I'm a active 23 year old male, 6'1, 190 lbs with low body fat. I've been following a paleo diet for the year with good results. I still have skin issues and on occasion anxiety/depression problems and low energy. I'm looking to improve these by following a very limited paleo diet by eliminating possible gut irritants. I will adjust Macros according to exercise as well as focusing on getting 8+ hours of sleep in a dark room. I will basically be eating -Sweet Potatoes -Grassfed Beef -Blueberries -Lettuce -Carrots -Wild Caught fish -Chiken -Celery -Ghee -Coconut oil -Vitamin D supplements Based on experimentation these foods seem to not cause any digestion issues. I'm removing dairy, grain, legumes, nuts and seeds, nightshades, eggs, goitrogens, FODMAPS. I understand the lack of certain micro-nutrients due to limited food diversity. What do you guys think of this approach? Would it be a sustainable diet in the long run?

1/4lb of liver per week would be beneficial.

Probably not sustainable for life, but you could likely heal your gut and add back in some more variety along the way.

I can't eat a lot of veg because of FODMAPS and gas, but spinach is one I find very tolerable - I think you should eat one leafy green and it's more nutrient-dense than lettuce. Also high in magnesium. And make you strong, like Popeye.

Liver and egg yolks. If possible on the yolks
