Should I eat more protein, you think? I usually eat till I am not hungry. I was not hungry on that day.

I wonder if your sleepiness after lunch on 12/28 was because of the amount of protein. 2 cans of sardines + 4oz beef is a fair whack. Not saying it is or isn't, just thinking it might be a possibility.

MEAL 2: Half a pound of kangaroo (yes, kangaroo) medallions cooked in butter; duck leg with skin baked in the oven; roasted potatoes in aioli sauce, and butternut squash with broccoli cooked in butter seasoned with garlic powder, turmeric and salt.

MEAL 1: Grilled salmon; grilled beef skirt steak; unagi (eel) sushi; and salad.

MEAL 2: Almost a pound of beef ribeye cooked in butter and mashed potatoes.

yeasterday:

I've broke the fast with a recipe "Cocoanut": a ganache of coconut milk and raw cocoa powder covering some dried coconut. Is solids in the freezer and become something like a Bounty.

At luch i had 4 egg yolks, two egg whites, pumpkin soup, a salad of raw watercress, carrots and lettuce and some lean turkey stripes fried in lard.

Today was just some smoked samon omelet, pork loin, bsteamed broccoli and carrots and a coconut milk and roasted chicory latte.

Um, if I can remember everything, that is.

On the 27th (I was traveling):

  • cup of green tea
  • eye of round steak and sauerkraut
  • beef jerky and a handful of blueberries (at airport)
  • another cup of green tea from airport Starbucks
  • roast chicken (thigh meat) and cabbage soup (water, cabbage, green onions, dill)
  • (post workout) mushroom soup (water, mushrooms) and a cup of low fat, no salt added cottage cheese
  • throughout the day- 2 liters of Evian, some sips of water from the drinking fountain, 2 cups of Green tea, and 1 cup of Roobios tea (with raw honey).

On the 30th (normal day):

  • 1 scoop OxyMega Greens
  • (pre-workout i.) 1 scoop Controlled Labs Purple Wraath (ECAA complex)
  • (post-workout i.) 1 scoop Controlled Labs Purple Psyko (high Leucine BCAAS) with 1 carton coconut water (with Cissus Quadrangularis and r-ALA)
  • lunch (130PM): 2 eggs over easy (cooked in coconut oil), smoked salmon, asparagus (with multi-vitamin, fish oil, and vitamin-C complex)
  • meal 2: arugula and baby romaine salad (topped with a little bit of olive oil) with sliced turkey breast (with fish oil)
  • (pre workout ii.) 1 scoop Controlled Labs Purple Wraath (ECAA complex)
  • dinner (900PM): bison steak, sauerkraut, broccoli (topped with a spoon of coconut manna), and Yukon Gold potatoes

    • ^This is much more typical than the 27th, but sometimes I 2 meals with 1 protein shake concoction or I INTERMITTENT (aka, not everyday) fast and with just a BCAAS and sometimes with coconut water too, until my main meal at night.

breakfast - most days - 2 eggs over easy in butter (or just coffee if i'm pressed for time)

lunch - salad with homemade dressing - white wine vinegar/EVOO/shallots/lemon/lettuce/other leafy greens I have around

dinner - protein and veggie (i.e. baked chicken and stir fry-ish broccoli last night, beef stew tonight, protein is usually whats on sale at the grocery)

Water all day

sometimes a progenex recovery shake (no its not really paleo) after a good workout (also tastes like dessert when I need a treat, but the trick is I have to workout first to get it!)

also this morning tried a bulletproof coffee and LOVED it. Had a great workout and felt no hunger. No cravings (very rare for me).

Yesterday:

Bulletproof coffee x2

3pm: baked sweet potato, no skin

4pm: nutrifusion protein powder, half tsp Saigon cinnamon, half tsp Yohimbe bark

5pm: 3/4 lb ground lamb patty, kale, spinach, onion all cooked in coconut oil

730pm: 1/2 serving ground chia, whole avocado

8pm: can of tuna, Sri racha

9pm: 1.5 Tbsp soy lecithin

I will do pretty much the same today. Switch the lamb with sliced chuck steak, the avocado will be half raw cashew half raw Brazil nut. The tuna will be 8oz beef liver or maybe 3 eggs.

If I work out I take a serving of Gaspari's BCAAs. Also, I'm out of collagen or I take that daily.

Breakfast: 
2 x tablespoons coconut oil 
1 x cup black coffee

Lunch: 
2 x cans of tuna 
3 x boiled eggs 
1 x cup veg
1 x tablespoon butter 
1 x cup black coffee

Dinner: 
2 to 3 x cups of varied colour mixed vegetables
1 x red onion
3 x clove garlic
1 x can sardines 
150g to 300g meat
2 x cups cooked safe starch [workout days only]
1 cup berries 
2 to 4 x tablespoons coconut oil

Snacks (if desired):
Various raw veg

This is pretty much my standard menu for the week, with the specific inclusion of starch on my workout days (dinner almost always post-workout). I aim to eat more calories on my workout days and so throw in more starch and fat. On rest/complimentary days I leave out the starch and probably eat less calories overall.

On weekends I tend to eat a big fatty cooked breakfast (sausages/eggs/etc), have a lighter lunch (tapas/antipasti/etc) and make a large slow stew and or roast with the inclusion of more organ meats and bones, bone broths, different vegetables (squash/pumpkin) for dinner. I will include the bone broth through the week if there is any left on Monday, but normally there isn't.

I basically follow the http://perfecthealthdiet.com/the-diet/ recommendations, but only eat significant carbohydrate on workout days.
