paleo organic bootcamp gut-health been reading for awhile...
I would like to hear your thoughts and opinions of my Paleo diet sounds.
3 scrambled organic eggs with 1/2 tbsp of melted organic valley pasture butter 2-3 pieces of organic bacon Handful of blueberries sometimes
Sometimes I will do fat free yogurt(9 grams of sugar per serving) with a handful of blueberries just out of habit
Lunch: This depends on where I'm working that day (construction) I always eat a full organic advocado no matter what
Left over 85/15 grass fed beef patties and a mixed green with kale salad with organic mushrooms, organic Bell peppers, broccoli, and usually a hard boiled egg. Always olive oil and balsamic
Grilled chicken breast with salad
- Grilled chicken tacos without tortillas
- Or my huge vice a freshly made ceaser salad with grilled chicken
- Wild salmon and broccoli sauteed in pasture butter and garlic
- Grass fed beef organic patties 85/15 with sauteed in pasture butter and garlic mushrooms, onions and broccoli with a balsamic and red wine reduction this my favorite dinner at home
- Grilled chicken and salad.
- At the end of the work day 5pm a few times a week ill eat a small handful of almonds maybe 10 or so.
I have been known to drink a few glasses of wine 2-4 night's a week but I have been cutting back. I also do a boot camp at 5:30 to 6:30 am 3-4 days a week. I am 26 years old and weight 158 lbs I'm 6ft tall. I've been eating this way for a few months with the occasional beer or 2 here of there. Since going paleo/primal I have tons of energy and have put on quite a bit of lean muscle. I am doing this to avoid heart disease and try to cut my lower abdomen fat and just tone up as much as possible. Any and all insight is much helpful

I'm relatively new to this diet and your post inspired me and gave me a bunch of meal ideas! It seems like it's working for you and I hope it continues to!

All looks pretty good! My only recommendation would be to consider adding some probiotics into the mix in the form of fermented foods like sauerkraut, kimchi or kefir to name a few to help support your digestive system.

Seems pretty solid IMHO. If it's working well for you, I'd only say stick with it. I guess you oversimplified the menus just not to go way too deep in the explanations, but just in case that is not, I'd only suggest to try to add a little more variety.
Don't see many tubers in the menu, maybe a good addition on stressful days, to give the system a break. I know some think that carbs are totally unnecessary but some others have found that going very low with just fibrous types (aka greens and veggies) have shut down their metabolism pretty much... maybe some of them once in a while won't hurt. I also don't see coconut anywhere, don't think that It should be a must but most people here is in love with it :) Seaweed are also pretty good, if you didn't considered them and don't find them gross, maybe would make for a nice addition occasionally. Some other lean protein sources like squid, octopus, oysters, tuna, turkey... may be good additions.
Also, I know that nowadays there's that bacon craziness all over the paleo-sphere but If I were concerned about heart health... maybe I'd keep an eye on this and try to rotate it with other more lean sources. Having something on an every-day basis may be too risky. We know that currently there's the common trend that saturated fat from bacon is not bad, but there's also the nitrites thing, etc. and you never know when tomorrow some study will find out that it is the worst thing in the world (see coconut that went from very bad to amazing)... better be safe than sorry IMO.
