routinely exceeds the upper limit in categories like sat. fat and cholesterol. This is to be expected, of course. I've been scouring the web, and I know it's not a priority of Paleo to track these things, but I'd be very curious to see any information on target daily intakes (tracked in grams/mg) for the following:
- Sat. Fat
Since the conventional RDA information doesn't fit the scale of a Paleo diet at all, I'm hoping someone might point me toward some numbers I can use to calibrate my tracking app? I'm a 30 yr old woman, not an uber-athlete but generally active and moving into a Paleo lifestyle to lose some weight and achieve better overall health. Thanks in advance for any tips!

I think Chriss Kresser's new tool is going live this week and will be customized for ancestral health eaters. Right now it's a green area on the right side of his web page but will be a live diet/tracking tool very soon.
I'm not plugging it but will check it out myself when it launches.
